Satanic Temple Places Statue Among Holiday Displays In Illinois

The Chicago chapter of the Satanic Temple has gifted the state capitol an interesting holiday display...

Sitting alongside a Nativity scene and a menorah will be a sculpture called "Knowledge is the Greatest Gift," which depicts a woman's forearm clutching an apple. 

While some people are a bit....perturbed about the installment, Illinois Secretary of State spokesman Dave Druker cites their First Amendment rights.

He says the Temple, as a religion, has the same rights as every American and "This recognizes that." 

This isn't the weirdest addition to the Capitol Rotunda though!

One person was allowed to install a piece inspired by the Seinfeld Festivus pole in 2008 to protest the commercialization of Christmas.
