Michigan Senator seeks to resurrect nativity scene in response to Satanic display at state Capitol


It’s Christmastime again.

State Sen. Rick Jones is attempting to resurrect plans for a Christian nativity scene outside the Michigan Capitol.

Jones confirmed his effort Monday evening after hearing that a Detroit chapter of The Satanic Temple will set up its own holiday display on the Capitol lawn.

“I’m a little outraged that a Satanic group has decided to steal a Christian holiday,” said Jones, R-Grand Ledge. “…As a Christian, I think it’s important that we respond to this.”


I’m sort of both sad and glad that I moved out of Lansing, Michigan years-a-go. :shrug:
