(Worthy News) - A “snaketivity” gifted by the Chicago branch of the Satanic Temple stands in the Illinois Capitol rotunda this month alongside a nativity scene and a menorah.

The so-called “snaketivity” is a statue of an arm holding an apple in its hand and a snake wrapped around the arm. The sign on the piece reads, “Knowledge Is The Greatest Gift.”

A spokesman for Illinois’ secretary of state told the State Journal-Record that the Satanic Temple is recognized as a religious organization, and awarded the same freedoms and rights. [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More...) ]
