Florida rejects group's bid to install Satanic display

A Satanic group's bid to put up a display at the Florida Capitol is being rejected by state authorities.

During this year's holiday season several groups have allowed to put up displays in the rotunda because the area is considered a "public forum."

A Nativity scene has been installed as well as a six-foot Festivus pole with beer cans around it. State officials this week also approved a display from a group called the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

But a request from a group calling itself The Satanic Temple has been denied.

In an email to the group Wednesday, the Department of Management Services called the proposal "grossly offensive." The proposed display features an angel falling from heaven into an open fire.
