Florida Capitol's Holiday Display Now Includes A Spaghetti Monster
After making headlines with the Festivus pole brought in by Deerfield Beach's Chaz Stevens, Florida's Capitol building continues to welcome holiday cheer from every denomination.
Early Wednesday, the Tallahassee Democrat reported the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster was the latest to take advantage of the Capitol's rotunda, which is a public forum and cannot discriminate among displays of free speech or expression.
The Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, whose members are called Pastafarians, has existed in American popular culture since 2005 and is "a real religion," according to the website Venganza.org.
