I don’t like this display. I find it offensive. But my views on the display are a bit different than people like MAGA worship-leader and Christian nationalist Sean Feucht:
To be short and sweet, I don’t think any religious symbols should be displayed in the Iowa capitol building or any capitol building for that matter. Religious freedom is the right to worship freely and express one’s religious views without government interference. It has nothing to do with religious displays in capitol buildings. Of course, many on the Christian right do believe religious freedom has something to do with religious displays in capitol buildings. Well, if that is their view, they will need to deal with this Satanic altar for a couple of weeks.
This is why I’ve argued that American evangelicals need more secularism.
