Atheists and Satanists intent on hijacking Christmas for their own propaganda purposes have been intruding on traditional holiday displays on public property. Those displays have often been intentionally sacrilegious to attract attention. Now a Florida woman is facing charges after she stood up against a particularly offensive display.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - The Florida state capitol has been ground zero for the war on Christmas for several years. Atheists and Satanists have insisted on joining Christians in putting up dioramas and displays that promote their religious beliefs despite the fact that the season isn't holy to them in particular.
The displays are often intentionally sacrilegious, designed to elicit responses from viewers. Atheists insist that Jesus is a "myth" while Atheists all the way from New York decided to depict an angel falling into the fires of hell with the message "Happy Holidays from the Satanic Temple."
The Satanic display is intended to offend Christians who arrive at the capitol to enjoy the Nativity scene there, a reminder of the true meaning of the season as a religious holiday.
The infamous Satanic display, intended to antagonize Christians.
The over-the-top display by the Atheists proved to be too much for one Catholic woman who decided enough was enough.
Susan Hemeryck, Catholic hero, 54 began tearing the Satanic display apart.
She was arrested for her deed and charged with criminal mischief.
While we do not condone vandalism of any sort, it is easy to understand why Hemeryck was upset. Christmas is a distinctly Christian holiday. Hanukkah also occurs in the same season. However, atheists have no religion, and Satanists have no reason to celebrate the birth of Christ. So their displays are publicity stunts intended to subtract, in a meaningful way, from the real meaning of the season.

This can be frustrating to some who do not believe Satan ought to be glorified, especially before children. Frankly, such speech borders on obscenity. And what are the atheists doing exactly?
Hemeryck told police that "I just yanked that little devil" and she "wanted to take a stand against Satan."
Well, good for Susan Hemeryck. While we wish you might have chosen a slightly different manner of protest, we understand your frustration and we pray for you and for those who put up these displays, and or all who are righteously offended by them.
The displays may be legal, but they're certainly immoral and they're wrong. They're mean spirited and fail to convey the true meaning of the season.
We pray that we put this behind us, and we invite everyone, of all persuasions, even Satanists and atheists, to join us as one community during this holy season of Christmas. May we find peace and rejoice together and share the saving message of Christ, for unto us a savior is born!
