The American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana filed a second lawsuit against Franklin County, alleging its officials violated the Constitution by not allowing certain groups to erect their own displays outside the county courthouse.
The Satanic Temple, also called The United Federation of Churches LLC, is an international religious organization based in Somerville, Mass. The group's local chapters in other states caused some controversy late last year.
In December, its chapter in Florida put up a display depicting an angel suspended over a fire at the state capitol, according to The Washington Post. The display, according to a report by The Tallahassee Democrat, was a response to Nativity scenes that have been displayed at the state's capitol. The same month, Satanic Temple supporters erected a display featuring the snake from the Garden of Eden sitting in front of a pentagram at the Michigan state capitol.
