from scpr.org: A Florida rabble-rouser wants the city of Deerfield Beach to allow him to say a satanist prayer at the beginning of a council meeting. Of course, Chaz Stevens’ request comes after the Supreme Court ruled that sectarian prayer before a government meeting does not necessarily violate the Constitution’s Establishment Clause. Stevens has a history of exploring the separation of church and state in dramatic fashion: In December of 2013, for example, he was allowed to set up a Festivus pole — made of empty beer cans — in the rotunda of the Florida state Capitol. In a short phone interview, Stevens tells us he had just recently converted to Satanism. It was the first time, he says, that he had committed to any god.
