Diocese of Green Bay Expresses ‘Dismay, Discomfort and Shock’ Over Satanic Tree

-

“Allowing a traditional understanding of Christmas to be usurped and desecrated by an organization/cult is divisive during a time of the year that we come together in unity as a community. Christmas celebrates the birth of Jesus Christ.” -Bishop David L. Ricken

The Catholic Diocese of Green Bay is strongly objecting to a satanic tree displayed at The National Railroad Museum in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

Satanic treeThis year, the National Railroad Museum in Green Bay displayed a tree representing the Satanic Temple of Wisconsin in their Festival of Trees display as written about by WRN columnist Stephanie Soucek.

In a press release, Bishop David L. Ricken of the Diocese of Green Bay said, “Displaying a Christmas tree with bright red lights, inverted crosses, pentagrams and other satanic symbolism, with a snake wrapped around the tree where our savior belongs, is not something families and children should be exposed to at any time, but most especially during this Christmas season. The tree is offensive and harms the unity and joy that the Christmas season brings.”

“Allowing a traditional understanding of Christmas to be usurped and desecrated by an organization/cult is divisive during a time of the year that we come together in unity as a community. Christmas celebrates the birth of Jesus Christ.”, Ricken said.

Satanic treeBishop Ricken said he would be writing a letter to the Board of Directors of The National Railroad Museum and “invites all Christians and all people of goodwill to join him in writing a letter, sending an email or making a call expressing outrage over this offensive display.”
