Evil-Free Zone, next 5 miles.

Okay, here's what happened:

  1. The mayor of Inglis, Florida felt inspired to ban Satan from her town by writing a proclamation against the Evil One on official town stationery. These she placed by the entrances to her town.

  2. A local woman (and then the ACLU) took offense, saying the ban (in its implied officiality) violated separation of Church and State.

  3. Local Christians took offense at their offense, claiming discrimination against Christians. The mayor says it's her "freedom of expression."

Hint: If you want to express yourself, use typing paper. On town stationery, you can't ban anthropomorphic personifications.
