Christian organization leader says satanists & trans activists are “defiling” Christmas
Author: Molly Sprayregen
The president of the anti-LGBTQ+ Catholic League is fuming over an LGBTQ+-themed Christmas tree at the National Railroad Museum in Green Bay, Wisconsin as part of the venue’s Festival of Trees.
Donohue said that the LGBTQ+ tree, in addition to one provided by The Satanic Temple (TST) of Wisconsin, was part of an “anti-Christmas scam” and blamed it on the National Railroad Museum CEO Jacqueline Frank.

“When asked why she allowed the Satanists, she invoked the tired refrain of inclusion,” Donohue wrote. “According to a local Green Bay news source, she said she ‘would not reject an organization simply because it goes against certain values or ways of life, traditional or not.’ Really? So if the Klan wanted to be included in an event honoring Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., Frank would welcome them?”
The Satanic Temple isn’t a group of devout worshippers of Satan. Instead, it’s a group of people who organize as a religion and use humor to “highlight religious hypocrisy and encroachment on religious freedom.”
Donohue said that TST’s tree is illegal because it implies “hostility to religion,” which the Supreme Court has deemed unconstitutional.
Donohue also misrepresented the Satanic Temple’s abortion stance, claiming it “justifies abortion at any time of pregnancy and for any reason, seeing it as a source of liberation.”
No pro-choice organization believes abortion can take place at any time during pregnancy. In reality, the temple’s website states it “is taking many steps on behalf of our members and those who share our beliefs to establish exemptions from laws that do not promote the health and safety of patients and violate our conscience and beliefs.”
Green Bay’s Republican Congressman Mike Gallagher also freaked out about TST’s tree. He told Fox News, “It’s impossible to overstate how offensive this is to Christians” and said it’s comparable to “waving a Hamas flag inside of a synagogue.”
“We’re just trying to defend basic traditions… from the encroachment of woke ideology or offensive upside down cultural propaganda,” he said, adding, “We need to be vigilant as parents.”
Among many others, the museum also has a Lego tree, a tea tree, and a hardware tree.
