Stevens applied to display the Festivus pole because he wanted to make a political statement about separation of church and state after learning that there would be a nativity scene at the capitol, according to the News Service of Florida.

"I still chuckle, I literally can't believe there will be a pile of Pabst Blue Ribbon cans in the state rotunda," Stevens said.

The Freedom From Religion Foundation, a group based in Madison, Wisc., also applied for a secular display in the Rotunda. The group has placed a banner in the capitol that reads, "At this season of the Winter Solstice, we celebrate the Birth of the Unconquered Sun — the TRUE reason for the season."
