Chaz Stevens, the atheist responsible for erecting a Festivus pole made of beer cans in the Florida capitol, is now threatening to sue the town of Deerfield Beach for displaying a nativity scene, according to a video he posted to YouTube.

"People don't f*cking learn?" Stevens says in the video, which shows the Deerfield Beach nativity scene. "Told you I was gonna sue."

Stevens mocks the scene in the video, slamming the "baby f*cking Jesus" and saying it looks "like somebody stuck their finger up the little baby's ass." He also mocks the figure of the Virgin Mary and the accuracy of the nativity scene.

Stevens said his fight to have Festivus poles placed near nativity scenes is "the most ridiculous thing I could come up with."

"This is about the separation of church and state," Stevens said.

But Stevens isn't the only one protesting nativity scenes. In addition to Festivus poles, both the Florida and Wisconsin capitols also have tributes to the Flying Spaghetti Monster on display.
