    A South Florida man has erected a satanic cross on the front lawn of the Hallandale Beach City Hall.

    Chaz Stevens, a self-described atheist, put up the 6-foot black cross upside down. The words "In Chaz We Trust, All Others Pay Cash" adorn the cross.

    City officials later posted a sign next to the cross saying the display will be removed by Friday.

    "This display has been privately installed as an expression of religious freedom," the sign reads. "The views expressed so not represent the city's administration."

    Stevens has made news in the past for his efforts to have opening prayers dropped from government meetings and to have a Festivus pole erected at the Florida Capitol to protest a Nativity scene.
