Religion in Andosciaville

The Problem: A religious group called the New Andoscians wants to donate a statue in Andosciaville's central park. This religious group has had a controversial history in Andosciaville. They are among the first founders of the city but have long since been a minority religion. A description of their religious beliefs is below. The statue that they would like to erect would commemorate their religious beliefs. It is a statue about 4x4x4 ft representing their cube with an inscribed sphere. At each corner is a statue of four Greek gods that represent cosmic balance in the Andoscian tradition, Athena and Bacchus taking diagonal corners and Ares and Aphrodite taking the other diagonal. The gods will wear traditional Greek togas. 

 

Adding to the problem is the fact that there is already a statue of the Ten Commandments in the park, donated by the First Baptist Church of Andosciaville ten years ago. The Ten Commandments statue is 4x8x2 ft, the same cubic feet as that proposed by the New Andoscians. Placing a statue in the city-owned park requires the approval of the City Council. Erecting a statue from such a controversial group could cause conflict. On the other hand, the city has already erected a religious monument. What about separation of church and state? Good luck.

Deformed Babies in Andosciaville

Cluster of Deformed Babies
A cluster of deformed babies has been discovered in Andosciaville's rural, largely immigrant community. Is this the result of pesticides or just a normal variation.
