What's a West Hollywood Halloween season without some political displays? Couple ChadMichael Morrisette and Mito Aviles, who made national headlines when their 2008 display included an effigy of Sarah Palin, are at it again and this year it's about the Catholic church.

The scene is made up of "soulless parishioners" surrounding the Pope, who is leading the church on a crusade against equality. In a sense, this is an extension of their "forces of evil" series. Last year the decor was also about those who oppose equality and included Linda the Good Witch burning a Mormon missionary at the stake, a naked Maggie Gallagher on the roof -- she's the President of the Institute for Marriage and Public Policy -- and a cut-to-pieces former Miss California winner Carrie Prejean.
