Statue of Liberty Gets Theological Remake

July 11th, 2006 by Andy in Religion and The State

Oh my Lord. This is astounding. The Founders are probably vomiting in their graves. Gotta love it how the self-described Christians take a pagan symbol and use it to promote Dominionism. But then the Christian religion has been co-opting other popular religious beliefs and iconography since its inception as an ‘official religion’ in the days of Constantine.

On Independence Day, Lady Liberty was born again.

Born again? More like molested and impressed into servitude.

As the congregation of the World Overcomers Outreach Ministries Church looked on and its pastor, Apostle Alton R. Williams, presided, a brown shroud much like a burqa was pulled away to reveal a giant statue of the Lady, but with the Ten Commandments under one arm and “Jehovah” inscribed on her crown…

…The Statue of Liberation Through Christ, as she is called, stands 72 feet tall from the base of her pedestal to the tip of her cross. She was the idea of Mr. Williams, a very successful pastor whose church, World Overcomers, qualifies as mega: it has a school, a bowling alley, a roller rink, a bookstore and, he said, 12,000 members.

This is almost beyond descriptive response. Some of the comments posted by people on The Huffington Post do a pretty good job, though.

In actuality it looks like something out of a minature golf course. The arm swings down and knocks the golf ball out of the way.

“Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.” Unless, of course, they don’t belong to OUR church in which case, let ‘em die.

    This is exactly the sort of schlock that leads me to believe so much of the Evangelical Movement is shallow and superficial.

    Welcome the amerikan taliban … when do they convert Gitmo and start shipping in the gays, the jews, the afro-americans, and others of a liberal bent ? Why, as soon as they build the crematoriums and general pace can trade his USMC uniform for a white sheet and pointy hood!

    It seems to me that Americas founders were all pagans judging by all the pagan symbols represented in military and government establishments. Could it be that the liberty statue is simply a representation of the pagan god AMARKA (see THE TWO BABYLONS by HISLOP page 305). She is called mother of gods and men and the mother of the world. “Am” is “mother” and “Arka” is “Earth” She is also known as “OMORKA”.
