‘Catholic Warrior’ Vandalizes Satanic Holiday Display in FL

‘Catholic Warrior’ Vandalizes Satanic Holiday Display in FL December 26, 2014

The holiday display put up by the Satanic Temple at the state capitol in Tallahassee, Florida has already been vandalized, as happens with almost any display that isn’t Christian, by a self-declared “Catholic warrior” who said she just couldn’t stop herself from doing it.

Susan Hemeryck, 54, tried to remove the display Tuesday, and when the Capitol Police told her she couldn’t, she began ripping it apart. She was arrested and charged with criminal mischief. The display had been erected as a satire by an atheist group to counter a Nativity scene, which was taken down the day the Satanic Temple installed theirs.

“It’s just wrong, when you remove baby Jesus two days before Christmas and put Satan in his place — that just can’t happen. I couldn’t allow it to happen,” said Hemeryck, who said she was wearing a shirt that said “Catholic Warrior” when she arrived at the Capitol. “I was there at the right time and the right moment, and I needed to take a stand against Satan.”

If a non-Christian destroyed a Christian display of this sort, can you imagine the screams of outrage from the religious right? This would be proof that demon-possessed people are trying to destroy Christianity. And they’re probably gay too. Yet atheist billboards, signs on buses and such displays are almost always vandalized almost immediately upon being put up. Why? Because they’re marking their territory. They’re saying, “This is a Christian country and you’re not welcome here.”
