Christian Hero Beheads Satanic Statue
A brave Christian former military officer has torn down and beheaded the Satanist statue that was erected in the Iowa State Capitol. The striking piece of christian direct action has enthused good people everywhere.
Michael Cassidy, a former Navy pilot, “pushed over and decapitated the [Satanic] statue before he discarded the head in a trash can.”
The Satanic Temple of Iowa previously received permission to set up an exhibit that included a statue of the demonic idol Baphomet. According to The Sentinel, the satanic display was installed in proximity to the Nativity scene on the first floor of the Capitol.
Cassidy told The Sentinel he destroyed the shrine to “awaken Christians to the anti-Christian acts promoted by our government.”
“The world may tell Christians to submissively accept the legitimization of Satan, but none of the founders would have considered government sanction of Satanic altars inside Capitol buildings as protected by the First Amendment,” he continued. “Anti-Christian values have steadily been mainstreamed more and more in recent decades, and Christians have largely acted like the proverbial frog in the boiling pot of water.”
“I saw this blasphemous statue and was outraged. My conscience is held captive to the word of God, not to bureaucratic decree. And so I acted.”
Cassidy furthermore cited 1 John 3:8 as motivation to destroy the statue: “The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the works of the devil.”
“Scripture exhorts us to think and act like Jesus Christ,” he added.
The former Navy officer turned himself into the police shortly after destroying the idol. The Satanic Temple of Iowa is reportedly suing Cassidy for fourth-degree criminal mischief.
