A group of self-described activist artists and “full-time rebels” draped a banner reading “God Bless Abortions” on a massive statue of Jesus overnight Friday.
Images on the artist collective Indecline’s Instagram page show a person hanging the banner between the outstretched hands of the seven-story Christ of the Ozarks monument in Eureka Springs, Arkansas.
The banner was elevated in “direct response to the dramatic attempts being made in Arkansas and throughout the South, to ban abortion services to women in need,” the group said.
Arkansas is among numerous states, including Oklahoma, South Carolina, and Texas, that have passed abortion restrictions into law in 2021. Arkansas’s law, which bans all abortions except to save the life of the mother, has been subjected to a court challenge led by the American Civil Liberties Union and Planned Parenthood.
“In Arkansas, there is only one 65-foot statue of Jesus. There is also only one abortion clinic. No professional sports teams. Just a bunch of angry men with no outlets, writing outrageous laws about vaginas,” Indecline wrote in the post. “It’s hard to see how ‘pro-life’ can be so myopic in its vision of what life is.”
“In their eyes, Mary Magdalene was a whore, not a favored disciple,” the group said, apparently referring to those who support abortion restrictions. “That’s just how they see a woman’s place in the world. And her body is a place too, private property to be legislated by a group of landlords.”
“We think Jesus would understand the concept of a difficult decision. He supposedly had to make a few of them and understood sacrifice very intimately,” the group added.
The group’s members were smuggled onto the mountain where the statue stands by a small team posing as a construction crew, it said.
Indecline was founded in 2001 and “focuses on social, ecological and economical [sic] injustices carried out by American and International governments, corporations and law enforcement agencies,” according to its website.
The group has taken similar action before, changing a Mississippi billboard that reads, “Worried? Jesus offers security,” to instead say, “Worried? Planned Parenthood offers abortions.”
This is the opposite of the Christian Zealot extremist, but just as dangerous!!
these jerks murder babies, shame on them
Exodus 21:21-23 Jeremiah 1:5, Psalm 139:16 God’s viewpoint
Mosaic law ; if 2 men were fighting and the unborn child died the one that struck the blow had to be put to death! Which is contrary to the abortion activists message.
Wonder if their parents should have aborted them.
You don’t realize how much danger your in when you are making comments and putting that banner up. You can’t mess with god like that. You need to pray and ask for forgiveness. Jesus and God loves babies and warn people in the Bible about doing harm to little ones.
Looks like HE missed a few . Dam shame.
I am not surprised at this, nothing surprises me in the days we are now living in. It’s clear these lost souls never read the bible , not only that abortion is a sin and murder ,but that desecration of our Lord is also a sin ! These kind of people have no idea what lies ahead for them. Most of them only believe in what they want , to live wicked lives , to tear down anyone or anything the don’t agree with , and to condemn those that try to show them the truth,. All anyone has to do is to look around themselves , see all the wicked evil and horrific things being done on a daily basis all over the world , it is so clear we are living in the last days , revelations ls being filled daily Satan has his hands on so many lost souls and he keeps them blinded from the truth by feeding them lies and luring them with wickedness , sex, drugs ,alcohol, crime ,and yes even murdering their very own children , parents ,family members . They cannot see the truth for they are blinded by Satan , we must stand strong , conf to our Lord & savior , resist their hateful tongues and pray for all that are lost to seek and find God ,asking for his forgiveness ,repenting , and turning away from their sinful was . Time is short according to the bible , everyone needs to be read in the blink of an eye ,for God is coming soon ! ,
