A woman is demanding the city of Lincoln, Nebraska remove a statue she deems as “demonic.” The status in question? Yeah, it’s not exactly Beelzebub.
A Nebraska woman is calling for the removal of a statue she says is demonic in nature. The subject of the statue in question – Spider-Man. The woman believes the six-foot tall statue of the Marvel hero’s hands shooting webs is both “anti-Christian” and “demonic.”
The sculpture contains traditional Spider-Man imagery: hands pointing forward with the middle and ring fingers pressed to the palms, shooting webs. The woman sent an email to the city’s mayor, saying in part that it was “a sculpture of two hands open, painted Red & Black, and formed into Devil Horns.”
Look, I know Christians have been the left’s favorite targets the last twenty years, and I am always defending them from the slings and arrows. That said, I cannot defend this woman, and I would go as far to say she is an outright kook.
Spider-Man is not demonic. The Green Goblin? Maybe…
