It's amazing that the same pagan gods and demons always manage to be reinvented in new ways.
This is the new statue on the Appellate Division Courthouse of New York State, First Department:
You ladies and gents do realize this is demonic, right?
The statue, named "NOW", is a female figure emerging from a pink lotus. It has braids shaped as horns with a judicial lace apron. It is meant to pay homage to Ruth Bader Ginsberg and her fight for abortion.
So horns, tentacle arms, and a nude body emerging from a flower is how one pays honor to the gods of child sacrifice.
Here's the artist:
I'm not joking when I say this is demonic. The entire purpose of the statue is to kick off a "cultural reckoning" to "reflect 21st-century social mores."
Outside of the fact that these are actually social mores from the 21st century B.C., they are being completely honest about what they are trying to do.
Pastors who didn't think it was important to pay attention to politics or the "culture wars," now that the creators of a giant fertility goddess have placed their deity atop a New York City courthouse (where the 10 Commandments could never be displayed), are you paying attention now?
Just as a history primer, pagan gods like Baal and Moloch were regularly depicted with horns to show their power.
Other gods and magical creatures had tentacles, such as sea witches (depicted in modern times by villains such as Ursula in "The Little Mermaid").
And fertility gods and goddesses were often made with exaggerated genitals and other sexualized features.
