    Activist group Indecline has claimed responsibility for hanging a banner that declares “God Bless Abortions” over the statue of Christ of the Ozarks in Eureka Springs, Arkansas, Northwest Arkansas News reported Friday.

    According to the report, which contains photos of the banner being hung:

    Guerilla art collective Indecline said in a press release that it is responsible for a “God Bless Abortions” banner hanging across the 67-foot statue of Jesus located atop Magnetic Mountain.

    The group calls the banner a piece of protest art in “direct response to the dramatic attempts being made in Arkansas and throughout the South, to ban abortion services to women in need.”

    On its website, Indecline sells a baby t-shirt with a photo of its “God Bless Abortions” banner over the Christ of the Ozarks statue for $30.

    The group stated its members smuggled the banner onto the mountain by having its team disguised as a construction crew.
    In December, Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge (R) released a statement following the announcement that pro-life organization Americans United for Life had ranked Arkansas as the most pro-life state in America.
    The attorney general said:
    It is an incredible day in the State of Arkansas to be named the most pro-life state in America by Americans United for Life. This has not been an easy road, but it is the most important fight we could take on and win. My office has successfully defended and won a number of pro-life cases, and as long as I am Attorney General, I will ensure we continue to fight for the lives and the rights of the unborn. Even with this remarkable announcement our work continues and I promise I will keep fighting wholeheartedly to defend our pro-life laws.
    Indecline has conducted other stunts, including vandalizing a pro-life billboard in Mississippi by switching out the message that read, “WORRIED? Jesus offers security,” to “WORRIED? Planned Parenthood offers abortions."
    In 2018, the activists, who also reject immigration laws, altered a billboard for a junk removal service that read, “We make junk disappear,” to read, instead, “We make kids disappear – I.C.E.”
    The group also placed life-size nude Donald Trump statues in several cities, including Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York City, and Seattle, in 2016.

    • This EVIL is so heartbreaking to see on a daily basis In the USA! My God, I believe, I adore, I hope and I love Thee! I beg pardon for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not hope and do not love Thee. Amen.

    It's fitting that they call themselves "Indecline."

    p.s. - just now checked the link to their site. Includes a cartoon figure with horns.

    I've had to break with a famous artist who, early decade last, took an interest in my writing. I was NOT politically savvy at the time. Though I'd been a fan of his for many years prior to our connecting, and knew he was Liberal (as I was too, in my younger years, although I was NEVER pro-abortion), I didn't KNOW his politics until 2016. :( But then I didn't "get" politics until 2016.

    Recently he became vocal in a manner which proves to me he's a radical Leftist.

    But as he's mostly quiet otherwise (busy with his work), and not giving anyone much notice anymore (including me), I've quietly distanced myself.

    It's very sad, as otherwise I think he and I have many (non-political) personality traits in common, and if we'd been closer in age and in-person friends, it would've been laughing, joking around, and enjoying each others' company. :rolleyes:

    I will always appreciate his interest in me. How flattering! But the gulf widens. :coffee:

    Disgusting but just another shot at us in the increasingly provocative in your face war they have mounted against God and His Truth

    But no worries, the bishops have this under control and will surely be accompanying Indecline on their walk and inviting them to dialogue in a nice manner
