Another Christian acting illegally to please his god

This man was told by the authorizes to leave the statue alone.   I did not bother anyone else.  It was accepted as normal art as it should be.  Yet he couldn’t accept that because in his mind what his god wanted comes before anyone else, and any laws.   He is making his god supreme over everyone else.  He is like the American Taliban Christian thugs.  Hugs

Man Uses Chainsaw to Cut Phallus off Māori Carving in Order to Please God

Man Uses Chainsaw to Cut Phallus off Māori Carving in Order to Please God

Self-described devoted Christian Milton Wainwright says he was doing God’s work when he used a chainsaw to lop off the phallus of a Māori carving on New Zealand’s Manawatū Gorge Reserve walking track.

Believe in the concept of mana or don’t, but Wainwright’s act was a deliberate imposition of his own cultural and religious values without consent onto an indigenous people, an echo of Christianity’s history as a colonizing force around the globe.

His complaints were ignored completely by everyone except Tararua mayor Tracey Collis, who explicitly told him to leave the statue alone. Wainwright has since been fined and sentenced by a New Zealand court. But he continues to maintain that he had God’s approval for the statue’s defacement, insisting

… I don’t see how it can be wrong to make an indecent thing so decent. He who doesn’t stand for something will fall for anything. I stood for decency in public places.

  1. I’m not big on seeing wangs in public myself, but for crying out loud, it was a piece of artwork representing indigenous traditional art and culture! You can’t freaking do that! Ugh, I bet those kids going around the artwork in the park were far less squeamish and immature than this nutjob, probably don’t see it as a big deal, either.

    This guy clearly was given the shaft during cultural sensitivity training or sex ed. Wonder what he would’ve done to a statue showing (traditionally) exaggerated breasts and other “lady parts.” Fertility symbols for thousands of years. Get over it.

    • Hello TheChattyIntrovert. I wonder why he thinks a tiny penis on a statue is OK but an exaggerated one clearly not real freaked him out? Could he have penis envy? Microdick? What bothers me is that he felt he had the right to act on his disapproval. That he had the right to just change the statue. He felt he need not take into account anyone else’s feelings or ideas. That bothers me because it is a short step from that to violence against others in the name of god. Hugs
