A Devil that is Happy to See You

A small plaza at Clark Drive and Grandview Highway in Vancouver, Canada, used to be home to a Christopher Columbus statue. But that was years ago. News reports indicate that, this morning (September 9), East Van commuters noticed that another figure, known by such names as Satan, the Devil, and the Beast, had taken up residence there. [1] The large red statue, complete with horns and a tail, is anatomically “complete.” The City of Vancouver says it’s aware of the statue, but did not commission it. Nobody seems to know how or why it got there. The statue stood about eight to nine feet tall on a pedestal near the intersection of 4th Avenue and Clark Drive for several hours City crews arrived just after 3 p.m. to remove the statue, according to Global and CTV. [2] “The statue was not a piece of City commissioned artwork and consequently it has been removed,” says City of Vancouver spokesperson Sara Couper. [3] Its location gave Skytrain riders an ideal view of the statue’s details, including a jaunty pointed tail, tastefully manicured fingers throwing up devil horns and a fashionable black belt. If a statue of Lucifer that’s super happy to see you is the sort of thing that make you smile a little bit then you’ll smile even more when you’ll take a look of how news outlets reported on the incident. CBC News remarked on its “long, red ‘extension,’” CTV said it was “raising eyebrows — among other things” and Global News dryly noted it was “anatomically ‘complete.’” The site was previously home to a bronze Christopher Columbus commemorative statue, installed in 1986. The statue was moved to the Italian Garden in Hastings Park 10 years ago. The rogue art installation had commuters doing a devilish double-take for a few hours and as Jeremy Hunka reports, the now-removed statue had more than a few people “turning red.” [4] No one has claimed responsibility for the devilish prank.

Petition Demands Return of ‘Penis Satan’ Statue to Vancouver

Believe it or not, but il seems that hundreds of people are very upset that the City of Vancouver chose to remove a statue of Satan sporting an erection from outside a plaza in the city’s east end. [5] There is a petition on Change.org, titled “Bring Back Penis Satan,” is asking Vancouver mayor Gregor Robertson to return the work of art that mysteriously appeared on Tuesday morning. That petition now has 105 signatures.

By removing the statue of Penis Satan, you are taking from us our freedom of expression, restricting our sexuality, and stigmatizing our religious beliefs. Please return him immediately. [6]

A similar one is up to 272 [7] and yet another petition is calling for the city to give the statue to a local “Odditorium.”

With so few awesome things in Vancouver, I feel that this Satan statue needs to be preserved in the loving warmth of The Granger Bros’ “Odditorium”. Like the devil doesn’t have enough problems these days. [8]

The petition has almost reached its goal 10 hours after starting with supporters leaving messages such as “Stop censoring art. If enough people want it, let it be.” “By removing the statue of Penis Satan, you are taking from us our freedom of expression, restricting our sexuality, and stigmatizing our religious beliefs. Please return him immediately,”the petition’s description reads.

Mark Dice Commentary on the Subject

As you probably already have noticed, we’re big fans of Mark Dice, this man who have scientifically demonstrated that American have been irremediably dumbed down to a point that they would sign a petition for anything, form the removal of the 1,2,3,4th amendments, banning water, etc. Even if you’re not christian anybody can enjoy his takes on the subject which are hilarious most of the time. Some people don’t like the “name calling” that he used to do with celebrities and they copiously complain about that in the social medias and stuff…. but WE love it! So here are the comments he made about this whole satanic statue lunacy:
