So Missouri State Representative Mike Moon doesn’t want the beautiful statue of Ceres returned to the Capitol building, has called her a false God and gone so far as to declare that his state needs no Gods but Jesus.
I’ve heard this story before.
Let’s check back in on the Show-Me State in six months or so, shall we? Anyone want to lay money down on them being in the midst of a record-level drought – maybe with a side of famine and plague for good measure?
I mean, indifference towards the Gods is one thing. But when you are actively hostile towards them and an elected representative of the people … woah, boy.
As Euripides once wrote, “Often an entire polity has suffered because of the wicked deeds of a single man.”
