Missing the point (of the obelisk)

WorldNetDaily reveals that the new visitors’ center at the Capitol in D.C. is presenting a slanted view of U.S. history:

American taxpayers have spent more than $600 million on a new visitors’ center at the Capitol in Washington, D.C., and it will have acres of marble floors and walls, photographs of Earth Day, information about an AIDS rally and details about the nation’s industrial sector. What it will not include is America’s Christian heritage, raising objections from members of Congress and drawing an inquiry from Chuck Norris about whether he can help fix it.

Ironically, the two structures pictured in the article, both familiar and historic symbols of the United States, are monuments to pagan gods.

The United States Capitol, officially called the Temple of Liberty, was inspired by and modeled after the Pantheon in Rome. It’s topped by a statue of Persephone, the goddess of the underworld, and features a mural in the eye of the rotunda that depicts the transformation of George Washington into a god!

The WND article also features a picture of the Washington Monument, America’s biggest and most famous phallic symbol.

No, really. Obelisks are Egyptian. They represent the penis of Osiris.

There are a multitude of examples: Mars stands at the entrance to the Capitol. The Statue of Liberty is Isis. The Medals of Honor issued by our armed forces all feature Minerva (on a pentagram, no less!).

So Christians, think for a minute before you start yelping about the Christian heritage of the United States. The evidence is all around us that this is not now, and never was, a Christian nation.
