Woman Arrested After Damaging Satanic Display at Florida Capitol

Luke 17:28-30 “Likewise as it was also in the days of Lot: They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built” but on the day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. Even so will it be in the day when the Son of Man is revealed.

A woman was arrested Tuesday after she attempted to tear down the Satanic Temple’s display in the lobby of the Florida Capitol.

Susan Hemeryck, 54, told police officers she was sorry but that it was “not right” to allow the anti-Christian display.

Hemeryck tried to remove the display as an officer stopped her and said she had to put it back.  She responded by trying to tear down the display until the officers subdued and arrested her.

“It’s just wrong, when you remove baby Jesus two days before Christmas and put Satan in his place — that just can’t happen. I couldn’t allow it to happen,” Hemeryck told the Associated Press “I was there at the right time and the right moment and I needed to take a stand against Satan.”

Hemeryck faces a charge of criminal mischief.  She has no criminal record.

“I just yanked that little devil off the fishing line,” she told the AP when asked if she had any regrets. “I should have just done a better job and finished it off for good.”
