A small team from Indecline, an activist art collective, reportedly posed as construction crew members and smuggled the banner with its message written in blood-red onto Magnetic Mountain, where the 67-foot-tall monument of Jesus Christ is located, according to KNWA.
The Christ Of The Ozarks Statue is one of the only two giant monuments of Jesus Christ in the Continental U.S., according to the Encyclopedia of Arkansas.
‘In Arkansas, there is only one 65-foot statue of Jesus. There is also only one abortion clinic. No professional sports teams. Just a bunch of angry men with no outlets, writing outrageous laws about vaginas. That, and the second highest rate (by state) of infant mortality. It’s hard to see how “pro-life” can be so myopic in its vision of what life is.’
‘We think Jesus would understand the concept of a difficult decision. He supposedly had to make a few of them and understood sacrifice very intimately,’ they continued. ‘The Christ of the Ozarks is visible from miles away, so we just treated it like a billboard. We aren’t necessarily “pro-choice” or “anti-life,” those terms are double-speak. We just think abortion is a goddamn miracle worth celebrating. It saves lives, but those lives are usually female.’
‘When people have strong beliefs about decisions that don’t affect them, those beliefs are worth questioning. We are just here to ask those questions. Perhaps they get us farther than beliefs. And maybe Jesus never intended to be a statue, nor a billboard. But then again, he’s not supposed to be pro-choice, so we guess he’ll just have to live with it,’ they concluded.
