A Tallahassee woman was arrested for ripping apart a Satanic Temple holiday display because she said she “could not take it anymore, because it was “not right.” It was about 11:30 a.m. when Susan Hemeryck, 54, began the gnashing of the teeth to rip it apart.

Her mugshot shows her wearing a “Catholic Warrior” t-shirt.

[su_center_ad]The holiday display is in the lobby of the Florida Capitol.

The Tallahassee Democrat reports:

Hemeryck then tried to remove the display. Officers stopped her and told her to put it back.

One of the officers explained to her that removing the display was in violation of the law. In response, Hemeryck said, she “could not take it anymore” and began to rip the display apart.

She was then escorted away and placed under arrest.

The controversial diorama of an angel falling into a pit of fire made headlines when it was set up Monday.

It was the only holiday display denied last year for being “grossly offensive.” This year, the group enlisted Washington, D.C.-based Americans United for Separation of Church and State, which threatened legal action if the display was again denied.

Americans United for Separation of Church and State released the following statement:

“This act of mindless vandalism should be condemned by all decent people and all those who support true freedom of religion. It’s important to remember that free speech in an open forum is for all groups, even those whose message some deem controversial or unpopular.”

Tengrain at Mock Paper Scissors notes, “For the record, it was next to a Festivus Pole made of PBR cans.

Hemeryck is facing a charge of criminal mischief and she was released on her own recognizance. It’s not clear as to whether the PBR cans were harmed during the Vandalism for Jesus incident. [su_csky_ad]

    that woman is only 54, must be all the hate and ugliness that has aged her and made her into a fat violent person.

      She was just trying to stamp out evil, inspired by the left who are always out in the streets destroying things.

      • Sam December 26th, 2014 at 9:49 am

        Actually she was tearing up the constitution by trying to deny the freedom of other to enjoy the same right she and you takes advantage of,,,,
        Freedom of religion and expression to a different group other than your own.

        I enjoy a traditional Christmas trees, caroling,Teachings of Jesus and I tolerate and except the rights for others to enjoy theirs versions of holidays celebrations even when their tradition are not the same as our traditional xmas traditions are.
        It’s called U S of America ,not Nazi Germany or Iran where only the states religious belief was tolerated,
        Get used to it,cause it’s not going away…

  8. Sam December 24th, 2014 at 6:46 pm

    there is a lose screw on every jar,
    I’m just glad she didn’t strap a bomb-vest on and hurt anyone.
    Maybe making a fool out of self in front of the nation will clam her down,
    But more likely,, FOX will high light her achievement as an act of courage to encourage other to overcome difference by destroying property thus ripping the constitution to threads.

    • StoneyCurtisll December 24th, 2014 at 6:54 pm

    You only have to listen to it once…

    There are Christians who are such anti-anything not Christian bigots who seem to get extra angry and resentful when they see non-Christians celebrating their respective holidays that just so happen to fall around the same time as Christian holidays. They get all thin-skinned and seem to be out to provoke.

    Of course I really shouldn’t complain. After all (and thankfully), this incident is very unlike the usual Christian outbursts, which generally end in bloodshed and mass destruction of property. I suppose I should thank you, crazy lady, for only destroying property, and for refraining from killing those who don’t believe as you do.

    • Wayout December 25th, 2014 at 9:35 am

      Wow, an in – your – face Catholic activist. Yes, you shouldn’t complain, you just love the leftist activists who act like this. But come on, please tell us about all the Catholic Christians who are out killing other people. There is presently only one major monotheistic faith whose adherents are presently doing that and it’s not the followers of Jesus.

        Tens of thousands of Muslims flee Christian militias in Central African Republic

        BANGUI, Central African Republic – Tens of thousands of Muslims are fleeing to neighboring countries by plane and truck as Christian militias stage brutal attacks, shattering the social fabric of this war-ravaged nation.

        • Wayout December 25th, 2014 at 12:15 pm

          Only because it was the Muslims who started attacking the Christian community first. While any and all atrocities should be condemned, what do you want the Christians do, stand idly by to get massacred and not fight back? All atrocities should be condemned, but Muslim’s killing others is part and parcel of what they are doing over there. Ever hear of Boko Haram?

          • Bunya December 25th, 2014 at 3:40 pm

            “what do you want the Christians do, stand idly by to get massacred and not fight back?”

            What are Christians doing in a predominantly Muslim country? If you ask me, they’re asking for it.

  11. rg9rts December 25th, 2014 at 3:58 am

    I guess freedom of religion has no meaning for her…wasn’t that long ago , catholics were pilloried just as she wants to do.

    You know? I bet Glenn Beck could Segway this story into a “founding fathers” shtick.
