Tradition, Family and Property (TFP) has launched a petition urging the National Park Service in Washington DC to deny a final permit for a 45-foot steel statue of a nude woman on the National Mall.
As we reported earlier this week, the statue, dubbed R-Evolution, is the creation of artist Marco Cochrane and originally stood at the Burning Man festival outside Reno, Nevada. It features a nude short-haired woman standing in a yoga asana known as the mountain pose. Cochrane is working with an activist group known as Catharsis on the Mall to “re-purpose” the statue for use as a statement about violence against women and plans to erect it on the National Mall facing the White House.
As TFP reports, it has received tentative approval to be erected on the Mall and if a final permit is granted, it will be put up sometime around November 11. It will stand in a place where 25 million children, families and tourists will be exposed to a blatant display of female nudity from November until March of 2018.
“Parents don’t want their kids to see this stuff. Nor do tourists expect to see nudity on the Mall. That’s why so many decent people are standing up in peaceful protest,” said C. Preston Noell III, spokesman for TFP.
“16,000 people have signed the petition in just a few hours, urging Park Service authorities to reject this indecent display on federal property. Every single voice against public nudity counts. This needs to be stopped and common decency restored.
“Our petition is a protest against public nudity,” Noell continued. “Who wants a nude female statue that sexually objectifies women on the National Mall? If we want our children to grow up in a clean and decent social atmosphere, this nudity should be kept away. Most Americans don’t want this 45-foot national embarrassment.”
He added: “To dismiss this giant naked woman statue in Washington, D.C. as something of little importance is to ignore how nudism gradually worms its way into society. And once nudism becomes socially acceptable, it’s over with civilization.”
Pending the National Park Service’s decision to issue a permit, the TFP will lead God-loving Americans in a Rosary of Reparation which will take place at the National Mall on Saturday, November 4, at 11:30 a.m. Regardless of whether you can join them at the Mall, the faithful can participate from home at that time to prevent this display from being erected.
