The Statue of Liberty or Libertas as it is known in some parts of the world was erected to keep worshiping false gods.
The honoring of the Goddess of Freedom began more than two thousand years ago among the ancient Romans. They called Her, Libertas, the Latin word for Freedom. Libertas signified freedom of action, freedom from restraint, independence, rights, and related forms of personal and social liberty.
History: Libertas, in Roman religion, female personification of liberty and personal freedom. Libertas was given a temple on the Aventine Hill about 238 BC. (This is not the same as the temple of JupiterLibertas restored by the emperor Augustus.) After the statesman and orator Cicero’s exile (58 BC), his political opponent the tribune Publius Clodius Pulcher built a small shrine to Libertas on the site of Cicero’s house on the Palatine Hill; by consecrating the property to a goddess, Clodius was rendering it uninhabitable. When Cicero returned to Rome two years later, he argued before the Senate that the consecration was invalid. He eventually regained possession of the property and was permitted to dismantle the shrine. The Senate voted to build a temple to Libertas in honour of Julius Caesar in 46 BC, but it was not built. A statue of Libertas was set up in the Forum. Libertas is usually portrayed as a matron with a laurel wreath or a pileus (a conical felt cap given to freed slaves, hence the symbol of liberty).
Exodus 20:1-6 And Elohiym spoke all these words saying, I am Yahuah Elohayka, which have brought you out of the land of Mitsrayim (Egypt), out of the house of bondage.
You shall have no other elohiym(gods) before me. You shall not make unto you any graven image or any likeness of anything that is in the heavens above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: You shall not bow down yourself to them, nor serve them: For I YAHUAH ELOHAYKA am a jealous EL, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth genertations of them that hate me; And Showing them mercy unto thousands of them that love me and guard my commandments.
