Brutalized Beaufort: Church Street in front of St. Helena’s Church

Two stumps are all that remain of 100-year-old palmetto trees that graced the entry to one of South Carolina’s most historic churches, St. Helena’s, which was founded in 1711, thanks to the cutting saws of Dominion Energy, the great Satan who has been intent on destroying the beauty of nature here. Palmettos all over town are falling to Dominion’s chain saws ever hour of every working day and being ground into sawdust.

“God gave man Dominion over all the Earth to Subdue and Deal with God’s Enemy, Satan. After God created man in His image and according to His likeness, He blessed man and told him to be fruitful, multiply, fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over everything that is on Earth.” (Gen. 1:26, 28).

Dominion Energy is indeed Satan. Our fair City government claims its “hands are tied”. The men and women of Beaufort are determined to subdue this Satan called Dominion Energy and to untie the City’s hands. Power is in the hands of the people, not of Dominion Energy nor of a City government that seems intent on letting Beautiful Beaufort be destroyed.
