Yesterday I posted a link to a story about a tavern that got into trouble with the law…
That story has continued on and I came across an interesting little quote:
“We were mortified when the sign went up because we weren’t sure, and we Googled what succubus means – it’s really right across the street from a church right, next store to a catholic book store. It’s terrible,” said Susan Sharp, a Covington neighbor.
When the sign for Succubus Tavern went up last year, neighbor Sharp found the definition for succubus: A female demon who has sex with sleeping men.
The original story that is taken from is here.
Now I have just one little question for the people that were unsure what a Succubus was… Assuming that you are church goers and you know your Bible… Wouldn’t you be familiar with the story of Lilith and Adam and what happened to her?
Judging from the image accompanying the article I quoted from, the sign isn’t exactly “obvious” in its appearance. But that’s neither here or there really. What gets me is the use of Succubus in this case seems rather slip shod really. I mean, alright it’s an adult bar and so forth, but really, you couldn’t figure out a better name?
Oh and one other thing… Let’s not continue to rant over the word Succubus in all of this shall we? For all of the coverage over this event, there is a heck of a lot of emphasis given to the use of the word really…
Now I do want to say that I am in no way trying to give support to the people that may have done wrong in all of this. That is for the courts to decide and they will one way or the other. That is after all what they are here for…
