If Focus on the Family doesn't come to this guy's defense, I'll be sorely disappointed.
Screw that, I'll hire him a lawyer myself. This is the best shit I've ever seen.
I like the legal eagle neighbors too. As it says in the constitution, our creator endowed us with a right to life, liberty, and being offended by shit we don't like.
My favorite was the woman who basically said, "Freedom of speech... b-b-b-but children!"
You know someone only has a vague understanding of a legal doctrine if they just stick it in places where it doesn't work grammatically. (Shotgun Jesus is "protected speech," honey. You're on camera.)
I'm not saying I wouldn't be pissed off if I had kids at that bus stop. But for a parent, that is a golden opportunity to teach your child the simple joy of egging people's shit. If they manage to get this taken down legally they'll just be eroding everybody's rights. Buy some fence cutters and STFU.
How about "Golden opportunity to teach your child that there are some people in the world that obsess over stupid things like how a society chooses to celebrate a holiday" or "Golden opportunity to teach your child which houses to never enter without a trusted adult with them"?
Ok, settle down guys. My point was that the legal system shouldn't be used to basically bitch at people. I find the display to be hilarious, but I'm not going to dismiss the possibility that if I had young kids who saw it every day, I might be angry. But even in that cause I wouldn't be writing letters to my senator or anything.
forgot this... :P
also, "even in that case"
I want to see Jesus v. Santa in theaters, but only if it is the last third of a legitimate sci-fi trilogy, following Fists 'o Jesucristo and Red Christmas.
"One's on Santa's naughty list. One's on Jesus' revenge list."

If there's one thing Jesus loves, it's killing guys.
Keep repressing that creativity, buddy. As far as I'm concerned, your shit got one-upped by the Santa Hell's Angles.
I hate parents today. What a nice chance to teach your kids about freedom of expression.
ProTip: Parenting is not about protecting kids. It's about teaching them to be functioning adults.
He needs to have it re-done professionally, it looks like shit.
Jesus holding a shotgun? How is this NOT the most awesome thing you've ever seen?
The function of art is to comment on culture... the message in this case may be controversial and (probably) willfully inflammatory, but I'm glad he has this on display. I think the world would be a better place if more people were like him.
Thank god it falls within the function of art!
The world would be a better place if more people used religion as a call to arms?
That they've turned the Messiah of peace into THE ULTIMATE WARRIOR AGAINST THE INFIDEL within my lifetime, and people applaud, makes me wonder when I get my fucking power armor and go off to fight the Eldar.*
*Nerdiest. Post. I have ever. Made. Ever.
Not true! We have a whole website off of poetv dedicated to far nerdier comments you have made, with strong forums, submissions process, voting on your comments and a rating system. You'll never find it!
p.s. Christmas is pre-pagan, it comes from Egyptian worship of Osiris. This factoid is unrelated to anything else.
WHOOOA RADICAL THOUGHT
What pisses me off is the total lack of accuracy. Everyone knows Jesus drives a Mustang.
Fuck that, Santa would win.

BUT WHAT ABOUT THE CHILDREN!?!
Oh it's THIS story again. Happens every Christmas and it's to the point that nobody even blinks when some jackass puts up a crucified Santa.
Also, wouldn't the image of Jesus shooting Santa to death be a better symbol for the ridiculous measures taken by 'traditionalists' to disrupt the commercialization of Christmas?
I mean, depicting Santa as Jesus says "This isn't right, just like it's not right that Santa has taken Jesus' place in Christmas" but the figure of Jesus shooting Santa is much more "See how traditional Christians forcefully take all the fun out of the holidays for no reason?"
In either case they both boil down to "I'm a big dick who wants to be on the news, defend my actions with the constitution, and then give a cock-smile to everyone who wants it taken down."
