Guys, I do think that the First Amendment is relevant to some degree with this statue. I do not believe it is that off topic. As previously stated,
you cannot censor this statue just because a certain religious group thinks it should be taken down or destroyed. Just as the Ten Commandments have
the right to be displayed somewhere. If the government decided to make some kind of law that prohibited works like these from being displayed, then
we would both be arguing for the same injustice. No matter what the piece was.
And, I have to agree with walking fox, you can't have religion in government and you can't have government in religion. It's just that simple.
The only problem is, is that religion is already deeply involved in politics as we see with every election. The Bible belt only votes for the right.
Maybe not all, but certainly a majority do. That is why we have the term "religious right".
Oh yeah, walking fox, this statue is only offensive to those who want something to complain about. They may be personally offended, but they just are
desperate for attention and thus use the religious angle to try and get their point across. People use religion as a sort of cop out in my
