Who ever is pressing these charges should feel ashamed of themselves. If I lived in that town and heard that kid actually got sent to jail for those two years. I would walk up to that statue and turn it into rubble with a heavy sledge hammer and set it on fire.

And piss on it, too. Yes

RE: Posing with Jesus Statue
I wonder if there would be a different outcome if a female had done the same thing to the statue. Or would the police hand the picture around the station for their fellow officers to get a good look.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Its shit like this that makes my blood boil...

I love the top comment on the article btw. A teen who is being a dumb teen gets 2 years in prison for taking a naughty picture with a statue, while a priest can go out and actually for a kid to do the deed without any consequences.

Bull fucking shit. Dodgy

RE: Posing with Jesus Statue
I saw this the other day! Ridiculous. My favorite comment on it is

"Fake sex with a statue - 2 years
Sexual assault on a human person - meh boys will be boys"

So rage. Much angry.

Atheism is the only way to truly be free from sin.

The bottom line is it should not matter why he did it. Merely being offended is not a crime. He did not destroy the statue. If it was private property the worst he should get is trespassing.

These fuckers who had him arrested are the same idiots who would rightfully condemn the death threats made at the Danish Cartoonist who drew a picture of the Prophet with a bomb in his Turban. It is nothing more than a blasphemy law.

If I were his parents I would file a suit with the ACLU and point out the People Vs Larry Flint.

Some have made the argument between merely being a dick, and protesting, and neither are illegal. Otherwise if any of us wanted to use law to silence others all of us could think of reasons to have others arrested.

The property was not damaged and that and that alone is what matters, not the fact that someone got offended.

To their credit, I don't think the Church is pressing charges. This is all on the popo and their lard-ass Republicunt handlers.

RE: Posing with Jesus Statue
I think we should now require warning labels on religious statues...just to be safe.

Personally, I think the kid was just up there trying to get a better view of something off in the distance.

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

I don't think dancefortwo was trying to say anything about women having it better than men.

My interpretation was that it was a comment on the hypocrisy of Christian men. Sort of like how they get up in arms over two men kissing on tv while at the same time they have gigabytes of lesbian porn on their computers.

RE: Posing with Jesus Statue
This kid did nothing illegal. He's my brother. Bedford county is full of fake ass Christians who troll on fb. The court system and police are all crooked and they Are all just dumbasses. He wasn't arrested and no charges are being filed. They are just blowing smoke up
Everyone's asses because they're butt hurt about it. But they aren't even true Christians. Christians are supposed to forgive
Those who have done them wrong and these people in this town just like to start dram and cause problems bc they're bawl babies and think that they are all right. Meanwhile kids are doing and selling heroin in this town. The town is full of snitches and crooked courts and police. I hate living here. He is an awesome kid he is smart and he stays out of trouble. Not
To mention he is a minor. I love the picture.
