    Jesus-Shooting-Santa Display Causes Neighborhood Strife

    The controversial Christmas display shows Jesus pointing a double-barrel shotgun at Santa's dead body as Rudolph lays sprawled across the hood of a pickup truck nearby, WNCT reported.
    Neighbors in Nipomo, Calif., called for the display to be removed, but its maker Ron Lake called it a work of art in which Santa represents the commercialization of Christmas, the station reported.

    hahahahahahah...I gotta hand it to the guy. He's turned their own arguments about why it's OK to display disgusting art that offends Christians right around on'em. It's ART man. I love this guy, is he single???

    snipped: " 'It's an expression of my repressed creativity,' Lake told WNCT." OMG this guy made my day. I'm not a Christian really I just get so tired of the hypocrisy.

    There's a video of it at this link.

    The way I look at it is it's less offensive than a Santa-Shooting-Jesus display, and it does make a point -- not one that I agree with, being a huge Santa fan, but a point nonetheless. I can see how it might upset children being taken out to see Christmas lights, though.

    Hah... I am totally on this guy's side...

    A local society group always holds a yard decoration contest in our area and they always snub the festive yards on the less-than-influential streets where the houses aren't McMansions. I was so undone by it one time that I wrote a satirical blog entry about how I would decorate my yard to get back at the snobs, with things like a pimp Santa with 3 blowup dolls as his ho,ho,hos...

    Quoted from the video clip:
    "is it art and creative expression, or is it just a way to cause an uproar in the community?"
