Quote:A church nativity scene featuring a bleeding Trayvon Martin is stirring up controversy in southern California.

The outdoor display at the Claremont United Methodist Church spotlights a black-hooded dummy—in place of where baby Jesus would typically be – slumped over and with blood spilling from his chest into a red pool that reads “A Child is Born, a Son is Given.”

The artist and congregant John Zachary told msnbc that he wanted to spark a conversation about gun violence. So, he chose to center his controversial piece on Martin, the slain Florida teen who was shot and killed by volunteer neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman in February 2012 (Zimmerman was acquitted of second-degree murder and manslaughter). Zachary first presented his idea to a church committee, which gave the thumbs up to the project.

“My feeling about it is that we have so many guns in our country and there are so many killings and it’s unique to our children. And I think that people still need to talk about it in a reasonable manner until there’s something done about it,” Zachary said, insisting he was not trying to replace Jesus with Martin.

It's his right to express his "artistic creativity"........as much as it is also my right to strongly dislike his art.

This guy has a future in politics. If you are not trying to replace Jesus with Martin you should try not replacing Jesus with Martin.
Ammunition, it's the new lead bullion. Buy it cheap and stack it deep.

What if he replaced Trayvon Martin with Ricky Martin? Ricky Martin is gay and if you complain about that then you're just a gay basher!!!









Sorry, I couldn't resist. Tongue

Yep, that was my first thought as well. Some days, this stuff is so messed up all you can do is just shake your head. So much fail.
I don't suffer from insanity.
I enjoy every minute of it.

Since when was "artistic creativity" a fundamental right protected under the Constitution?

Ah yes, it was the other forum, someone said that they feel bad for people like this, to which I replied;

Well look, he has his fifteen minutes.

Sad.

Here you go;

The bolded are the important parts here.
