Artistic Creativity is a form of free expression and speech. This is in horrible taste, and SHOULD offend the church that put it up but since it doesn't that speaks more to the type of establishment they are.

But even still, whether or not this is offensive is not the issue--this is not obscene and has the right to exist no matter how stupid it is and those who claim to be Christians yet replace Christ with Trayvon will someday have to answer to the one they replaced.

Though I doubt they even believe in that, and the fact that they did what they did casts some SERIOUS doubt on any claim they do, IMHO.

He could have borrowed my Arizona Watermelon Fruit Juice cocktail that I keep on my reloading table. Its a reminder to not allowing yourself to be a victim of street violence. Wink

While I support the expression, I find it in poor taste.

As a Christian I am offended that a church would allow the portrayal of the newborn Savior as a wanna-be thug.

Christmas is about the birth of Jesus, not the death of some criminal. They should have waited for Easter. Maybe they could change around the Stations of the Cross. Dodgy

I view this in the same vein as the crucifix in a jar of urine fiasco years ago.

Lookin' for 15 minutes in the public eye, then gone.

Good art doesn't need to shock the senses to be appreciated. If you're an artist and you need to do something gimmicky to get noticed you should probably consider a different career.

Yeah, the display is total BS in my view. It's not art; it's just meant to get a rise out of people.

When I look at something that purports to be Art my first test is:

Does it demonstrate a high level of skill in the chosen medium?

The answer for this piece of crap is a resounding, "no". I wouldn't even call it good Arts and Crafts.

Another thing, suppose you were to remove the Martin effigy from the religious Christmas trappings and put it in a Halloween display. The same dumbasses who commissioned this steaming pile of horse excrement would be raving about how racist and insensitive it was.
Ammunition, it's the new lead bullion. Buy it cheap and stack it deep.
