2. I'm feeling ambivelent here....
On the one hand we have free speech issues and the fact that I find it funny as hell ("Hey Santa, Cross your legs-I only have three nails!").
But on the other hand we have a symbol of the innocence of children's beliefs and a treasured (by many) national holiday being mocked in public.Were I the father of young children driving around to see the Christmas decorations to come upon that and were my children be in distress, I believe that I might violate the Spirit of the Season on his ass....

5. I laughed then I cried for the children
than I used my critical thinking what five year old would know that was a Crucifixion? They would just think it was a flying Santa.
