154. Well, isn't that a fine kettle of fish
What an unhappy situation.

I remember your original post, and the only thing I recall that might have been iffy is your reference to subliminal but certainly non-violent images inserted into the board.

What can I say except that I'm so sorry you lost the work, and that must have been so unpleasant to deal with - and embarrassing as well.
Maybe that's what they wanted to do - was make you miserable. I hope that you don't lose other work over it.

As for the religious and civil liberty issues, I agree with others who've advised you to contact the ACLU.

"Evil flourishes when good men do nothing."

I used to feel embarrassed, like I needed to apologize for those who use the name Christian as a weapon of mass destruction. Much prayer and meditation later, I realize that they just don't get it. Jesus was a powerful man because he was a non-violent, non-judgemental man - divinity is not the point. The message was the most powerful ever to hit the planet - then and now. U2 calls grace a force that changed the world.

That's what I wish you now - grace to get through this current unpleasantness. This, too, shall pass.
