11. That's quite large.
Ask them if they intend to crucify someone.

2. Why don't you put up a massive something?
Let's think.

Man, that would be annoying!

3. Do you suspect that they intend to nail someone up there?
Or does crucifix imply that Jeebus is already part of the package?

7. Wow.
New Englanders putting their faith on display? Really, that's something I don't expect. Usually a pretty reticent group about that sort of thing.

Is it an Easter thing, or a Schiavo thing, do you think?

9. I think it has to do with Mel Gibson
All over the Saturday papers (Washington Post, Potomac News) today were pictures of fake bloody Christs on crucixes. I think it has to do with the "Passion of the Christ".

10. Build a 13 foot Pentacle
Edited on Sat Mar-26-05 02:24 PM by joefree1
Make it fire proof though.

Actually as a Pagan I revere the Sky and Earth. So far no religions have erected a symbol higher then the Sun or pulled the earth out from under my feet.

17. I'd put up a massive inverted pentagram
with blinking lights, and maybe some barbed wire strung around it.

But hey, I live in an apt. So I am fairly lucky- won't have to deal with that kind of stuff for awhile.

23. Did they put it up yesterday?
It was Good Friday, the day Christians reflect on the crucifixion. Perhaps it's their concept of a seasonal lawn decoration. Tomorrow is Easter. Perhaps they'll take it down then, on the day of celebrating the resurrection. :shrug:

24. There is someone on my very busy street who has a crucifix
and two signs with messages about God on her front lawn all year round.
There's a big Jesus picture leaning against the garage in the back yard, which is artistically a disaster.

She's a nice lady.

You get used to it after a while.
