Loucifer: Just now, for the first time in my life, I said the words: "This neighborhood could use an HOA."

You don't like freedom?

So the fundie neighbors are calling this "an abomination", but having a half-naked guy crucified on a church steeple every other block is just dandy, right?

FabulousFreep: Isn't it still against the law to display the noose in some states ?

Of course not.  I doubt it was ever illegal.  That would be a pretty egregious violation of the first amendment.  People can display the battle flag of the Confederacy, upside-down crosses, and all manner of offensive stuff.

USP .45: A common sense thing to do here would be to search the home for weapons.

Why? What reason would they have/give to search their home?

Good for them. People should express themselves while our government still allows it, rat bastards that they are.

Some people enjoy the macabre. It's not my preference, but the aesthetic has been around for a long, long time.

FTFA: "Two neighbors told News 4 they want the dolls taken down, and they said all their fellow neighbors feel the same way. One neighbor called it an "abomination."

That sounds like a challenge to me.

Of course, I don't want to give the false impression that in America you burn witches. As some of my ancestors in Salem Village, MA, learned the hard way, you hang them. The correct answer is hanging, English style. In Scotland and bits of Continental Europe, they did burn them at the stake though, but that was the Roman Catholic influence (auto-da-fés of Protestants, Jews, homosexuals and other people who cause earthquakes simply by existing--see the Reverends Pat Robertson and Jerry Farwell for details on how this works).

The Protties wouldn't wast the fuel. They could always reuse the rope, or sell it for souvenirs. (Quite a profitable side-line for the executioner, actually.)

I could go on all night, but I am adding Dick Van Dyke to my family tree and I'm only back to the 1800s. I've got two more centuries of ancestors to go before I reach John Alden and Priscilla Mullins.
