Christmas shopping

Lovely lawn ornament available from the American Family Association. Nothing says "Welcome home for the Holidays" like a burning cross.




  • As a lapsed/former Catholic, I find strong displays of the cross during the Christmas season to be offensive. It's the wrong icon for celebrating the BIRTH of Christ --or-- even the more secular concepts of embracing our common humanity with good will, sharing meals, gifts, good things to eat and booze-fueled a-wassailing. A bunch of assholes put Christ on the cross, and who wants to be reminded of that on Christmas day? Or, like Ricky Bobby suggests, my favorite Jesus is the Baby Jesus.

    A cross like the one pictured is more appropriate for Easter. But then I guess you'll really look like a moron, having the only light display on your block in March or April.

    Can we tell these people to stop now?
