    Since he didn't do any harm to the statue (as far as I can tell), he shouldn't have been charged with anything. "Desecration of a venerated object" shouldn't even be a crime in the US. I hope he fights it on first amendment grounds.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    That depends on how you want to define it.

    Frankly, that'd be up to the judge and jury more than anyone else at this point.

    I find it disgusting that this is a misdemeanor. It ought to be punished by imprisonment.
    Ok I find this disgusting, however I'm not sure desecration is the right crime. Vandalism would be appropriate if damage was involved. Lude behavior charges may fit the crime, or maybe trespassing. I guess in need to know if the desecration is based on the fact that he was physically standing on the property (Statue), or if it was due to the act he was portraying.

    If it is illegal desecration or blasphemy shouldn't everyone who reproduces or links to the picture be charged also? Including the OP.

    Only if his tallywhacker was hanging out. If not, then no.
    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    I suppose the people who put up the statue didn't think about how people are regressing back to being 3 hairs shy of a baboon...
    The chances a teenage boy will do exactly what this one did is pretty good. They had to know the statue was inviting this kind of behavior when they put it up. I mean, just look at it.

    You have no idea how painful it is for me to agree with you on anything, but on this one - you are correct. Great point.

    I'd say so. A simulated sex act in public would certainly fall into the category of "indecent".
