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

    Accoring to Pensylvania state law: "A person commits indecent exposure if that person exposes his or her genitals in any public place or
    in any place where there are present other persons under
    circumstances in which he or she knows or should know that this
    conduct is likely to offend, affront or alarm." Indecent exposure - 18 Pa. Cons. Stat. 3127 - Pennsylvania Attorney Resources - Pennsylvania Laws

    Jesus ****ing Christ, really? You God-damned religious nuts need to give it a rest.
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    Well I guess "terrorists" come in all religions. Hahah

    But yeah, seems like a pretty religious law to me. No property damage, no real crime, but because it was a jesus statue, now government force is involved. What if it were a statue of Smokey the Bear? Would you still get in trouble with the government?

    I'm not sure why you're babbling about sharia, but yes, there is a little bit of sanity left in America.
    Be as concerned with "public blasphemy" as you want, but your god has nothing to do with the rules of man. No property damage, no vandalism, no crime. Just say NO to theocracy.

    To the theocrats, yes. Sit here yelling about the Muslims, but it seems like we need to worry about the Christians as well. Trying to make their religious laws law of State. Insane.

    I guess not.

    Frankly, that might have been why they charged him with "desecration" in the first place. They wanted to charge him with something, but indecency didn't stick.

    Do they have laws against disorderly conduct, or disturbing the peace?

    What's disgusting are people trying to use government force to enforce their religious laws against the rest of us. Right up there with ISIS.

    Please spare us the pitiful attempt at moral equivalency.
