Unlike the other young man caught 4 years ago urinating on a religious nativity scene, this young man engaged in an act of juvenile stupidity without causing harm to the statue. This level of stupidity is perhaps deserving of public humiliation, but not the criminal justice system.
"No religion is true, but some religion, any religion, is politically necessary. Law and morality are insufficient for the large majority of men. Obedience to the law and to the morals are insufficient for making men happy. […]Law and morality are therefore in need of being supplemented by divine rewards and punishments."
The thing is that there are always going to be jerks (especially teens who are exploring boundaries). I'm willing to bet that he's not the first kid to think about posing like that, and he won't be the last. Let them set fire to the flag and simulate a BJ with a statue...and pray that they will be given the gift of discernment and good taste. And celebrate the fact that we live in a country so free that people are free to be jerks.
