    Is that a shoe?

    Public nudity and broadcasting regulations are not based on offense, they're based on society's right to regulate public property in the public's interests.

    The public's interest in not being offended by seeing naked people or hearing naughty words. There is no material harm from naked people or bad words.

    Sorry, but that is how they get away with it, not what their motivations are.

    Right. Where are the protests in the street and death threats? Freedom of speech be damned.

    The argument I have heard from a few is that anti-nudity laws are based on disease, but historically anyway, that is not accurate.

    the public has an interest in law and order.

    If you commit acts so against what the public considers acceptable, they will likely respond in a way that requires government intervention.

    Say I see you doing that to the statue, and I punch you out for it. Now we appear before a jury of our peers that decide they approve of my actions.

    now what? I just assaulted you, but our peers are fine with it. so do we make assault legal, or the act you did illegal?

    I find it disgusting that this is a misdemeanor. It ought to be punished by imprisonment.
    That's one sexy Jesus statue. I feel bad for the kid. I'm not sure I'd be able to stop myself from molesting fake jesus either. A man can only do so much ya know?

    Not making excuses, buuuut.....it might also be worth noting that he lives in a small town and went to Catholic school....and he's 14. Add them altogether and throw a kneeling statue of Jesus in the mix and you've got a recipe for.....a Facebook pic and fifteen minutes of fame.

    It was a college student in 2010 who "was arrested on a similar desecration charge. The intoxicated 22-year-old was busted after a cop spotted him urinating on a Nativity scene constructed in a city square".

    Not the 14 year old kid.
