    I really do hope this gets either thrown out or appealed. I believe it will be found this law is Unconstitutional.
    I'm not sure why you said "Yes, but...." as if said something you disagreed with? Not enough coffee today for me.

    I agree, it's a dumb law and I also hope the kid gets off. He's a dopey kid, but mine are pretty dopey too sometimes and I don't want them jailed for it. Some old laws are just nutty (like this one).

    I think the OP was way off the mark. Like Rocket said, unless the DA was having an affair with a Jesus statue, there is no connection.

    Yes, there is no connection between what the attorney did LEGALLY versus this case. I just think its pretty silly to charge this teen with this and unless I'm wrong it is within the power of the district attorney to NOT do this. I don't think there are tons of Texas DA pursuing Men taking more than three sips of beer at a time while standing up even though it's still on the books.

    One that I'd say has a better than even chance of being unconstitutional if it was ever challenged.

    Interestingly as far as I can tell adultery was a crime in Pa until recently - last few decades. It was a crime pretty much everywhere in the US until the middle of the last century.

    Somewhere in the 1970s I think it was taken off. Have to check on that one to be sure.

    You would hope, at least, that the State should not be determining what is and is not blasphemy. Unless it's the Islamic State.

    Remember that teen that pissed off a lot of lot of people because he posted a "bad image" with Jesus? Well it seems that the DA might of been a bit naughty too....
    Why does it really matter? the guy can't win the case.

    I find this kid disgusting but at the same time he does have First Amendment rights - something I highly doubt those opposed to my ideas would even think to acknowledging for me....

    It almost seems as if you're proud of this young deviant....

    Disorderly Conduct and or a lewd act in public would certainly stick....

    Both are BS charges anyways but what the kid did was no different than vandalism.

    The kid doesn't belong in jail - he should be scolded tho.

    It's not "blasphemy" unless it was on Church grounds - even then that wouldn't even apply - it would be trespassing and disorderly conduct and potentially a lewd act.

    Just to point out, the statue was not damaged in any way. Therefore, it is different than vandalism.. there is monetary loss in vandalism.

    I don't actually approve of this kind of character attack. We should evaluate what the kid did entirely on its own, without caring about this DA. Of course, there's no way that what the kid did should be against any law, but that should be the issue, not the DA's private life.

    That is definitely true. More often than the religious population at large would like to admit.
