Whatever you think personally of this kid’s antic, the charge and the unfitting punishment he faces is antithetical to the Establishment Clause and will set a highly theocratic precedent. We cannot accept or tolerate religious veneration written into law.
So what to do? Here’s one suggestion:
As both an act of protest and a show of solidarity, join in on the antic!
We are encouraging you to take your own irreverent and simulated sex photos with religious statues and other “venerated objects” and effigies, and post them to social media using the hashtag #OccupyEffigies.
(or in the meantime, post along with the hashtag the best pictures like this you can find on the web)
