Who would Jesus Shoot in the face? Can't you feel the love?
If it were a leprechaun shooting a unicorn, would people be making the same fuss? To me, it's the same diff. Two mythical figures.
More to the point, should the kids on the school bus be exposed to a message that says violence is a solution if you don't approve of someone's behaviour? Or that religious-based violence is justified?
I wonder if he's playing with the muscular Christ meme that's popular in some Christian circles, the red-blooded badass Christ the warrior who kicks Satan's butt.
My question is, how nuts would the right wing go if the display were reversed - Santa shooting Jesus with a shotgun? It's a goose/gander thing.
