"A controversial Christmas decoration hanging on a garage in Corpus Christi, Texas, depicting a bloody Santa Claus on a cross with a crown of thorns is putting the holiday spirit of some area residents to the test.

"It's December, it's Christmastime. It is just a Christmas ornament," said homeowner Aaron Olivares. "It needed some lettering up there so I put the 'slayer' up there. It's nothing Satanic it is just decorations for Christmas.” Slayer is now the Santa’s name."

Poor Santa Slayer.  :(

This always seems to be the time of year where people do all they can for attention.

'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde

That gross, but is it any worse than bronze statues of jesus all skinny and in agony? I mean, one is seen as worship tool and the other an attention seeking statement.

The internet is a series of tubes, and those tubes are full of cats.

Priceless example of cultural misunderstandings.  It reminds me (oddly) of a situation where war nearly broke out between Mexico and the US in the late 1800's (I think) when a drunken sailor cheered for the bull at a bullfight!  
When we were in China for the adoption in 2000, it was near Christmas and they had Santa artwork and mannequins  about the stores but they all had faces that looked to be second degree burned :w00t:

The santa "ornament" would not bother me, having Aaron Olivares  as a neighbour  would though.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

That'll teach that fat nutter to leave reindeer crap all over my roof every year!

I can teach you with a quip, if I've a mind; I can trick you into learning with a laugh; Oh, winnow all my folly and you'll find, A grain or two of truth among the chaff!

I read an account a few years back that in Tokyo, a departement store, not having the greatest knowledge of Santa or Christianity, thought it a good idea to combine Jesus with Santa and had, as decoration for their store, a row of crucified Santas....

Didn't bother as there was no explanatory text about the link in that post. When that happens, same as with video with no explanations, I skip the post...
