UPDATE: Spot the Jesus Snowplow on Saturday!

UPDATE: No Jesus Snowplows! I repeat NO Jesus Snowplows! At least the ones that were on display did not have any reference to Jesus. One of the Catholic schools had their logo on it, that is kind of a sacred heart in a flower, but that was about as close as it got. Even the Lutheran School refrained. They had the message ‘Choose Joy’ on their plow, which I thought was kind of cool. The big theme this year was Van Gogh. One of the plows was a combination of Starry Night with a silhouette of the Statue of David. I’m sure this probably stems from the killer movie coming out which is entirely made from animated paintings;

Now becoming a yearly holiday tradition for DaCola, see if you can find the unconstitutional snow plows;

The Eighth Annual Paint the Plows event will display 22 plows painted by area students this Saturday, October 21, 2017, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The plows will be on exhibit at the Empire Mall in the JCPenney east parking lot.

But, hey, when you want to go against constitutional law, all you need is a disclaimer;

The City of Sioux Falls does not censor the content or any viewpoints on the artwork. Any messages or views expressed are not those of the City or endorsed by the City.

It’s NOT censorship when it’s unconstitutional. But the mayor isn’t going to let some blogger tell him how to practice his fake Christianity.

If I don’t find any Jesus Snowplows this year, I think I will present the Mayor and City Council with a ‘Constitutional Achievement Merit Award’.

Actually, the Jesus snowplows actually got me in hot water at work when one of the cry baby candidates in the last municipal election called our sales manager and complained about my blog post about his relationship with the topic. Doubt he will run for office again anyway after he got his ass handed to him.

So, given your position on this subject, you would be in favor of the city public libraries removing and banning all books that mention religion, too?

So, it’s ok to paint Jesus. Can’t we just worship the plow because it came soon after a snowstorm and used the snow gate.

Anon, weak, weak argument. I was unaware our public libraries had crosses painted on the side of them or that the librarians were promoting a certain religion. The difference is public libraries have books on ALL religion and differing views on religion including texts on atheism. There has been only ONE view of religion painted on the snowplows, Christianity.

So your saying there is an athiest school, a jewish school and a muslim school which are being denied the ability to paint a snow plow? Weak, weak defense.

Books are freedom of speech that represent many religious persuasions. They are reading choice that’s not advertisement. Church and state must always be separated. If you’re Muslim, Buddhist, Atheist, or Snake Worshipper this plow is discrimination. It’s an insult that constitutionally violates freedom of religion.

Strong Mayor Charter is regular constitutional violations and taking the name of the Lord in vain. It’s shameful and embarrassing to live in this seceded city.

Thanks to “God hugging us a little closer,” as Sarah Palin once said, the public use and display of our Christian plows is in less need…. How ironic…..
