Imagine my surprise this year when I perused the plows and saw NO crosses painted on them?! I hope our public works department can manage plowing our streets without the Savior to guide them?
But of course, there were a couple of absconders that still had to push the envelope in their quest to convert us all to good Bible loving boys and girls while we navigate the winter streets. I think O’Gorman had the most clever by recreating a scene from the Sistine Chapel by adding elements of a Metallic Album cover;
Lars would be proud!
And apparently God is like a big supreme pizza with a zipper in it (the rumor is Heaven smells like a NYC Pizzeria with just a pinch of English Lavender!)
Even the Mayor’s family got out the paintbrushes;
I guess the boss vetoed the original design of a naked native gentleman taking a nap in a snowbank (and those stick arms on the snowman could be misconstrued as crucifixes!)
But you gotta hand it to the only private Christian school that decided to go with a Jaws theme this year and give up on the conversion therapy via snowplow (they must be reading Leviticus right now).
The most amazing part to me is that all these news organizations cover this event, and they should, but none of them ask the lingering 1st Amendment question about separation of church and state. I’m wondering if they would have staged a food truck by the event yesterday we could get the news crews to show up and do an actual story about this. And BTW, what happened to the disclaimer signs!?
Personally if I ever had to paint one of these plows I would go with the classic Man Ray image;
