It's not a crime in this country to make fun of ANYONE'S god. It's called the 1st Ammendment.

If you're going to flee your war torn country to come here, have some respect for existing laws and customs, that your new host country offers....it's the only civil thing to do.

How about a forum to discuss how government in a democracy can blow off the wishes of the people that this immigration be stopped? Maybe they can talk about how a tiny elite is making decisions about the future of the community while ignoring the people that live there.

Ignorant is not bliss and we live in the land of law abiding citizens, so charge the criminal according to the law.

There may not be a law on the books per se but there is plenty of legal action if you diss one of the "protected" class of people. To be "protected" is simply belonging to a group deemed "politically correct" by some airhead leftist. If the tables were turned & a Muslim did the same he would be exercising his 1st amendment rights, but let a white dude do it & its bigotry. The sad thing is that now that St Cloud has been adorned with the PC crowds favorite label, "intolerant", the city will go over the top to prove how culturally diverse they are by robbing its citizens of their hard earned money to pay for things like Muslim foot baths, requiring employers to provide prayer breaks(at company expense), & all kinds of silly govt sponsored cultural diversity programs. Don't like it in St. Cloud...... go back to some place like the twin cities where they'll kiss your behind to prove how PC they are.

You're right. Allah is a big fat fraud and Jesus was an obnoxious con artist.

That's exactly why Mr. Elyea is charged with violating an ordinance against posting materials on fixtures.

Come to St. Cloud for a day and you'll find that many of the immigrants have intentions of disrupting this community and expect handouts.
