The Huffington Post has posted a delightful slideshow called “The Funniest Protest Signs of 2009.” A few of the highlights include “Thank You, Fox News, For Keeping Us Infromed” and “Gay People Can Quote the Bible, Too,” under which is written, “A marriage shall be considered valid only if the wife is a virgin. If the wife is not a virgin, she shall be executed (Deuteronomy 22:13-21).”
I also love the enigmatic “Don’t Steal from Medicare to Support Socialized Medicine.” Come again? You lost me at the moment you decided to protest something.
But here’s the one that had me laughing so hard I didn’t think to wonder whether a kid should be at a political rally making violent threats:
Evidently, the kid was attending a protest aimed at the Mormon Church, which was spending millions to outlaw same-sex marriage in California.
What do you think of this sign? It’s hard to tell the kid’s age, but he (or she?) doesn’t look much older than twelve, and I do have mixed feelings about getting kids involved in the polarizing anger of politics. Then again, this sign is clearly awesome.
