    Sort of like the terrorist who got worked up over Charlie Hebdo? Have these Christian protesters killed anyone over it?

    Why are people so mean to others?

    There are some things that some people hold sacred during a time of year that is special, heart-warming, in the spirit of generosity and compassion, only to have others come by and ruin it all for everyone.

    It's like someone defacing a picture of your mother (or someone you love dearly) for public shock value.

    Why be so mean and cruel?

    Normally I might find something like this slightly offensive out of a sense of respect but not offensive enough to protest. But given the take over of the zombie culture, it's actually a little bit funny. And it's not like it's using any sort of stereotype to degrade the Christian faith. It doesn't seem all that derogatory in the context. Seems more like a theme Christmas.

    And in an odd way it's not completely inappropriate because the religion involves proselytizing, so in a zombie culture, they'd be converted too, right?

    Okay, now lets take this a little extreme since we're already on zombies. I mean no offense by this...

    How much ya wanna bet that more white Americans get more upset over a black nativity scene--even if they don't burn a cross dare say anything--than would get upset over a silly zombie one.
