Remember the 18-foot-wide sign welcoming visitors to the city of Hawkins, Texas?
Mayor Will Rogers had defended the Jesus-tastic sign even after receiving a letter of complaint from the Freedom From Religion Foundation. At one point, he said it wasn’t religious at all. He later said the sign should stay because Jesus was like Superman — and if the FFRF didn’t want a fictional being (in their opinion) welcoming people to Hawkins, then they would oppose Superman, too. So there.
Eventually, the city council voted to do the right thing and take down the sign.
I thought we were done with this story, but it just got weirder after that.
