Last week, I posted about an 18-foot-wide sign that greets visitors to the city of Hawkins, Texas:

Mayor Will Rogers was defending the sign despite a letter of complaint from the Freedom From Religion Foundation, and his arguments are just getting more and more ridiculous.

His latest one was offered at last night’s city council meeting. Rogers argued that the sign should stay because Jesus is like Superman:
