Around 3:25 p.m. someone called police complaining about a man dressed as Jesus, covered with fake blood, being scouraged by another man with a rope in the mall parking lot.

The caller said that children were upset by the display and that shopping plaza employees were trying to get "Jesus to leave."

when police arrived the man was gone.
One officer responed ny saying; "I am confident that (Jesus) will be back some day soon."

In your opinion what do displays do for the Christian faith? Are they good or bad?

Some displays are good, some are bad. This sounds like a bad one.
