The American Theocracy - Number Two

You shall not make unto you any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth
~ Exodus 20:4, RSV ~
Application: Symbols and imagery that are not connected to Evangelical Christianity will be outlawed. There will be a brief grace period to allow such images to be removed from the public space. After the grace period ends, government officials will order removal and bill the offending party.

In addition to the requirements related to public spaces, clinics will be set up to examine body art on all US residents. Any symbol or image that does not celebrate God/Jesus' mercy on humankind will be removed at the individual's cost plus a punitive fine of $500.

Exceptions: Though it will never be explained to the public, 60 foot tall Jesus statues will be erected in every county. Crosses, depictions of the crucifixion, and all sorts of church-related sculpture and artwork depicting God somehow will be exempt too. If a person tries to point out the rampant contradiction here, they will be thrown in jail.
