Update [1 November 2005]: Someone is selling T-shirts with an image like the one described below. I don't know if it's the same design or not, but this guy found this post and linked to it, which led me to discover the graphic. It provides a nice context for the discussion below even if it's not the same graphic (the information below seems to attribute the design to a different person). Now back to the original post:
I've been involved with an email exchange on a discussion list for one of the campus ministry groups at the university, and I decided this might be worth moving to my blog rather than clogging the mailboxes of over 100 people who are on that list. This way it will be accessible for those who want to see or take part in the discussion, but it's also not in the mailboxes of all the people who would otherwise have to see the messages.
It started with someone named Stephen (a common enough name, so I won't bother to anonymize him, though I've removed other identifying characteristics) who sent a message calling for people to protest the College Democrats' poster picturing Jesus punching President Bush. As bad as such a poster is, I don't think it's the Christian thing to do to engage in the kind of protest he was calling people toward, so I responded. The exchange is captured here.
