    I was scandalized the first time I saw one of these, but I guess in NYC you gotta compete.

    Wow Thanks OldLady
    These do mean different things.

    I prefer to teach that Christ Jesus means Restorative Justice,
    and including the Holy Spirit means Peace and Justice
    or Justice with Mercy.

    Salvation is one of the names, but
    Equal Justice Under Law is how I would translate "Jesus is Lord"
    into secular terms that even atheists, humanists, feminists or other nonchristians
    can understand as universal and including ALL people.

    Jesus as Justice is subject to human bias and gets us in trouble.
    People are going to fight over biased calls for Justice that
    appear to be for one group only and saying others are on the wrong side.

    True Justice that is universal and lasting applies and includes EVERYONE.

    Uniting in Christ to me means uniting by Conscience.
    Christianity means Charity.
    And being Christian is being Conscionable
    while being unchristian refers to behavior that is unconscionable.

    I use the term nonchristian to mean "not of that culture"
    but someone nonchristian can still be of the same faith, just not relate to the cultural practices
    or expressions.

    I use the term nontheist to refer to secular thinkers or terms
    that are neutral, so this isn't necessary against God Jesus the Bible or Christianity
    but recognizes secular gentiles are under natural laws and "nontheist" approaches.
    Jesus still governs those as a separate fold of the same flock.

    Wasn't it a Shopping Center in Australia that made the call? In the US, a politician would never get away with forcing that change on a Church.

    Look what they did with their gun problem.
