    It was a shopping centre editing its own sign, after which it relented and apologized. The article never explained what the difference is between "Jesus" and "Christ" (obviously the first is a name and the second is a title) but it's a reasonable guess that the centre didn't want polarizing language on its entry sign as it might depress business therein. That would be my guess.

    Typical "something out of nothing" from the Rabid Right. I gotta say, they have the formula down pat and can get their hoard of followers foaming at the mouth in a matter of minutes. The truth takes so much longer to catch up, that by the time it does, there is a new "something" out there, and the truth never enters the frame.
