Crucifixion Controversy: Deputies order "Jesus" down from the cross

A Good Friday crucifixion display didn't quite go as planned as Lee county sheriff's deputies ordered "Jesus" to come down from the cross and move the show elsewhere.

"This gentleman has had a passion on his heart to do a representation public," one of the display organizers said of the man who was tied to the cross.

But it also generated some angry passion among drivers and pedestrians who didn't think the display should be set up right next to a busy intersection on public property.

Traffic backed up as drivers slowed down to catch a glimpse and take pictures.
Other passersby believed the bloody display was too much for children and others who might not be prepared for the very realistic scene.
