A crucifixion display drew controversy in southwest Florida Friday, with deputies ultimately responding to the scene and putting an end to the graphic presentation.
The display, which depicted a bloody Jesus with fake wounds tied to a cross, was erected on the side of a road in Lehigh Acres.
According to WFTX-TV, traffic came to a crawl as drivers slowed to catch a glimpse and take pictures. Some didn’t think the display was appropriate for the public, considering its bloody nature.
Police eventually arrived after receiving complains and told organizers to move their display somewhere else.

“For this reason the Father loves Me, because I lay down My life that I may take it again. “No one has taken it away from Me, but I lay it down on My own initiative. I have authority to lay it down, and I have authority to take it up again. This commandment I received from My Father.”

Tim Tebow will deliver the Easter sermon on Sunday at the Celebration Church in Georgetown, Texas, and the expected turnout is one more indication of Tebow’s enormous popularity.
The church told local TV station KVUE that it’s erecting bleachers on its 60-acre outdoor space for what it expects to be a crowd of as many as 30,000 people.
“Obviously it’s our Super Bowl,” said Joe Champion, pastor at the Celebration Church. “Easter is the resurrection of Christ, which we celebrate in our faith. We feel like it’s going to be a testimony to the community. We want it to be a family event.”
Tebow recently got a mani-pedi (first time I’ve ever typed that phrase) to get himself ready for the festivities, but Pastor Champion wants to make clear that it’s not all about glorifying Tebow.
“There will be the sacredness of Easter,” Champion said. “It’s not a Tim Tebow show. It’s not about a celebrity. There’s really only one celebrity that we are going to honor and highlight.”
