In effigy

This is the sort of thing you’d think would have been left behind years ago . . . but unfortunately not . . .

At George Fox University in Newberg, someone (students presumably) set up an image of presidential candidate Barack Obama, hanging in effigy. Fox is a Quaker school, and its religious influence has led the community toward both conservatism and nonviolence and anti-war strains. Someone evidently didn’t quite get the latter parts of the message.

University President Robin Baker apparently did, though, remarking of the incident: “Yesterday was not a good example of what it means to follow Jesus.”
