Teen arrested for 'blasphemous T-shirt'

"A GOLD Coast teenager who wore a T-shirt by English extreme metal band Cradle of Filth that reads 'Jesus is a c**t' has been charged with offensive behaviour. Above the offensive slogan a nun is depicted masturbating. A 16-year-old was arrested on Monday for wearing the shirt and was charged with offensive behaviour under the Summary Offences Act 2005 for public nuisance. Senior Sergeant Arron Ottaway said the teen was walking along Hollywell Road, in Biggera Waters, when a officer saw him. Police conducted inquiries at Australia Fair, where the teen said he bought the shirt, to find any shops selling it."

I reckon this is the offending shirt. I thought this only happened in Iran.

Nope it happens here too, in the boonies at least. Totally legally contestable I'm sure, but not likely to be a worthy battle.

Not even a particularly good specific to defend either, haha. Mb if next time he stops just short of the masturbating nun. ;)
