A T-Shirt ... what hill are conservatives finally ready to die on?

A man who was wearing a t-shirt that read “Jesus Saves” was reportedly kicked out of the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota for his shirt being too offensive for others.

Footage of the incident went viral and shows security officers telling the man wearing the green “Jesus Saves” shirt that his shirt was “offending” other shoppers in the mall.

The security would continue to tell the man he either had to remove his shirt or leave the mall.




The back of the man’s shirt read “Jesus is the only way” and had the word “coexist” crossed out.

According to Blaze, the video first emerged on Facebook on January 7th and has been making its way around the web ever since.

In the video, the officers were quoted saying, “Jesus is associated with religion, and it’s offending people.”

The man would respond, “I didn’t speak… I didn’t say anything. I just went to Macy’s.”

The man admits in the past he did preach the gospil in he mall... but he left that day when asked.


Many users on Twitter were shocked this occurred in the United States:

While I don't agree with the position I do support the mall's discretion of what's appropriate. Just find another place to shop, surely the mall isn't the only place to find your crap.

I'm 1000% sure that there is nothing in the Mall of America that I would want to spend my hard earned dollars on to purchase.

That being said, I'm not sure that is the point.
It's more about, weak minded fools becoming offended by the least little thing and then actually taking the time to report it to.... well, to anybody.

I find Che Guevara t-shirts offensive because he was a murdering communist. However, I don't run to the mall security office and act like a little bitch because I see one on some loser shopping at The Gap.

Agreed. Their mall = their rules. Their rules are stupid, but they have the right to determine who is allowed on their property. Also, the people that were offended should get a life.

Maybe that's what we need to start doing to make a point. '

I agree that the mall has the right to have such a policy, but it's a stupid policy and I hope no one shops there if they continue it.

This is probably a far bigger issue than a shirt in a mall. That people are so easily offended and think they have a right to exist free of other people's opinions is one of the things killing this country. If, in fact, the man was doing nothing other than wearing the shirt, it really shouldn't have been anyone's business.

We used to have a guy at the gym who always wore Obama shirts. While I thought him to be an idiot, I didn't say or do anything about it. Wasn't hurting me.

Wonder if they sell Biden shirts?
