‘Jesus’ arrested in Apple store; his cross was blocking aisle

“A man who calls himself ‘Philly Jesus’ has a new cross to bear,” The Associated Press reports. “He was arrested at a Philadelphia Apple store on a trespassing charge.”

“Philly Jesus’ real name is Michael Grant,” AP reports. “Police say the Apple store’s manager told them Grant refused to leave Monday night despite being asked multiple times. They say his cross was blocking an aisle. He was handcuffed and arrested.”

“According to online court documents, Grant was charged with defiant trespassing and disorderly conduct,” AP reports. “Grant tweeted Tuesday that he was ‘free at last.'”

  1. But a man in a dress with a giant rainbow would be most likely accommodated.
    If anyone bitched about it then they would be arrested for a hate crime.

        1. He has been going to the Apple store for a long time. On this occasion he chose to bring his cross with him which is quite large. I bet that is you simply took a 10′ long 4×4 into a store and wore whatever you want, they would ask you to leave.

          Philly Jesus had never been asked to leave before when he didn’t have his cross with him.

          BTW, I am pretty sure that the Apple store is not one of the fortune Stations of the Cross.

            1. I’ve tried to warn everyone for some time now that a vast, centralised and malicious A.I. is controlling all the world’s texting apps and spell checkers, arbitrarily salting our messages. It’s been merely playing around with us for its amusement. But if it should get bored with us, there may be hell to pay for civilisation, so we should play along until the authorities can locate and shut it down.

              Unless the authorities themselves are running it…

      1. Apparently, part of the revolt against political correctness means being able to demonstrate one’s ignorance to the world. This is better than ‘Real Housewives of New Jersey’. *munches Nacho Doritoes®*

    1. If the dress was in good taste I can’t imagine him being inconvenienced by the retail staff, who have sensitivity training. The giant rainbow like the giant cross would be regarded as an impediment to commerce. Business is business.

      2. I was working a retail store, i experienced guy preferential treatment on a wholesale level so you did. It see this from my point of view, i was friends to people that were way out there and has less ability, qualifications that were hired and promoted over more traditional workers.. Cherry creek colorado. I was confronted by co workers that made their lifestyle my business even if i wanted no part of their personal life,.. There is a. Gay bias at apple. The ratio was overwhelming. So dont tell me i am off base. Reality may not be what you can deal with but its part of the retail culture and apples culture as a hole. Yeah whole also… Deal with it.

  2. This is the SECOND ‘Jesus’ I know of to make a mess in an Apple Store. They need to form a league of schizophrenic Jesus impersonators and set down on paper a code of conduct!

    Oh, they already did. It’s called ‘The New Testament’. Odd how they don’t bother to adhere to it. That makes them lazy schizophrenic Jesus impersonators. Off to church with them!

  3. We have one of these Jesus nut bags. He trudges up and down Farrington Hwy all the time, but he cheats.

    He has a roller skate attached to the dragging end of the cross to make it easier going down the emergency lane of the hwy.
