Quick Links: How Far Is Far Enough

Apparently, some city officials in a cemetery in Colorado have refused to allow the name "Jesus" to be placed on a preacher's wife's gravestone:
Adams said her mother-in-law was passionate about her Christian faith and her family. Her final wish was to have her cemetery marker engraved with the ichthys, a symbol of early Christianity. She also wanted the word ‘Jesus’ written inside the fish. 
“At first they told us it wouldn’t fit,” Adams told me. “But after we kept pushing them the cemetery director told us that it might offend somebody. They weren’t going to allow it.” 
The family was devastated and asked the cemetery director to reconsider. He officials kept telling them that people would be offended by the name of Christ.

The name of Jesus has been banned... over this woman's dead body.
