Again "put up with it"??? Really? Just seeing something as you walk past is such a burden?
I also wanted to mention that it is totally about the location. If someone wanted to put a 7' statue of SP in their front year then whatever. If even the town wanted to put a collection of cartoon characters in the center town green then whatever. It is the location of a sacred burial ground that is the problem. I understand that not all of you see cemeteries that way but many do. It is offensive.
It's interesting to me that if someone was to visit their loved one's grave site and saw a 7' gravestone, they would actually take the time out to complain and lose sight of the real reason why they are there. I don't like a lot of stuff but I would never ever challenge someone regarding the grave stone they or the deceased person chose.
Have any of you complained when walking by a very tall obelisk gravestone in a cemetery?
Havent chimed in on this one because I really cannot fathom anyone taking the time to complain about something like this. I dont visit any loved ones in a cemetery because I dont think they are there anymore. But if someone finds comfort from seeing this statue then whey would I complain about it?
BTW I HATE sponge bob, my children are not even allowed to watch it.

What bothers me about the SB statue is him wearing military insignia. It just seems disrespectful and tacky toward service members in general.
And it was already stated that a 7' anything is basically blah, cross or not.
I think cemeteries should post a sign that says, "NO COMPLAINING."
P.S. I don't find the military insignia on SB to be disrespectful either. My father served for almost 30 years and I can guarantee he'd find it funny/cute and say, "If that's what she wanted."

I think the bottom line on this is that the cemetery is covering the family's expense and admitting they made a mistake. I am not bothered by such things but obviously many others are.
