Public funds should never even have been considered for this.

"Edmond Mayor Dan O'Neil said Wednesday he plans to secure private funding to
buy out the city's $3,900 commitment to help pay for a 26-inch-tall statue
titled "Come Unto Me" planned for a sidewalk outside a downtown Catholic gift
shop."

First of all, the city government should not be involved in this in any way, let alone the ones proposing and planning it. But first they wanted to use public funding for it. Sure, they want some piece of art commissioned by the city, go right ahead. But keep it secular AND tasteful. Not that hard, people.
