How long before someone nicks it again?

Let’s run a competition as to how long it will take before this one is stolen.

Like Jesus, an anti-Trump billboard depicting the Republican candidate and the son of God on display outside an Auckland church has been resurrected.

The billboard depicting the Republican frontrunner for US president – or a cartoon of his likeness – was originally erected outside The Community of Saint Luke church in Remuera last month, where he criticises a crucified Jesus for being a “loser”.

But the day before Good Friday it was stolen.

The controversial billboard, much like the man depicted upon it, has been resurrected however, and now is back outside the Auckland church.  

It will remain up as long as the issue of Mr Trump’s candidacy remains undecided.

It’s not the first time the man behind the billboard, minister Glynn Cardy has used shocking billboards to get across a message.

When he was at Auckland’s St Matthew-in-the-City Church, he unveiled a risque billboard of Jesus’ mother looking dejected after unsatisfying sex with Joseph in 2009.

And again in 2011, the progressive church opted to depict a contemplative Virgin Mary holding a positive pregnancy test.

It will remain up as long as someone doesn’t nick it.

My pick is it will be gone by the weekend.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
