May be the idea is that when the mexican drug dealers will see this horror they will be rendered incapable to fight by the nausea. Even the nun in the photo seems to have a hard time carrying that thing. Those people are just crazy...loony and freaky...

I don't think so!

Some Mexicans have branched out and developed their woo beyond Catholicism! Some seem to be exporting it!

Now if I think of it I think you are wright. And I forgot about the aztec traditions involving blood. Since these preChristian traditions are imbedded in the popular christian believes this might be way to have an impact on some mexicans. Appealing to this kind of things (relics of dead people - usually the hole body but parts of it also) is a customary way of attracting large groups of people by the Orthodox church in my country (Romania). And you would be amazed how large those groups are. It is mass superstition at is best.

Leave PZ alone [...]

Agree. PZ Myers' argument was one of the best. And the ending word of Carolyn Porco was just wonderful. As wonderful as the Universe she studies every day.

Great billboards indeed. I like the third one because it gets precisely to the point. If religious people might feel offended is not because these billboards are aggressive but because those people know how weak their conviction really are. Their eventual reaction is an attempt to convince them selfs they are right.
