I think they kind of missed the whole point of the Statue of Liberty. She was not made just to welcome the white gentry from England.
"Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
I assume those good folks from Orange County are also pissed of about Jesus hanging around with thieves and whores.
