    Antifa possibly behind this.

          Or naked idolatry

            So, did they bow before the statue and offer sacrifices, or at least genuflect, or stand in awe?

              Touché. =) Semi-clothed idolatry, then.

                I don't know - haven't watched any of it at all.

                  There is a picture circulating the Internet where one attendee is, in fact, bowing before the statue. Maybe they should watch The Ten Commandments again.

                    Do you know that he was being serious, or was just mocking it? Again, I paid NO attention to it this weekend.

                      No idea but I don't think it matters... I think even bowing down before a statue in jest is still idolatry... just like if you use profanity "as a joke", you're still cussing. But this conference is off my radar too so I'm just reporting what I've seen from others.

                        People can do stupid things without it being idolatry -- without knowing what happened, the guy could have been mocking the fact that it's an idol -- I don't know, but I'm not so quick to judge.

                        I can't even imagine anybody using profanity as a joke. That just doesn't make sense.

                          I thought it was hilarious watching all of the liberals get triggered over this.

                            I think that was probably the motivation.

                              Or he did specifically because he knew it would trigger liberals. I would suspect that was the whole intent behind the statue itself, a sort of, "Hey, y'all, watch this!" as they laugh at Obama-worshiping liberals unironically condemn a gaudy Trump statue.
                              Some may call me foolish, and some may call me odd
                              But I'd rather be a fool in the eyes of man
                              Than a fool in the eyes of God
