I really hate to be a buttinsky here but what exactly is blasphemous about the "Jesus buddy" statue? I think that's a really strong word. I mean, irreverent, yes indeed. Goofy, indeed. Not suitable for veneration, for sure. But blasphemous? I dunno, I don't see anything in the thing that blasphemes Jesus Christ. If you don't think Jesus laughed, did goofy things, and gave whatever the 1st century Palestinian version of a thumbs up was, then do you really see him as fully man? The perfect man yes. But perfection doesn't mean "stick in the mud" does it? It reminds me of ultra rigid baptists who say "Jesus would never have turned water into WINE, it was grape juice"...uh have these people ever been to a Jewish wedding? Obviously not. Jesus Christ lived the fullness of human life. He laughed, danced, cried, acted goofy, and did all the things that are "unbefitting" of God because that is how much God loves us. Certainly the statue isn't an icon, but I think suggestions of throwing it in the trash are extreme. If one is to dispose of it it should be disposed of in a proper manner, after all it is an image of Jesus and should be treated with some form of respect.
To the OP, I certainly would not venerate it or put it in an icon corner but I also can't see how throwing it in the garbage is a good idea either.
