The Christmas War Chapter 3: Defacing more then Nativity Scenes
PORTLAND, Oregon — Police in Portland say a maximum $1,000 reward has been offered for information leading to an arrest in the case of Italian marble religious statues damaged at a Catholic shrine and botanical garden. Sgt. Pete Simpson says three statues were damaged this week, with the heads removed. Police recovered one of the statue heads Friday after a passer-by called to say it was perched on a post at the west end of the 62-acre site popularly known as The Grotto. That head belonged to a statue of the Virgin Mary. Still missing are heads belonging to statues of St. Joseph and the infant Jesus. Simpson says the statues are more than 100 years old. Crime Stoppers is offering the reward. http://www.therepublic.com/view/story/ad3005a4ec1545dcae042da58952eeac/OR--Statues-Damaged More information will come as this develops. For now, I like one person's comment on the bottom: Because atheists are so tolerant. Those who shout loudest for tolerance are the least tolerant of all, don't you agree? Believe it or not, I pointed out this case to an atheist, and his explanation for it ( Just to clarify, he was not involved in it in any way)was---and I am not making this answer up--: "It's good this happened because this shows people religion is just a fairy tale." Giving an explanation that will not come across anyone's mind to justify the unjustifiable...how atheist of whoever did this. No wonder atheists are such morons.
