This was was in my local paper this morning
Baby Jesus figure damaged:
Priest calls it a "hate crime"
Religous statues targeted this time of year,police say
The Journel News
Larchmont, NY
Life sized statues of a glowing Mary & Joseph hovered over an empty manager
yesterday in front of Sts. John & Paul Church.
The baby Jesus statue had been the focus of the outdoor Navity scene since Christas Day was removed and wrapped in a towel after it was found with its
head, hands & toes broken off yesterday morning.Four sheep staues were also missing.
Please do not tell me there is not a problem with Christmas. Normal people would not do a thing like this. I would never ruin another persons religious symbol.
Also someone lead you to beleive you to think I am fixing a old lady in a nursing home. Not even remotely true, this is a young woman that will not look you in the eye unless you are a orthodox jewish person.Just going to treat her as she treat everyone else.
My supervisors received a bunch of season greeeting cards naming me as one of the people that "go beyond the call of duty to help".Just wanted to clear a few things up.

I don't know that it's a problem with Christmas - just a problem with *people* in general. All religions have gotten their share of threats, violence, etc.

Maybe it's just because I am getting older, but it sure seems to be that the collective temperature of our melting pot is rising. People are angry - angrier now than I think they have been in centuries.

Honestly, it sounds less of a "hate crime" and more of a crime from some teenagers that need to get their nether regions caught in a blender.

I think they're Scottish, too. The sheep are still missing...

The only reason it happened at Christmas is, well, because Christmas is the only time they put up nativity scenes!!!! It was probably a target of opportunity.
