I bet you that it was done by Queers trying to get some attention.

someone should enlighten them to Jesus’ views on homosexuality

Church officials came in before the Christmas morning service to find that someone had pushed over the two gay couples and left the heterosexual couple standing.

I'm not for vandalizing anyone's private property, but this seems like the non-story of the year to me. I mean, a couple of decorations were pushed over? Gee, how many hundreds of thousands of dollars will it take to, you know, pick them back up?

More fodder for the victimhood junkies.

As long as other vandalism is permitted there is no hate crime.

Isn't it funny how a couple of statues being knocked over is a hate crime? I bet you that if a heterosexual, christian, European American male were knocked over in real life by a group of minorities it wouldn't constitute as a hate crime.

What’s funnier to me is watching the TV segment. The whole time they’re bitching with the tipped-over thing in the background I was saying, “Just walk over and pick the damned thing UP!” It’s glowing away so obviously there’s nothing wrong with the light fixtures, yet they leave it on its side during the night news shoot for visual reasons, when we can see from earlier video that the vandalism was found in the daytime and one of the two pushed-over boxes was righted—why was the other put on its side? (This might be explained in the audio, my computer’s busted and can’t get sound.)

The whole news piece was something I’d like to keep to show people how news is invented. If I worked at that church and came to work and found the things tipped over—you know, like KIDS have been doing to property for eons!—I’d have righted the thing and gone about my day.

But these boobs have to make a flippin’ federal case out of it.

It is more likely the gays tipped over the figures themselves to get the publicity.

Really? The hate crime was building a homosexual nativity scene. How about investigating that and making an arrest for a hate crime against God..........

Seems that a gay nativity scene is a hate crime against Christians.

Lets see if have the liberal calculus straight on this stuff.
Having a picture of Mohamed is a hate crime.
Having a gay nativity is ok.
Tipping over a gay nativity is a hate crime.

These liberal hate crime rules are labyrinthine.

Murphy v. Ramsey and Others 1885 “...no legislation can be supposed more wholesome and necessary in the founding of a free,self governing commonwealth...that that which seeks to establish it on the basis of the idea of the family,as consisting of and springing from the union for life of one man and one woman in the holy estate of matrimony...” Now the very definition of fraud would be made manifest in this blasphemous suggestion of a Christmas nativity that suggests it was any other married couple than Joseph and Mary... While I support the right of private property gross distortion of the imagery reflecting hte reason for the Season is just WRONG!

Oh and lest I forget to mention it—IMO if the church was the
one who put up this blasphemy —I can’t help but wonder what else they would/have changed of the Gospel story. I could Not encourage any to remain in her—but instead loudly shout from the mountain top and in the desert and in the street” Come out of her my people!” IMO any correction done to this corruption can in no way be a Hate Crime—for the HATE was in corruption of the Nativity displayed on that property.

So the democrat government has created special classes of people whom they provide special privileges to and cause more severe punishment to those who disagree with those “special classes of people”. I do HATE that!

If the depiction were of a gay, Black couple, would it be a double hate crime?
And if you get multiple ‘hate crimes’ in the same instance shouldn’t it warrant at least the death penalty?

Maybe we could make the punishment ‘Stoned to death’

Kind of like the kid getting his arse waled yelling out
“Gee you told me you and your pals used to tip over outhouses when you were kids”.
“Not with my Grandfather in it you fool”.

I don’t really want to know, but how can you make a Nativity scene a gay nativity scene.

Do you dress them in pink? Or are there two Joseph’s and no Mary?

It’s friggin insane the extremes these fags go to.

Let us imagine the following...

“A statue of the pedo Mohamed abusing a young girl,say a 9 year old girl. If a muslim decides to knock the statue over, would he be sued for hate crime or would he be let off as he felt offended ?

It never cease to amaze me that offending Christians is totally acceptable.

The church allowing that display should be burnt down.

The homosexual statues couldn't contain themselves and went to it right there in the Nativity.

So typical of gay blades ~ no respect for anyone else's rights.

The question has to be asked -

if a homosexual or homo activist were to vandalize a Christian display or property,

would it be a “hate crime”?

If not, the homos’ whining needs to be ignored.

They failed to note that there always queers at the birth.

Some say the three wise men were actually a menage a trois

Also, queer angels were not seen because they were still in the closet

More likely still that someone was merely trying to have sex with them.
