BOWLING GREEN, KENTUCKY, April 24, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com) Campus police stood by as students placed condoms over thousands of tiny crosses as part of an approved university art project, according to a pro-life student at Western Kentucky University. The campus group Hilltoppers for Life obtained university permission to erect 3,700 crosses, commemorating the number of babies aborted each day in America, as part of its Cemetery of the Innocents.
John Sohl, the organizations president, said he confronted two vandals early Friday morning with his video camera. One of them told me at the beginning of this that she did have her teachers permission to do this, this was her art project, Sohl said.
When he told the pair their actions may constitute vandalism, the woman complained, I think its kinda weird that youre allowed to express yourself, and Im not.

Since when did vandalism become free speech?
Would those be taxpayer funded condoms?
That's not very PC. I would have calmly followed behind her and removed her "art". Then I would have recorded the violence that was perpetrated on you and condoned by her teacher on camera. I would have filed charges against her, her friends and the teacher for encouraging a hate crime against Christians.
Beat them at their own game. Don't emulate them. But I understand your frustration and enthusiasm.
They should have gone all Kent State on those guys.
Yeah, no kidding! As long as your insulting and desecrating Christians and their symbols people tend to look the other way.
Exactly! So if I go spray paint a building on their campus in the name of art and say that my professor was cool with it than everything is great right?
This pisses me off!
Truth be told, I probably wouldn’t have done that. But one can dream can’t they LOL!
I know! My blood boiled when I read about this crap!
This will cheer you up a little. It’s something someone e-mailed sci-fi writer John C. Wright concerning the matter earlier on in the month, and he put it up on his blog. It is pretty funny and awesome, especially the remarks/replies of “Officer Comedian” to the apprehended vandals.
This won’t play well in Bowling Green...its in the “Bible Belt”. And as an Alumnus, I’m calling the prez.
How about these “brave” and “enlightened” souls do a Muhammad in a toilet exhibition next? Watch the cowards run and hide from THAT “art”.
Liberals are too cowardly to attack a Koran. Most pick on targets that won't fight back. Heads up student, Christianity doesn't allow killing babies or same gender sex but if you aren't careful you will be praying 50 times a day facing Mecca, wearing cloth from head to toe, denied your schooling, possible future rape and all kind of nice things your muslim buddies will have in store for you. Oh, and if that happens, try burning/spitting on/ defacing the Koran - just try - make my day.
Thanks! I needed that!

I’ve already sent him an e-mail explaining how I felt.
Yeah, I would love to see them try that! I won’t hold my breath though.
I was thinking about this, and I have come to the conclusion that every single “art” exhibit approved by the campus including “pro choice” displays can be tampered with in the name of art right/ After all, that’s only fair!
Like that'll ever happen... We all know at our core that THE conflict, at its core, is Christ vs the prince of this world. You're on a side, which will it be?
