These abuses are sacrilege. They express a defiance of God and a hatred of holiness. People do these things because they feel safe in doing them - that they will never be accountable for spitting in the eye of God. They are angry people, too. We must pray that they will convert to the Lord before it’s too late.

Follow them home and check out their parents and maybe grandparents. Wait a minute, maybe they are parents or grandparents. We as a nation are sliding down a slippery slope! The headlines aren’t even half of it! May God have mercy on us and let us have a few more years that many will come to their senses. John 3:16

According to what I have read New Jersey has the Nations second largest Muslim population.

there may well be a reason to believe that this was an action of “religious jihad”. and given the sharp rise in such adventures in the middle east Id say it’s very likely that it was.

The last three nights the temps have been in single digits in South Jersey.

Got to be one sick individual who would go out and intentionally vandalize all those statues.

Vineland is/was a very traditional Catholic working class town, mostly Italian, German and Irish ancestries, until very recently, when it got its own tiny little Islamic center, although that center is the ONLY muslim business listed on this "Islamic Finder" site -- so it was apparently planted there by design. They have a special offering for "Latino muslims" -- presumably they've been busy trying to convert the many agricultural workers in the South Jersey farm belt.

Camel's nose is under the tent. This doesn't prove they are responsible for the vandalism, however; anti-Christianity has become very fashionable and is spread by many forms of media including violent cybergames.

IF it turns out to be a Moslem vandal, someone needs to plant-a-pig at their “center” some cold, wintry night.

Many Muslims revere the Blessed Virgin Mary whom they call 'Miriam' and wouldn't dream of doing that. In fact, some would defend the statue.

It is always queers who do this stuff.

I attended Saint Francis of Assisi church in Vineland in the 1960s. I also went to Catechism class there on Saturday mornings. Believe me as a kid I hated Catechism class. I remember Father Rich and Sister Mary Anthony. St. Francis had the best carnivals and BBQs! Vineland was just a farm community back then. I worked on many of the farms in the area.

is there to your knowledge any “gay marriage” at play In Maryland?

That would certainly provide these pukes with “inspiration”...

this is my first esposure to the term..and concept of Latino Muslims

Im not surprised just mildly jolted.

Destruction is growing in popularity amongst todays “teens”, and the likelihood is that some gaggle of punks has already put a video of their vile antics on their Fazedbook pages.

Very interesting that this happened in Vineland. This is where we were born-again in 1973 and still have "church" family there.

It was a beautiful town back then as was all of Cumberland County.

I think it is muzzie because of the type of vandalism. Muzzies do not believe in replicating facial featurs and they were careful to hurt the facial features and cut off heads. What more do we need to know.

You very well could have nailed it.

as quoted from the Koran and included in my current tagline:

“When you meet the unbelievers, strike at their necks...” — Qur’an 47:4”

the changes of “tone”..in society in general since 1973 are rather staggering.

I remember that. Visited you and your other half, with your brother-in-law, at that nice house you had there.

Maryland’s commie governor and the permanent Democrat majority rammed through gay marriage in 2012. So no reason to take it out on a statue this year.

Some very good memories from that period and our adventures in Jesus continue up-to-the-moment, getting better all the time!

Did not remember that you had visited us in NJ. "Landis House" was something special! Was just online chatting with friends from that Vineland church yesterday on a completely unrelated matter.

No Kidding! I mentioned it to The Lovely Mrs Prov1322 and her immediate reply was, "Of course I remember that"...so, now I am convinced that this is a conspiracy...

LOL!! It's OK; New Jersey is just a hop and a skip across the state of Delaware and the very wide Delaware River from Maryland.... from the Balt/DC area, you either have to drive about 40 miles farther than the crow flies or take a car ferry to get to Vineland, though.... bummer!
