Why didn't you foresee this and protect or monitor it?
Nobody likes a reminder that they are a murderer.
That’s the simple explanation as to why you see such vehement and violent defense of abortion.
This will never be called a hate crime.
no security cameras?
I would put more stock in this being done by bored, ignorant teenagers who thought they were being clever.
Possibly, but I think the ones that did this can only aspire to reach the intelligence of Beavis and Butthead.
I second your idea. When you wave a red flag in front of an angry bull, you shouldn’t be surprised at it charging you.
In fact, this church needs to complement itself because it wanted to be provocative, and by George, it worked. So the important thing is to reinforce the message, but at the same time to secure it, because sure as a gun, the vandals will return.
But first, they need to ask a some questions:
1) If we identify the vandals, what will the local police and judges do about it?
2) Is it possible to sue the vandals in small claims court?
3) If we try to stop the vandals, will they get violent and try to hurt someone?
The ones who did this got the idea from Beavis and Butthead.
