Would you find it disrespectful if a non-christian destroied a church or other sacred christian object?

Or is it not an issue of respect simply because they aren't Christian?

How is it that people don't extend simple respect to places and items?

  • I am a Christian and yes I would find it disrespectful. Just like I find it disrespectful that Christians have destroyed Wiccan faith objects in a US military base. (They set up an area for worship and it was desecrated by "Christians".)

  • Destroying something that belongs to another is not only disrespectful, but criminal. If a person destroys a religious object that belongs to them, it's their business.

  • Of course it's disrespectful. They are damaging something that does not belong to them. It doesn't matter if it's a religious object, keying somebody's car, or drawing graffitti about a rival gang.

    Why? Rebellion, hatred, poor upbringing, or any number of other reasons people break the law.

  • Destruction in general is disrespectful- HOWEVER, there are places that religious symbols of ANY flavor (faith) do not belong.

    Please correct me if I am wrong, but christians are not supposed to have "sacred objects", or really take stock in ANY material possession, they are to "store up their treasures in heaven"... So, technically, there are not supposed to be "sacred objects" which would allude to pagan worship practices. The body of the church IS its sacred object, not a place or thing...
