Only Kids Vandalize Manger Scenes? Think Again.

Do you ever wonder what goes through the minds of, supposedly, grown people who are supposed to be leading kids in a positive direction, but act like delinquent middle schoolers themselves?

Check out how this 46 year-old "coached" his students in Georgia:

"A public school coach in Marietta, Ga., drove students around the area in his pickup truck, instructing them to thrash Christmas displays after dark," [the Catholic] League said. During their Dec. 8 vandalism spree, 46-year-old John Hayes and several middle school students damaged a number of Christmas displays, let the air out of inflatable figures and rearranged plastic reindeer into X-rated sexual positions. According to the WGCL TV, Hayes has been charged with trespassing, contributing to the delinquency of minors and reckless conduct.

  • That was 3 years ago, surely he acts like a delinquent high schooler by now. But of course, since this guy did it in 2007, that must mean every act of vandalism is perpetrated by rabid Georgian sports coaches. It all makes sense now.

  • I didn't see manger scenes specifically mentioned but rather the coach instructed his students to vandalize ALL holiday decorations. Stop trying to turn everything into "poor persecuted Christian" act. But I do agree with him being charged for his acts.

  • Stupid kids often grow up to be just as stupid adults.

    What's up with all the examples of vandalism? This does nothing to prove ALL non-christians have it out for Christians.
