Hate crime.   They need to be locked up for decades.



Statues vandalized at Catholic churches in New Jersey

Sunday, January 26, 2014

Police are investigating after several statues were found damaged and beheaded at Catholic churches in southern New Jersey.

Police found statues of Jesus, Mary and Joseph smashed and vandalized at two churches in Vineland last week.

Several statues were also missing their heads.

This comes just months after similar vandalism was found at a nearby church.

Overall nearly a dozen religious statues at two churches were damaged and destroyed.

The attacks are deeply personal for parishioners of the churches.

"I can't imagine what's going through the mind of person that would deliberately go and deface statues that are dedicated to our savior," said one parishioner, Jose Rodriguez.

Police believe the Catholic churches are being targeted, but the Camden Diocese does not want to limit access to the statues for parishioners. They intend to rebuild the statues.

I can't imagine how troubling this must be for the people who raised the money to pay for the statues.

Vandals need serious help.

i dont know if it was a serious message about religion or not - could just be that those are eays targets for those looking to be destructive more than some kind of "lets teach those believers".
regardles... vandalism is ugly.  i hope they get caught.

Locked up for decades? Hate crime?

Do tell psychic Tanya

Oh right, you are just making that up.

More lies, assumptions and bullshit

Maybe it's a mentally ill person

Maybe it's a group of teens acting like assholes

Maybe it's a victim that was raped by a priest and this is their misguided revenge

Who knows

Certainly not you

You try so hard.   And fail even harder.

Everyone knows when something happens to a minority, it is a hate crime.  Catholics are minorities.  So it is obviously a hate crime.


Have a good night.

I don't even need to read the article to know I will be disgusted by the actions of these people.

Too many feel it is acceptable to do things like this.

Bet they are proud they made the news.

Years ago there was a man that did something similiar to the Mary statue of my church growing up

He did it a few times (not the head, he would always break the hand off)

When someone finally turned him in it was a guy that lived across the street from the church and school and there was no real reason

He complained about traffic in the morning (it was next to the school) but said he didnt know why he did it

They just made him make payments ...not sure how long he did. It was weird because everyone knew and we would see him all the time
