Jesus Has Been Found!
However, the figurine has been defaced with a marker with ugly and nasty words and symbols.
Stolen baby Jesus figurine recovered - The Herald Dispatch
WOW! Such anger. The Easter story continues. And so it has been for more than 2000 years - actually from the beginning of time. I hope this story touches the hearts of many with the truth in the actions. I hope the anger exhibited by the defacing turns to repentance. I rejoice in the introspection many people will experience.
Here's a thought, now that it's been shown it's a "Hate Crime" against a specific religion, will it be prosecuted as one or just a simple misdemeanor/vandalism?
I retract my suggestion of community service, no one should be subjected to the likes of this "young man".
Yes it does indeed and appears to be getting worse as time progresses and we get more "modern" in our thinking and behaviour. Things like this just reaffirm my belief in it. The hatred exhibited against this representation of a baby Jesus shows just how much Christ and Christians are hated and if possible would be eliminated by those who think religion ought to be stamped out completely. I had an earlier thought posted that I may have read too much into this theft but now I see the news of finding the defaced Jesus clearly shows I was right. Christ is indeed under assault, but the truth is He has already won the victory and no evil can undo that.
I think the person who did this is eaten alive with evil intent. Defacing a Jesus figure is only the beginning. What's next?
This story has been ongoing since the original post, someone stole Jesus figure from Nativity scene, $500 reward. Jesus figure found by Police but defaced with nasty stuff.
Now.....TA DA! Here is the photo of said thief. He's a real winner too.
Arrest in baby Jesus case - The Herald Dispatch
Glad it was returned.. Interesting comments below the article. I got a laugh out of:
Hopefully now the Huntington police and the HD can get to the bottom of who stole my grandmothers garden gnome.
What an idiot.
This is the news site that sells the pictures on items. I wonder if they can caption the T-shirt with his photo "I was arrested for finding Jesus"?
That critter has a point on its head. What is it?
I'm not a religious person, but I respect a person's personal beliefs. My belief is that guy needs some respect pounded into his empty head!
Man what an idiot! Is he a Marshall student or just that stupid?
I think they sell these pictures as an opportunity for someone to post them on billboards along the highways that say, THIEF! Do not hire!
