But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    In regards to the flag SCOTUS was defiantly correct. The ownership of a given flag ultimately determines what is allowed to happen to it. I can still get into legal trouble burning my own flag should it cause other damage to property mot my own, but as I noted the flag burning in and of itself is not and never should have been illegal. For the statue, placing aside I've not yet seen specifically where it is located, trespass is probably still viable. Given that it belongs to someone other than the kid, desecration is still a viable choice. If that was his own family's statue, this would never have come an issue of law. Vandalism would be dependent upon the local law's definition.
    only if you can round up 11 different alleged accounts saying the wiccan views cause miracles

    remember kids 11 claims of testimony or it did not happen


    but if you get that then it logically must be true as long as no one can give definite motivations for why the 11 would lie(assuming the 11 witness are legit which you must)

    I find it disgusting that this is a misdemeanor. It ought to be punished by imprisonment.
    Why? It's just a statue.

    But consider this commandment "Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above"

    Is not that statue itself blasphemous?

    The Bedford county DA Bill Higgins has apparently been busy using this incident to post "Christianity under attack!!" facebook posts.

    "I guess I should take solace in the fact that the liberals are mad at me—again. As for this case, this troubled young man offended the sensibilities and morals of OUR community.… His actions constitute a violation of the law, and he will be prosecuted accordingly. If that tends to upset the 'anti-Christian, ban-school-prayer, war-on-Christmas, oppose-display-of-Ten-Commandments' crowd, I make no apologies."

    Meanwhile, the same married District Attorney has been accused of sexually assaulting a woman in July.

    Religious people can be so ridiculously touchy.

    People?

    It's a STATUE. Made of stone or rock or marble or some other mineral.

    It's just a thing.

    Lighten up...sheesh.

    What would Jesus say?

    "Dude, why would you care about a statue of me? Why even have one? Now stop the silliness and help me with the sick, homeless, and hungry. Priorities people!"
