    Read on a news email service that there are a number of Nativity scene defacings across the nation. One school coach drove students around doing so in GA.

    In Oregon some have had the Jesus figure stolen and in its place a pigs head has been left. Just heard that the Eugene, OR police call it a victimless crime. Had it been a Muslim representation I'd bet it would have been a hate crime.

    Only charged thus far.

    Here is the news note: Numerous Nativity Scenes Vandalized Nationwide
    With Dec. 25 only days away, CNSNews.com reports a central image in the celebration of Christmas - the manger scene featuring replicas of Joseph, Mary and the baby Jesus - has become the focus of attacks by vandals and leaders of "the secular Left," Christian groups charged on Wednesday. While the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights was erecting a nativity scene in New York City's Central Park, the group issued a news release condemning three dozen instances in which manger scenes were vandalized or stolen from Antioch, Calif., to Leesburg, Va., this Christmas season. "In perhaps the sickest incident, a public school coach in Marietta, Ga., drove students around the area in his pickup truck, instructing them to thrash Christmas displays after dark," 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. From Crosswalk.com news email service 12-21-07.

    In our area the last couple of years, people kept having their baby Jesus stolen from their manger scenes. I don't think it even made the back page of the paper.
