"They were looking for things to do," Det. Ken Kelly said. "They told us, `We were going to have a baby Jesus burning party.'" One suspect told detectives, "We just wanted to see their heads burning," Kelly said.
The baby Jesus figures, now at the police station, were probably stolen from homes and churches around the Sayreville area within the past few weeks, officers said. "It looked like a maternity ward," Lt. Glenn Skarzynski said of the figurines. He added, "Anyone able to identify their particular baby Jesus will be able to be reunited."
Should I bring dental records?
I'll just point out that it says something about Christianity that something like this is merely in incredibly poor taste rather than utterly suicidal for the participants.
Trust me: it says more about New Jersey.
Modern Christianity, maybe.
Quit pegging my puerility detector. I go through enough of the damn things already.
Yeah, those Buddhists would totally kick your ass if you pulled this. They know kung fu.
Buddhists don't believe in the concept of blasphemy, tho'. Sorry to spoil your joke.
As a Buddhist, I find that remark blasphemous in the extreme.
*turns into pillar of salt*
But Christians do believe in the concept of idolatry, which sort of spoils the whole creche-thing in the first place.
Dunno. I think it's illegal to do much of anything that you might consider blasphemous to a Buddha image in Thailand.
Yeah. Those buddhists are pretty attached to their baby Jesus dolls.
What does it say? That Christians don't generally go around murdering blasphemers these days?
I think <lj user="korgmeister"> was talking about how Muslims wet their fucking pants whenever something sacrilicious is done to their stuff.
Still that's not really a credit to Christians as much as it is an indication of how sthensthitive people are about Islam.
Did they confiscate them because A) they were "probably" stolen B) they were going to light a dangerous fire or C) they were going to BURN BABY JESUS? That's my question.
I was wondering the same damn thing!
