Christmas Displays Vandalized, and Pastor Assaulted!

Dozens of Christmas Displays Vandalized, Pastor Assaulted, Reports Christian Group

Nearly 30 acts of vandalism against Nativity scenes or Christmas displays and at least one case of physical assault against a Christian pastor have occurred over the last few weeks, according to the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights, which tracks many such incidents every holiday season.

“When you see all these examples” of vandalism and assault, “it is shocking,” said Susan Fani, communications director for the Catholic League, a conservative civil rights organization. “And we’re saying, ‘Take a look at this – this shows an animus against Christianity.’”

In Sandusky, Ohio, a 50-year-old figure of the Baby Jesus was stolen from a Washington Park display and later found hanging from a ceiling fan at the alleged thief’s apartment on Dec. 12.

In Waggaman, La., a 38-year-old man and two teenagers were arrested for vandalizing Christmas lawn displays at five different homes, the Jefferson Parish sheriff’s office announced on Dec. 18.

A 50-year-old statue of a shepherd was decapitated at a Nativity center in downtown Kingsport, Tenn., on Dec. 18.

A Nativity scene outside a Christian church in Christoval, Tex., was splattered with red paint, reported the Catholic League, and in Riverside, Calif., a pastor was brutally beaten and robbed behind his church as he went to a supply room to get a Christmas bulb.

According to The Press Enterprise, 49-year-old Pastor James Dennis Warman was struck repeatedly in the head by two assailants on Dec. 7. He is now in a medically induced coma and not able to speak, and he may have brain damage, according to his wife, Mendy Warman.

Susan Fani told CNSNews.com that that Catholic League recorded at least 40 cases of vandalism (and related violence) against Christmas displays in 2007. It recorded 28 cases in 2006, 58 in 2005 and 16 in 2004.  Fani noted, however, that the group, given its resources, cannot keep track of every act of anti-Christmas violence nationwide.

“What we’re trying to do is just shed light on what is going on out there because there is a war on Christmas, and one of the fronts is the vandalism,” said Fani.  “And for those who deny there’s a war on Christmas – well, when you have attacks on ministers and taking a Baby Jesus statue and hanging it from a ceiling fan, this shows a really dangerous animus. That concerns us much more than the pranks.”

However, Annie Laurie Gaylor, co-president of the Freedom from Religion Foundation (FFRF), said that the “war on Christmas” claim is not very original and that Bill Donohue, president of the Catholic League, is “full of hot air.”

“It’s just a PR game for them to do this kind of thing this time of year,” Gaylor told CNSNews.com.  “They (Christians) are the least oppressed religion in the country, let me tell you. They try to call the shots, and they dictate terms to our government, and they have (President) Bush kow-towing to them and he’s not even a Catholic. That was the only reason he vetoed stem cell research.”

The FFRF, according to its Web site, “is the largest association of freethinkers (atheists and agnostics) in the United States.”

Gaylor said that the FFRF has erected numerous displays on public property that have been vandalized. Some of the group’s signs discuss the “Winter Solstice” or say “Imagine No Religion.”

“Our sign at the Wisconsin state capital in the past has been stolen, it had acid poured on it,” said Gaylor. “When we’ve tried to do so-called public forums in parks at this time of year and put up our own banners, we’ve had them painted over, stolen and set on fire. So, there is no such thing as a public forum for religion on government property in December because the majority of religion always ends up winning. … When we try to put up our signs, we are muffled — crimes all over the place.”

It is Christians who “are doing the persecuting” by trying to keep religion in the public square, said Gaylor. “But if they can say they are being persecuted, it’s good for their religion.”

Will You Think Twice About Being a Good Samaritan

with 5 comments

This goes so far beyond a frivilous lawsuit!  What is happening to our court systems?  Are the individuals we put in there learning from the Politicians that so many people vote in?

I just don’t get how a court could rule this way.  I mean next thing we’ll see is that someone can be charged with murder if they are at an accident scene, but don’t want to take the risk of being a Good Samaritan.

Maybe someone can explain this logic to me, because I can’t figure it out.

Calif. Court: Would-be Good Samaritan can be sued

LOS ANGELES —  Proving that no good deed goes unpunished, the state’s high court on Thursday said a would-be Good Samaritan accused of rendering her friend paraplegic by pulling her from a wrecked car “like a rag doll” can be sued.

California’s Supreme Court ruled that the state’s Good Samaritan law only protects people from liability if the are administering emergency medical care, and that Lisa Torti’s attempted rescue of her friend didn’t qualify.

Justice Carlos Moreno wrote for a unanimous court that a person is not obligated to come to someone’s aid.

“If, however, a person elects to come to someone’s aid, he or she has a duty to exercise due care,” he wrote.

Torti had argued that she should still be protected from a lawsuit because she was giving “medical care” when she pulled her friend from a car wreck.

Alexandra Van Horn was in the front passenger seat of a car that slammed into a light pole at 45 mph on Nov. 1, 2004, according to her negligence lawsuit.

Torti was a passenger in a car that was following behind the vehicle and stopped after the crash. Torti said when she came across the wreck she feared the car was going to explode and pulled Van Horn out. Van Horn testified that Torti pulled her out of the wreckage “like a rag doll.” Van Horn blamed her friend for her paralysis.

Whether Torti is ultimately liable is still to be determined, but Van Horn’s lawsuit can go forward, the Supreme Court ruled.

Beverly Hills lawyer Robert Hutchinson, who represented Van Horn, said he’s pleased with the ruling.

Torti’s attorney, Ronald Kent, of Los Angeles didn’t immediately return a telephone call.

Military Will Be On Alert During Inauguration!

Military to be on high alert for inauguration

About 11,500 troops, including chemical attack experts, will join the security detail as Obama takes the oath of office.

Reporting from Washington — The U.S. military will be on high alert during Barack Obama’s inauguration, increasing air defenses and deploying chemical attack experts and medical units, a general said Wednesday.

Air Force Gen. Victor E. Renuart Jr., who heads the military command that oversees security for North America, said the Defense Department had not been told of specific Inauguration Day threats. Nonetheless, he said, the armed services must be ready.

“It would make news for a terrorist element or rogue element to interrupt that event,” Renuart said. “So it is prudent to plan for the possibility of that event and to deter it or to respond to it.”

This is a tragic story.  I am sorry to say but this kid needs to have plenty of jail time.  I understand the sister says the family has forgiven him and they want him home, but if we start going easy on one, then they will all expect it easy.

Daniel Petric killed mother, shot father because they took Halo 3 video game, prosecutors say

ELYRIA — Daniel Petric shot his parents — killing his mother — because they wouldn’t allow him to play the violent video game Halo 3, prosecutors told a judge at the boy’s murder trial Monday.

The trial, on charges of murder and attempted murder, opened Monday for Petric, 17, of Brighton Township. He is being tried without a jury before Lorain County Common Pleas Judge James Burge. (Update: The defense presents its case.)

Daniel Petric

Prosecutors are not seeking the death penalty because of Petric’s age. In their opening statements, prosecutors outlined this version of events surrounding the shooting:

In September 2007, Daniel, then 16, had sneaked out of his bedroom window to purchase the game at a store against his father’s orders. When he returned home, his parents caught him with the game and took it from him. His father, Mark, a minister at New Life Assembly of God in Wellington, put the game in a lock box in a closet where he also kept a 9mm handgun, according to prosecutors.

Nickelodeon is Planning What??

leave a comment »

I don’t care how many votes they had.  There will be plenty of coverage without having to take off the cartoons and making the children have one less channel to watch for a certain length of time on Jan. 20th 2009.

Why not just put the inauguration on every channel on the TV?

Kids network Nickelodeon planning its first ever inauguration coverage

NEW YORK – The Nickelodeon TV, the children’s network, is getting ready to cover its first presidential inauguration.

After an unprecedented 2.2 million people voted in Nick’s online election for kids, the network figured there was interest among its audience in Barack Obama’s inauguration. Its young reporters, J.J. and Lily Collins, will be in Washington for the Jan. 20 event.

The reporters will try to offer some historical perspective for its young viewers and will show clips of Obama’s first speech as president.

Good for this Supermarket!!! Stick to Your Guns!

Supermarket defends itself over Adolf Hitler cake

EASTON, Pa. (AP) – A supermarket is defending itself for refusing to a write out 3-year-old Adolf Hitler Campbell’s name on his birthday cake. Deborah Campbell, 25, of nearby Hunterdon County, N.J., said she phoned in her order last week to the Greenwich ShopRite. When she told the bakery department she wanted her son’s name spelled out, she was told to talk to a supervisor, who denied the request.Karen Meleta, a ShopRite spokeswoman, said the store denied similar requests from the Campbells the last two years, including a request for a swastika.

“We reserve the right not to print anything on the cake that we deem to be inappropriate,” Meleta said. “We considered this inappropriate.”

The Campbells ultimately got their cake decorated at a Wal-Mart in Pennsylvania, Deborah Campbell said Tuesday.

Wal-Mart spokeswoman Anna Taylor told The Easton Express-Times that the store won’t put anything illegal or profane on a cake but thinks it’s important to respect the views of customers and employees.

“Our No. 1 priority in decorating cakes is to serve the customer to the best of our ability,” Taylor said from Bentonville, Ark.

When reached by The Associated Press, Taylor said she’d call back to provide a comment.

Heath Campbell said he named his son after Adolf Hitler because he liked the name and because “no one else in the world would have that name.”

The Campbells’ two other children are named JoyceLynn Aryan Nation Campbell, who turns 2 in a few months, and Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie Campbell, who will be 1 in April.

Campbell said he was raised not to avoid people of other races but not to mix with them socially or romantically. But he said he would try to raise his children differently.

“Say he grows up and hangs out with black people. That’s fine, I don’t really care,” he said. “That’s his choice.”

He said about 12 people attended the birthday party on Sunday, including several children of mixed race.

Canadian Airports Becoming Breeding Ground for Terrorism?

leave a comment »

The Terror breeding ground is growing more and more.  We must continue to be more and more on watch, because they have began moving into sections of Mexico and the border, and now the canadian border.

Gangs Infiltrate Canada’s Airports – Provide Breeding Ground For International Terrorism

Organized gangs and smugglers are infiltrating Canada’s biggest airports, providing a breeding ground for international terrorism, critics say, citing information from a recently revealed federal police investigation.

A two-year probe by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police RCMP, the country’s national policing agency, shows that 58 organized gangs are smuggling drugs into the country’s airports, including Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver. Many of the gang members are airport employees, including baggage handlers and customs agents, who have used their security clearances to thwart the law.

The findings shatter widespread notions that airport security has been significantly bolstered since the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in 2001, according to some of Canada’s leading national security experts. It’s also angered lawmakers, who say previous warnings have gone unheeded.

“This report should certainly rattle Canadians and even those beyond our borders,” says Sen. Colin Kenny, who was appointed to lead the Canadian senate committee on national security and defense after the 9/11 attacks. “Where you see organized crime taking place, you have a fertile ground for terrorism.”

A 22-page declassified summary of the investigation was leaked to Canada’s Globe and Mail newspaper last week.

Although the RCMP’s report didn’t focus directly on terrorism, it warned that airports compromised by criminal activity could easily be exploited by sophisticated terror groups. “Staff can be bribed to ignore criminality or paid large sums to assist in drug trafficking or theft,” the RCMP report concludes.

The RCMP says a criminal record is no barrier to landing an airport job. The agency also says technological impediments and a lack of resources hampers federal officials from sharing employee information with police that would allow for better employee screening.

Pierre Perron, the RCMP’s director of criminal intelligence, says he hopes that the report will provide an impetus for agencies to work together more effectively. “Ultimately, we see this as a good news story,” he says. “It will allow us to find ways to close those gaps.”

Similar shortcomings were pinpointed six years ago in a report penned by Senator Kenny’s committee, which found that passenger inspection had been tightened but security remained “flimsy” behind the scenes. Most notably, ground crews were not being scrutinized with the same rigor applied to passengers. The RCMP report confirmed this, finding that fewer than 1 percent of employees assigned to high-security areas are screened either on their way in or out of the airport. Kenny says workers should be inspected just like passengers.

HOLLYWOOD, Fla. —  The investigation into the 1981 murder of Adam Walsh, the 6-year-old son of “America’s Most Wanted” anchor John Walsh, is finally closed.

Hollywood, Fla., Police Chief Chad Wagner announced Tuesday that the department had concluded that Ottis Toole, a serial killer who died in jail in 1996, was the man who kidnapped and decapitated the young boy.

The announcement brought to a close a case that had angered the Walsh family for more than two decades, inspired the television show about the nation’s most notorious criminals and triggered changes in how authorities search for missing children.

“Who could take a 6-year-old and murder and decapitate him? Who?” an emotional John Walsh said at Tuesday’s news conference. “We needed to know. We needed to know. And today we know.”
