He also has a history of threatening past Republican presidents. He needs to be put away before he hurts someone. Oddly enough, he is now a hero for many liberals.

He also made threats against President Obama.

If there were a mental institution that could take him in, that would be great. But any such institution would require payment, and this man's mental illness has interrupted his college education as well as his employment over the years.

Stone hearts require stone tablets. Others prefer true freedom:

"I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh."
(Ezekiel 36:26)

"I will put my law in their minds and write it on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people."
(Jeremiah 31:33)

Reminds me of the way ISIS is destroying all of the ancient temples in Iraq and Syria.

Destruction of things (and people) who disagree with them is typical of Islamic fundamentalists.

Same thing with liberal Democrats and, progressive Socialists in the USA by the way. If anyone doesn't agree with them, they feel free to abuse them verbally and even by physical attacks. It seems to becoming more and more dangerous to be in public these days.

My father always said "Keep your eyes and ears open and your mouth shut".

Yes. Southern states are very backwards in this regard. They consider this stunt to be a heinous crime to the nth degree, but devalue human life in many other ways through their laws.

Sad...... maybe it is time to revisit Southern independence if this is how liberal Americans see us. I am tired and out of tolerance for these kinds of people. When i see news stories like this one I don't think the kindest of thoughts towards these atheists, leftists and PC types. There are several posters in this thread supporting the vandals who carried this attack out. Left wingers are enemies of our people.

Oh for heavens sake: this has little if anything with southern states being backwards. I guess that must be the problems with Americans right? We are backwards. What are some of the fastest growing cities in the USA? I will give you a hint: they are in the south. What laws do we have in general that make you think we we devalue human life?

As for this crime, it is more than destruction of property which in itself is wrong, it is the guy history period. He appears to be as damaged mentally as the guy who tried to kill innocent elected officials 2 weeks ago.

The Jewish people don't believe the story. Building this monument to a fictional story is proof that evangelicals hate anyone who is different. It's just a way of putting up walls from the depth of their stone hearts. Their own "scriptures" even refute them and condemn their actions.

Those of us who truly believe "the story" don't hate anyone. "Love thy neighbor as thyself."

The stories are real, though. They are written by God through men for us to benefit ourselves. No one should hate anyone. We can hate their actions, but not them.
