Did they forget "thou shalt not steal" ?

Apparently, they did.

Did who forget that? How do you know who stole it? Maybe it was someone that was against the public display of the name Jesus.

Don't kid yourself or make excuses. Common sense can tell us what type of person stole it. The end justifies the means for many fundamentalists - just ask the ones who bomb abortion cliinics, or block access to them. Lovely behavior from Christians.

They have decided that only they know the 'truth' and are trying hard to eliminate all other opinions.

another tactic to turn people away from thinking too much, it may lead to reality...can't have the truth posted in public, only lies!

Simple.

1) the banner did not belong to them.

2) they removed it from where the legal owner had lawfully placed it without the consent of the owner.

1+2=theft

See, that's stealing, their reason for doing it is a non-issue.

Nobody is denying that it was wrong to steal. I want to know how you can know for sure who stole it?
