Yule New York Yule Holiday Display Vandalized! Police Declare It A Hate Crime! Part Of War On Christmas???

Posted by Job on December 12, 2007

Then again, according to this link and the text pasted (along with my commentary in italics) below, it was a PAGAN display. Then again, Christmas IS Yuletime or Yuletide you know. Which makes this display … oh never mind 🙂 http://www.wivb.com/global/story.asp?s=747915

Police in Olean are investigating the vandalism of a holiday display. Police say someone opposed to a Wiccan pentacle decided to express his or her opinion by running it down Monday night and then sped off into the night. Olean Mayor David Carucci says the vandalism happened around 10:15 last night. (Sooo … do mayors get involved in minor incidents of vandalism of private property often? Or only when witches are involved?)

“Someone has backed up over the curb and run over the pentacle,” Carucci told News 4. Carucci is quick to criticize the action, and is hopeful police will soon find the person responsible. (No problem there. Since we are not in Old Testament Israel, we have no right to take down the groves and high places. In other words, vandalism is a crime and a sin.) Police, meanwhile, are treating it as a hate crime. (NOW we have a problem!)

“We’re going to be treating this as a hate crime,” said Olean Police Chief Terry Schnell. “This has gone far too long, this is getting ridiculous.” (You mean the fact that of all these church shootings by people who stated animosity towards Christianity and Christians where people have actually been killed such as the one that happened a few days ago, not one of them have been declared hate crimes is ridiculous? No, wait, that wasn’t what you were talking about. You were speaking of the horrific violence inflicted upon a pagan display. Sorry. Good to know that you have your priorities in order and care about what is really important.)

The pentacle stood only a few feet away from a nativity scene that sparked a public debate about the separation of church and state. (Too easy. No comment.)

The owner of the pentacle, April Garlow, says as long as the nativity scene remains on public ground in front of Olean city hall, so too shall the symbol of her Wiccan faith. (And you know what? I agree 100%! I also agree with WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS ABOUT CHRISTIANS HAVING NO RELIGIOUS SYMBOLS OR GRAVEN IMAGES! IF CHRISTIANS WERE TO OBEY THE THIRD COMMANDMENT, DEUTERONOMY 5:8, WE WOULD NOT BE HAVING ANY OF THESE PROBLEMS! And modern Jews … no better. Remember the nonsense at the Seattle airport awhile back where a rabbi activist demanded that a menorah be placed beside the Christmas tree, claiming that “a symbol of their faith be represented”? The airport officials CORRECTLY DECIDED that if they were going to put Christian and Jewish symbols up then they would have to accommodate all of the DOZENS of faiths in the Seattle area, SO THEY HAD TO FORCE US TO OBEY OUR OWN BIBLE BY REMOVING OUR IMAGES! Now I understand that objects were given by God in the Old Testament to USE in worship of HIM. They were NEVER INTENDED to represent God OR our faith in Him. So I say that if Christians are going to hold onto the symbols of our false public cultural religion, let the witches have theirs.)

She’s disappointed, though, that an attempt to acknowledge different religious beliefs has apparently divided her community even further. “This is supposed to be the season of peace and goodwill towards men and I don’t see any of that,” said Garlow. (Probably because the “peace on earth goodwill towards men” was said by the angel to the shepherds when Jesus Christ was born, and that day was NOT in late December to begin with, but rather late September to early October. Late December is when you have always had your pagan solstices, Saturnalias, yuletides, etc. I have no problem with you celebrating your long existing observance during the time that it has always been held. I am just curious as to why we Christians cannot be content with the REAL HOLIDAYS that God gave us. And I say “real holiday” for a reason, for the word “holiday” means “holy day” and since God alone is holy, only God has the right and ability to choose, consecrate, and sanctify a day as “holy.” The observances given to us by God in the Bible are the only true holidays, all else are pretenders. Maybe it will take this pagan witch shoehorning in on the Santa Claus flying reindeer elves yule log mistletoe drunken lascivious office party racket to get Christians to see that. Or then again, maybe not. I will suggest this though: if God wanted us to observe the birth of His Son, He would have told us what day it was on in the Bible. Meanwhile, we do know exactly what days His death, resurrection, and ascension were on, as well as the day of Pentecost don’t we? Hmmm … )

Olean police say the person responsible for crashing into the pentacle drove away in a black Ford pickup, and they’re asking anyone with information to call them. The number for the Olean Police Department is 716-376-5678. (Personally I hope they catch him and he is fully prosecuted. Vandalism is a crime. But realize that this happened only because we have the very type of public symbolic religious displays that the Bible tells us not to have in the first place.)
