Anti-Catholic Hate Crime at LSU

Anti-Catholic Hate Crime at LSU

Fr. Sibley alerts us to this story coming out of Louisiana State University of vandalism of a student pro-life display and the lack of response by the university. It is not the only instance of this type of crime. Here are the details: On Monday night, five vandals removed a large number of the 4,000 crosses placed by a pro-life student group. We know it was five because a police officer witnessed the whole thing and did nothing! Now, under state law causing damage to property based on religious beliefs is a hate crime.

You know what I think about the concept of “hate crimes;” I think it’s stupid liberalism seeking to prosecute based on what someone thinks rather than what they do. However, if you’re going to have the law it should be applied equally, (just as the sexual harassment laws were used against Bill Clinton).

I said this was not an isolated case and it isn’t: It’s happened at Oregon State University, in Northern California, in Pennsylvania, and more. Those are just the first three that came up in Google News. But apart from local newspapers, where have you heard about it? Nowhere. If abortion clinics were being defaced across the country, it would be on all the news broadcasts and in the all the newspapers. But pro-lifers being intimidated? Nothing.

  • It’s stunning how some people can only view the world through their own peculiar focus. For Andrew Sullivan, everything is about homosexuality. Evidently, for Ono Ekeh it’s all about being Black. I’m still trying to figure what I said above that’s racist.

    By the way, Ono Ekeh is the guy that Deal Hudson got fired from the bishops’ conference because he was also shilling for the Democrats, if I remember correctly.

  • Yeah, I’d heard about his firing.  From what I’ve read over at his blog, it is no surprise.  Now he’s trying to make the case, on his blog, of angels being divine, and that we do worship Mary, and not just that we honor and venerate her, but the same as we worship God.  Oh, and of course, liberals like Ono, all seem to think everything President Bush does is evil, evil, evil.  I try, but it really does seem pointless to try debating issues with this type of individual.  Kind of like bashing one’s own head against a brick wall.

  • The thing about Ekeh’s point that is so utterly brainless, clueless, idiotic, etc., is that there’s nothing but a linguistic parallel between what the CCC says about the term “racism” and Dom says about “hate crimes.” And the actual point being made by both men—that language is used and manipulated for political ends—is an utterly banal truism, and ironically an unquestionable postulate among the left’s chi-chi academic buds. Does Ekeh realize how laugh-out-of-the-room clueless he sounds in claiming that the argument “language is politically manipulated” is somehow racist?
