Juxtaposed against an article about Kristallnacht 75 years ago.

I wonder when Al Sharpton, barack Obama, harry reid, nancy Pelosi will come out and march against hate towards people of religious faith?

Or maybe they're just not open minded enough to accept that people have faith in a deity over mans intellect.

I agree with ranch this type of behavior is "Disgusting" and inexcusable.

@liberal ted

Why feed the fire of us against them? all you do is add fire to the flames of the type of people that would behave this way. be a part of the solution instead of a part of the problem.

All four of them are Christians...

atl134, Regardless of the wording Liberal Ted uses, it speaks volumes about the "character" of the people he mentions, knowing were this done at an NAACP center we'd be hearing from them. And yet when its against a group that's mainly white and conservative? Silence.

Clean it up. Look for the perps. Move on.

Liberal Ted,
Perhaps they are just letting the US Dept.
of Justice handle it.
You know, Mormon hate crime and all.....

I haven't seen Mormon leaders speaking out against racially-motivated hate crimes. Why do you expect the reverse?

Are you suggesting that Mormon leaders are not against racially-motivated hate crimes? As for the people mentioned like Jackson, Sharpton, ect. They have made it their business to be out speaking publically when these things happen. So if they truly cared about all hate crimes, then they should at least do a press release or something.

@happy2behere

way to read in things never said. They stated the church does not make public statements every time there is a racially motivated hate crime just as the people listed above do not make such statements every time there is a religious or for that matter racially motivated hate crime. If the church or the people listed above made public proclamations every time an incident happened that would be all they had time for. while a disgusting display, no one died no one got physically harmed, not really on the same scale as some past events.

I would also add that this crime is being investigated as a possible hate crime which many of the incidents that people normally speak out against have not been. again don't get me wrong this is a horrible and inexcusable crime but your comments do noting but add to the flames. .

Nope, I'm leaving the "suggesting" to folks like Chris and Ted.

I'm just pointing out the obvious logical contradiction in their claims. They expect black leaders to speak out against anti-Mormon vandalism, but they apparently don't expect Mormon leaders to speak out against anti-black crimes.

"So if they truly cared about all hate crimes, then they should at least do a press release or something."

Yeah, get back to me the next time one of the Mormon church leaders speaks out against a racially-motivated hate crime.

This happens a lot, we do what we normally do. Clean it up and life moves on - the law enforcement will take care of it as best they can. Those who came before us faced far worse this - we don't cry about stuff like this... just put your should to the wheel and push no matter how little the wheel turns that's all that matters

Contrariuser -

Mormon leaders don't speak out against racially motivated acts of pain and anger?

You should watch sessions of LDS General Conference. If you did, you'd know how silly your comment is.

You're welcome....

Three LDS buildings are vandalized in a single night in Idaho.

And yet, some liberals will claim that there is absolutely no persecution against Christians.

Riiiiight......

Hold on, my brothers and sisters, it's gonna get worse before it gets better.

@Contrariuser

Of course Mormon leaders do not condone similar hate crimes no matter what the circumstance.

"Of course Mormon leaders do not condone similar hate crimes no matter what the circumstance."

And of course I never said that they did.

Do you believe that civil rights leaders condone hate crimes against Mormons?
