|Those damn Tea Partiers stole my … wait, what?|
Last week we reported on a pastor who had his $2,400 laptop stolen by the very Occupiers who he had provided shelter. Seems the pastor still hasn’t learned his lesson – that he is clearly part of the 1%.
Via the New York Post:
There’s no longer room at the inn at a Manhattan church that’s sheltering Occupy Wall Streeters after a holy vessel disappeared from the altar last week.
… Rev. Brashear walked into the church for a morning service to find the 18-inch-diameter bronze basin and lid missing from the baptismal font’s 800-pound base. Holy water — straight from the River Jordan — had been poured from the missing basin insert into the base’s bowl.
He told the occupiers that even when the 100-year-old Upper West Side church extended help to addicts during the 1980s drug scourge, no visitors touched its $12,500 sacramental instrument.
The pastor at the church, the Rev. Bob Brashear, still doesn’t get it. He rightly called out the jackals, but dressed it in OWS lingo. “It was like pissing on the 99 percent.” The Post called it a “fire and brimstone message” from Brashear.
Here is my message to Brashear: You should be preaching to the 100 percent.
That would be the percentage that still believes vandalism, theft, and urination are still unacceptable forms of protest. Normal people in other words.
Why did I bring urination into the mix? Ruberry reports on another incident at a separate church:
Down in Brooklyn, the Post is also ecumenically reporting that a rabbi has washed his hands of the Occupy movement after he learned that an OWS protester urinated inside a Brooklyn Presbyterian church. “The Park Slope church housing occupiers was desecrated when an occupier peed inside the building and the pee came into contact with a cross,” the rabbi bemoaned in a letter.
But hey, they’re just like the Tea Party…
