Clearwater windows bearing image of Virgin Mary broken

By MITCH STACY
Associated Press Writer

CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) -- Office building windows that thousands of visitors believed bore the 60-foot tall image of the Virgin Mary were discovered shattered Monday, possibly by vandals armed with a slingshot, police said.

The three top panes depicting what appeared to be the Virgin Mary's veiled head were destroyed, with just shards of glass remaining in the window frames. The damage was discovered Monday morning, and it likely was done overnight.

It's a sign from God, He doesn't want us to believe in Him.

Three small radio controlled planes crashed into the window panes. Sound familiar?

--==Update==--
Ball bearings from a slingshot were responsible for shattering the glass.

Unbelievable that it was possibly being considered as a "hate crime" (WTF is a "love crime" anyway?) The kid was just doing his debunking duty by freeing the deranged worshippers from their twisted delusion.  :heart:

> WTF is a "love crime" anyway?

I was wondering that myself.  I guess since we are throwing people in jail for consensual (sp?) crimes (smoking cannabis,  sex during daylight, etc), and calling them regular crimes, we need a new label to call the really bad crimes... things like breaking windows... hate crimes has a nice ring... yeah, that sounds good.  (He must have really hated those windows to break them!)  I suppose love crimes are things like rape and murder... crimes of passion, no? 

A twisted world we live in...  :frown:

If you are straight (sexually) and beat up another heterosexual, that is a "normal" crime, but if you beat up a homosexual; that is somehow worse and qualifies as a "hate" crime.

In my (disgustingly rational) mind, all assaults should be treated the same.

Postscript: how does that weak joke go about the guy that attacked the peanut? It was a salted...

I live right by that stupid fucking water stained glass. I am so fucking glad somebody finally did what's right. That thing was so god damn gay looking. What a fucking joke it was. I always yelled at the dumb fucks that stood out by that building. They put up a jesus statue right outside with a bunch of chairs and shit. They also had a fence around it. What a retarded world we live in.

No, no. It is impolitic to question the heart-felt beliefs of another no matter how fucking wacked-out they are. Respect, my brother, respect is where it's at.

The person who first noticed it looked like mother mary was probably on drugs at the time anyways.

What about the other 200,000 visitors? What was their excuse? How could they tell she was a virgin?

Actually, in order to convict someone of a hate crime, you have to prove a motive. So it is not a hate crime if a straight man beats up a gay man because he called him names. It is a hate crime if the straight man beats up the gay man for being gay.
