A reader sent me a link to a video of pro-life display vandalism at Michelle Malkin’s site.
It has happened again. In January 2006, pro-abortion thugs destroyed a pro-life memorial of wooden crosses at Louisiana State University. In April 2006, a nutball feminist professor at Northern Kentucky University led another destructive raid on a pro-life Cemetery of Innocents. And this week, at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, pro-abortion vandals struck–pulling up hundreds of crosses from a display sponsored by Pointers for Life. College Republican Ryan Wrasse sent me a video of one of the pro-abortion thugs gone wild– a student government senator named Roderick King:
. Jill Stanek is also covering the story and has plenty of info.
The display was rows of crosses called the Cemetery of the Innocents to commemorate babies killed by abortion.
Unbelievably, even after a university security guard showed up and told King to stop, he didn’t, and the wimpy campus cop just let him continue ripping up crosses. King’s illogical excuse was, "If there is a student on this campus that has had an abortion or that might be having an abortion, might be going through this, you want this up in front of them? Are you crazy?"
Well maybe the Security Guard thought he heard the guy name was Rodney King vice Roderick King. Seriously thought there is a large trend in vandalizing pro-life displays especially when they are rows of crosses. In my own diocese where they display multi rows of crosses once a year in front of the Mission of Nombre de Dios and Shrine of Our Lady of La Leche this has also happened.
You have to wonder what leads to this type of rage in the first place. It this some kind of rage of denial where some are outraged to see a symbolic representation of the reality of what abortion means. I also wonder if just using the representation of the cross in the first place adds to this anger? But a culture that supports killing the innocent is a violent culture in the first place so it isn’t exactly a shock that someone who supports violence against the unborn will also react violently if reminded of this. They mostly play semantic games with words such as choice, tissue mass, product of conception, etc so they are not forced to confront their own views to their logical conclusion. Rows of crosses in memorial of the innocents surely jolts them and some become unhinged.
Let’s is pray for Mr. King.
