The Charleston, SC man was arrested after he confessed to beheading the statue in front of a church.

This was the second decapitation of a statue of Christ at the church in less than a week. Sometime late Thursday night or early Friday morning, someone hammered off the heads and “some hands” of a statue of Christ and a child.

Around 5:45 a.m. on Sunday morning, alert parishioners noticed that the head had been removed from another statue on the grounds and immediately contacted police. When they arrived, they found Charles Jeffrey Short walking away from the scene…

The officer arrested Short and attempted to explain to him that he had the right to remain silent, but Short insisted on explaining why he had desecrated the statues.

According to the police report, Short claimed he had decapitated the Christ statues because “the Second or First Commandment forbids making an image of a male or female to be on display in public.”

    It’s okay, if he apologizes God will forgive him. Good thing he didn’t do that to a statue of
    Mohammed, he doesn’t forgive and his followers would exact revenge.

      Truth is always inverse to your posts e.g. In 1997, the Council on American-Islamic Relations demanded that part of a 1930s frieze in the main chamber of the U.S. Supreme Court building in Washington, D.C. be sandblasted into oblivion, on the grounds that Islam prohibits representations of its prophet.

      “Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor”-Bob Wass’ inability to tell the truth proves why most US criminals & murderers are practising Christians.

            Thank you for pointing out sinful behavior. Does it make you feel good when people you don’t like do bad things? Do you think that bad behavior by .011% of a profession is a dangerous trend?

            There is spiritual warfare going on for our souls and when people walk in the flesh rather than the spirit they fall into sin. No one is exempt.

          • Obewon June 19th, 2014 at 6:00 pm

            “bad behavior by .011%”-Wass posts Another airhead statement ignorant of the Catholic church admitting at least 7% of priests were child molesters.

            Every birther Bob post proves he’s a hellbound pathological liar!

          • Bob Waas June 19th, 2014 at 6:07 pm

          • Obewon June 19th, 2014 at 11:50 pm

            Again there isn’t a single thing you’ve posted that is accurate or true e.g. Limbaugh & his 4th wife: 57% of men who admit to committing infidelity in any relationship they’ve had.

            54% of women who admit to committing infidelity in any relationship they’ve had.

            41% of marriages where one or both spouses admit to infidelity, either physical or emotional.

          • Bob Waas June 20th, 2014 at 6:55 am

            Clinton’s foray in the Oval office was what? Tea with an intern?

            Edwards love child? Was that by artificial insemination?

            Kennedy? Do you really think he was just being a nice guy when he gave her a ride home and half way there decided to drown her?

            You’re very gullible and more so, naive.

            Btw, you pointing to other bad behavior doesn’t excuse bad behavior by those whom you apparently worship. Also, if all those people are cheating, as you claim, then you must find a new set of friends because the circles I travel in doesn’t exhibit moral lows such as those described.
