Round-Up: Headless Virgin Mary and More Unpleasantness

New, 6 comments

Let's parse through the outrage: The Santa Monica Daily Press is reporting that police are looking into an alleged hate crime following the beheading of a Virgin Mary statue at the St. Monica Catholic Church this past Sunday. "A priest found the 55-year-old marble statue, which stands on the corner of Seventh Street and California Avenue, decapitated around 5:45 a.m. on Sunday, spotting the head on the ground just a few feet away." In related news, the Los Angeles Times reports on a Venice resident who believes that a racist note (and one that was faked from the Venice Stakeholders Assn) was left on his car, while a reader concerned about swastikas on a Hollywood street sent in this link to this web. Group hug, everyone.
