#OWSers Steal Holy Vessel, Defile Cross

Holy vessel disappears from church housing Occupy Wall Street protesters

I'm not hugely religious, but it's my belief that if somebody invites you into their house, you don't piss on the furniture and steal the silverware and plates:
When the Rev. Bob Brashear prepared for Sunday services at West Park Presbyterian Church on West 86th Street, he noticed parts of the bronze baptismal font were gone. In a fire-and-brimstone message to occupiers later that day, he thundered, “It was like pissing on the 99 percent.”

In Brooklyn, at another church housing OWS protesters, an occupier urinated on a cross, according to Rabbi Chaim Gruber, who has angrily abandoned the OWS movement. In a letter last week to OWS obtained by The Post, the rabbi fumed, “The Park Slope church housing occupiers was desecrated when an occupier peed inside the building and the pee came into contact with a cross.”
But if I were in the congregation of one of the affected churches, I'd hold the minister responsible for the inviting the OWS crowd in.
