More Vandalism At Buddhist Temple In Rochester

May 23, 2010

From The Associated Press

Police are asking whoever’s behind a string of vandalism incidents at a Cambodian Buddhist temple in Rochester to stop.

Investigators say the latest incident was Monday, when rocks, dirt and sand were put in the temple’s mailbox. Twenty solar-powered lights were also taken.

Members say the mailbox has been vandalized five times in the past month, and there have also been five attempted break-ins.

Vandalism at the temple a year ago included smashed lights, yanked flowers and a cross along with “Jesus saves” spray-painted on the driveway in orange.

Olmsted County Sheriff’s Sgt. Scott Behrns says the crimes are obviously motivated by bias.

Ed. Note: Maybe these folks forgot Mark 13:31 which states “Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. ” Or they forgot “The Parable of the Good Samaritan”
