Sure, they were allowed to do it. But that doesn’t make it right.
It turns out that after Timothy McVeigh who was raised Catholic destroyed the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building, the Catholic church had the audacity to build a statue right across the street!
Yes, you read that right. McVeigh took the lives of 168 innocent people including 19 children when he bombed the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in 1995. Timothy McVeigh, a man raised as a Catholic his entire life and who, according to Wikipedia entry “throughout his childhood [was]… Roman Catholic and regularly attended daily Mass at Good Shepherd Church in Pendleton, New York”.
Also, too, his accomplice, Terry Nichols, was a born-again Christian.
So what did the Catholic Church decide to do? They built a VERY Catholic statue right across the street!!! Can you believe the insensitivity? They call the statue “And Jesus Wept”. What a slap in the face to those who lost friends and family in that heinous act of terrorism. I’m not saying that we should restrict the Constitutionally-protected freedom of religious expression or anything. But, honestly, did they have to rub the salt into the bitter wounds of these people like that?
It’s like some say, just because it’s allowed by the Constitution doesn’t mean you should do it.
I’m just sayin’…
