The one hate crime that doesn't seem to be a hoax.

Living in Massachusetts I wasn't shocked by the vandalism in Brighton, young people in the secular world are taught to despise and mock Catholicism.

Their immaturity in their vandalism shows more ignorance then hate. It seemed more out of boredom their destructiveness. But where are they learning such ignorance, to the point they feel nothing destroying an oil painting and and a church organ?

How as a community as a whole, did we fail them?

If that bored do something constructive, like help out with the poor. And if that isn't your niche, why no volunteer at an animal shelter. Once the cages are clean, they let the volunteers play with the cats and dogs.
