Community: Church burglars strike low blow

To the degenerate criminals of Oak Harbor:

How sick do you have to be to burglarize churches? Your reasons can’t be hunger or need for shelter, because any of those churches would have given you those things freely. It is obvious that you are disgustingly selfish, unbelievable lazy, and lack even a single thread of moral dignity. You are stealing from establishments that are built to help and inspire and you should be deeply ashamed of your actions.

The people of these churches are humble local citizens. They give of themselves and their money, which they actually earn, to support noble causes. You didn’t just steal some property from a pastor or a church. You stole the gifts and charity of an entire community. How can you live with yourself knowing what kind of person this makes you ? You must not respect yourself and you certainly do not have the respect of anyone else. If you have a shred of decency left, then return the money or items you stole, or turn yourself in. I’m sure that those you have hurt the most have already forgiven you, buy for my part, I am praying that you will be brought to justice.
