Sounds like religious intolerance to me. If this had happend at a mosque, the FBI/CIA, homeland security and every monkies uncle would be involved. This was religious hate directed at the Holy Roman Catholic Church, this needs investigated and classified as such.

Mary had a little sheep,
And with this sheep
She went to sleep.
The sheep turned out
To be a ram
And Mary had a little lamb!

Progressives and Liberals only classify actions as "hate" when they involve Muslims, Gays or "protected" classes.

I agree. But in this country it is ok to attack all variants of christians, but not the of monkeys and arabs, Islam.

Amen! Very true! And these days, it seems like the only class of people that is not protected are the Christians, who, by the way, are still in the majority.

I'm sure the video will show it was Satan himself that bought the lamb heads from Jungle Jim's.

religious intolerance stems from the intolerance of the religious about pretty mcuh everything that isnt what they believe,
it is scary to some people how unlike god christians really are.

seriously
they hate gays
they hate atheist
they hate scientists
they hate other religions
they hate non believers and spend their every last amount of energy trying to convert people

then have the audacity to blame others on their own misgivings.

i am no longer religious and im that way for a reason.

Actually, religion is a protected category insofar as hate crime is concerned.

And Islam, in particular, is a protected category insofar as anything is concerned --- even the safety of U.S. soldiers and citizens. Ask Nidal Hasan.

Republicrat -

Ah yes "tolerance" and ignorance combined - you are a real prize !

To which "god" are you comparing Christians ?

Secular humanism, eco-socialism, Gaia Worship, Marxism, etc are ALL systems of belief => religions !

Hate is very toxic and I avoid it. You an the other hand are a bigot - entrenched in your ignorance and predisposed to judge others based on that incomplete knowledge.
My pointing out the obvious holes in your emoting does NOT constitute "hate," just rational observation based on decades on dealing with attitudes like yours.

Don't know how it is today because so much has changed in the Roman Catholic Church but old school and the old countries that go by the Roman law feel the lamb and the goat is sacred maybe somebody is trying to get back at a special someone that is Catholic and they know of these 2 animals being special . Today I don't put nothing pass someone that has cruel,vengeful thoughts toward another they go to the end to get even !

"Satanic ritual"??? Guys, it's not the eighties anymore. We don't arrest people for playing D&D and listening to heavy metal anymore. Your ignorance is as glaring as your prejudice.

The lamb is associated with CHRISTIANITY. Read through the Bible, especially the New Testament, and see how many references you see to lambs. "Lamb of God," "Blood of the Lamb," all those references to shepherds and flocks. The lamb can be a symbol of Christ, or a symbol of the Christian faithful themselves. If it's meant to represent Christ, it's probably a radical Christian, possibly from another church or denomination or a parish member who's unhappy with something going on in that church, and it's supposed to be a terrifying warning, like a Johnny Cash song warning "God's gonna cut you down."

If it's meant to represent the church members themselves, that's more of a problem. It could easily be interpreted as a threat, like "it's time to slaughter the lambs," and as such, should be treated as a hate crime.

Cinci P.D. investigators obviously need an update on religions other than Islam.

As a young man growing up in As-Suwayda, Syria we would send goat head as gift to neighbors. I would be overjoy to get 3 goat head in one week. I still remember my mother cooking spiced goat head for a good breakfast treat. Church should contact any Syrian grandmother to make feast. Salaam Alaikum
