Student apologizes for urinating on nativity scene

What he did: A student at a northeastern Pennsylvania Roman Catholic college has apologized for urinating on a public nativity scene. The student, 22, said Monday he "was being a drunken idiot" a day earlier when he urinated on the nativity scene in Wilkes-Barre's public square.

What the federalies did: He was charged with public drunkenness, indecent exposure, open lewdness and desecration of venerated objects. He said he plans to plead guilty at a Jan. 20 preliminary hearing.


So we have a young man expressing an opinion regarding Christmas. He's charged with public drunk, indecent exposure, and open lewdness.

Cool, but can we have closed lewdness?

The desecration of venerated objects is what has me perplexed. It takes a lot of gumption for white people to have such a law, what with their ongoing treatment of holy ground and objects from native cultures.

I also wonder if Tink Coats' grave is a venerated object. Someone could be in trouble.
