The person who does this type of thing is an angry, self-righteous, jerk. People who are secure in their beliefs don’t feel the need to destroy.

Vandals destroy crosses at Ohio campus pro-life display
A pro-life display on an Ohio college campus was vandalized as many as four times over a five-day time.
The Students for Life chapter at Miami University installed a “cemetery of innocents” display on campus on Nov. 12. Each of the crosses displayed represented 10 babies killed each day by abortion, according to the group’s Facebook page.
Miami University SFL President Ellie Wittman told Campus Reform that the vandalism included the knocking over of the post reading “Each cross represents 10 babies that die by abortion each day,” as well as the digging up and/or recycling of all of the crosses in the display.
Wittman said that Students for Life reported the three vandalism incidents to the university police.
The organization set up the display again, only for it to be taken down again on Nov. 15. Wittman told Campus Reform that “it looked like someone had walked right through it, kicking a couple dozen crosses over.”
The Students for Life president also cited the theft of a sign displaying information for a pro-life helpline, as well as a website for “post-abortive women.”
Wittman told Campus Reform that the Students for Life chapter met with Miami University of Ohio Dean of Students Kimberly Moore who offered to provide resources to the group to cover the stolen sign.
The SFL president said that she has never seen intolerance toward pro-life views reach this point at Miami University.
“This display has been vandalized every single year that I have been at Miami, and it is [a] direct attack on our First Amendment rights by our fellow students. Free speech, especially on a college campus, is a no-brainer and all students, regardless of viewpoint, should respect that,” she told Campus Reform.
