Nativity Scene Theft Investigated as Hate Crime

"The theft of one of the three kings from a New York nativity scene appears to be a hate crime. The missing king is Balthasar, an African.  The statue was replaced by a white sheet hanging from a pole, possibly a symbol of the Ku Klux Klan, police said. The nativity scene was outside a Lutheran church in Holbrook on the east end of Long Island." Story. . . [Mark Godsey]
