It was a horrible and evil act, but if the quote is accurate, I agree with Ft. Quinn. If the person is truly contrite for what he (or she) has done, I would forgive them, even though this was a painful act.

He painted the beard so neatly, looks better than before.

They should have him repaint the whole statue.

Jersey City man charged in desecration of religious statue near homeless shelter
Posted Sep 17, 12:53 PM (9/17/2019)
By Ron Zeitlinger | The Jersey Journal

A Jersey City man has been charged with vandalizing a statue of St. Jude near a Jersey City homeless shelter, Jersey City officials said.

Tyrell Harris, 32, was charged Monday with desecration of venerated objects, the same day it was found that the beard and part of a sleeve on the statue were painted red, Jersey City spokeswoman Kimberly Wallace-Scalcione said.

Fr. Quinn handled the situation very well and he addressed it appropriately at Mass.

Thanks Sutherland for posting and expressing outrage.

It had been a felony under the common law to desecrate a Christian symbol. Where these laws still exist, they havebeen extended to other religions as well. Desecration of Christian symbols, particularly Catholic sacred objects, is rapidly rising throughout the West. The almost total lack of response to this by the neighborhood or the larger community is informative (and even in France supression of the facts). There is a large shrine to Our Blessed Mother on the corner of Lafayette and Pacific Avenue. People in the parish view it as well neigh miraculous that it has never been touched during all the years when Lafayette was dangerous and drug riven. It survived poverty and crime but will it survive prosperity and hipsters?

I personally think this should be treated as a hate crime:
