Given that this is a catholic church, that could very well be candlesticks, ect.

P.R. for this church isn't great.
The whole congregation's irate.
They're sure sympathetic,
Though not energetic
About putting change in the plate.

Safes don't do you any good if they aren't bolted down.

FTFA: A parishioner of St. Anne's Catholic Church near North Vernon found Monday morning that someone had broken in and taken the safe estimated to weigh more than 700 pounds.

Carting off that much weight is no easy trick. Sounds like someone got tired of tithing.

Why would a parishioner be at the church on a Monday morning?

The ultimate lesson from the viking age: pillage the churches. There's always loot, and the toughest guard you'll face is an irate alterboy. Though some of those nuns can be pretty scary...

Works night shift? I was under the impression that large catholic churches always had someone in them doing something. Too much TV and movies I suppose.

You'll find that one of the priests sold the safe or some such.

Here in Buffalo, the Piarist fathers owned a Frank Lloyd Wright house (Graycliff). One of the priests was selling the original furniture.

What a 700+ pound safe looks like. 50x25x29

For comparison, a 70x36x36 fridge (new window) weighs about 300 lbs.

2009-12-30 12:11:26 PM
Actually, at 700lbs it could have been a small, very well built one, or a large piece of shiat "residential security container". And fireproofing can add to the weight.

I'm betting it was much smaller than this one since it was probably old. I would guess more like a 35" cube.

Dibs on any gaming stuff and electronics. The food pantry around my city is running dangerously low. I could resell his stuff and buy food for everyone.

Or you could do as these guys are going to do; sell off 170 years of history to buy meth supplies.

Headso gives that the Heads Up!

A similar case here in Atlanta. Wealthy church's safe sprung legs with about $50K worth of offerings. Nice work if ya can get it.

BTW, the parishoner probably was the one responsible for making the deposit.

CrankMyBlueSax: Is stealing from a thief a crime?

You'd better hope so, because you just stole several IQ points from everyone looking at this thread.
 
2009-12-30 01:31:16 PM
The 170 year old golden chalices in the safe are probably worth 100 times their weight in gold. But it is probably their weight in gold the thieves were after. They will melt them down to avoid detection.

Unless they are stupid. Which is always a distinct possibility with thieves.

That is the sad thing about theft that really annoys me. A theif will do thousands of dollars of damage so that they can make a hundred bucks. I would not mind so much if they got as much as they cost me. That way at least there would be no waste.

But the waste caused by crime just really gets to me for some reason.

For a 700lb safe? Must have been anemic women.

This is obviously a church full of hypocrites, there is no reason a true christian would have that much wealth on hand, it should be out in the community.
 
2009-12-30 01:44:37 PM
This is clearly all part of God's Grand Plan for us all. It is too bad the church cannot see this. Clearly more prayer meetings and scripture readings are in order to bring the minds of the priests and parishioners to a union with God's Will.
 
2009-12-30 01:48:33 PM
Cash For Gold is still giving an extra twenty percent bonus. The thieves just have to wait for a secure box to arrive because they can't fit chalices in the envelope.
 
2009-12-30 02:21:04 PM
A priest says the safe stolen from a southern Indiana church held golden chalices that date to its founding nearly 170 years ago.

I was merely saying that a the thieves would probably do more for the community with the gold than the church. My comment had nothing to do with the concept of ownership. Don't feel bad though, another poster didn't get it either and acted like twice the douche you did.

Hey, Champ, did you have some mistaken idea that your idea of wit was somehow farking complicated? We get it, we are on Fark: All Churches every where are bad, all the time. A bunch of thieving crack heads are better than St Anne's Catholic Church.

Very clever and witty Headso!

Well done, thanks for posting the same old bullshiat we see every day around here.

Have a Blessed day!

Back when I was a kid and my mom was still futilely trying to make me religious, I remember seeing a safe in plain view in the church we went to. I never saw it opened, and I figured it contained some mysterious artifact that would change the world if word got out.

I wish real life was that interesting.

The concept is private property and you definitely don't get it.
