But we do know things about religion and some of it's alleged secrets.

The angels which flanked the Tabernacle were decapitated and destroyed

Police are reviewing surveillance footage of the suspect:

All signs point toward a Satanist collecting supplies for dark rituals. Look for a missing priest to complete transubstantiation. This is just obvious, people.

It can be.  In this case, they're referring to the second sense

Definition of tabernacle

1:a house of worship specifically :a large building or tent used for evangelistic services
2:a receptacle for the consecrated elements of the Eucharist especially :an ornamental locked box used for reserving the Communion hosts

They're decommissioning churches all over the country.  There are warehouses all over the country filled with those things sitting there collecting dust.

Why steal this one?

Okay, so it is a magic cabinet.  Plated in gold.  Got it. 

Actually, given the value of the gold, and that church membership, and thus revenue is down, my suspicion is that the local priests cut it up into scrap, sent said scrap to another diocese across the country, like a pedo priest, where it will be sold without attracting suspicion from local investigators, with the profits split between everyone, and the tabernacle replaced with a less ornate cabinet, or a fancy one that is donated.

It's a thing. It doesn't have magica holy sacred powers so enough with that bullshiat. It doesn't garner sympathy from me. It only reminds me how much these people cherish their stupid shiat while simultaneously harbouring and protecting abusive priests.

Saw a different article on this earlier that listed the value of the stolen tabernacle at $2 million.  Why does a church even have something that's worth that much?  That seems like a vulgar display of wealth, and I think their savior might have a few pointed words to say about such a thing.

You should see some of these places of worship so decked out in gold and other expensive stuff it would make Trump blush. Maybe not, but I like to imagine that everyone has their limits.

Yeah, I'm sure the Creator of the Universe is terribly upset that some asshole stole some shiat from some other asshole.

Trump wouldn't blush at all. Hell, why do you think he courted the evangelicals ? Their laying on of hands was a test to see if they're worth his time. He knows getting in with the church would be a great side grift and it's tax free. It's just too bad that when he did that whole upside down bible/gas the protesters thing he didn't suffer the Nazi face-melt like in Raiders of the Lost Ark.

No that ostentatious extravagance is right up his alley.  Ever see the interior decor at any of his homes?  It's like he watched a bunch of "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous" episodes from the early 80's and told his decorator to make his house look like that.  Or more likely he just told his interior decorator to make his house look like a rich person's house and they just copied what they saw from said episodes.

Nah, they wouldn't scrap it.  They might've hidden it away, claimed stolen, get press & surge of donations, then it magically shows up as "someone anonymously dropped it off" and isn't it a miracle and a thief had a change of heart.  Or something.

/assuming a rando didn't take it for the gold or found it's part of some DaVinci puzzle
