    I don't think he'll be getting a burial plot at that church!

    Stealing from a church is not a taboo unless one is raised to respect things holy. He just saw an empty building and opportunity.

    This kid is less of a threat than those who break into people's homes. this might get him involved with religion and change his life.

    I wonder if he attended that church and knew about the goodies.

    Is this the church that was making all the loud noise from the Bass?

    That would be ironic and hilarious if he stole all of their sound equipment.
