 Escaping Vietnam because he was jailed there for being a Catholic.  Communists are always persecuting Christians all over the globe, not unlike their Islamic counterpart.  Mr. Pham left Vietnam some 40 years ago, he moved to the U.S., Minnesota to be exact, where he would be free to worship the Lord and practice his art.  Here he is, in America, land of the free and yet, once again he is being persecuted because of his faith.  What a fine country America has turned out to be!  Americans are being forced to tolerate the intolerable, and the intolerable refuse to tolerate.  It appears that only Muslims are allowed to carry out their rituals in peace.  Atheists are allowed to make demands that Christians hide their faith.  The Gays are demanding the demise of the Christian family unit.  Double standards in America? Oh yes, there certainly are!!!

  Mr Pham, has his statues on his own property, they are extensions of himself of his faith, and his own works of art.  He has many statues in what he refers to as his "Prayer Garden".  The prayer garden is where Mr. Pham goes to pray and to contemplate, it's an external place of peace where he finds his internal peace as he walks with the Lord, in solitude disturbing no one.
  Who would find this private place so offensive that they would actually attempt to set this particular statue of Jesus on fire?  An Atheist, a Muslim, a Buddhist, a teenage prankster perhaps, who has never been taught to respect another man's property or Faith?  My guess, the perpetrator doesn't even know Mr. Pham.  No doubt the arsonist is a complete idiot, as he obviously didn't know that one can't burn marble.  Was this person just sending a message to this Christian, maybe all Christians, that Christianity will no longer be tolerated by this new Godless society?  Prophesy in the process of fulfillment perhaps? 
  Is this the end of intolerance, or just the beginning?  How long will it be before Christians and Jews will not be tolerated at all?  Will we have to worship our Lord in secrecy, will we be hunted down as in the ancient days?  I see this in our future, I truly do.  Unless Christians and Jews take a stand mightily against these forces of evil, and soon.  Trust me the persecutions will begin, and it won't be limited to the occasional burning of a religious statue.  Need I say more???
God help us!
