Stolen yard sign shows lack of respect for others

Last Sunday, I gave a friend of mine a yard sign supporting Amendment One. The next day, the yard sign had been stolen from his house. I wish I could say I was surprised, but I am not. I am, however, disappointed by the person who chose to steal it.

Chapel Hill and the University take pride in being bastions of tolerance, where people are welcome to express their beliefs freely. Apparently, that tolerance only extends to people of like minds, leaving little room for dissenting opinion.

I reported the theft to the police. However, if the perpetrator returns the sign, I will gladly withdraw the charge. I know this is a contentious issue, but there is no excuse for such an immature and intolerant act.
