Crooks steal more than $20,000 from Church on Christmas

I can't even begin to express my disgust at such people.

Two grinches spoiled Christmas Day for a church, robbing the safe of more than $20,000 in donations for needy children, police said.
The pastor at St. Mel's Roman Catholic Church in Queens said he believed the two men knew where they were going when they broke in through the back door and stole between $20,000 and $30,000 after morning Mass. "It was done while the people were in the building," the Rev. Christopher J. Turczany said.
The safe was removed while church employees left area, he said. The crooks fled in a sport utility vehicle. No arrests had been made as of Monday evening.
