Strawn Update

It seems Mr. Strawn, the Kings College student who urinated on the Public Square Nativity Scene has publicly apologized.

I did come down rather strong on him, but I have no sympathy for drunken exhibitions. Hopefully our prayers will help him oust his personal demons.

I found this article from multiple locations on the web:

WILKES-BARRE, Pa. -- A student at a Roman Catholic college has apologized for urinating on a public nativity scene.

Twenty-two-year-old Nathan Strawn said Monday he "was being a drunken idiot" a day earlier when he urinated on the nativity scene in Wilkes-Barre's public square.

Strawn is charged with public drunkenness, indecent exposure, open lewdness and desecration of venerated objects. He says he plans to plead guilty at a Jan. 20 preliminary hearing.

Strawn met with officials King's College in Wilkes-Barre on Monday. A school spokesman says Strawn faces punishment ranging from a warning to expulsion.

Strawn has vowed to quit drinking.
