That’s what one reporter in New York City asked rhetorically on Twitter while sharing a peculiar video: a thief making the Sign of the Cross before smashing the door of a clothing store and robbing it.
In the video (which you can view at the end of this article), you see the man approach the door of the store, take off his hat, and make of the Sign of the Cross twice. He then smashes the glass door with a brick, grabs an armful of clothes, and runs away.
Stealing is forbidden by the 7th commandment (“You shall not steal”). An important nuance to this teaching, however, is that it’s not really stealing if someone is taking something that they truly need for survival (cf. ST II-II.66.7). However, it’s not clear this applies in this case.
