Another Catholic Church Vandalized, Ignored By Mainstream Media

The St. Francois Xavier Roman Catholic Church just outside Winnipeg was vandalized over the weekend — with very little media coverage, despite the fact that the vandals remain on the loose.

“Suspects gained entry to church, smashed statues & used fire extinguisher inside the church. A vehicle was seen in the church parking lot at 1:00am,” the RCMP reports.

It was the second act of vandalism at a church in the Winnipeg area in less than a week.

Police are asking anyone who may have seen anything to contact the local detachment (204) 888-0358, call Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477, or submit a secure tip online.

Last week, “the head of a statue at the Sts. Vladimir and Olga Cathedral on McGregor Street was removed,” Global News reports. “The missing piece was later found in a duffel bag and returned to the church.”

A Catholic Church in Pennsylvania was also vandalized with pro-abortion graffiti last weekend.

The vandals had painted, “You do not have the right to decide how others live,” on the front door of the church and “#ProChoice” on the side of the building.

The Catholic News Agency notes that an incident in which a man threw a statue of Mary into the trash and damaged the statue at a Brooklyn parish was investigated as a hate crime by authorities in February.

It’s hard to imagine that these crimes would be so overlooked if any other faith had been the target.
