875 Christian Churches Vandalized in France Since 2018


On the heels of the burning of Paris’ famed Notre Dame Cathedral a report says that about 875 Christian churches have been vandalized by radicals in France since 2018.

Churches across France have been torched, spray-painted, had feces smeared on doors and walls, and had windows broken by radical secularists and Muslims, the Sun wrote.

“Recent incidents have included a fire in Saint-Sulpice church in Paris, human poo daubed on a wall in Notre-Dame-des-Enfacts in Nimes, and an organ vandalized at Saint-Denis basilica outside Paris,” the paper reported.

The paper added:

Figures released by French police showed that 875 of France’s 42,258 churches were vandalized last year.

A further 129 churches reported thefts from the premises.

The interior ministry said that 59 cemeteries were also vandalized.

While the figures are down on the previous year when there were 1,045 acts of vandalism and 109 thefts they are still at a “worrying level”, according to Le Figaro.

The report comes on the heels of the near total destruction of the Notre Dame Cathedral.

French authorities are not yet sure what caused the fire in Paris. But some are insisting it was just an accident caused by careless construction workers.
