2nd French basilica defaced by graffiti

Catholic World News - March 21, 2014

Vandals defaced the walls of the Basilica of St. Sernin in Toulouse with graffiti, according to a local newspaper report.

The incident took place on March 17, two days before similar vandalism at Sacré-Cœur Basilica in Paris.

Among the graffiti at the Basilica of St. Sernin, which was consecrated in 1180, was a vulgar anti-Catholic statement written in English.
