Spanish vandals desecrate church
April 19, 2011
A group of vandals broke into a Catholic church in Ciempozuelos, Spain, and ransacked the building, destroying the tabernacle and a statue of the Virgin Mary and scattering vestments and sacred vessels around the sacristy.
Police say the same culprits later robbed nearby stores, netting only a few hundred dollars.

'Fraid they know more than you think, Mike. Look at the string of church desecrations in California and elsewhere throughout the world. Google it if you don't believe me. The theft of money is a ruse. this also begs the question of why churches are left unattended long enough to account for this kind of damage.

Father, forgive them, for (we hope) they know not what they do.
