20 incidents of vandalism at Mexico City’s cathedral
May 13, 2011
The destruction of a statue of Our Lady of Guadalupe on Easter Sunday is the latest of 20 incidents of vandalism at Mexico City’s historic cathedral, according to the Fides news agency. Desde la Fe, the weekly newspaper of the Archdiocese of Mexico City, attributed the continued attacks to the “lack of a legal system that ensures respect for religious freedom and the lack of political will to ensure the right of religious freedom of all Mexicans.”
