Criminal acts against the church this week

Each week Texas Gospel Canada reports on acts of aggregation against church congregations in North America. All the reported acts this week come from the US.  It’s important to note that this is only a sample of crimes reported to local law agencies and is not intended to be an comprehensive account.

Vandals have struck the same church twice this week in Fort Worth, Texas church. Police say the building of St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic Church received unspecified damaged on Sunday.  The criminals returned later and stole a statue from St. Thomas. The beheaded statue was found abandoned a nearby school.

A security camera caught images of a man breaking various statues at St. Pius X Catholic Church in El Paso, Tx. Video shows the man attempted to shatter windows by throwing a bottle at them. He destroyed the statues when he failed to break the windows. Police in El Paso say vandals have made recent attacks at St. Patrick Cathedral, The Abundant Living Faith Center and Destiny Family Christian Center.

Police in Central City, Kentucky say someone tore bricks out of a walkway and used them to break windows at the First Presbyterian Church.  A concrete fixture was also destroyed.

The St. Landry Parish Sheriff’s Office in Louisiana is working to find the person or persons responsible for ripping off a door at the Macedonia Baptist Church in Eunice.  Local media in Eunice report the criminals also left obscene graffiti in the church building.
