Another targeted Church. A Churhc in Everett was vandalised a few days ago. Whether it's vandalism or theft, it seems like Churches are being targeted these days. All the more reason for towns to have task forces to deal with these issues. I think Churches are a handy target for those who hate Christianity or wo want to steal what valuables may be found in them.

Dale, if a Nazi Swastika had been spray-painted on a synagogue in Gardner, everyone would have been calling it a hate crime. But since it was "only" Christian churches that were singled out the response was a collective yawn. It is great that the GPD did its job and found the culprits. But the whole matter was, in my opinion, taken very lightly.

The Evil One is really moving against the Churches. Let's all take this to Adoration.
