A German Catholic church has been severely vandalised

The Catholic Church of St. Joseph in Schömberg experienced an extensive vandalistic attack on May 29th.


Paper towels were strewn all over the floor and one was used to snuff out the eternal light. The altar cloth was left soiled and crumpled, and evidence suggested that the altar was walked on.

The unknown intruder had also urinated in the baptismal font. 

Christoph Eck, a member of the parish council said: “I see this as a racist attack on our religious community. Urinating in a baptismal font is a serious offense. A disrespect and disregard for our Christian Catholic faith. It’s akin to desecrating graves or desecrating Jewish symbols in synagogue.”
