Church and Marian statue targeted by vandalism in Southern France

Unknown vandals tagged the walls of the church of Saint-Martin-duTouch, the statue of the Virgin, and the war memorial with insulting writings.


On the wall of the bell tower, they wrote “fuck Jesus”, and on the Statue of the Virgin obscene writings and signatures were found. Jean-Jacques Bolzan, the neighborhood mayor and deputy mayor of Toulouse said this was a severe attack and commented: “with our CCTV cameras, I hope we can identify the authors of these tags. Of course, we will not stop there”.

A nearby resident believes the perpetrators “are surely kids from the neighborhood, but it is not very clear what message they want to convey”.
