A church has been vandalised and Bibles desecrated in Germany
Unknown perpetrators vandalized the Catholic Church of the Good Hirte, using a marker pen to write words and sayings on the pillars and walls inside the church. They further desecrated a Bible, which was open for reading, and a fresco in a side niche.
Pastor Gerd Möller said that “the fresco, in particular, will not be easy to restore”. According to the Pastor, the attack took place during the morning on August 4 and the damage caused amounts to 10,000 euros.
He further added that “the immaterial damage cannot be estimated. A church is a place of encounter with God and prayer. These places are of inestimable value for people who practice their religion”.
