I am not into statues of Jesus, but still the destruction of a statue of Christ at a New York City church does send a message of the radical attacks taking place against American culture.
The burning of the American flag along with the destruction of the statue suggests it was done by left-wing anarchists.
The Blaze writes:
A statue depicting Jesus Christ was toppled and an American flag burned outside a Catholic church in Brooklyn, prompting the New York City Police Department to launch a hate crime investigation.
The New York Post reported:
“The incident occurred around 10 p.m. Thursday when an unknown person hopped the fence at St. Athanasius Church on Bay Parkway at 61st Street in Bensonhurst, police said. The vandal pushed over a statue of Jesus’s crucifixion, breaking it into pieces, and torched an American flag hanging outside the rectory, according to cops.”
“This was truly an act of hatred, and today is the saddest day of my twenty years here at this parish,” Cassato said in a statement obtained by the Post.
And it may be more serious than we realize. In an interview with Fox News, Elizabeth Rogliani, from Venezuela explained that the Marxist overthrow in her country started with attacks on religious statues:
“Founding Fathers are going to be attacked. Religious symbols are going to be attacked. And next, probably, museums.” she predicted. “I mean, anything can be attacked if you just let it happen. If you just let the first ones come down, then [there are] no limits to what’s next.”
We had a similar thing happen in Canada after vandals beheaded 8 religious statues in Sudbury, Ontario. READ: Updated: GSPS investigation into religious statue beheadings comes to a stand-still
