There are concerns that the vandalism of churches in Canada has spread to the US, after four Oregon churches were vandalized over the past few weeks.
Reports suggest that the left-wing extremist group, Antifa, is targeting churches and spraying Antifa logos on Roman Catholic churches and in at least one instance tried to set a church on fire.
There was also a suspicious church fire on July 23, 2021 at a Baptist Church in Tacoma, Washington. The Baptist church was severely damaged.
In at least one instance, protestors stated that the vandalism of an Oregon church was in response to the discovery of unmarked graves at Indian Residential Schools in Canada, that were operated primarily by the Roman Catholic Church.
However, the others were believed to be the action of left-wing radicals trying to intimate Christians.
Over 53 churches have been vandalized in Canada since the discovery of unmarked graves at Indian Residential Schools. Several churches were completely burned to the ground.
The Canadian government set up residential schools across Canada in the late 1800s and approached Christian denominations to operate the schools.
However, many of the attacks in Canada reflect an anti-Christian hate, as several churches vandalized were not involved in the Indian Residential School program. READ: UPDATE: A map of the 53 churches that have been vandalized or burned since the residential schools announcement
This would not be the first time that left wing anarchists have taken advantage of things happening in Canada to commit acts of violence in America.
In November 2020, two left wing extremists were charged for allegedly trying to sabotage a rail line in Washington State that could potentially derail a train.
The two women were allegedly protesting the building of oil pipelines in Canada. According to Washington State’s justice department, there have been over 40 attempts to sabotage rail lines in the state.
