Saint Statues and Crosses Destroyed in Bamburg Churches

The Archdiocese of Bamberg speaks to about the "rash of violence" and says: "We can currently confirm 6 cases of vandalism in 5 churches"
Bamberg ( Saints statues and crosses have been destroyed in five Bamberg churches. Catholic churches and a Protestant church were affected. The spokesman for the Archdiocese of Bamberg, Harry Luck, told on request: "We are shocked and saddened by the violence in Bamberger churches. We can currently confirm 6 cases of vandalism in 5 churches. Sculptures and saints statues were overturned, pictures were torn off the walls and a pane hit. In consultation with the police we call the communities, believers, sacristans etc. to special attention. The police are investigating and will continue to inform during the day. Consult the press office of the police inspector Bamberg."

According to Bavarian Radio, the property damage apparently amounts to several thousand euros, the Criminal Police determined and have promised to give more information about it today.

The Association of Sacristans of the Archdiocese of Bamberg wrote on Facebook: "Keep your eyes open! Here in Bamberg yesterday and today. It was yesterday and today in the monastery church. St. Otto today and the Evangelical Church of the Redeemer also got it."

  1. Well deserved, not enough damage done. The Catholic Church deserves massive punishment on an unprecedented scale, for its apostacy and arrogance.

    I hope the property destruction continues, until the entire Church repents and returns to historical orthodox Catholicism, or until Catholicism is exterminated, functionally, particularly related to the clergy.

    What exists now, even among the most faithful, is a disgrace.

    Until all annulments granted since about 1970 are, themselves declared null, and the process completely overhauled under lay authority, Catholicism is meaningless.


    1. Nice thought, but the reform, if it does occur, will have to come from the top.

    2. I agree with Karl to a certain extent but I hate to think of precious relics being destroyed.
