Arsonists Set Fire to Ancient Catholic Church in France

Arsonists set fire to the church of Saint-Apollinaire in eastern France this week, after which the parish priest declared, “This was the last thing we needed, given recent events.”
The gothic church of Saint-Apollinaire, whose origins date back to the 12th century, is located in the village of Meximieux, in the department of Ain, France.
In a Facebook post, the parish priest, Father Sylvain, thanked local firefighters, who managed to put out the blaze on Monday afternoon. He also noted that police have arrested the perpetrators of the crime but does not go into detail regarding their number or the motivation behind their action.
“It is our faith that is violated and it is our community that they wanted to strike,” the priest said.

There was a similar fire here in St. Louis several years ago. It was at Christmas and the perpetrator set the crib on fire and piled the celebrant's chair and other material on top to stoke the flames. Actually, the police caught the one who set the blaze.---They then refused to press charges on orders from the Archdiocese. I have to presume that it was an immigrant and probably a Muslim. The idea was not to create hysteria and retribution. When is this going to stop? It is always that same profile and it is happening all over the world. It is always the same orchestrators. People need to wake up.-----This particular incident happened in St. Louis, Mo, and occurred at St. Monica Parish which is a parish in a rich area of South County.

Let me guess-- the opening prayers for this arsonist to set fire to this church goes something like this:

"Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar!
Ashhadu an la ilaha illa Allah. Ashhadu an la ilaha illa Allah.
Ashadu anna Muhammadan Rasool Allah. Ashadu anna Muhammadan Rasool Allah.
Hayya 'ala-s-Salah. Hayya 'ala-s-Salah.
Hayya 'ala-l-Falah. Hayya 'ala-l-Falah.
Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar!
La ilaha illa Allah. "

I think I posted that I'm a model, and had some upcoming shoots canceled (Italy,Germany,Indonesia) but was hoping the Mexico one for early April stays. Well, it's gone. Them's the breaks. Hopefully this does not turn into a prolonged thing similar to Italy. Everyone is hoping we're like South Korea.
I defy anyone to condemn our President in this crisis. I've watched him every at his 11:00 news briefings with his team. Gid bless him for doing it. And G.D. the liberal media, who bait him with their questions every day. They're the ones who triggered the panic, and the stocks to crash.

Some Mohammedan, follower of someone who likely never existed, did this. Always is, although it's oft covered up.They also smash graves and the blushing old homo perv Bergoglio probably would want to kiss their feet. The Mohàmmadan invaders must all be removed. Remove kebab and their dhimmi enablers. Our Lady will give us victory.

@JBQ St.LOUIS, MO? I did't think too many immigrants go there to live. I would have probably think it's some secularist leftist activist, antifa maybe? The clergy loves them too. Especially Bergoglio. He's one of them in thinking.

There was the Saint Apollonaire incident in Quebec last year or so.... What's the connection and symbolism if any?

@Constantine: You may not be aware of the number of Bosnians that have come to St. Louis. There are now Syrians on the way. There are 314k people in the City. Half are white. Of that, half of the classified whites are Bosnian which means about 70 thousand. Another 20 thousand have already moved to St. Louis County. There are close to 100 thousand Bosnian immigrants alone. ----Most Bosnians are moderate. Most were forced to convert back in the Middle Ages. They will not revert because that would be apostasy and deserving of death. Nevertheless, there are numbers growing of more radical Islam.---In fact, the first honor killing in the Unites States was in St. Louis. Tina Isa was the name of the girl. She was dating a black schoolmate at Roosevelt High School in the St. Louis Public District. Dad said no. Tina said yes and would rat to the FBI about his involvement in the first World Trade Center bombing.---The result was an FBI taping of the murder of the girl. Mom, Brazilian Catholic, held her down and dad, Palestinian Muslim, slit her throat.

I was not aware of this immigration to St. LOUIS.

Bosnians are being located all over the Midwest.
Trump is no different than Obama concerning immigration.
As my fellow co-workers could tell you,they do not like Christians + are influencing the younger White Godless Americans.
They both share a common resentment of Catholics due to the communist public school system.
Yes Bosnians are White but they are Muslim first.
(Based upon my interactions with them even the older ones 50 and over)
Pray your Holy Rosary daily the future looks tough.

Addendum to Bosnians in St. Louis. These individuals are classified as political refugees who escaped potential death for their beliefs. This entitles them to a great number of economic incentives.----One of my students' father received a grant for a new semi trailer cab which go for 50k, A woman beautician and her husband received a grant to buy a run down property for her shop. The site was worth 75k and the government antied up 150k to a shyster real estate front.----Price gouging is part of the invective. Politically connected individuals are using this process as a way to soak the government in the guise of helping. Actually, I have found out that the same is going on in the African-American community. The Section 8 program is inflating rent rates and the government pays most of the rent up to like 90%.---Here in St. Louis, Paul McKee came in from New York to invest in rebuilding the North Side. His investment was worth one billion dollars. I am sure that a lot of it was government money. It is now being washed away because the rebuilt and rehabbed housing were nothing more than shanty shacks which are falling apart.----What makes it even worse is that the people displaced by his project and a government multi million dollar mapping agency rebuild has displaced thousands. They are all moving south and filling up houses in dying areas where Section 8 is killing these neighborhoods. Crime then rises in white areas because these poor mostly black turn to selling drugs to supplement their income.---Where is the Church in all of this? The Archdiocese is taking in thousands of non Catholic blacks and various ethnic immigrants. Each child comes with a government grant while the native Catholics pay double. The religious base of the schools is being destroyed out of economic incentive.---Under the guise of school mergers because of low numbers, Catholic schools are becoming regional non Catholic entities. They are nothing more than brainwashing centers for the new world order run by radical leftist lesbian women and their subservient gay priest lackeys. One priest at one of these entities gave a sermon and it is referenced in print where he told the parish that there are many types of families. There are moms and dads, moms and moms, and dads and dads. All are of equal worth.
