REPORT: White House Says It Will Prosecute Criminals Targeting Churches And Religious Statues

In recent weeks, some of the vandals who were targeting historic statues have moved on to religious statues and churches.

A statue of St. Mary was vandalized in Boston last week and a statue of Jesus Christ in Florida was targeted this week.

Now the White House is saying they will prosecute the perpetrators of these kinds of crimes.

The White House official cited the “recent onslaught of violence against Catholic monuments like the Virgin Mary statue in Boston and the Jesus statue in Miami” calling these acts “absolutely appalling.”

“President Trump joins the Catholic community in solidarity during this difficult time,” the official told the DCNF. “Rest assured, President Trump will always demand law and order in American communities, and ensure the criminals causing these sacrilegious acts will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”

What kind of person does this?

People should be prosecuted for this. It’s sickening.
