France: Muslim smashes up historic church, media dismisses it as person with “mental problems”
On Tuesday 5 August at Thonon-les-Bains, shortly before 8 am, a man of about 30, in only a few minutes, committed major acts of vandalisme in the church of Saint-Hippolyte and in the adjacent basilica of Saint-François-de-Sales: with exceptional force, the person overturned and broke two altars, the candelabras and lecterns, destroyed statues, tore down a tabernacle, twisted a massive bronze cross, smashed in a sacristy door and even broke some stained-glass windows.
According to the priest Le Tué, it was a “young Muslim”, but the hypothesis of a religious motivation still has to be confirmed.
… according to the Thonon priest “there is desecration but also sacrilege, since the Eucharist (hosts)* were trampled on.”
