Vandals decapitated a statue of the Virgin Mary outside of a Catholic church in Toronto on Sunday.
The staff of Our Lady of Lebanon church in Toronto, Canada, discovered the beheaded statue. The Maronite Catholic church said parishioners were “horrified” to discover the “deplorable and malicious act.” The church has been in contact with local police and is reviewing security cameras in an effort to identify the responsible parties.
The vandalism comes as churches across the United States have become targets for vandals and arsonists. In July, a statue of the Virgin Mary outside of a New York City church was vandalized, with the perpetrators spray-painting “IDOL” on the statue. Another statue of Mary in Boston, erected to honor soldiers returning from World War II, was burned.
Rev. John Curran, pastor of Saint Peter Parish in Boston, said he was “shocked” by the incident.
