Blessed Sacrament Chapel Vandalised in Salindres

Country: France

Date of incident: May 13, 2010

An unknown individual vandalized the Chapel of the Blessed Sacrament of the church of Saint André de Salindres and urinated in the chapel.

Afflicted parishioners published a statement in the newspaper Midi-Libre in which they say: “We want to tell the shame that we, parishioners of Salindres, and our parish priest, felt when facing the stupidity of those who allowed themselves to urinate in the chapel of the Blessed Sacrament of the Church of Salindres. Everyone is free to believe or not to believe, but to desecrate holy places by such gestures, there is a line that should not be crossed.”
