Chapel in French Military Base Desecrated

Attacks against Christianity are multiplying and reaching places one would have thought protected. On Saturday it was in the naval base in Toulon (photo), access to which is highly controlled, that a chapel was desecrated. Three major symbols of the Catholic faith were overturned and destroyed: the tabernacle, the baptistery, and the ambon (pulpit where the Bible, which was trampled on, is placed).

A sailor who came to pray in the chapel discovered the facts. An inquiry has been opened by the naval gendarmerie.

“The intolerance now penetrates into military precincts: there are reasons to be truly concerned" indicates Monseigneur Poinard, vicar-general of the diocese of the French military. Source: Novopress
