    The vandalism is "heartbreaking, but sadly it is becoming more and more common these days," the pastor said in a statement.

    BROOKLYN, N.Y. — The Knights of Columbus raised $21,000 for the replacement of vandalized statues of the Blessed Virgin Mary and St. Therese of Lisieux at a New York City church as of Friday, July 30.

    The statues were smashed July 17 at Our Lady of Mercy Catholic Church in Queens by a woman who was seen on security cameras. The vandalism is being investigated by the New York City Police Department Hate Crimes Unit and the 112th Precinct.

    I'm glad it's being investigated by the Hate Crimes Unit, but I'm honestly surprised that it is. It's about time that anti-Catholic attacks are viewed as being hate crimes.

    I hope they catch the woman that did it and I'm willing to bet any amount of money that she's a leftist and affiliated with Antifa or some other fruitcake activist group.
