MANCHESTER, United Kingdom – Vandals and thieves have damaged at least eight Christian churches in Germany since early April.
Churches have also been attacked, apparently at random, in Scotland, England, France, Poland, Spain, Italy and Austria.
The cases were logged by the Vienna-based Observatory of Intolerance and Discrimination Against Christians in Europe, an independent organization founded with the help of the Council of European Bishops’ Conferences. Details of each of them have been posted on the observatory’s website.
