Jesus Statue Desecrated

Discovered Thursday morning on Jesus Christ statue outside the Baton Rouge Catholic cathedral

A friend here in Baton Rouge sends me these images of a Jesus statue outside of St. Joseph Catholic Cathedral in Baton Rouge, the mother church of the diocese. The desecration was discovered on Thursday morning. I have blotted out the f-word:


I do not for one second believe that a black person desecrated this statue of Jesus Christ. Not here in Louisiana, at least. This has not made the local news. My source is a local Catholic friend who confirmed that the photos are real.

That anybody, of any race, would do such a thing is execrable. The times are evil. We can expect a lot more of this kind of thing.
