    The criminal nature of the arson left no doubt when discovered. On Wednesday evening, the Saint-Pierre du Martroi Church in Orléans was the target of a series of malevolent acts, according to police.

    The religious music sheets were set on fire, furniture was vandalised, heinous graffiti were discovered on several walls of the religious building. In the middle of the graffiti tags, the investigators found the inscription: “Allah ou Akbar” a source specified.

    The fire, promptly tackled by the fire brigade, didn’t damage the structure of the building, but furniture and other artifacts were damaged. An investigation was opened by the police station in Orléans.

    According to a website that tracks christianophobia, it was not the interior of the Saint-Pierre du Martroi church that was damaged on the evening of Wednesday, July 25, but the Saint-Pierre House adjoining the church, located at 17 rue d’Escures.

    It serves as a parish hall for young people from the diocese.

    Partitions were reportedly burned, an electronic keyboard was destroyed and rather obscene tags placed on the interior walls.  The diocese, meanwhile, according to the press, said the incident was not an example of “religious hatred”.

    Last month two migrant youths reportedly entered the Our Lady of Providence Roman Catholic church in Digoin shortly before the lunchtime Mass and began yelling “Allahu Akbar”.

    In Perpignan, at the summits of Carlit and Cambre d’Aze mountain peaks, crosses planted in 2015 were destroyed.

    It was the soldiers of the CNEC [National Commando Training Center] who had paid for them, who had provided all the material for their construction and obtained the authorizations of the County Council, the Natural Park and the municipalities concerned.

    “It is a very ancient tradition that crosses are planted on top of our mountains, not only in Catalan countries, but elsewhere,” said Monsignor Norbert Turini, Bishop of Perpignan-Elne.
