‘It won’t stop us’: Pastor refuses to back down after his church and others in area were vandalized, apparently targeted by abortion believers

After a number of Houston-area churches were vandalized and became the target of other criminal activity after a draft Supreme Court decision was leaked last week and overturned Roe v. calfa pastor of one of the congregations defiantly spoke out against the acts – apparently carried out by pro-abortionists.

what are the details

A spray-painted message reading “Pro-Choice Is Pro-Life” was spotted Monday morning at the front entrance and a side door of the Holy Rosary Catholic Church in Houston. KRIV-TV reported.

“It is very unfortunate that people are so desecrating and taking their frustrations out on the Church,” Father Peter Damian Harris told the broadcaster.

The church changed its opening hours due to the vandalism: now it opens 30 minutes before confession and mass and closes immediately after, KRIV said.

“It is very unfortunate, but I would rather take the necessary precautions than risk someone coming to desecrate our sacred space,” Harris added to the station.

He also told KRIV he believes the vandalism at Holy Rosary is related to vandalism at two Catholic churches in nearby Katy: St Bartholomew the Apostle Catholic Church and St Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church.

“It’s definitely a result of the leak that came to light last week, the Supreme Court,” Harris told the broadcaster.

The tabernacle – often considered the holiest object in Catholic churches as it contains hosts for communion – was taken from St Bartholomew’s sometime between Sunday evening and Monday morning. Katy Magazine reports.

Harris added to KRIV that “someone was trying to desecrate the Eucharist” at St Elizabeth.

Regarding the culprit responsible for spraying graffiti on his church’s doors, Harris had a clear and defiant message.

“I’d rather you come in and pray and talk and not try to desecrate our sacred space,” he told the station. “That won’t stop us. It drives us to continue to be witnesses of Christ in the world.”

Anything else?

On Sunday in Los Angeles, protesters dressed in red disrupted morning mass at the Cathedral of Our Lady of Angels – but video showed a well-fed man climbing over a pew and confronting the protesters, stopping them dead.

Indeed, reports of “credible threats” circulated about protesters planning to disrupt Mother’s Day weekend services.
