Pro-abortion terrorists leveled up their violent attacks against pro-life advocates after the Supreme Court made a historic ruling to overturn Roe v Wade.
These extremists called for violence and vandalism against churches, and their latest attack burned a historic West Virginia Catholic Church to the ground Sunday.
A suspected arson attack completely destroyed St. Colman Catholic Church in Shady Spring, West Virginia on Sun. June 27.
The 135-year-old little white church registered in the National Register of Historic Places was considered “The Little Catholic Church on Irish Mountain.”
Irish immigrant families settled the church and farmed the land around it starting in the late 1800s. It was the first Roman Catholic Church in Raleigh County, West Virginia.
But this historic place of worship was burned to the ground by pro-abortion terrorists.
The Beaver Volunteer Fire Department in Raleigh County received a call about a structure fire but found it “burned to the ground and smoldering” upon arrival.
Here’s what the Beaver Volunteer Fire Department said in a Facebook post:
“On 6/26/2022 units from Beaver VFD were alerted to a structure fire at the Saint Colman Catholic Church on Irish Mountain Road in Shady Spring, WV.”
It said the fire was considered “suspicious in nature” and was being investigated as arson.
Wesley Bennett, who helped maintain the church and cemetery over the years, told the outlet the arsonist’s actions were unfathomable.
Here’s what Bennett said:
“I’m sure you and myself and most people have trouble understanding what kind of mindset it takes to damage a place like that, that has so much history involved, that means so much to so many people,” Bennett said.
“They’ve not only robbed the Catholics in our area of a historical treasure, they’ve robbed our entire area of a treasure. And it can’t be replaced,” he said.
Social media users shared their distress over the recent loss, one person writing, “Pure evil caused this. They can destroy a building but not the Spirit of those who built and watched over it through all these years.”
“This is such a shame, it was a beautiful little church and we enjoyed visiting. Our family has relatives buried in the cemetery there and many years ago attended,” another commented.
In a June 24 memo, the Department of Homeland Security drafted a warning of increased pro-abortion extremist attacks, many perpetrated by the radical “Jane’s Revenge” terrorist group. DHS had also specifically told Catholic Churches to be aware of the group promising a “Night of Rage.”
