I am appalled that American Martyrs church in Bayside was vandalized. Two religious statues were damaged by a suspect who was soon arrested.
I have been to American Martyrs church a number of times for various events. I found it to be a beautiful church and find it hard to understand why anyone would want to hurt this parish and its wonderful congregation.
I hope that attacks on any religious faiths will cease, but I guess I'm dreaming.
