There has been a vast amount of vandalism against Christian churches in France that we had never heard about until the Notre Dame went up in flames last week.
This is not limited to France. Last weekend, there were several attempts of arson against different churches in the small Dutch town of Leerdam; one succesful. Anti-establishment blog Geenstijl notes that there had been another attempted arson a couple of days earlier. No mention of any of this in local or national mainstream media.
One is a hate crime; the other forgotten.
Leaving bacon outside a mosque is a ‘hate crime’ that will get you 15 years in prison. Burning churches will not even make a headline.
