The statue at the Bellmore Knights of Columbus Council of the Virgin Mary was decapitated last week. According to members of the council this is the fifth time the statue has been vandalized and last Christmas their Nativity scene was desecrated.
As a past Grand Knight of St. Anastasia Knights of Columbus Council #5911 in Douglaston, I am appalled and outraged upon this attack on our Catholic faith. I hope and pray that these evildoers are brought to justice for this most egregious act. In addition, this council had provided food and shelter after Hurricane Sandy for those in need. As was said by Nassau County Legislator Dave Denenberg, “This attack on one faith is an attack on all faiths.” I wholeheartedly agree. These attacks on our faith must come to a halt.
