Could it have anything to do with the Qur’an’s suggestion that the destroyed remnants of ancient non-Muslim civilizations are a sign of Allah’s punishment of those who rejected his truth? “Many were the Ways of Life that have passed away before you: travel through the earth, and see what was the end of those who rejected Truth.” (Qur’an 3:137) The ruins of non-Muslim civilizations thus bear witness to the truth of Islam. What ensues from that idea? The creation of more ruins.
Or is this the work of Leftists who are unwittingly (or knowingly) advancing the same agenda as that of the Islamic State and the Taliban?

The statue, which sits behind the church at 14187 SW 72nd St., was desecrated sometime Tuesday night into Wednesday morning.

The incident comes on the heels of an attack on an Orlando-area church over the weekend. Steven Shields, 23, was charged with arson after deputies say he plowed a minivan through the front door of Queen of Peace Catholic Church in Ocala and set it on fire….
