The Possible Reason Behind The Vandalism At St. Andrews Church
One of the things that has a tendency to go noticed in a city at times is vandalism. It happens all the time, from spray painting the sides of businesses to breaking windows.
There's one place in Amarillo though where it's seemingly been targeted vandalism after a couple of incidents happening relatively close together.
St. Andrews Church has been targeted twice in the last few weeks and it doesn't appear to be random hits on the church.
It started with someone spraying a pentagram on the front doors. If you're unsure of what a pentagram is, it's a symbol often used by Wiccans (witches) and in paganism. It's also widely seen as a sign for evil.
A few days ago, St. Andrews was targeted again, but this time inside the church. The vandals tore up the inside of the sanctuary defaced their processional cross.
So why are these vandals targeting St. Andrews Church? The rumor running around is that it's simply someone that disagrees with the views of the church. There are some signs that this person knows exactly what they're doing and targeting within the church.
St. Andrews is a sacramental church and it appears that whoever is vandalizing the church targeted things that would've been viewed as sacred to a sacramental church.
In other words, this vandal simply doesn't like what the church stands for or represents, so they feel a need to attack it.
It's definitely something to keep an eye on at other churches in the Amarillo area to see if it happens at similar churches or if it's just St. Andrews they're targeting.
