Kae Madden: Vandalism: Catholic churches deplore desecration of sacred spaces
As members of the Rocky Mountain Region of the Ecumenical Catholic Communion, we decry the recent acts of vandalism against the sacred spaces of our Roman Catholic siblings in Christ and violation of any and all sacred spaces.
While acts of violence are sometimes committed in response to perceived injustices, we do not condone vandalism, hate speech, the desecration of sacred spaces or any form of violence as an expression of public dissent.
We encourage open and honest dialogue around contentious issues, especially in these times of polarization within church and society, that we may together build a beloved community that addresses the needs and concerns of all.
