Could this have anything to do with the recent overturn of Roe v Wade?
St. Colman Catholic Church has become the latest church to suffer destruction or vandalism at the hands of suspected arsonists or otherwise malicious attackers…
Police do not yet know who was behind the attacks or what their specific motivation was, although they strongly suspect arson and are conducting their investigation from that lens.
St. Colman was erected in 1874 and gained official historic status more than 100 years later in 1984.
To our knowledge, no one was harmed or killed in the incident.
If you or anyone you know has clues about the incident you can contact: West Virginia State Police at (304) 256-6700, the West Virginia State Fire Marshal’s Arson Hotline at 1 (800) 233-3473, or Raleigh County Crime Stoppers at 304-255-STOP.

Fox News adds:
The alleged arson comes as Catholic churches across the U.S. and in Canada have faced a spate of vandalism and arson attacks in recent years.
The church burnings rose amid protests against Canada’s now-defunct residential schools program.
