Students At Catholic College Smash Statue of Blessed Mother

Bring Me MN the News, Adam Uren: This at a Catholic University! What kind of monsters are these diabolical students? Where did they come from? Catholic families? With parents paying for their education, no doubt.

A numbers of students are facing punishment after a statue of the Virgin Mary was deliberately smashed at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul last week.

That’s according to President Julie Sullivan and Provost Richard Plumb, who issued a statement about the “religious vandalism” that occurred at the university’s Ireland Hall student residence. Report is here.
