At Least 45 Churches Set on Fire in Canada as Attacks Escalate

(CBC News Channel Facebook Page)
An apparent ongoing anti-Christian campaign in Canada has resulted in a total of 45 churches attacked with some of the buildings burned to the ground.

As CBN News has reported, terrorists are responsible for the attacks against mainly Roman Catholic churches serving indigenous congregations.

The crimes stem from far-left terrorists with a Marxist ideology whose sole purpose is to strike fear in Canadians for practicing their faith.

"Burning down churches is not in solidarity with us indigenous people. As I said we do not destroy people's places of worship," said Jenn Allan-Riley, an assistant Pentecostal minister at Living Waters Church during a press conference last week.

"We're concerned about the burning and defacing of churches bringing more strife, depression, and anxiety to those already in pain and mourning," she said.

Seventeen of the 45 church buildings attacked have suffered fire damage or completely burned to the ground.

The Counter Signal reports the fires and the vandalism span six provinces and the Northwest Territories. Some of the attacks have been in the heartland of First Nation territory.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police said they are investigating the church fires to see if they are connected.

As CBN News reported, terrorists have also targeted other churches not affiliated with the Roman Catholic church. Last week, the building housing the House of Prayer Alliance Church in Calgary was set on fire.

Battalion Chief Keith Stahl told CBC News the fire was confined to the outside of the building, but the interior did have heavy smoke damage. Police believe the fire was intentionally set but have no suspects.
