St. Alphonsus Church, located in Houston's Manchester community, was vandalized over this past weekend. A statue of the Virgin Mary was spray painted in red with Satanic symbols. It is one thing to spray paint graffiti on the sides of buildings, trains or on freeway exit signs, but when you start messing with God's personal belongings, you're pushing your luck.
The Mayor Pro Tem, who represents the Manchester community, is coming to the rescue by helping raise funds to remove the paint from the statue. She grew up a few houses from the church. 'Tis the season, if you feel like helping out the Mayor Pro Tem, give her office a call.
