Nassau, Bahamas – Bahamas Press is reporting an incident of vandalism at an Anglican Church in the Southwest.
We understand a vagrant in the area for a second time has broken the church doors down and created damage in an attempt to draw attention.
The incident took place last week, just following the church’s annual fair.
A worshiper from the parish noted, “This is not the first time this disturbed man has broken down the church door. He has done it before and perhaps for money or attention.
The City of Nassau is fast becoming more and more violent by the day. Even the Church has difficulty worshiping in peace without being interrupted by rude violent criminals. WE CAN DO BETTER!
