Northern United Kingdom latest to experience attacks
Scotland is the latest nation reporting vandalism against buildings and statuary in its Catholic parishes. Saint Simon's Catholic Church and cemetery in Glasgow and Holy Family Church in Mossend, North Lanarkshire were both attacked over the course of this week.
The Glasgow-based Daily Record newspaper reported April 25 that vandals had defaced the bus stop in front of Holy Family with a slur against the Pope. The graffiti was discovered one month after numerous windows had been broken in the parish's primary school on March 25.
Glasgow Police tweeted "significant vandalism" was committed against St. Simon's on April 29. "There is nothing to suggest the incident is sectarian or hate crime. Inquiries are ongoing," the police claimed.

Now who is in their country that would soomething like that.
You know, who comes from places where they do the very same thing to the few churches left.
Jacobites or would it be Anti-Jacobites had something to do with this I’m sure. (Could never figure who is who and what the problem was/is.)
For once, I don’t think it is the Muslims. There is a lot of sectarianism in Scotland still, with protestant vs Catholic emnity still a significant factor, particularly in the Glasgow area.
Sad. I see nothing has changed in 500 years. Vandalism isn’t the answer.
