I don't agree with vandalism at all. It's rather immature. There are ways to voice your disagreements without destroying or vandalizing the property of others.

Its very sad. Could be anyone though, some adolescent kids, anti catholic people, anyone who is bored. Luckily Mary has forgiven them and is probably praying for them.
