Vandals Hack At “The Heart Of Christianity”

Glastonbury’s 2000-year-old Holy Thorn Tree Cut Down By Vandals Vandals have destroyed one of the most celebrated Christian pilgrimage sites in Britain and chopped down a tree said to have sprouted from the staff of Joseph of Arimathea 2,000 years ago.

Police tape surrounds the vandalised Holy Thorn Tree on Wearyall Hill in Glastonbury as stunned locals look on. The branches were cut off overnight and a police investigation has been launched.

The Holy Thorn Tree of Glastonbury, Somerset, is visited by thousands every year to pay homage and leave tokens of worship. Those visiting today were moved to tears on finding the tree cut to a stump.

The tree in all its glory before it was hacked apart. Legend says it sprang from the staff of Joseph of Arimathea, the man who helped Jesus of the cross. To the right of the tree, in the distance, is Glastonbury Tor.

The sacred tree is unique in that it blossoms twice a year – at Christmas and Easter – and sprigs taken from the thorn are sent to The Queen of England each year for the festive table.

    Some people just thrive on being despicable.

    I strongly endorse public whippings for these vandals. And lots and lots and lots of community service type stuff.

    • I agree with you, DF. My Dad truly believed that “an eye for an eye” was a fitting punishment. I believe that too.

      In today’s politically correct society, the punishments handed out usually aren’t severe enough to prevent crime or to stop offenders from committing repeat offenses.

Just look at us. Everything is backwards, everything is upside down. Doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, psychiatrists destroy minds, scientists destroy truth, major media destroys information, religions destroy spirituality and governments destroy freedom.
