St. Colman Catholic Church in Raleigh, West Virginia was burned down to the ground on Sunday, according to the Catholic News Agency, following the historic overturning of Roe v. Wade. 

“On 6/26/2022 units from Beaver VFD were alerted to a structure fire at the Saint Colman Catholic Church on Irish Mountain Road in Shady Spring, WV,” a statement posted by the Beaver Volunteer Fire Department said. 

When the firefighters arrived on the scene, the historic church was already gone, burned to the ground and “smoldering,” according to the posted statement. The fire was “suspicious in nature” and is being suspected as arson. 

While it’s not clear yet who caused the fire, arson is suspected according to the local volunteer fire department.

The small, quaint, white building dates all the way back to 1877 and was known back then as  "The Little Catholic Church on Irish Mountain." It’s listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is a parish in the Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston, West Virginia.

Radical leftist groups have been spreading terror to Catholic churches all over the country, spray-painting profane messages on church walls and beheading Catholic icons and statues, so it wouldn’t be a surprise if the fire was traced to one of these groups. Pro-life pregnancy centers have also been tragically targeted before and after the reversal of Roe v. Wade. 

While no one was hurt, we hope and pray for the safety of Christian churches throughout the U.S. in these troubling times.
