Black Metal Sect Arrested For Desecrating Churches
Tim Finan from Telegraph.co.uk is reporting:
A court in Brittany heard yesterday how four members of a fanatical black metal anti-Christian sect went on alcohol fuelled rampages smashing ancient granite crosses in cemeteries and torching a 16th century chapel classified as an ancient monument.
With a satanic bible in the boot of their car and using a tourist guide to pilgrimage sites they selected holy places of worship where they claimed Catholic saints had raised ancient Celtic pagan monuments replacing them with Christian churches and chapels.
They scrawled satanic symbols and inverted crosses on premises they defiled - all in the name of their sect, True Armorik Black Metal.
The Court heard how two of the group all aged in their twenties were members of a black metal music group, the words in their songs glorified Hitler as the new anti-Christ and invoked scenes from The Silence Of The Lambs.
In Court in Quimper the defendants all from western Brittany, denied worshipping Satan and having adulated Hitler and the Nazi Party.
An "orgy of profanity" culminated on the night of June 15th, 2007 when the four set fire to the ancient Chapel of the Cross near Loqueffret, a granite Chapel situated in the depths of the Huelgoat Forest. They broke into the Chapel and torched ancient oak pews and closets using petrol from a plastic can.
