    In case people did not hear about the story, the Archdiocese of Colombo reported that this past December, elephants stormed an area that in 2008 sustained truly horrific anti-Catholic violence. I won’t post what happened, other than ‘bad, REALLY bad.’

    The fascinating aspect of the story is that the elephants left alone Christians and seemed to target non-Christians. This is a real story and has been featured on pretty mainstream services like BBC.

    It is a good reality check as we argue in parish committees about how many EMHC to have or who gets to be reader this week.

    The story can also be found in print at Zenit.

    Well, the two incidents happened in two different countries – the first (Sri Lanka) had a Buddhist majority, the second obviously is majority Hindu.

    What is even worse is that one of the organizations that incite anti-Christian violence is actually a major party (they’re the country’s second largest political party), and they do this openly to rile up their base. At least here in America when people rouse hatred against Catholics, they have to lie about it.
