Want a one-way ticket to hell? Steal a Bible.
That's what blaspheming thieves did Thursday morning, when they defiled an Anglican Church in Hope, making off with three cherished antique Bibles and valuables from the Christ Church National Historic Site.
"I'm still in shock coming in and seeing it all," said church staff member Christine Elliott, who discovered the break-in when she arrived at the church at about 9: 30 a.m. Thursday.
Elliott noticed when she arrived that the padlock on the historic church was smashed. She quickly contacted the Rev. Gail Newell and went to investigate the sanctuary with her supervisor.
