Yes, I know the various threads discussing the actual crimes were locked. However, I came across this article in La Voz de Galicia today. I thought it would be of interest to Forum members.

Let's not continue to vilify the perpetrators. There is likely a special place in Hell for those who deface and damage places of worship. So, this post is meant to inform, NOT to reopen older wounds...

Hope this helps.

A special place in hell or else one day they wake up as parents of out-of-control teenagers themselves...

Hi t2andreo, is it possible to give a few headlines/highlights in English for the few/many who won’t get to translate the article despite your helpful advice? Gracias, James

Sadly, those were probably adults who did the graffiti. At least adults in the sense of physical age. Mental age? I would put it in the 12-16 year old range.

In Galicia there are good stonecutters who know how to treat the stone.

The graffity " Yo no salí de...…" is now not visible but a stone treatment is required.
The works are carried out by the personnel who is restoring the cathedral.
The place will remain covered to protect it from rain and let the specialists work.
The two graffities on Arch of Xelmirez have not been deleted yet but they are under cover so in this case the rain will be not a problem for the stone.
I think It is not yet clear who is responsible (and put money) in the installation of new cameras around the cathedral: the mayor (City) or the Xunta minister (Camiño de Santiago).

Here is the headline and first two paragraphs. Translation courtesy of Chrome...

"The facade of the cathedral is clean a week after the graffiti

The elimination of the other two graffiti made in the arch of Xelmírez is postponed for
the moment


The graffiti made on the stairs of the Cathedral of Santiago a week ago is almost not visible and only the treatment on the stone remains to be finished so that all trace of this aggression is eliminated. The meticulous work of the experts made that, only a few days after some vandals wrote with spray: "I did not leave your rib, you came out of my pussy" on the facade of the Praza do Obradoiro, there is no trace. Daniel Lorenzo, director of the Cathedral Foundation, indicated that the area will be covered to avoid the eyes of the curious , and above all, to protect it in case of rain and to guarantee that the technicians work with tranquility.

The experts consider it essential that the stone be dry and that it remain isolated to prevent the damage that has already occurred to the monument from increasing. Canon Daniel Lorenzo explained that the works are being carried out with the same personnel who are responsible for the interior restoration of the cathedral: "It is necessary to combine the work with the resources we have." In the Obradoiro they will not continue working until Wednesday, when the day is Tuesday, but there are only a few details left to protect the stone..."

Hope this helps...

Isn't your prediction of eternal damnation a vilification? If you're sincere in your wish not to open wounds, I request that you cut out the fire and brimstone.

I consider it a supposition, not a prediction. After all, does anyone truly understand the hereafter?

As such, it was an opinion. I will NOT apologize for this. It was not offensive, IMHO.

I defer to the moderators. If they tell me to edit I will. But, I do not believe that I have violated the Forum Rules. If I did, the moderators or Ivar will so advise me.

Violation of the rules is one thing. Censorship by peer pressure is both pernicious and insidious. I reject it categorically.

While I respect your position, I do not agree with you.

I hope this clarifies.

Oh please, let's not have any fights. Enough bad stuff out there. I visit this virtual albergue because it is a reliable place of peace and harmony. Let's keep it that way.

Amen @Kanga. Thank you.
We all agree that the graffiti is bad. And information is good to get (thank you).

PM space is the place to duke it out over trivialities and opinions, if you must.
But before you do that maybe ask yourself, why? Why do I want to argue over something unimportant?

I think the information has been provided and there is no further need for comment. I'm closing the thread.
