Russian Village Church Disappears 6

The Church of Christ's Resurrection, in the village of Komarovo, was built in 1809. But sometime in October it was taken away brick by brick, says Father Vitaly, a spokesman for the local Russian Orthodox Church. The church was in a very isolated area that was not visited very often, so the theft took place without anyone noticing. A survey of the large, two-story church a few months ago found that it was structurally sound, but now all that remains are the foundations and sections of walls. "This is not an isolated case," said Father Vitaly. "In many villages in central Russia sites of historical interest are being dismantled and people suffer by being deprived of their cultural heritage." I wonder how many years bad luck a person gets for stealing a church?
