Wait, what? When was altar-smashing done in the past*, and under what circumstances? I've never heard of that before (I have much to learn when it comes to the areas of Church history that don't involve councils, :P ).

* Besides the period after Vatican II, of course.

It was done in England and all over Europe after the Reformation during Protestant takeovers.

And then it was done again all over the U.S., England, and Europe after the Protestant takeover of Catholicism after Vatican II.  (Tongue partially in cheek there.)

Michael Davies (a British author) has written brilliantly regarding the stunning parallels of these two periods.

(Another story I recall concerns a bishop in some U.S. diocese that had to get police protection around a church during the altar smashing to keep the angry parishioners away.)
