Just before Christmas, The Church of St. Luke and St. Matthew in Clinton Hill caught fire, suffering damage to its doors, entryway, and some old chairs, the Voice reports. The church was used by Occupy Sandy volunteers as a headquarters and distribution hub; members were inside at the time but safely escaped. Police suspect arson and are investigating. It’s not the only recent case of an assault on a religious institution in Brooklyn; here are several others. [photo]
