The Church of St Lambertus a 19th century historic building in Immerath, Germany, has been destroyed even though the public has demonstrated against the decision to destroy this church, whilst mosques and so-called Islamic centres spread like wild fire through the country.

The massive beautiful historic church was “notable for its double towers and neo-Romanesque design” according to the Catholic Herald, it was destroyed by RWE mining company so they can open an opencast lignite mine.

The farmland surrounding St Lambertus and the church itself were brought many years ago, St Lambertus was officially deconsecrated in 2013.

Apparently history and culture mean nothing these days. The Villagers have been located to a brand new site, with a new church built “according to a modern design”.

Bodies have been exhumed from the graveyard of the church. The church was known to locals as as a ‘cathedral’ due to its massive size and beautiful architecture.
