Well looks like it was either Atheists or people that just plain hate Christians whom are responsible.

WHY!? :cry:

I don't care whether it was anti-religion people or not, whoever it was should learn to respect NATURE :x

Why must you make the leap to atheists? It is unknown who the vandals are. They could have been anti-monarchists. People don't always point fingers at Christians when a swastika gets spray-painted somewhere.

Must we always blame the atheist?

Actually its been suggested that the vandals in question were displeased by the owner of the land upon which the tree grows. Edward James, one of the directors of Crown Currency Exchange, which became bankrupt recently, robbing hundreds of people of thousands of pounds. Pissed off PLENTY of people.

I've seen much worse vandalism than a damn tree being messed around with... Look at the riots that happened here in London a few days ago and get some perspective :roll:

So they would target an irreplaceable landmark. :roll:

@ Asp-Z

This is worse than what you have seen, because you can replace a car or a window for a building, this tree is irreplaceable.

In what way is a tree irreplaceable? Wait for parts to grow back or, if it's dead, just plant a seed. The latter will take ages, yes, but a tree can still be replaced.

Its not irreplaceable. Its not even the original, nor is it the only one. There are loads of "Holy" thorn trees on that land. The one they cut down was a planting from the mid fifties if memory serves. Yes, its cultural vandalism, but its not the end of the tree. I'm sure there is a re-birth metaphor just waiting to pop out of this.
