I blame the bad singing :p


Belgium Church roof collapse on Christmas Eve


The roof of the church of Lutsele in Belgium collapsed because of the heavy snow caused by the extreme weather conditions.Worshippers at The Regina Pacis church in Diepenbeek were very lucky enough because the disturbing incident occured just hours after their midnight mass service.
If the worshippers would have been there there would certainly have been mass casualties.

As you can see in the report photo that only two walls - one bearing a crucifix - of the structure remain upright.Tonnes of rubble remain where the congregation sang carols and prayed just a few hours earlier.The roof is believed to have given way under the huge weight of snow covering it. Local residents report a huge crashing sound in the middle of the night when the roof gave way.

Looks like it was hit by a missile, towed in by the extremists. What a manger disaster.....yuk, yuk, yuk.
