In Southern California, Catholics are fighting to save a statue of Saint Junípero Serra.
The Ventura City Council held a meeting last week about the fate of the statue, which stands outside City Hall. Their decision has been postponed to Wednesday, July 15.
The city put up fencing around the statue to protect it from vandalism, as officials say they want the figure's fate to be decided democratically — not by an angry mob.
Angry protestors are making their voices heard, but local Catholics are also showing up to protect the statue.
They have launched a GoFundMe page to raise money for attorneys, campaigning materials and more in a bid to save the statue from leftists.
Statues of St. Junípero Serra have faced scrutiny over false claims he mistreated the Native Americans who converted and were baptized at California's missions.
In San Francisco late last month, anarchists toppled a statue of the Franciscan saint and Abp. Salvatore Cordileone led prayers of reparation at the site.
All this comes as leftist rioters across the United States topple statues of historical figures.
