Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Possibly you didn't look very hard

Both your RT and your Newspeak articles clearly have their source in this article published in Le Figaro at the end of March.

Two high school kids set fire to an altar and broke some furniture. They got caught on videosurveillance.

Figaro, being a conservative paper, adds a bunch of numbers they got from the police.

The article from Libération puts the numbers in perspective : anti-religious acts reported to the police in 2018 : 541 antisemitic, 100  anti-muslim and 1 063 anti-christian (mostly thefts and desecrations of churches, which are very soft targets because they are almost always empty)

And here are some numbers from the Ministry of the Interior

But you are, of course, free to prefer far-right secondary sources to learn these facts which political crectnis conceals.
