On January 17, a crucifix (pictured above) was destroyed in Cinisello Balsamo, a municipality in the Province of Milan, Italy.
This comes days after a statue of the Virgin Mary was destroyed and urinated on by a group of North Africans in Italy.
According to the report: “Christmas is over and nativities have been taken down, making room again for blasphemous and sacrilegious acts that aim at the Crucifix, the quintessential sign of the Catholic faith. One of them was destroyed at 1 via Matteotti civico, in Cinisello Balsamo, in close proximity to a populated mosque.”
The incident had an immediate ripple effect: “People have already strongly reacted across social networks. They are outraged at this new blow to their deepest feelings, to their beliefs. People can’t take it anymore.”
Nor did the municipality’s Councillor Giuseppe Berlin of the civil list “Your Town” mince words:
It’s time to put an end to the do-gooders’ policies of welcoming and integrating by a certain political party. Before we put a show of unity with Muslims, let’s have them begin by respecting our civilization and our culture. We shouldn’t minimize the importance of certain signals; we must wake up now or our children will suffer the consequences of this dangerous and uncontrolled Islamic invasion.
