Germany: 200 churches damaged and Christian symbols destroyed in just one region


Christianity has been in Germany for over 1,000 years without this kind of thing happening. Why is it happening so often now? Could it have something to do with the massive influx of Muslim migrants who believe that Jesus will return and “break the cross,” and that the idea that Jesus died on the cross is an insult to the majesty of Allah (Qur’an 4:157)? Could it have to do with the massive numbers of new arrivals who believe that their god told them to “strike terror in the enemies of Allah” (Qur’an 8:60)?
“Germany: Two hundred churches damaged and Christian symbols destroyed in just one region,” Voice of Europe, November 14, 2017 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):
In a rare candid moment, German media reported at least 200 cases of damaged churches in the region of Bavaria alone every year.
In addition, attacks on summit crosses are also increasing in the region’s mountains. Crosses on several mountain tops have been toppled and destroyed with axes or saws.
There’s a growing anger among the indigenous German population over the attacks. Some people think Islamists are behind it.
But the attacks on churches and summit crosses are not isolated cases; for months, attacks on Christian symbols have been reported from several Bavarian cantons.
There have been reports of desecration from Pentecost, Längental and from the “Prinzkopf” which lies between Sylvensteinstausee and Tyrol.
Some repairs of historic churches can cost tens of thousands of euros. It’s an attack on people’s faith and communities suspect there is a religious motive behind it, e.g. Muslim migrants might be trying to sow fear in the population.
