San Geremia in Venice

Moroccan Muslim Entered Church & Vandalized Crucifix

On July 12, a Moroccan Muslim with French residency, entered the Venice church filled with visitors and rushed with loud cries to the large 300 year old crucifix. Here the man shouted, according to witnesses, repeatedly: “I will give you the truth. I bring the truth.” He snatched the three-meter-high cross and proceeded to damage the Corpus and cross by stomping it. He tore the left arm figure of Christ off.

      Nope just led away. Why did not one stop him?

      Personally, I want an exorcism performed both on the desecrator and the church.

        Fear not, the Pope will invite this “troubled lone wolf” to be a guest speaker at the Vatican in the near future. Maybe, just maybe, he’ll also wash his feet for European network news! *sigh*
