Police left stumped by third axe attack on cross

Police are speculating that it is someone who wants to ‘free’ the mountain from religious or Christian symbols.

The suspect is thought to be a man in his mid-thirties, around 1.80 metres tall, and fairly strong. He reportedly boasted about felling the cross to people in a nearby mountain hut, with witnesses saying he had a foreign sounding accent.

    I’m sure it has nothing to do with islam. That would be islamophobic.

      I denounce you for even thinking such a thing.

    Who would wish to do such a thing? Very puzzling. But wait – the article said something about the perp possibly wanting to “free the mountain”. Hmm, maybe it’s some New Age nut or a Wiccan adherent who wishes to cleanse Mother Nature of a particularly disgusting symbol of evil white, supremacism. Yeah, that’s probably it.

      Foreign accent, in Germany, chopping down Christian symbols, my money is on those Baha’i troublemakers.

    Seems police officials are suffering a special kind of stupid. On orders from above, no doubt.

    They should restore that Cross and consecrate the ground around it with several inches of solid lard.
