The ancient mythical Greek island of Lesbos is today better known as anchorage ground for human traffickers and the problems and conflicts that have arisen in connection with the boat traffic.
It is now reported that a large cross monument on the Greek Orthodox Christian island has been levelled to the ground. This after a group claiming to promote intercultural coexistence argued that the cross could be perceived as offensive to the predominantly Muslim boat migrants.
The cross monument was built on the cliffs of Apellia, beneath the castle of Mytilene, in memory of people who have died in the sea. According to the local coexistence group, however, the cross was offensive because many who have drowned, and many migrants on the island are not Christians.
The local newspaper on the island reports that the group has also received support from some aid organisations that expressed similar negative opinions about the cross-shaped memorial monument.
A letter was sent to the Islands port minister and mayor, in which the coexistence group claimed that the cross was placed there to prevent migrants from swimming.
The letter stated that the initiators of the monument were aspiring crusaders with racist and intolerant motives who abused the Christian cross, which should be a symbol of love and sacrifice. And they therefore called for the monument to be demolished.
And that was what happened. Just a few days later, at night, the whole monument was levelled to the ground. The demolished remains of the cross remain as rubble on the site.
The attack by the coexistence group on the monument and the demolition of it has aroused strong reactions in large parts of the local population who believe that the deed goes against the Christian religious beliefs shared by a majority of the inhabitants of the Island.
Yes, let’s accommodate the sensitivities of Satanic monsters. Why don’t we all slit our own throats while we’re at it ?
I think the Greeks are trying to prove they gave smaller balls than the Germans.
They need to rebuild the cross and make it twice as big, and put the scum that destroyed it in prison for crimes against humanity.
They’re not even waiting for a single freaking complaint, the tyranny of the minority.
No, it is self-oppression, self-censoring out of FEAR of Muslim outrage.
Makes no sense. Are they hiding signs of Islam in their countries? Liberals are insane.
Lesbos? Greece should turn control over to the nastiest herd of bull-dykes it can assemble and offer hefty bounties on every moslem skull they can acquire.
How do they know that the meece don’t look at the Cross as a symbol of hope for a better life than Islam has brought to their lives? Isn’t a life under Islam what they’re running from? And isn’t it discriminatory to assume that all refugees are muslim?
Things like this can be good for waking up a sleeping population.
Makes sense as they both work for Satan.
Lesbos-slang for lesbians? Plural
If they are so offended, they are free to land elsewhere.
Well, 0pansy did this crap during his reign. Don’t you remember all the times when he would seek out Christian colleges and have all of the Christian crosses and paintings covered?
Muzzies are not people that can be reasoned with.
Lesbos is a Greek island. (Google is your friend)(well....figuratively)
Brutal destruction of Christianity is the goal of mass migration.
Wait a minute. WHO actually demolished the cross? Who authorized the demolition?
The way the article reads, this “group” complained, and the cross came down, what ever the wishes of the inhabitants of Lesbos, as if without the intervention of any human agency.
Some human beings did this, and they need to be held accountable. This is Daesh/Taliban stuff, and should not be tolerated.
...the coexistence group...
“Coexistence” really means “shut up, Christians.”
