An Australian couple was attacked on the train by a group of Muslims because they were wearing crosses.
Sydney-based Daily Telegraph reported on the incident, claiming that Greek community leader, Rev George Capsis, has warned Christians to avoid wearing overtly religious symbols to avoid drawing unwanted attention from hostile Muslims.
Unfortunately, Mike discovered the hard way that being a Christian in Australia is a dangerous thing.
he claims that he was on a train with his girlfriend when they were attacked by a group of Muslim men who pulled his crucifix off his neck and threw it on the ground, stomping on it and bending it.
Then, he says, he was punched and kicked as the four men yelled “F*** Jesus” and shouted about Allah.
When his girlfriend came to defend him,she was accosted by two Arabic-speaking Muslim women, hitting and kicking her.
To make things worse, he alleges that he saw five uniformed “Transport Officers” watching the attack and doing nothing to help, apparently waiting for the next stop where police were stationed.
Officers took the name of three of the alleged attackers as well as a statement from Mike, saying they will review the CCTV footage of the incident. They also told him that he should expect a letter that might require a court appearance.
There’s no reason a Christian person or any person should have to hide their religion for fear of being attacked by a group of people who can’t control themselves.
Incidents like this have to be reported more and this level of intolerance needs to be brought to the attention of everyone.
