Australian Christians told not to wear cross after Muslims attack man wearing crucifix, yelling ‘F*ck Jesus’

Miranda Devine reports for Daily Telegraph that at about 3 p.m. on April 4, 2017, while traveling with his girlfriend on the train from Campsie to Bankstown in southwestern Sydney, a 30-year-old Greek Orthodox Christian named Mike (he doesn’t want his last name made public due to safety concerns) was assaulted by four Middle Eastern men.

Mike says he was minding his own business talking on his mobile phone, when four young men of Middle Eastern appearance violently ripped the crucifix off his neck and stomped on it, while swearing “F*** Jesus” and referring to “Allah”. The men then punched Mike and kicked him in his face, back and shoulders.

When his girlfriend tried to defend him, two Arabic-speaking women hit and kicked her.

The crucifix, which Mike’s mother had given him, was bent, and the silver chain broken in two places. Mike says: “I was born in Australia of Greek heritage. I’ve always worn my cross. For him to rip it off and step on it has to be a religious crime… It’s not on to feel unsafe in your own country.”

Mike has a doctor’s report cataloguing his injuries, which include abrasions and bruises on his face, left shoulder, and upper and lower back.

Mike says that five uniformed railway “Transport Officers” watched the attack and did nothing to help him, although police were waiting for the train when it reached Bankstown station.

Two police officers took the names of three alleged assailants and a statement from Mike, photographed his injuries, told him they would review CCTV footage from the train and that he should expect a letter in a month, which may require his attendance at court.

After the assault, Mike was so shaken up that he contacted Baptist minister Rev. George Capsis, a pillar of the local Greek community and former deputy mayor of Sutherland Shire Council.

According to Rev. Capsis, Mike is the fourth Christian who has complained to him of a religiously-motivated attack in the past six months. The other three attacks also were in public transport, in southwest Sydney described by Capsis as Muslim territory — “It’s like their territory; they don’t want Christians or other types of infidels there.”

Rev. Capsis warns Christians not to wear overt religious symbols like the cross when they are traveling though Muslim enclaves of southwestern Sydney:

“This is not an isolated incident. There are gangs of these young fellows of Muslim background who have been harassing people they identify as Christian… You don’t hear about it because no one’s reporting it. People like Greek Orthodox carry a big cross. I tell them to be practical and if they’re in those areas and wearing a big cross and a group of young guys comes, hide it in your shirt. Why provoke it? If this keeps up, someone will be hurt. It’s got to be nipped in the bud.”

A Sydney Trains spokesman defended the inaction of its Transport Officers, saying they are not authorized to intervene in assaults and that their primary responsibilities are customer service and fare evasion. If an incident takes place, such as the attack on Mike, the officers are trained to stand back in a “safe space” to observe, and contact police if necessary.

Mike says he and his girlfriend are now too scared to catch the train.

Daily Telegraph points out that:

  • There have been isolated reports of anti-Christian abuse in recent years, such as churchgoers in western Sydney getting death threats from men driving past in a car bearing the Islamic State flag.
  • Christians also increasingly are fair game for intimidation by the militant LGBTI lobby.
  • But Christophobia is downplayed by the authorities. As an example, when the Australian Christian Lobby was car-bombed late last year, police within hours declared that the attack was not religiously, ideologically or politically motivated.
  • The only religious bigotry that is publicized is Islamophobia.

  3. I hope poor Mike isn’t expecting any kind of Justice anytime soon.
    I get it the transit “cops” aren’t suppose to do much, but they could have placed themselves between the thugs and the victim.
    Since when does Islamic thugs get to trump anyone Christian.
    Australia will rue the day, they are letting this escalate.
    The last eight years of damage will take us decades to correct.

  4. I will NOT hide my cross to please some other religion or any government. The three transit police that did nothing to protect the rider from being attacked would be looking for new jobs. If the government doesn’t prosecute the scum pigs that attacked the rider over his cross will be asking for this type of garbage to be inflicted on all their citizens. I have nothing against muslims, but I will NOT hide my JESUS from anybody as I am NOT ASHAMED of HIM.

  5. It seems to me, given the Muslim invasion of the rest of the world (almost), that the Devil is gearing up for what will be his final battle. Of course the police did nothing: In all likelihood, few of them are armed, either.

  7. This just makes me ill. It would not be happening unless our hostile elite politicians and courts were not signaling constantly to these neanderthals that this is perfectly fine behavior. The media and the politicians constantly signal as well who they support with all their screeching that “islamophobia” will not be tolerated. Where do you hear a message that brutalizing Christian’s will not be tolerated, and if you do you will be deported or jailed?I’m afraid we are absolutely being sold down the drain by our own, and the future looks rather grim.

  9. Did you EVER know or wonder why almost ALL Korean Christians are Presbyterian? It’s b/c once, all the Presbyterian volunteers/missionaries, et al, were beheaded in Korea at the order of the–then–Korean ruler. When the US Pesbytery headquarters in the USA asked amongst their “flock” WHO would volunteer to replace them…they were OVERWHELMED with volunteers and the Korean peninsula was FLOODED with Presbyterian missionaries….

    Australian Christians could take a lesson from this……saturate your country with Christian crosses….over the top…..to a degree where no one, not even a terrorist…could single out any ONE individual…….

  12. I used to live in Bankstown. It used to be a safe area. I am sad to hear the area is being overrun by muslims. They don’t belong in Australia. Even more disturbing that the transit authorities looked on while the Christians were being assaulted. Christians should never be told to hide their crosses 😦

  13. Australia is part of the British Commonwealth and led by its Royals. The anti-Christian pro-Islamic policies would stop at once if the Queen truly represented and was a leader of a Christian church. It would not happen if QE II did not approve. Minions of the Beast are at work, it will get worse every day if they have their Satanic way. Choose you this day whom you will serve.
