‘They’ll lynch us!’, Catholics beg for assistance in evicting illegal migrants

A dire note as the year begins.

First, from Express about Catholics under siege at a parish near Milan.

‘They’ll LYNCH us!’ Church PLEADS with police for assistance in evicting migrants

A CHRISTIAN priest has pleaded for help in evicting a group of migrants squatting in a nearby building – with the church warning “we can’t wait for them to come and lynch us”.

They said the group of “North Africans” were chasing church-goers, scaring children and putting the area “under siege”.

They also said a collection box at the church in Italy had been forced open – sparking a furious reaction from Father Francesco Inversini.

He said the migrants, sheltering in a building near the church of Cristo Re in Milan were “free to do” anything.

The church’s administrator, who only wanted to be identified as Tommasso for fear of reprisals, went further.

He warned the migrants were part of an ongoing crime spree in the area – and claimed the church’s staff could be lynched if police do not do anything.

Tommasso said: “I do not say my name because those guys can kill me, but here, parents and parishioners are angry.

There’s some video.

Sts. Nunilo and Alodia, pray for us.
St. Lawrence of Brindisi, pray for us.
St. Pius V, pray for us.

    s the suggestion that the police won’t help? Why should the immigrants want to lynch anybody?
    They come to Europe to try to survive, not to murder people.
    If they are breaking the law, the police will deal with them. I can’t imagine Italian police taking the migrants’ side against the local people. Can you?

    “They said the group of “North Africans” were chasing church-goers, scaring children and putting the area “under siege”.”
    How is it “under siege?” What do the parishioners mean by squatting “nearby?” Next door, or two streets away?
    “They also said a collection box at the church in Italy had been forced open – “
    An outrage that had never happened before in Italy, until the migrants came.
    Of course, there is no doubt the migrants did it.

    This is an appalling and disgusting story. The kind of scaremongering we used to get against the Jews – based entirely on hearsay and rumour. CP&S should be ashamed of itself.

    This is an old story. It’s probably even worse now.

    Is there any indication in the story that the migrants have ever laid one single finger on anybody? If there is, I missed it.
    Yes, go to the vile Express site and look at the pictures there. These are poor, miserable, homeless, hopeless. penniless, victimised, people – living infinitely worse lives than my dogs.
    Maybe the church should have emptied the poor box, and given the money in there to them.
    …But I don’t know.
    However, very sincere thanks to CP&S for running my comment above.
    It was a decent, and really quite brave, decision – in my opinion.

    (Toad is getting far too preachy these days. And not funny enough.)
