A com­mu­nity on Crete is reel­ing in shock af­ter un­known as­sailants defecated on icons and the al­tar of their lo­cal church. The in­ci­dent oc­curred at the Church of Aghia Pe­la­gia in the Pachia Am­mos re­gion of La­sithi. It was the lat­est in a se­ries of in­ci­dents at churches in Ha­nia, Rethymno and Irak­lio in­volv­ing defe­ca­tion on icons and the spray­ing of of­fen­sive slo­gans against Chris­tians on church walls. In a sim­i­lar at­tack in Irak­lio last month, as­sailants defecated on 13 icons and on the main al­tar and sprayed slo­gans on the walls read­ing “S..t to Chris­tians” and “Zeus is buy­ing."
