Four churches in Iceland were vandalized with anti-religious and anti-God graffiti:
Vulgar and blasphemous messages were spray-painted on the walls of Akureyri Church, North Iceland, overnight, according to RÚV. The incident has been reported to police.
Svavar Alfreð Jónsson, minister at the church, was shocked to see what had been done, but a funeral is planned at the church today. Svavar posted pictures of the vandalism on his Facebook page this morning. Both the front and south sides of the church were spray-painted in numerous places.
Some of the messages included “Religion is slavery” and “God is a cunt.”
We can’t say for sure that atheists did this, but I would not be surprised given the hateful nature of the atheist movement’s anti-religious rhetoric over the years. For example, the vandal’s message that “Religion is slavery” is essentially the same message the FFRF tried to spread with the Christmas season signs: “Religion is but myth and superstition that burdens our hearts and enslaves our minds.”
Actvist Hemant Mehta is the only atheist activist to have denounced this, but his criticism is quite meek, brief, and mild and probably exists only because someone on twitter goaded him into it.
