Sydney church stabbing: crowds clash with police after bishop stabbed during mass


Still Waters

Recommended Posts

Hundreds of people reportedly clashed with police in south-west Sydney on Monday night after a prominent Orthodox Christian leader was stabbed at the altar of his church.

Bishop Mar Mari Emmanuel was saying mass at the Assyrian Christ The Good Shepherd Church in Wakeley just after 7pm when a man approached him at the altar and allegedly stabbed toward his head multiple times. Three worshippers were also injured in the alleged attack.

Officers attached to Fairfield police area command attended the church on Welcome Street, Wakeley and a man was arrested and taken into custody.

Second bloke sounds like an Incel Incel - Wikipedia

It will be interesting if the police recover some evidence about this. Bondi Junction, Sydney mall attacker may have targeted women, police say, as more details emerge of his six victims | CNN

And the resultant riot that happened after the priest was attacked? 
Also Incels?

The initial stabbing has just been declared a terrorist incident. 
And the rioters have just been told they’re going to be charged.

The guy is only 15!  It sounds more like someone indoctrinated by family and/or internet and wanting to copycat the Bondi attacker.  At 15 kids are very easily influenced.

We're still pi$$ed off about the last State of Origin result.  It didn't help that the Bondi attacker was also a banana bender.

Yes, of course an 'Incel' well known for their religious intolerance.

We've let all types of human garbage into the country for years, we only have ourselves to blame.

No, you have only your politicians to blame, same here in the UK.

I’m sort of leaning towards “Choir Boy Syndrome” if you get my drift.

It was a religious conflict. More than likely this is a Muslim Christian conflict. The priest slammed Islam on YouTube. This is more likely religious retaliation based on anti Islam messages.

Yes, Apostasy is still practiced by an intolerant religion, even in the 21st century.

A lot of shootings here in the US have been young kids like that too.

He is 40 in the accounts I read:

Five women were among the six people killed by 40-year-old Joel Cauchi when he rampaged through Bondi Junction’s busy Westfield shopping center on Saturday, turning the weekend fall afternoon into a scene of panic and terror.

I see the mistake I made, I thought we were talking about the 40-year-old.

I recall a similar incident in 2017 of an Indian catholic priest Tomy Mathew performing mass in an Australian catholic church being stabbed by a mentally ill person on the delusional reasoning that he is a Hindu /Muslim and not Christian, even though he wore christian priestly robes and performed Mass .

It's unfortunate that priests are now the targets of the mentally ill. 

For his part Father Tomy Mathew stated that he does not have any anger or hatred towards his attacker and was praying for him.

I thought you were referring to the second bloke as an incel (didn't even know what it meant till I looked it up) like the first bloke.  The second bloke is the 15 year old that stabbed the Bishop.

Edit to add.  Just read your following post.
