A large Christian cross on the Greek island of Lesbos was torn down after refugee organization claimed it was “offensive” to newly arriving Muslim migrants.

The cross, which was erected on the cliffs of Apellia, beneath the castle of Mytilene, was toppled after a group claiming to promote “intercultural coexistence” said it was an insult to migrants who had drowned in the sea and may cause offense to those swimming nearby.

Lesbos has been at the epicenter of the migrants crisis, with hundreds of asylum seekers still arriving every week, prompting angry clashes.

The pro-refugee group sent a letter to the Harbour Minister of Lesbos and the Mayor of Lesbos stating, “A few days ago they placed at Apeli of Mytilene a large cross, in order to prevent other people (refugees and migrants) from coming to swim. This act is illegal, unsightly (reminiscent of a grave) but mostly offensive to the symbol of Christianity, a symbol of love and sacrifice, not racism and intolerance.”

The group also claimed that the cross represented “a tool of aspiring crusaders.” It was toppled a few days after the letter was sent.

According to the Greek City Times, the removal of the cross, “caused strong reactions from locals who believe it goes against the religious beliefs of the majority of the inhabitants on the island.”

This is not the first time that Christian symbols have been removed so as not to offend or upset newly arrived migrants or non-Christians.

Back in 2015, a protestant church in Oberhausen, Germany removed Christian crosses, altars and pulpits in order to accommodate 50 Muslim migrants who were invited to stay in the building.

Earlier in the same month, the world’s first lesbian Bishop Eva Brunne suggested removing Christian crosses and symbols from a church in Stockholm, Sweden in order to make the building “more inviting” for Muslims.

    Okay picture it ….. You’re in Greece, NOT a middle eastern Arab country. Greece is a Christian nation. Some migrant arrives and because they “may be” offended the nation bows. Try going to Saudi Arabia or some other Arab nation and attempt to pull down all the crescent moons and see what happens. PEOPLE ARE SO IDIOT STUPID IT AMAZES ME. WAKE UP!!!!!!!!!!! Take God and Jesus Christ out of a Nation and it WILL deteriorate. Look what has happened to this Country because of one woman, Madaline Murray O’Hare.
