Cultural enrichment they say…..
Forced to have guards at baptism
Persons poop on the floor. Masturbating. Trying to take children from the priest or mother during an ongoing baptism. Serious incidents at the Holy Trinity parish has forced the church to have guards.
The congregation’s administrative manager, Bengt Alvland, has listed the various incidents. He is concerned about the development he has seen in recent years, where disruptive people have more and more influenced both church staff and visitors.
The events in recent years have become increasingly serious. During the ordinances of the Church people have yelled loudly and smashed liquor bottles on the floor. It happens that they also both pee and defecate inside and on church grounds. They have climbed on the organ facade and pulpit and they have tried to steal church silver. It has also happened that someone tried to take children from the priest or mother at an ongoing baptism, according Alvlands.
They have found empty liquor bottles and used, bloody needles on the floor under the pews. Organs must be kept locked up so that they do not play on them and disturb visitors.
In addition to that, it has happened that people sat and masturbated in the pews.
– There was one who pulled out his penis. He did not stop despite the fact that a female police officer asked him not to do it, says Bengt Alvland.
