Muslim man dances on altar

| | Comments (2)
On October 11, a Muslim managed to get up and dance on the altar of the Florence's Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore, the famed cathedral church of the Archdiocese of Florence.

Apparently, the man brought his ghetto blaster to the cathedral and played Michael Jackson's song, "Bad."

Here are the  pictures of this unbelievable event. The perpetrator does not speak Italian, but it's reported that he prayed several time in Arabic.

Interesting...I am not sure what to make of this act of disrespect. Surely this man was out of his mind, right? Is this the result of the multiculturalism that the liberal West promotes and condones as a matter of religious freedom? What would Whoopi Goldberg say about this event? Could she bring herself to re-think her objections to Bill O'Reilly's ideas the day when she stormed off the stage on live TV?

Where is the Christian protest? Why are the Catholics of Florence so quiet about this act of insensitivity??? Please tell me!
