|Another facinating encounter with the local Turkish population today.
After going to Church this morning, my wife and I decided to visit the neighbouring town. Whilst there we walked up to the local church which is famed for its beauty. Inside we went and took a look around before sitting down to prayer.
Once inside, we heard a number of youths walk in, two young men and two young women. Shouting and laughing very loudly, we simply assumed them to be rude.
Then, whilst praying, they walked into our section of the Church and started yelling and playing about the Church. My wife turned around and asked them to be quiet because people were praying. One of the girls called back at her and my wife asked again to be quiet. One of the young men turned around and responded to my wife "I don't want to hear a another word from you!" in a threating tone.
When my wife and I were ready to leave, we walked past them as we walked down the stairs inside the Church, I first followed by my wife. The young man who had threatened earlier stared at her threateningly. I stared back at him. He noticed and asked "What? do you want something from me!?" I said to him "Yeah, some respect - this is a place of worship."
He kept saying to his friend "let's give him one, let's give him one!" I looked at him and being angry, responded in English that he had no respect. He spoke something incoherrently and said "I'm Turkish so let's speak Turkish". I thought to myself 'you look like a Turkey' and walked away, leaving the Church.
Bad enough that they were loud, even worse that they were disrespectful to worshipers but then to threaten people inside the Church is simply sacrilige. In my less responsible days I would have invited him outside to pound him.
I have a question and it's why youth of Turkish extraction feel like they, non-Christians, can walk into a Church of all places disrespect the place and then threaten Christians inside without one ounce of respect for anything, expect to be welcomed into general society.
Unfortunately, today was just one of many unfortunate experiences that I've had with Turkish/Islamic youth. But today was my near my breaking point. Scum like that should be deported. Turks do everything they can to leave their country for a better life elsewhere and then, when they get there, they treat the locals and their society like dirt.
And you wonder why Europe wants nothing to do with you! If you don't respect other cultures, societies and faiths then leave and don't return!
