Area of case: Anti-Religion or humanism groups / Private



Police suspect leftist activists were responsible for the vandalism of four Munich-area churches that left parishioners outraged and dismayed. Slogans such as "Burn the churches down" and "Neither God nor master - destroy the patriarchy" were painted on the entrances of the churches resulting in thousands of euros in damage.

The affected churches were: St.-Theresia-Pfarrkirche in Neuhausen, Sankt-Korbinian-Pfarrkirche in Untersendling, Sankt-Georg-Kirche and Sankt-Lantpert-Pfarrkirche in Milbertshofen. 


Police considered the incident politically-motivated and likely perpetrated by leftist activists.
