Don Paolo Farinella, parish priest in San Torpete, Genoa, has decided not to make a Christmas crib this year - to show solidarity with Muslims.
This year I haven't made the crib. In protest. Against those who spit on something sacred, a symbol of love and togetherness. I don't want to have anything to do with Salvini (who after the Paris massacre said: 'We make the crib so as not to surrender'). So, it's decided, no crib in my church."Source
Salvini is Matteo Salvini, leader of the anti-immigration Northern League party.
