Occupiers Accused of Desecrating Churches in NYC That Took Them In

"It was like pissing on the 99%."

Since Zuccotti Park and New York City ended the overnight stays of the Occupy Wall Street crowds, the protesters have been sleeping anywhere they can. Some have been taken in by local supporters while others have been able to sleep in area churches. However, thanks to serious allegations of vandalism and desecration, the churches have begun to close their doors to the occupiers.

The New York Post reports that the sacred baptismal font of the West Park Presbyterian Church on 86th Street was vandalized just three weeks after an expensive MacBook laptop went missing from the church office.

Rev. Bob Brashear has been hosting upwards of 60 occupiers each night, allowing them to sleep between the pews. But the welcome mat has been rolled up and the pastor has given the protesters two weeks notice to find another place to sleep.

Brashear's message to the occupiers:

"It was like pissing on the 99%."

Rabbi Chaim Gruber of Brooklyn also sent a note to the Post claiming that occupiers have defiled a church in the area:

"The Park Slope church housing occupiers was desecrated when an occupier peed inside the building and the pee came in contact with a cross."

The Blaze has reached out to Rabbie Gruber and Rev. Brashear for additional information on both the vandalized baptismal font and the stolen computer. When we have more information we will add it.
