Amsterdam, Netherlands, Aug 4, 2009 / 01:07 am
The Amsterdam offices of an organizer for the upcoming World Congress of Families were defaced with paint and vandalized with obscenities and anti-Christian slogans last Thursday, prompting the pro-family conference’s leaders to pledge they will not be intimidated by “radical opposition.”
The World Congress of Families V (WCF V) is to take place in Amsterdam on August 10-12 at the RAI Centre. In its pamphlet for the event, the Congress describes itself as the world’s largest gathering of pro-family leaders and grass-roots activists. It bills the event as “the most exciting and inspiring international pro-family event of the year.”
On July 30, the Amsterdam building of EuroCongress, the professional conference organizer for the event, was defaced by unknown vandals.
The Dutch Chairman of WCF V, Simon Polinder, said the vandalism was “really outrageous.”
