Doubtful business? Rainbow painting on the summit cross in Austria

Published

on

The rainbow flag means acceptance and diversity. Last week, outsiders painted exactly this symbol on the crest cross on Kleiner Sonnstein in Austria. Not everyone likes that…

There is great enthusiasm in social networks, and the police in Upper Austria are already investigating.

“The summit cross has been defaced – the police are asking for evidence,” police said in a press release from the Upper Austria Police Force on Monday. Moreover: “So far unknown assailants have drawn a crest cross on Kleiner Sonnstein in Traunkirchen. The act is likely to have been committed on September 23, 2021.”

The truth is: It’s property damage – that’s why it’s being investigated! She added that “information relevant to the investigation of the perpetrators” will be treated confidentially.

Mountaineer posts a picture on Facebook

“Who came up with the idea that the summit cross was deformed in this way? I’m so upset now. Not only is the cross on the summit not deformed, it’s not very well made,” says annoying mountaineer Lisbeth Gruber on Facebook.

“It doesn’t matter what the rainbow symbolizes, whether it’s an association or something else, whether it’s meant well or not, it has nothing to do with it. This is property damage and it’s actually notifiable. For those who did, I’d sandpaper on the cross with sandpaper and repainted.”

Her photo quickly went viral on social media and got all kinds of outrageous comments. “It bothers me too, voi!” and “Very inappropriate! Unbelievable,” users write under it.

Another commented more positively: “The symbol representing charity has been smeared with a symbol representing openness and tolerance. There are things that are really worse and they don’t bother me either.”

Gruber stays with her: It concerns someone else’s property and “mass tourism” in the mountains leads to such actions. “A person who likes to go to the mountain regularly to find peace and relaxation would never think of such work.”

Mountain rescue eased: “We’re waiting for the next rain.”

The mountain rescue service in Traunkirchen erected a wooden cross at a height of 923 meters. Local branch manager Peter Bangerl told Oberösterreichische Nachrichten: “The colors are basically a good reason, only the symbol could have been set differently. But we see it quite calmly and wait for the next rain.”

Then it could look like this again soon:

5:01 am: Study: Corona reduces life expectancy similar to World War II

In the wake of the Corona pandemic, according to a study, life expectancy in many countries has fallen more sharply than it has in Western Europe since World War II. In some countries, researchers from the University of Oxford’s Leverholm Center for Demographic Sciences report in the “International Journal of Epidemiology” that progress in the past few years has been devastated in short order. Therefore, the decrease in the number of men was greater than in women.

For the study, scientists examined data from 29 countries, mostly from Europe, including Germany, as well as Chile and the USA. In 2020, life expectancy fell in 27 of these countries, and by at least half a year in 22 countries. “In Western European countries such as Spain, England, Wales, Italy and Belgium, this decline in life expectancy at one year at the time of birth was observed during World War II,” co-author José Manuel Oporto said. Life expectancy for males in the United States has decreased – 2.2 years compared to 2019.
