Bishop Mar Mari Emmanuel was stabbed during a church service at the Christ the Good Shepherd Church in Wakeley. The incident, captured on the church's livestream, saw the bishop attacked by a 15-year-old boy who approached him at the altar and stabbed him multiple times in the head and upper body. Despite the ordeal, the bishop prayed for his alleged attacker shortly after the assault, as reported by The Daily Mail Australia.
Following the stabbing, a crowd of approximately 2000 people gathered near the church, leading to riots and a struggle for police to maintain order. The attacker, known to police, sustained serious hand injuries during the altercation, with rumors circulating that one of his fingers may have been severed. Subsequently, police officers were forced to barricade themselves inside the church with the assailant for several hours as violence persisted outside.
Acting Assistant Commissioner Andrew Holland of NSW Police told the Daily Mail Australia, "Reports are that he has injuries to his hands; I don't know the extent of those injuries at this point. His injuries are fairly severe in his hand, and he's fairly upset and distraught."
Bishop Mar Mari Emmanuel had previously gained attention for his critical views on pandemic-related measures, including lockdowns and vaccines, and his belief that Covid was akin to a seasonal flu.
According to his pastoral message on the website, "We believe that coming into the truth is the most fundamental and important insight in our time and age. The human race is inundated with so much information that we frequently lose our sense of orientation in differentiating between the truth and lies."
