From BBC News:
A Methodist minister has been sent hate mail because he has allowed his church in Greater Manchester to be used by a group helping refugees.
Reverend Phil Mason, from The Victoria Hall in Bolton, said he was concerned for his family after receiving the notes in the last few months.
But despite their abusive nature, he said he had forgiven the authors.
The hall supports the Befriending Refugees and Asylum Seekers group, which runs a weekly drop-in session.
“It’s very hard when you open a letter and you see some of the aggressive language that’s put in there,” Mr Mason told BBC Radio Manchester.
“Your stomach turns and your immediate thought is concern about the safety of the family and yourself.
“But then you begin to see beyond the language and just realise that people’s perceptions of asylum seekers and refugees are very distorted.”
Mr Mason has not reported the incidents to Greater Manchester Police, despite the offensive content of the letters.
