Are we back with the childish passive-aggressive pseudo-rebels, under cover of intolerance and hatred, under the cover of arson against freedom?

I am not sure how this thread is different from KKK's threads about burning people? Second or third degree (burns) excuse?

Oh get over yourself.

This is all stuff that happened over 20 years ago and if people can make jokes about 9/11 we sure as hell can make jokes about churches being burnt to the ground.

Someone said :

Because I do not smile at arson?
Or because I do not giggle at the though (if there is a though there) that torching places of worship which can often be attached to the main residence of the celebrants is "kool"?

Or because it is easy to pretend to have balls when there is no risk?
Why don't you try and promote mosques burning in Cairo, or synagogue burning in Berlin?
If there was such a thread in the "humour" category * , do you think it would be enough to prevent it from being moderated out?

I am well over myself, because my self does not see criminal fire setting at the risk of killing people based on their faith as a fun alternative joke.

Did you remember that your thread title is calling for a choice?

* This is not categorized as humor, but under general discussions...

I'm not promoting anything, arson is a crime and crimes are generally very, very wrong and these were no exception.


But what's done is done, and I will not mourn the loss of a few dozen churches, not even one that was a few hundred years old.

Fuck that.

Try and create a thread about how seeing the Twin Towers fall made you smile, and ask people "Throwing planes at business centers, yeah or nay".

Not promoting it?
The past tells me that you would not do it, but you utterly enjoy the idea of others having the guts to do it for you, even if you think that it is not necessary...

In what world could it be considered a good thing?

This world.

Someone said :

I tend to agree with you. However I think the wave of church burnings in Norway in the early nineties was largely a good thing. It sent out a message no one could ignore. "Your churches are worthless and so is your god and we have no respect whatsoever for you and what you stand for".


It wouldn't be necessary to do it now though, I don't think. It would be awesome but probably redundant. No one in their right minds has any respect left for organised religion.

Someone said :

Oh puh-lease! I've always been on the right side of the law and I'm gonna keep it that way. I don't even do illegal music downloads, I'm hardly gonna torch a building...


I won't really blame other people for doing it though... I don't really think it's necessary to do it but if someone does feel like burning one of them places to the ground, well that's their issue. [...]

Someone said :
It is, but I just can't help it. A burning church cheers me up to no end!

Someone said :

No, the thing is Christian was introduced by force and through the mass persecution and murder of Pagans. If some people down the line take exception to that and decide to burn a few churches
no one should be surprised

Someone said :
[...]
Two wrongs don' make a right but make you feel a whole lot better!

Someone said :
No, this book is about the past, the ancient past. It's a painstakingly researched and wide ranging volume on ancient European culture and religion and I cannot wait to get my hands on it.


Though in a way it informs on the why he saw fit to torch those churches, one has only to think for one second of all that was lost to reach for the matches and petrol....

Someone said :
Whateves, I just like seeing churches goin up in flames. So sue me!



"A good thing in theory, if could manage to avoid deaths"
Someone said :

No. Sadly I think one firefighter did die in one of these fires. Which is why I believe that while in theory burning churches is an excellent idea, in reality it's a big no no.

So a big no no that makes you smile.

Interesting how deep the thought process of church burners can go.
And that's only scratching the surface...

Quite.

You love being offended and picking stuff apart for sport.


I do not give two flying fucks about your opinions, I have better uses of my time.

You know approximately zero about what went on in Norway back then so not even an idiot would take you seriously on this.

What did I just read?

Rightly or wrongly, I took this thread as satire based on actual events, and enjoyed it as such.

Take this seriously? no, just no.

Edit: Not sure if satire is the right word here, hope you get what I'm trying to say.

The beautiful but depressing Icelandic film "Metalhead" is partly inspired by the events in Norway. The full film is on Youtube:

There also documentaries like "Until the Light Takes Us"

Either of these are fascinating, for me anyway. They played the last one in the Wacken Open Air cinema screen and there was a applause every time a church went up in flames. So, I ma deffo not the only one.

Glasnevin cemetary got vandalised over the weekend. Would you support that also Frodo? Also the tabernacle in Longford got stolen and they wrecked the church. Is that good?

One of Ireland's largest churches, in Finglas in North Dublin, built for 3,500 massgoers, is to be demolished and replaced with a much smaller structure given rapidly dwindling numbers attending mass.

More of this to come in the years ahead?
