Rip Notre Dame Cathedral

Recommended Posts

R.I.P Notre Dame Cathedral, April 15, 2019

 

It's currently burning in Paris, France.

 

For all of you French people and tourists on GFL, I'm with you, and hoping for the best.

Little, but delayed update: The Notre Dame Cathedral has, in fact, been "secured", which was thought to be impossible in the last few minutes of the blaze. Fortunately, the large, famous rose stained glass is still intact with minor damage (the stained glass behind the high altar too) and many priceless artefacts have been retrieved.

 

President Emmanuel Macron hopes to rebuild the Notre Dame within 5 years; there have already been 900 million dollars donated in the first 2 days with the support of 3 French billionaires and Ubisoft, who have donated 500,000 dollars due to them being a French company (they will also be helping the reconstruct the Notre Dame with the help of 3D mapping from Assassin's Creed).

Stained-glass windows behind the altar still intact after the fire.

the catholic church is literally the worlds biggest charity organization and have around 6500 hospitals in third world countries, they save tens of thousands lives every year and have improved standards of living in some of the poorest places on earth

detesting the church because of its scandals and that they dont like gays is retarded

Pretty much. This isn't the 1400s scam artist Catholic Church, nor is it the 1900s fascist-sympathising Catholic Church. Even if their charity work simply isn't out of the goodness of their hearts (it's ironically what puts them in business), it's there nonetheless. The modern Catholic Church is mostly harmless, which people ought to compare and contrast with many Protestant denominations which are a great deal more extreme.

I feel the same about ALL organized religion. They are all corrupt, violent, and hypocritical, in my opinion. They prey on weak-minded people.

How are they violent?

How are they hypocritical?

How are they corrupt?

I don't believe in religion, there is far more religion than just Christianity and Islam, also if you look at it one religion is a party in 99% of religious conflict while also being a majority of all religious violence.

You're citing wikipedia which cites hundred year old events for it's argument.

Nearly all christian sects follow the new testament not the old one.

The second link is an opinion piece that cites the killing of Jews for poisoning the well, which first of all actually happened and secondly wasn't to do with religion but rather if someone poisons your people you don't take kindly to them regardless of religion.

 

Source: https://faculty.humanities.uci.edu/bjbecker/PlaguesandPeople/week2c.html

 

Your third link you didn't even read, you just googled "Christianity and violence" and copy pasted what looked legitimate, first of all the author is a protestant secondly

It literally says

> In this essay I will contest the claim that the Christian faith, as one of the major world religions, predominantly fosters violence, and argue that it should be seen as a contributor to more peaceful social environments.

Your 4th link has no information to back up it's claim that most wars are because of Christianity which is completely false.

Your 5th link is another opinion piece article and a poorly written one at that

> it [Christianity] has been complicit in horrific and systemic violence across history, from the Crusades to the Inquisition to the Nazis

This is completely false, Nazism denounced Christianity.

https://books.google.com.sg/books?redir_esc=y&id=ATCXucbTYX0C&q=Consequently%2C+it+was+Hitler's+long+range+goal+to+eliminate+the+churches+once+he+had+consolidated+control+over+his+European+empire

"Consequently, it was Hitler's long range goal to eliminate the churches once he had consolidated control over his European empire"

You didn't read your 6th link as it's pointing out the absurdity of the UK government banning someone from entering the UK because they're chrisitian, the ruling was also overturned and he was allowed into the country.

Your 7th link is once again defending Christianity, you didn't bother to read it either.

>As for anarchist literature being " the best source for information" - You just keep on reading/believing the mainstream press, and your "church".

I don't rely on MSM or the church, I certainly wouldn't quote anarchist literature on why religion is bad, it's like quoting the Catholic Church on why Atheism is bad.

 

The irony of you calling me a sheep when you are too stupid to even bother to read your links rather than just looking at the title and thinking it agrees with you.
