  1. Christenpesten in een christenland: een (paas)eitje. Ongelofelijk dat men nog de moeite neemt om opgewonden te raken van extragratis provocatie.

    Overigens is de kunstenaar in kwestie ook bedreven met kaas en stront en ham. Thematisch valt deze chocozoon nauwelijks buiten de boot.

  2. Opwinding over de opwinding, uit het commentaar bij de NY Daily: “I don’t understand why people think that white is right and black is not.”

    Most worrying, for me, is the fact that NY daily has chosen to consider ‘Catholic Outrage’ worthy front page news.

    I can’t help but think that this decision to give a prominent platform to a medieval mindset reinforces the sense of righteous victimhood amongst the strongly religious. Perhaps ignoring it would be in our (cvilisation’s) better interest.
