Normally I don't cruise around this forum and participate as I am fairly neutral when it comes to religion... (although not neutral at all when it
comes to the severe damage that religion can cause to peoples lives)
But... I thought that this little snippet of information might interest some people on this forum and create intelligent conversation and debate
without the "I am higher than thou" attitude from some people or "the what a load of bulls testicles" from others (or any type of trolling in general
for that matter...) :
Giant wooden crucifix kills man at ceremony to honour late pope John Paul II’s canonisation
A piece of the 30-metre-high wooden cross fell during the event near an Alpine village, killing the young man on the spot, Italian media reported.
The Jesus Christ statue on the cross is six metres high and weighs 600kg and the crucifix was curved and fixed to the ground with cables, the reports
Marco Gusmini, 21, was visiting the area with other young Catholics when the accident occurred.
at 20 or 21 years old.
Mayor Silvio Citroni said: “A young life, so many hopes destroyed.”
“The young people were making a snack for lunch and when they heard the crunching noises coming from the cross they fled in all directions.
Unfortunately Marco ran in the wrong direction.”
The accident has raised comments about ‘ill omens’ as Italy prepares for the canonisation of the late Pope.
More information on the event here :
So... An Ill Omen to a poor believer on "Gods" behalf... or just woodworm/bad craftsmanship?... I go for the latter...
I would like to add as I am sure some posters might start getting all stroppy :
Sincere condolances to the family and loved ones of the deceased but maybe people should open their eyes REALLY WIDE and take off those blinkers and
ear mufflers and have a (n) "If possible" listen to "rational and logical" people and look at the hundreds and/or thousands of innocent children as
well as civilians that are maimed and killed every day all in the name of whatever RELIGION suits the cause of the warmongers... (and Geopolitical
RELIGION... what a hypocritical waste of innocent lives...
