  • Some of the commenters contributing at present clearly don't understand the distinction between items which are no longer being used for ritual purposes can be misused and abused.

    I think the irrationality of those making the comments are pretty indicative of the self-satisfied owners who believe that because the items have been "de-sanctifying" that they are justified in doing whatever they want to do to them in a public space, including showing disrespect to these items.

    Sacrilege is defined by Merriam Webster:

    1  : a technical and not necessarily intrinsically outrageous violation (as improper reception of a sacrament) of what is sacred because consecrated to God
    2
    : gross irreverence toward a hallowed person, place, or thing

    [Another good definition, I think is the willful and malicious confusing of the profane and the divine]

  • Reading and responding to the comments is a real meditation on the via dolorosa.

  • Obviously, if you insult Jews or Muslims, it may not only be physically dangerous to do so, but you can also lose your liquor license and find yourself out of business for offending such as they. Since the state of journalism is so poor at the anti-Clerical paper, we've sought to augment it by our own contribution.
