no mention of hate crimes here....

Nope never. When Christian churches are desecrated it's never a hate crime, only "vandalism"



A shrine that stood in Whitney Pier, N.S. for fewer than five days has been burned to the ground.

The shrine was built as part of the 100th anniversary celebrations for St. Mary's Polish Church and was modelled after similar shrines in Poland and the Ukraine.

The wooden structure was inscribed in both Polish and Ukranian with the phrase "Peace be with you." It was blessed and dedicated on Sunday.

People found its burned remains on Thursday.

Hate speech

Actually this does sound more like vandals than a hate crime. All too often we associate
acts with hate crimes when they are not. had this been someone out to hate Polish folks
and they burned down the shrine that would be a hate crime. In this case it sounds to me
like a bunch of mean spirited little buggers with nothing better to do.
Good reason for saying that, even if somebody didn't like it, it contained a statue of the
Mary and that would not be good tidings to torch it as the folks on Cape Breton are primarily
Catholic by heritage.
This does sound like vandals with nothing better to do than ruin life for everyone else. Besides
to plan a hate crime it would take a certain amount of knowledge something these people who
did this have none. A brainless act

Nonsense. Clearly it was the nefarious work of Al Qaeda in Cape Breton (Al Qaeda dans Cap Breton).

People usually like to leave a statement announcing what sort of hate they are using in hate crimes. Vandals don't bother, they just destroy stuff.

This's freakin pathetic either way.

I thought burning was more an IRA thing.

Every time I click on a link from Blazing Cat Fur, I get a malware warning from my anti-virus.

Not only is this website making you stupid, it's also giving you viruses.

The only problem is... you have a "Progressive anti-vir" or a BS one

I love the idea of it being Muslim Terrorists, can you imagine the reception
those folks would get pulling something on Cape Breton Island? Now
having been born there and knowing a bit about the area I would pay money
to see what they would do to a few terrorists There would be real A** kicking
that day

Who is the first bigot that mentioned "Muslim" or equivalent in this thread??????

Edit: I just checked....It's someone that likes to throw around the epithet Bigot or Racist at anyone that doesn't agree with her.....

I'm curious as to why you are still here if you feel that CC makes one stupid and is full of malware?



btw, the crap anti virus you are using is giving you false positives.

It might be. But, you know, I thought I'd do a good deed and let you people know.

Norton used to give me a false positive, when I converted videos using "Super C" for uploading to youtube, I would get an alert as soon as the video finished converting....
Got rid of Norton and switched to AVG "The paid version"
I do get the odd spyware alert and quarantined... and every one of them I checked with other sources and were valid..
And there is no need for the one who gave the warning to go back to the site
A copy of his/her antivir log data of the occurrence.would do just fine...

any anti VIRUS WHICH indicates BCF's site as 'do not enter' is obviously an advanced technological achievement well worth its price.

Good one....
I can actually get into BCF's site- just every time I do, I wish I hadn't...
I'd ask the fora what that makes me...
Except I'm scared of the answers I'd get...
