Might this sort of semi explain...
« on: January 04, 2013, 08:30:58 AM »
The crisis in the Greek economy..

Quote
The director, Laertis Vassiliou, says it was like being attacked by a Christian Taliban.

"For two months they were threatening our lives," he says. "Every day there were letters saying, 'You will burn to hell.' They said to my parents that, 'We will bring your son in a box ? cut in pieces and in a box.' "

Archbishop Ieronymos strongly condemned the violence ? though he says the play and the Facebook parody of Elder Paisios are blasphemous.

The state has charged Vassiliou and his cast under the blasphemy law but has dropped the charge against Loizos.

He still faces trial this year for the separate charge of insulting religion ? which carries up to two years in prison.

If their "god" is so small that said god would be worried or offended by a foul word sent their way, I pity such a weak "god."

Well, it's obviously not their concern that god was insulted... any fundamentalist is only concerned about their OWN "sensibilities". IOW, they are conceited, arrogant, and ego-centric. What we SHOULD be hearing from their mouths is "Don't you dare insult MY idea of what god is."

Religion is a convenient medium for such people who want their view to be the only one that every one else should live by. VERY undude, and I believe it's why the old school adamic religions get bashed here...
