Who is the mainstream American Right?
People commit suicide everyday, each is tragic in its own right......the person who kills themselves is not inherently special they are disturbed.
Why would nay media cover the act? (Yes, I read the article)
Respectfully this article is a bunch of bologna meant to make the author sound enlightened. The beauty of Notre Dame cathedral rests not in its design but in its intent to glorify God.
It appears this unfortunate soul had a messiah complex and felt himself somehow an improvement upon the sacrifice of the holy mass. God himself is offered as the perfect sacrifice upon which this man showed no humility or respect for the son of man. This was an evil act... that mocks the true sacrifice made on cavalry.
Awesome article. The West Had better wake up before we loose our civilization to these animals.
He sure can’t change his mind now...
I don’t see anything in Scripture that authorizes us to kill ourselves because of the sinful world around us. We are instead instructed to pray, do what we can about the situation to the extent it is proper for believers to do so (e.g., publicly assert God’s position on the matter), but ultimately leave it to God.
Suicide is ALWAYS a SELFISH ACT!! God will deal with him.
Sounds like something is wrong with the reasoning faculty of this man.
If he wore the robes of a Buddhist monk and somehow involved fire in this, maybe it would be iconic, rather than ignored.
This is what gets me about Free Republic. An obviously intelligent man commits an act of extreme sacrifice to draw attention to a problem, and we have people arguing over everything but the point of the story. Why? Why did he take his own life? This is the point to ponder. Some of the people on Free Republic could have been at the celebration where Jesus turned the water into wine, and they would have complained about the vintage and given everyone a dissertation on their knowledge of how the weather affects wine.
The best way to die is to parachute into the Middle East and start preaching The Gospel.
I’m sorry about the fella, but despair is a sin. No matter how bad things are socio-politically, we can receive Faith, Hope, and Love through the Holy Spirit, and we can live Faith, Hope, and Love in any circumstances.
Venner’s death will have but one reaction — Muslims will be high-fiving each other.
Venner did not accomplish what he had hoped for. Sadly enough, he will be forgotten tomorrow.
I am living in France.
I heard about his suicide, and immediatley questioned anyone’s claim to “a culture”.
So, picture Notre Dame, in Paris.
Pretty much takes up the entire skyline, based off what angle you are viewing it from, right?
Now...picture a mosque, BIGGER than Notre Dame, being built directly adjacent to it...like it or not, that’s what’s gonna happen...look it up.
I don’t support or endorse suicide, at all, but they guy’s got a point, OK? An affront to history is an affront to history.
To me, there was instantly and undercurrent to this story that wasn’t covered at all.
Either this man had homosexual children who were being led astray or a homosexual wife who was choosing to live with another woman rather than with him.
Very sad story.
Why did you post this? The article has faulty thinking from beginning to end.
1. He was French.
2. What kind of arrogance would one possess to comit such an act of sacrilege and force his act on the rest of us?
Bad enough he took his own life but, as far as I’m concerned good riddance
The Right, especially the "Palaeo" Right, is full of this type of subjective ethnolatry. Venner's words show that, like any liberal atheist, his ideals were mere groundless constructs of his own mind and his own choosing.
Unfortunately, it is ingrained into us to think of various ethno-cultures creating various religions from their own unique worldviews and that this conflict is the heart of everything that happens on earth. Not to sound like a liberal, but in reality we really are a single race, descended from Adam and Eve, with a single Objective Moral Code from the One True Objective G-d. What we need is not the triumph of this civilization or that one, but for all mankind to commit to G-d and His Laws.
