Religious Fanatic Threatens Quebec Teen

I was quite amused to see that a teenager in Quebec has been poking fun at religion by among other things, drilling holes in a holy cracker.

A devilishly mischievous Canadian boy who mocks a central Christian ritual on YouTube has caused an international stir and earned the wrath of the Catholic Civil Rights League, which has called for his offensive, and popular, videos to be removed from the Internet.

The teenager from Quebec named Dominique, who tags himself "fsmdude," has posted 40 videos in which the Catholic Civil Rights group maintains he desecrates the host, the small circular wafer that Catholics ingest during Eucharist service.

"I'm attacking the belief," Dominique says, holding up a wafer, "that this thing, this cracker, is someone that can feel pain." He calls the host "just an object you can eat."

Which seems pretty harmless to me. Just one more bit of payback for the misery the Catholic Church inflicted on Quebec during the so-called Great Darkness. With Dominique as the new face of the Quiet Revolution.

So I was disgusted to see that he had to pull down his videos after his father received a disturbing letter.

I will not inform the general public about where he lives. I have informed the Church in Qu├ębec and other organization whom act in defense of the Catholic Church. I will not inform the public because with the emotions involved with attacks against any religion someone might do him harm. I don't think that is what Jesus would want.

It took a lot of work but it was not that hard to find out were Dominique lives. Eventually someone else will find out were he lives. I can only hope they will be concerned for Dominiques safety as I am.

I will continue to pray for Dominique & the rest of your family. Good bye.

Now first of all I want to say that the family should hand the letter in to the police, so they can try to catch this deranged religious fanatic and lock him up in a jail ....or an insane asylum.

Secondly I want to express my TOTAL solidarity with Dominique, and remind him that it's not for nothing that one of the most popular swear words in Quebec is HOSTIE!!!! Which is usually followed by CRISSE DE TABARNAC !!!!

So don't give up. Eh?

Thirdly I want to know what's more DISTURBING? Pretending that you are eating the flesh of Christ and washing it down with his blood? Or drilling a hole in a cracker and feeding it to the ducks? Huh?

Yup. It's not too hard to get the parable of this story.

Religious fanatics are crazy and DANGEROUS.

Religion is the bonfire of free and intelligent thought.

And a holy cracker is a cracker is a cracker.

Unless it's a PIZZA...

Oh more thing. The religious hatemongers who have made life hell for women and gay people for so long, can threaten a Quebec kid.

But they better not bother me. Because I hate bullies.

And I am not afraid...

Excellent post.
The fervently delusional that lurk inside ALL the Abrahamic religions are the REAL enemy within.

Hi Omar !! Thanks. I thought it was worth speaking up for the kid. I can think of better ways to poke fun at religion, but I thought it was cute and harmless, and I really hated the fact that these religious fanatics tracked him down. And the threatening tone of the letter was truly disturbing.
My particular position is that people are welcome to believe whatever they want, as long as we are allowed to say whatever we want about religion.
What bothers me is that even though this Canadian kid has been under an all out assault from wingnuts like Wild Bill Donohue the MSM has given the story very little play. I may have to get a box of crackers and an electric drill ...or some ducks...and have a little fun myself... :)
