    Brilliant to see Ireland is still as backward and superstitious as it was 100 years ago #changenothing.

      Blah, blah, blah. You sound like a greying, pre-retirement Oirish Times journo the way you bang on about it. “backward Ireland” was “cool” back in 1990. “The shackles of the evil Catholic Church” was cool around the time Mary Robinson was smuggling condoms back in the 60s. It’s now 2016 and New Ireland isn’t exactly great with all the homelessness, poverty, 1916 clap-trap, working mums (married and single) and working daddies (divorced and “split up”) who can’t afford their own homes (to rent or buy) and only get to see their kids if they’re lucky.

      But sure as long as we have The State to bless gay unions between exactly two people of the same sex, sure what does it matter eh?

      Anyway, as well as the serious business of Mass on Good Friday, it looks like the young lads are enjoying themselves in the sun and having a bit of banter.

      Why are you so angry and anti-Catholic all the time? You’ll be dying soon, like the rest of us, so why are you so upset about others partaking in Good Friday ceremonies and contemplating their ultimate fate? Public displays of faith are important. Who are you to say what is and isn’t allowed? What others can and can’t believe?

      Fair play to the PP and all those involved.

        Hey there Pope Francis
        Should you not be passing on your STDs down at the veneration of the cross?

        “Why are you so angry”

        Talk about the kettle calling the pot black, everything that comes out of your fine “christian” mind is angry and filled with hate. You’re just a typical hypocritical religious nut.

      If it’s so terrible why do you spend so much time posting in an Irish website?

    It’s always a little strange and disconcerting to see deeply religious young people in this day and age.

        He didn’t insult them just said he found them an oddity in a world that has the tools to leave superstition behind, as do I.

          Thanks, Janet.

          And also – people in their 20s publicly recreating the crucifixion in 2016 isn’t weird? That goes beyond ‘people of faith’ into fundamentalism.

            It’s just the same to me as lads going round in hen party get up or ordering a stripper for a stag. Sure people love a bit of an oul pageant. Weren’t you telling us there only the other day how you were going to get yer own yayas out for some parade or other? Is that because of some association or badge of honour or members club you believe in?

            Peace be with you, same old. :)

            Hope you have a good ‘stocked up on cans’ Friday, in the proper tradition!

          I didn’t say he did. I asked what sort of simpleton would do such a thing, he didn’t answer though.
          For all we know his Mammy down in Cork is at the stations of the Cross this very minute.

            It’s a multipolar world boy. If you want equality for your favourite hobby horses the least you can do is show tolerance of the Brigids and Mary’s. Or do you only want people that think the same as you, like some of the other angry birds on this? You seemed better than that.

            Sure they can do what they like but he’s allowed find them mystifing. Is that a word ?

          3. Kieran NYC

            I said I found it a bit weird, strange and disconcerting. I never said they should stop doing it.

            Unlike some religious people, I’m not into restricting people’s freedoms of choice.

            I wish they had found sandels for the Romans though..those runners are all wrong.

    Anyone remember when those progressive and tolerant SJWs from Seomra Spraoi had a crucifixion party?

    1. Peter Dempsey

      The silence means:
      1) Yes, people do remember.
      2) Some people here were at the party OR are mates with people who were

      Adolescent anarchists in their cubby house. A circle jerk of middle class self-loathers who hate THE HERD.
