In Romania it’s completely legit for the Church to paint over a graffiti in order to send us back in Middle Ages.
If you still had your doubts that we’re a theistic nation, now you’ve got your damned proof. The fact that in 2015 priests don’t pay
any forms of specific kind of taxes as they’re the Chosen Few, the Gods’ protégés, it’s not just an unfortunate misunderstanding, it’s a shitty reality. All we need is some more afternoon human barbeques and some incestuous marriages and we’ll have the Game of Thrones universe in real life, Romanian version.
Yesterday, the authorities gave up to the Church institution the right of painting over the mural artwork illustrating a surreal vision of St. George and the Dragon [more here]. As it’s the Age of Internet, The Internet reacted. Unfortunately, a little bit late, considering the fact the graffiti masterpiece had already been erased, as Facebook users were busy posting photos with the art-crime. It bothers me that nobody went there to stop the motherfucker who kept the roller in his hand.
We limited ourselves to a bunch of Photoshop pranks (which deserve their own dose of respect for good intention!), but it won’t stop the long-bearded bastards to fuck us in the future. Let’s get real: they won’t surf the Internet looking for satirical jokes about their latest actions.
At the end of the day, we went to sleep without a contemporary artifact and with our liberties roughly hacked. They went to sleep with one less danger to their power to think about. They won, no matter how much we measure our meaningful dicks on the Internet.
