Internet Responds to Bucharest St. George Graffiti Paint-Over Actions

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.

  1. We did not lose, we didn’t even begin to fight. Imagine this: on the next major orthodox celebration, have people make terrorist bomb prank calls to all the churches in Bucharest.

      1. They pay taxes but not on income because they are an NGO ( Non guvernamental Organization). So, please inform before talk. They pay all taxes required to other NGO’s to pay.

        Regarding the picture: The authors didn’t have anything to say against removing it, they understood the fact that some people who go to the church nearby (not priests or the Church as an institution) didn’t like it. They agreed covering it up, and to draw something else in place. It is that simple. But the press in Romania is the same as everywhere else, manipulative, money hungry and lame.

  2. the thing is that no one knew about it. I think that the graffiti was supposed to be erased on the 11.05 but apparenely they started 2 days earlier…

  3. As much about priests paying fees please inform yourself a little better. They have a diffrent tax sistem than most romanians, but they DO PAY TAXES!

  4. OMFG this bullshit. BIG FUCKING DEAL.. a FUCKING GRAFFITI covered because lame skill. With this scandal what are we actually saying? Are we promoting the artist, the drawing or scandalize against church in Romania? I fucking hate these disputes .. It’s because of the fucking artist.. which is not original , and actually made the drawing to be scandalous. SO FUCK THIS! it’s a poor story and the drawing was not so spectacular. It’s a shame about the work it meant do to it. That was good. Good work.
