On 2012-08-02, a seagull impaled itself on a spike on top of St. Patrick’s Catholic church in St. John’s Newfoundland. They left it there for three days in the 30°C (86°F) heat until it died.
Liberal MP (Member of Parliament), Scott Andrews email@example.com, of the Topsail United Church, said gulls are like seals… no one would miss one… get a hakapik [a tool for taking revenge on seals for eating fish by hacking them to death] and put it out of his misery.
So much for Christian compassion. I would have thought the notion of a three day crucifixion would have been more compelling to Christians. Did no one in the whole city have a suitable ladder or a 22 rifle?~ Roedy (born:1948-02-04 age:68) source
