Let's burn a Catholic

We are celebrating the success of the 17th Century English Taliban, very much the spiritual brothers of your Mayflower lunatics.
It's Guy Fawkes Night, when every community in England and some in Wales - and about, oooh, 60% in Northern Ireland - burn a Catholic terrorist in effigy on a communal bonfire.

It's visceral stuff.

my wife's Catholic; I'm Methodist.  I get nervous when we go camping and have a bonfire.

It’s not the bonfire so much as the hanging until nearly dead, the disembowelling, the burning of the entrails before your dying eyes, the dismemberment and the denial of any sacrament over your scattered remains.


Fun.

Like I said, the English Taliban.

You'd have to be pretty PO'd to want to do something like that to a person, let alone actually do it. 

Sort of reminded me of poor old John Wycliffe.  People were still so mad at him about his "heresy" they dug up his bones, burned them, and threw the ashes in a river 44 years after he had died.

Presumably any post that casts doubt on either the desirability of a feudal system, or of JRR's status as Greatest Author Ever will be deleted?


Only kidding. Looking forward to a renaissance of the forum.

I've often wondered.


There's a commemorative stone near my house to George Marsh, burned for being slightly in disagreement with the then religious authorities.

Who physically did it? Was it a job?

I can't imagine getting up to go to work, knowing that you're about to take the life of a bound prisoner in an unspeakably painful manner.


Who, nowadays, could do it?
