An atheistic stork

This stork is in fact more than atheistic; it’s antitheisic, as well as strident, obnoxious, and arrogant. It must be a New Atheist Stork:

    I think that’s what is called making good use.

    I would worship the stork. For at least, he exists.

      There’s a saying attributed to J.W. Goethe: “Von allen Vögeln sind mir die Störche am liebsten, weil sie auf die Kirche scheißen.”

    All storks are atheists. This one just happens to make me laugh.

    We used to have them nom frogs in our back yard. They nested in the neighbor’s yard. The droppings were biblically horrendous.

    That is marvelous. The tangle of a nest looks to me kinda like a Crown of Thorns run amok.

    This is in Mechelen [or Mice], Belgium [between Antwerp & Brussels] – if you like beer & architecture then visit!

    Hi is an Antwerp news report I’ve fed through Google Translate – also the link has a more complete picture that’s worth a look:

    “Remarkable view of the cemetery Mice (Mechelen). A stork is building a nest on a crucifix. “Nice how life and death are so close to each other”, says the social media.

    The stork began in late March to the nest, which now seems almost off. “I’ve lived over fifty years to the cemetery and this I have never experienced,” it sounds to a local resident. “Many come to take pictures, it is almost an attraction. It is also very clever how they build something. It does seem engineers. ”

    In the city it is aware. “We can not just remove the nest, there are strict rules for because storks are protected,” said alderman Marc Hendrickx (N-VA), responsible for cemeteries. “Planckendael could not help us, but the next few days will see a specialist Natuurpunt. We should examine the crucifix it is strong enough to carry the nest. ”

    Stork its nest faithful birds. That means that they return year after year to the same nest. Even if the nest is abandoned, the chances are that the animal next year return to the same place.”

    i have long suspected that storks are atheists. When we were in Morocco, almost every minaret we saw had a stork’s nest on it. This confirms it.

      Nice to see minarets (and crucifixes) used well.
