Happy St. Skyscraper Day! - Blind Horus - 09-11-2019

Failing to see any humour in this, at all.  They're mocking people for mourning and remembering the dead -- worse yet, the dead who were murdered. Not sure why you would want to share such a deplorable sentiment, especially when there are people on this forum whose family worked in those "holy skyscrapers".

I have to agree with Steven, certainly not humor of any kind. If it were one of my loved ones that died in those towers or on those planes by those terrorists, I would be very upset with this so called 'humor'.

"For the sake of His sorrowful passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world."

God Bless

"As I pointed out to the Yanks at work, welcome to the world of fighting terror, as per usual you are only late again!"

Give it time, you'll see the humor

No, I don't think I will, any more so than I find humour in the 7/7 bombings or the genocides of the 20th century. Senseless and evil actions are not humorous, even if other people have already experienced them previously. A mother weeps at the loss of her child even if many mothers before her have experienced the same such grief, and it would be a horrible thing to laugh at her anguish because she's "late to the club". Our Lord's example of consolation in Luke 7,13 is a much better response.

I'm glad my friends sister was late to work that day. She worked in one of the towers.

I'll admit it is black humor but it's a military website and that's the way they roll, so sign up and post your grievances there, I'm sure they would love it. 

PS I was outraged at first, too.

There's a reason BH is my 'ignore' list.

Next anniversary of the Hiroshima bombing go to a Japanese Catholic forum, yell them happy St. Radioactive Man Day, then come back and tell us if they find it humorous.

I will NOT be awaiting an affirmative response with bated breath.
