    Sad of course, but it is nature. Symbolic about the state where the Catholic Church is today is so obvious.

  2. NotSafeForWork says

    Depends on what mythology you believe, if any. Crows can be a harbinger of doom, a symbol of Evil or of divine providence. Seagulls can be spirits of the dead, three of them are an omen of death. Gullible is to be naive or fooled.

    Obviously, the Crow represents the African nations’ attacks on Equality and Human Rights.

    And the seagull bears a striking resemblance to Putin.

    @ “Obviously, the Crow represents the African nations’ attacks on Equality and Human Rights.”

    Really, but which bird represents Gay Africans.

    Sometimes I fantasize meeting some of you Towleroad commentators–tying a rope around your redneck and strangling you to death.

  6. John says

    It means that proclaiming peace when there is none will not be accepted by the birds of the world. Aviarian revolution!

    “Really, but which bird represents Gay Africans.”

    My Bible tells me that Gay Africans are represented by the Dodo Bird. Extinction is their destiny.

    Also, Derrick Jamal D’Enchantra, please keep your kinky sexual fantasies to yourself.

    Well, Rick has a new posting name.

    Masculinity–my azz. You are a real vicious queeny b.tch.

  10. Diviner of Signs says

    And you, Derrick Jamal D’Enchantra, …is you is, or is you ain’t just another angry urban black man? Seriously, your desire to lynch rednecks SO plays to stereotype.

    Dial it back, sistuh.

    Posting names are like condoms: better not to use the same one twice, if you can afford to.

    It’s pretty obvious that mean gay people send the crow and the seagull, i’m pretty sure i could find a part of the Bible when explains this

    I always did love crows. Seagulls not so much but they are predatory in a sense. Crows are intelligent though. They can recognize and remember certain faces on people even when young. Plus they are one of a handful of bird species that use tools such as sticks etc to help get food they can’t reach. So, yeah, crows are smarter than we give credit for. My props to the crow.

    It’s quite obvious what this forebodes. We’ve seen the Pope tone down his language on all you perverse homosexuals. It is only a matter of time before he fully embraces your lifestyle… the Anti-Christ has finally taken the seat of Peter! This avian attack proves that the end times are nigh!

  15. MickyFlip says

    Oh @RICK IN CINCINNATI Spare us all of your fearful mythological ideology and go read Edgar Allen Poe’s The Raven. Or Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s The Rime of the Ancient Mariner. You might learn a thing or two about the irony of nature.

  16. Micky Noise says

    I don’t think it makes a difference whether they’re from the Popes balcony or my sisters marriage ceremony, it’s just birds being birds – the rest is superstitions.

  17. Rick in Cincinnati says

    Oh @MICKYFLIP, try to understand when someone says something tongue-in-cheek. 😉

    My Interpretation: The crow and gull symbolize Nature/Goddess, and she’s super not happy with anti-gay X, especially the relentless and hypocritical anti-gay faith groups like the Catholic church…

    You know when Cristians say everything negative that happens is god’s punishment for compassion towards gays? Well this is the opposite of that. This is nature’s way of saying STOP BEING MONSTERS AND FRONTING LIKE YOU’RE ABOUT PEACE; AND RESPECT ME IN MY MYRIAD FORMS (i.e. including gays)

    I remember Crows symbolizing justice, and gulls symbolizing freedom…

  19. Hey Darlin' says

    Where do these birds get the idea they deserve the right to fly, there are rules in NATURE aren’t there?

    If memory serves, it goes:

    Some birds should be allowed equality while the others should walk everywhere they would like to go as they have no right to fly.

    The right to fly should be governed by other birds deemed superior by (well THAT’S not the point) and dispensed only to the ones deemed deserving and worthy.

    Bird’s right to fly shall also hinge on their country or state of residency of course – This is extremely important.

    Birds of a certain religion such as The Flock Of Crow’s and Seagull Society should also be protected from their own prejudicial, bigoted behavior and that should be written into bird law for the other birds to adhere to.

    The very idea that these birds should deserve the basic avian right to fly is so very very wrong.

    The music on the video made it hilarious. Poor doves. They should probably dispense with this tradition unless they intend it to be a sacrifice of the doves.

    and in Italy no less, where this omen of birds is strong.

    reminds me of “mars attacks!”

    the message is that nature is inherently combative and that peace is a pipe dream, says the cynic in me.

    the optimist in me says that the church is losing power and ultimately doomed.
