Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Why is it that you cannot understand that a cathedral mainly used as a tourist attraction is a public space?

Because that isn't true. Even if a church is opened to the public, this is always subject to the public  not violating the rules. And this is not even a privilege for religious buildings: the same is true  for a shopping centre. I happen to find that religious communities, that usually are of emotional value for their members, deserve far more consideration than commercial interests.

Why is it that you cannot understand that your religious feelings are not protected in a democracy?

Nonsense. There are laws against hurting people because of race, religion, gender, and more. I can't understand why you are on the side of people who want to humiliate people for what they hold dear.
