If I were to build a structure on your property, would you have the right to burn it down
Who is "I" and"your" in this sentence?
If some Catholics, with Native American heritage, are using a building as a place of worship they have the right to their property. Violent ideologues don't have any right to burn it down.
Ahh, they don't have the right to burn it down no matter the nationality of its users. I think you're just upset that I'm not angry about it being burned down. It's hard for me to be angry with the people who burned it down because I sympathize with their reason. I also sympathize with the people affected by the destruction who aren't at fault.
What is so hard to swallow about that?
The churches were on FIrst Nations land. Perhaps they DID have the right to burn down the churches. I don't know much about Canadian law. But here in the US, if someone built a church or a dog house or put up a sign on my land and I didn't want it there, I could remove it or destroy it or, assuming I had appropriate permits, burn it down.
