Intolerance
About this creation
Intolerance

High there Lego fans. This build is for all those that feel violence in media is acceptable, whilst love is not.

So here you go boys – let the display of violence, fear, anger, intolerance, etc begin.

So here we have the two tribes that have gone to war. They live on opposite sides of the river, and have lived in a tense peace for the past 100-years. However, their belief system is not the same. Doesn’t really matter who believes what in this case. The green skins believe ‘A’, whilst the red faces believe ‘B’. The elders of the tribe have decided that the tribes are at risk because of the other’s beliefs, and if ‘they’ don’t strike now, then the other tribe will first.

Here we are on the banks of this unnamed river, and the men of the tribes are cutting each other down. So in celebration of religion – I present “Intolerance”. My version of the Sneetches by Dr. Seuss.

I am not picking on anyone religion; rather, all of them. So please don’t be so egocentric to think that your’s is the one I am targeting ;-) But then again, maybe it is...

As for the "This may not be suitable for young children." I will have to admit that I don't know how to answer that one. I would say no, but most people would rather their children watch two people kill each other, rather than see two people make love.

My love out to those that know they deserve it.

In today's media, this is so tame that it might be considered love. Nice collection of figs.

You just captured the oldest and most upsetting side of people in this Dio. The factor that no matter how we evolve human nature will always fear that which is different from themselves. Excellent build and lesson to be learned.

To quote one of my favorite Megadeth songs: "Brother will kill brother Spilling blood across the land Killing for religion Something I don't understand Fools like me, who cross the sea And come to foreign lands Ask the sheep, for their beliefs Do you kill on God's command?"

A very interesting reflection. I don´t understand why somewhere a sex scene is banned, forbidden, demonized, while a crazy guy with an AK 47 inside a supermarket killing people is allowed. I don not understand... Thanks for this Moc.

Quoting Lee Jones Not trying to offend CFOLs at all; rather, I am aiming to offend any religion that supports ignorance/intolerance ;-)
Trying to and going to are pretty different things, though, and dare I say it, not all Christians are as tolerant as the scriptures would indicate they should be. More often than not, the issue with "holy wars" is individual interpretation of beliefs, rather than the beliefs themselves.

Quoting Ape Fight Nice scene, there are some great action poses going on in there. It's a bit difficult to pick our the green chaps though. Ah, intolerance; on it's own it's a good title - but labeling 'religion' this is, in my opinion, as intolerant as religion itself.
Maybe, but I am not putting down faith in any sense. Just picking on the man-made institution of religion.
Quoting Nick Barrett Intolerance is caused more by different people's interpretation of their belief than the belief itself. Still, you capture the essential insanity of war very well.
I would agree with that to be sure.
Quoting Chris Phipson But the black bellied trolls had no star upon thars... And just where the (bleep) have you been? I was positive your wife had you tied to the bed for the past few months! Oh right, we can talk about violence but not love... my bad. So then... did she spank you this week? Welcome back! ~ Chris.
Sorry Chris, the last time we talked about spanking my moc was censored - no paddles of affection here - just blood, guts, and hate.
Quoting cyberfrank 2010 each time i hear of you, you re associated with a ton of figs! this is no exception, wow! i would have appreciated astructure, building of some sort, for scale, or as a fixed point to capture the figs positions better, are you planning on a big building-fortress soon? great figures!
Not for this build. Didn't want to give anything that would look like organization here - just chaos.
Quoting Mister Bones First, the build: That is a crazy amount of figs, you nut. Love the river by the way. I would do battle my figs vs yours, but since you have close to 7,000 and I have 1,475, I would lose....curses! Second: Need for PG rating, um....no. Third the theme: Could not agree more. Surprised the intolerance crew has not rasied holy hades in here yet. Oh yeah, they are too busy telling Leda how god destroyed Christchurch....Cheers amigo!
Actually, I am over 20,000 figs at this point.
Quoting W. Mark My goodness... just when those spartans were starting to become affordable again, you go and do this. You're worse than Kelso and his gigantic bley SHIPs. On top of that, you have to go and take a stab at beating Fassio's record for offended CFOLs. I would leap into the debate myself, but it probably wouldn't get anyone anywhere, so I'll settle for saying that you've done an awesome job building a massive battle scene.

Ironically, my church recently had a Dr. Seuss day, and they told that story to the kids. Anyway, nice build, and a very relevant message, with which I agree most soundly.

I was thinking about this last night (yes, I was that bored... watched the roast of Trump and that "Situation" guy from Jersey Shore just... died on stage. It was sad. Anyway...) Another Seuss story this could easily go with would be Butter Battle. Two sides, one butter their bread on top, the other butters on the bottom... just about as absurd as any other reason to kill each other. ~ Chris.

I'm glad you didn't PG rate this Lee - you're right in that most people would let their kids watch violence rather than a depiction of affection which is quite sad. In other news, I hear the UN are tabling a bricklink embargo against you for fig hoarding and manipulating the prices of ABS on the global market. No credence is yet being given to the rumours that you have a footstool composed entirely of gold C3POs, white Bobas and Chrome Vaders.....Now we know the good professional work you do, so to avoid potential finger damage and it impacting on your medical career I suggest you don't try and plate your spare figs. Just bag up those killer crocs and ship them over here to the UK....

Religion or a desire to take what the other guy has? Is there any difference? Both scenarios lead to senseless waste of lives. You capture the confusion of combat here very well.

Interesting. Ironically, I just read the 'Sneetches' poem in my Lit & Comp class. I took it more as racism/rich vs. poor, but I think religious views also fit. Anyways, cool little soldiers. P.S.: Are some of those weapons Brickforge, or...?
