    Whoa there is a lot of hatred for Nordic culture and traditions in this thread...

    True. Have you seen the South Park which deals with this

    In all honesty, I don't see what's wrong with hunting other species. Mouse eats bug, fox eats mouse, bear eats fox, man eats bear, and some sad day, the bugs eat the human again. That's how the cycle of life works. Why shouldn't humans be allowed to hunt, as any other predator on this planet? Only because we are more intelligent? I can't see any logic behind that. I also don't see what's "green" or "pagan" about advocating against hunting. To me, it's the only way to gather meat which can be perfectly in tune with nature. If you really want to protect animals or nature, fight that meat factories producing cheap chicken or pork meat, where animals are held captive in permanent darkness, having to live on their own excrements and being pumped with chemicals. Instead of arguing this, people whine about some cute little seals being clubbed to death or whales being killed. That's just disproportional to me.

    Nothing wrong with the Faroese keeping this old custom alive. Just like the indigenous people of alaska hunting whale to feed themself with. Industrial scale whaleing is what needs to be watched carefully as to not wipe out species of whale.

    I know, I could never condone hunting animals for no reason and excessively as well. Learning how to fire a twelve gauge and practicing at a firing range is sport in its own merit and so is golf(stuff I really enjoy.) Hunting animals excessively(the seal clubbing really disgusts me by the way) for no reason other than sport really doesn't sound sporting to me.

    Its a shame, that people can only find fun in that on such a lovely island.

    I realize, I'm likely in the minority regarding my opinion here. But I view culture (hunting included) as a manifestation of race, at present my primary concern is for the long term preservation of a single specie...us. If whites are removed from the earth, it's safe to say it will spell the doom of most of the world's wildlife as well. So admittedly in single-mindedness, culture trumps any animal concerns to me...keeping our old traditions alive, is more important to me than keeping any individual fish alive.

    For those fellows keeping those old traditions alive, you have my support.

    Again, wow, and I’m a nice liberal Ivy League educated girl from the Northeast and I am appalled by some of the sentiment on this thread. If those people were brown, OF COURSE we must honor their native ways, but because they are white they are brutal.

    Yeah, how’s that working’ out for us? The whales in question are not even close to extinction, they are killed in a ritualistic, sacred manner and they are eaten. I have Yankees in my past, they survived on whale, thank the gods, because I am here today to say that white ritual, white rights of passage and white consumption are neither environmental crimes nor are they immoral anymore than a bris, ritual circumcision of the Jew at eight days old (making all genital mutilation in America legal in order to honor that particular right of passage just A-OK) is an illegal or immoral act.

    Yes, almost every bit of redblooded meat I eat is horribly abused before it reaches my tongue, and yes, if my husband could/would free himself of the white slavery that is corporate America I and my children would eat meat from animals that lived in peace until he bested them, so I have to say I envy those women and children whose men are free to provide them with meat that isn’t riddled with angst and horror like that which I have fed my children for twenty years.

    How to reconcile this? I haven’t a clue. But if there’s food to be had and your children hungry – feed them. If there’s a tradition that has yet to be interrupted by white guilt - fight for it. If there’s a lobby protecting a lower life form – question it and find out who financially benefits from its existence. I doubt you’d find the Faeroese.

    I'm going to have to give exception to the Faeroese because, there is never anything wrong with a ritualistic feast in my opinion. (I might make it my goal to plan my own sometime.)

    I still hate Canadian seal hunters though.

    American religious nuts want to stone whale to death

    Whale named Tilikum, who was cought close to Iceland in the late 80's, killed his coach. the coach is Tilikum's third murder victim

    moments after this photo was taken Tilikum bit her hair and dragged her to the bottom of the pool where she died from drowning
