A controversial report from An Garda Síochána, which was released to the public last week, outlined Gardaí fears of potential Agnostic extremism boiling over into terror attacks in Ireland. In recent years the Irish Agnostic community have become more and more isolated. Entire communities of Agnostics have sprung up in many areas of Ireland leaving many citizens feeling uneasy.
In this report, Gardaí claim “Militant Agnostics may or may not carry out terror attacks in Ireland in the future but there is no way of knowing for certain.” The report also said that “there is no evidence that there is going to be an imminent attack however there is also no evidence there is not going to be one. There’s a possibility, and the authorities are not denying that, it’s just there’s no concrete evidence. The only way we could find out if there is one planned is if one occurs but then it will be too late.” It is the opinion of an Garda Síochána that just accepting the ambiguous nature of the terrorist attacks is the only logical way forward.
In response to this report, the leader of the Irish Agnostic community told the Turbine, “these claims that we could start a terrorist campaign probably don’t represent us as a community. They might, but maybe they don’t. I don’t know, nobody knows, nobody can know. Let’s all just accept the ambiguous nature of these things and go to the beach and listen to some Coldplay songs while wearing baggy Diesel jeans and an unnecessary amount of bracelets.”
