A Presbyterian Minister from County Tyrone has described plans to burn a wooden structure called Temple in Londonderry as a pagan practice.

Thousands have been leaving personal messages inside the Temple

Thousands of people have been visiting the site in the Waterside area of Derry where the 70-foot carved tower has been built.
People have been leaving personal messages inside the structure.
Around 15,000 people are expected to watch the burning of the tower on Saturday.
The aim behind Temple was to bring together the artist at the centre of the USA's Burning Man Festival in Nevada, David Best, and the people of Derry, to offer an alternative perspective on bonfires.

And what is wrong with a pagan practice of this kind? Let me guess - if there were heretics & pagans tied to the structure, burning them would make it a Christian practice, and said Presbyterian minister would be quite happy.
