    I don’t think JC is just human, as I understand it he’s God on Earth. So it’s a bite of God. Brisket sounds better.

    A bite of God? Ah the ever present paradox........Don't bite the god that feeds you!

    And while I'm on the topic, what sort of thoughtful god would set up a deal where all his creatures have to eat each other to survive? The innocent, the guilty, the naive, the newborn, every creature has to eat somebody else if they are to get by. And then they die.

    I'm pretty sure if I was all powerful I could come up with a better program than this.

    Hey Lew, that was just a silly play on words...... I don't give god (any church) any money in the sense of a tythe.
    As for the man eat beast and lion eat gazelle bit well all good points. Beats me why its this way but I can't deny my experience of the numinous and it must be acknowledged that this is a shared experience among most peoples of the earth dating back to pre history. What this experience is who really knows?

    Don't believe him for a moment. Tar and feather him and ride him into jail on a rail.

    We got married in Christchurch, Georgetown. When meeting the pasteur, the organist came in to discuss the music. His opening line was that 'Here Comes the Bride' was not acceptable as it was a pagan piece (or something)

    You need to do a Henry 8 on them, confiscate everything. But then again judging by we treat veterans, the old and poor, the homeless, the sick and mentally effected, minorities, refugees, even voters if we don't like their politics, we would probably be even worse.

    So take the good with the bad, and be what you think is part of the good in any arena you find yourself. That will do, and the dinosaurs will face extinction as common sense, rationality and what ever you like to call what I refer to as the way of good heart sorts the wheat from the chaff.

    I'd like to enjoy freedom FROM religion.

    It is perfectly legal for those who don't believe in abortion to not have one. That seems sufficient to me.

    Mostly I see the big problem is virtually all the laws are written by men, who cannot get pregnant.

    Seriously, is it really 'equal' for the male to have a few minutes of pleasure and the female to carry a pregnancy for 9 months? I see nothing equal about that.

    Sans a marriage (for lack of a better cut off point), if I wrote the laws, the father would have NO automatic rights to the child. I'd find it difficult to believe a man who liked a woman enough to create the baby if he tries to convince me she's unfit to be a mom.

    So, dad pays support, but has no legal right to the child.

    I believe this would result in men being more careful. Use my tax dollars to pay for vasectomies. Use them to pay for birth control. Use them to pay for abortions: preferable to using them to pay for an unwanted child for 18 years.

    How is a monsignor the leader of a group of bishops? They are not bishops.

    As for the story about the organist, there will always be those people who overstep their authority. And for the record, no organist has ANY authority in church. The priest was a nut to allow that.

    Felix Mendelssohn was a Calvinist of Jewish descent. The organist was being remarkably picky.

    Or is the offending tune the one by Wagner? (ETA: "Here comes the bride")

    Joy Bayhar (spelling ?) told a story of how she opened for Glen Campbell and when he did "Amazing Grace" a chunk of the audience walked out. Apparently for religious reasons.

    I hate religion, but confess to enjoying a lot of the music. It's only music.

    Music, is one of the few saving graces that religions can claim.
    I'll put up with a lot of arrant nonsense for Bach, Pallestrina and Hildegard.

    That's why I qualify my appreciation for it. The great Gothic cathedrals were built over many generations, providing work for thousands of artisans and crafters. but the pay they received was from tithes on the peasantry. Great art, but at what cost.

    Thanks for that, does sound picky, possibly anti-semetic? But I was already having trouble with the pasteur, who was a right pr*ck, so just went with it. It was very much for herself, as both of us were first timers at mid 40s and her family had connections with building the church, so best to keep quiet.. He also banned photos in the church, but enough of my US cousins ignored that.
