Politics and Religion

Luxor has both Christian and Moslem communities and the politics of the Middle East are equally diverse. Air your views on the situation.

Politics and Religion

Post by Who2 »

So The Labour Party is accused of Antisemitism, now The Tories are accused of Islamcphbia next
The SNP will be accused of Anti-Catholicism ? ( is there a better term for loathing the Catholic Church ? )
Religions for far too long have had their noses deep in Politics, 26 Bishops in the House of Lords, Why ?...... 8)

I agree with you there Dr, remember how bloody miserable Sundays in the UK used to be, all thanks to some bible bashers wanting to impose their sanctimonious ways on the rest of us. :td Politics is bad enough without religion poking its evil nose into things. 8)

You mean 'Songs to slit your wrists by' what a load of boring dirges most of them are, get a life, go sit in a nice meadow by a river with a nice bottle of wine and a roast chicken. and appreciate this life instead of pondering about the next ;)

I used to love those rousing old hymns :


And did those feet in ancient time
Walk upon England's mountains green?

Nope. Apart from a few druids

And was the holy Lamb of God
On England's pleasant pastures seen?

Nope......although there's thousands in Wales


And did the countenance divine
Shine forth upon our clouded hills?

Rarely....and never on a Bank Holiday



And was Jerusalem builded here
Among those dark Satanic Mills?

Nope. Rejected after planning consent was refused in face of intense NIMBY lobbying
