Not selling it as a tourist destination, to be honest.

You said it, brother.

However, you can get a tipple till around 6am.
Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can put off until the day after.

I was driving to work this morning when I heard about the diabolic happenings in Manchester. I honesty had to stop for fear of throwing up.

If there is some kind of spirit world, when I die I am going to find that politician and torture him for a million years.

If there is a hell, I expect there will be a special circle reserved for terrorists.

I honestly cannot think of a solution for these heinous crimes but I do see the problem escalating with each passing year. Sad state of affairs when you're fighting an ideology that doesn't acknowledge "loss".

An intriguing prospect, as "freedom fighters" expect a reservation in a special balcony of heaven.

I'm pretty sure they blaspheme the faith, so they're probably already covered in terms of applicable sins.  I hope that if they do get to that heaven, the virgins are mean, pushy American Jewesses who will give them poo for eternity.

Oddly, I argue that suicide bomber must go to their Islamic heaven. Why? Because they gave their life for Allah and were told that they will be rewarded for it, and Allah can't welch on the deal. Yes they are bless'ed morons that misinterpreted the writings, but is that a get out clause for Allah as, after all, they died in his name?

This is the whole problem with religion fuelled terrorism. One can argue that it is diminished responsibility as you really have to have a screw loose. When it was the IRA or the Basque separatists, they did those murderous things in the name of territory and political argument. For that, they have to take complete responsibility.

Cute article, re-affirming not to kill and love your neighbor is of utmost importance, even if the article contained countless errors.

Hang on a minute: to create the papacy and to respond to the Turkish marauders threatening Byzantium, the church (I assume with the authority of God), changed the rule to "thou shall not kill... Christians" (legitimising the Crusades in the process and the killing of Jews regardless of them not being infidels). This allowed nearly total autonomy for folk killers and, shortly afterwards, Islam installed the whole Jihad clause as a response.

If God, in all his omnipotence, wants a rule to be a rule, all he'she/it needs to do is demand it. If he/she/it had, this poo would have been over a thousand years ago.

I think you have misunderstood. God & Church are completely separate things.

Only in spelling.

Nope.

God = something people (created to) believe in, so that they can convince themselves that all people will get their due later.
Church = something created by some people to control other people, so that the controllers will get "their due" now.

Granted that there is an overlap in practice, but the principles are quite separate.

Glad you cleared that up. It makes perfect sense now...

Always glad to help.

That's great to hear, I'll make a list. Shouldn't take more than a week or 2.
