Today's world is full of terror, pain, poverty and despair, but those things should not be allowed to triumph, the Archbishop of Canterbury has said.

In his Easter message, the Most Reverend Justin Welby remembered the victims of the recent bombings at two Coptic Christian churches in Egypt.

He called on his congregation to bring "restoration and hope".

In Windsor, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge joined the Queen and Prince Philip for an Easter service.

Prince George and Princess Charlotte did not attend, but Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, Prince Edward and his family and the Princess Royal all turned out for the service at Windsor Castle.

Wellwishers waited outside St George's Chapel and applauded the Queen when she arrived.

At Canterbury Cathedral, the archbishop told worshippers: "The words Jesus says on that first Easter day, he says to you and me now, to each of us, to listen, to take hold of, within our hearts: Do not be afraid.

"These things, these grim events, overshadow our lives because we fear that they may have the last word.

"These things lie. They deceive. They pretend to have power that they do not have when they say that they are final. There is only one finality - Jesus, the crucified one, is alive."

He went on to say: "You and I must come alongside the suffering and, with love and gentleness, bring restoration and hope."

Meanwhile at the Vatican, Pope Francis used his Easter address to condemn Saturday's deadly attack on a bus convoy in Syria, and called for peace.

And at Westminster Cathedral, Archbishop Vincent Nichols called for co-operation, not conflict, in the world in his Easter Sunday homily.

"We pray for peace in our troubled world, as confrontations harden and threats increase," said the head of the Catholic Church in England and Wales.

"We pray for wisdom and prudence in world leaders and an unwavering determination for cooperation rather than conflict."

At least Welby is not one of those bleeding hearts who keeps insisting ISIS and terrorism have nothing to do with Islam. Now if only his own government would come to agree.

Are the ladies hats supposed to fit in with the background like in Sherwood Forest?? Well they don't. There, somebody had to say it.

Rumor has it that Prince Charles snuck into Di's room late one night to test her purity. He pulled out his erection and demanded she determine if it was a 'pee-pee' or a 'cock'. He felt good when she said, 'pee-pee.' Not so good when she said 'a cock is two fists deep.'

You ever hear anything more on that one???

Sounds like one of the most visited porn isles, right after the women in prison series.

If Iran is the days before the Shaw in 1953 and Afghanistan in 1975 were used as examples of Muslims adopting the UN Human rights documents it was at a faster than normal rate rather than there being real resistance to it. The resistance came from US backed hardliners who supported the landlord systems where the people were just kept above the starvation line rather than letting them be the best that they can be.

If Arab money donated to Gaza and the West Bank had gone to them instead of to Jewish Israel their per capita income would be higher than it is in Israel. That is probably a crime against humanity unless the restriction is over explosive devices being made from food items.

These days, or Sept/2018, could be used as a time to make a deal with all the nations that share the watershed of the 4 rivers mentioned in Genesis:2 as having a common interest in sharing agricultural development as well as energy needs stretching into the 22nd century. Mid-east gas will be in demand by the EU as Russian gas will be sent to India/China and a developing Africa will need production facilities and those products are an import so money is spent before it comes back in.

Israel might get the contracts to do the billing (at a modest income) but the revenue for the product goes to the people who live on the land. IE, the Golan Heights, Gaza off-shore, Lebanon off shore, Syria off-shore and on-shore.

Should climate change happen it will see more rain come to the desert regions of the world so food production will go up rather than down.

Would the place of said service be considered to be part of the fortress network the Royals have?? The ones that keeps the Surfs from being able to do any serious demonstrations???
