Bill, common sense is what told people the world was flat and the sun went around it. Good sense is the critter that's absent.
One way or another most likely with sympathetic friends like Colpy and a few others here, Jews will be telling us not only that we can't have Christmas trees because they're offensive to Jews, but you'll be told what you can and can't say regarding Israel...Oh woops we've got that now...and they'll tell you that generations born after the Holocuast OWE Israel and Jews the duty and responsibility to erect as many Holocaust memorials as can be fitted on one nation...Oh woops we've got that too...
You think the conflict in Israel is the end of the story?
We're just seeing the beginning and luckily supporters like Colpy et al. will happily dance to tune of the OH SO UNFORTUNATE Jews...until he's got some skinheads or White Supremacists to shoot while maintaining good law and Order of course at the behest of the Jews!
I understand what your trying to say....but with all due respect I have know Idea who these offended people are...I live and work in a diverse area with a very ethinic makeup and I have met no one who is offended..for that matter I have budist Chinese families who put out Christmas displays...so who are they???
You know Mickey, you've got to be the most one tracked person on these threads..outside of maybe Sactum...Beyond that the Judge has a jewish last name..cohen what more was there....This has been an issue with all types of people and seems to be generally carried out by left wing European stock to be worried about offending other sects....
Damn sometimes you sound like Chucky Manson trying to start race riots but killing beautiful women stars..just don't make a whole lotta sence..
So have you heard about a simlar event taking place in Seattle? If a Christian or a Moslem told Jews that they can't display the Star of David or a menorah or any other Jewish symbol what do you think the response would be from Jews?
It's too bad thatWAKE UP!
How many times have I heard " faith should be kept in the Church and home" It is not faith if it is kept there, it's just something to do on a Sunday morning... We are to live the faith not just hear about it then go on in a secular world.
People in western countries who actively subvert our customs and traditions must be confronted. It's not hard to do. Excuses will come but they're easily deflected. Two words more than any do the job: Nevertheless and Regardless.
A) We're removing the tree because it might offend some faiths.
Reply: Nevertheless, this is a longstanding community tradition...
B) It's unacceptable to display religious holiday symbols in public institutions.
Reply: Regardless, community matters and its customs must be respected...
Oh, it's fun!
This is in fact about the Constitutional Human Rights and Freedoms of Canada, and her move to impose her beliefs on others is NON-CONSTITUTIONAL. Due to the Honor that sh has been given, as a public servant, and the very generous salary, which is on par with our prime minister, she has absolutely no right to break the law.
This Judge should resign, and if not resign, she should be forced to leave the bench since she has demonstrated by act and by word that she is biased, discriminatory, disrespectful and willing to break the constitutional laws by which this country was founded.
I feel this is more than a mere tree. This is an action which proves that she is not a fair minded judge.
Thus, she should be forced to leave the bench or at the very least issue a public apology for breaking the constitutional law.
Exactly. Faith just on Sunday is not faith at all. In fact, I'd go so far as to suggest that the main reason the Church is in decline the past 30 years is the lack of faith of its membership who see their local parish as some sort of social club. They go there on Sunday, all dressed up, kids sparkling and clean. They join in the prayers and litanies, sing the hymns and than go for coffee in the parish hall. Afterwards they go home and clearly not one word of the Gospel has reached their hearts. Not one word of the homily has drifted into their minds.Quote has been trimmed, See full post:
They complain, of course, about Father preaching about things they find distasteful to consider. That seems the only time they pay attention!
They will proudly tell you they go to this or that parish. They will tell you how "nice" the Mass is, or they will complain because of the usage of incense, or not using incense; using Latin or not using Latin; altar girls or no altar girls...etc..etc...etc. They will moan when they are asked to contribute to a fund to maintain the very building they should be paying for anyway. They think the parish is some sort of magic place that is self-sustaining financially.
When the Diocese mentions the possiblity of closing the parish, oh how they bitch at that time! They complain because they have memories in the building. They complain because they had events in the building...etc...etc....etc..Heaven Forbid they financially contribute to keep the...
