For clarification Busy......those who practise a religion are no worse than those who don't .  However, they are no better either.....and they SHOULD be

claiming a closer relationship to god and by receiving regular counsel from the bible christians should be kinder, more compassionate, truthful, generous and loyal (the bible talks of the "fruitage of the spirit") but they are not.  They are mostly judgemental, insincere and pharisee-like. They are  boastful and pretentious and showy of their "good works" .   At worst they cause terror, war and division. they are not the finest group of people in the world 

I accept religion is important to so many people but it is a crutch, a last resort and an explanation for why life is hard and provides a fairy tale hope of a better life to come.   I don't begrudge these people. 

I am neither bitter nor angry folks.    Insincerity galls me

Ha ha.....don't take sugar Tetley   

my dog likes Markies too...well, he likes everything,

my niece just had a pretty big pay rise last week; she was told her qualification as an accountant is official thus entitling her to another pay rise.  Her boyfriend has just got his dream job.  something makes me think they will enjoy christmas this year . And my nephew is expecting his first child over xmas.....yes, could all be pretty good

My mother had been in a certain religion for some 50 plus years. her church was not great for her when she had a stroke or for the 10 months afterwards during her final days.  For that the elders of her church faced my anger who duly hung their heads and apolgised.

My point earlier was simple, viz., that in a christian country christians should be allowed to express their faith without having to compromise on it to accommodate changing modern attitudes.

religion does not make for better usually creates hypocricy, holier than thou    attitudes, insincerity and judgements.  Kindness, for example, is not a natural part or result of religion.  Going to church is more ritualistic than anything....a reflection of their "goodness" ....for example, the pope and his popemobile and finery....what is that about?  If there is a god what on earth would he make of it?

the best people in my life are not church going 

without any religion this world would be a better and safer place

Christmas presents for Gardeners

A garden trowel that simply wont break no matter how aggressive I am with it.  Had one such for years.....made for me.....but I broke it this year.  Secateurs too that wont break on me.  Spades and forks that....well, you get the idea 

I think I was the kid who broke unbreakable toys.
