Go to: Chilean miners: Rival churches claim credit for the miracle

So god is getting 33 miners out of a hole after killing quite a lot more of their fellow countrymen in the February earthquake?

Go to: Pope should come and go in peace

andreab's Avatar Jump to comment 19 by andreab

The protest was hardly violent and yet seemed to be followed by a wave of disgust from the British press who were calling secularists aggressive even before Saturday.

This insistence that the best response to something you vehemently oppose is a good old British dignified silence would only have given the pope-lovers further excuse to tell us all how universally loved and admired he is.

Nothing was ever achieved by sulking quietly.

Go to: Twisted values of the noisy bigots

42 million christians? Is that actually based on any real figures? next year is census year I think (they are normally the years ending in 1) We'll see then how many there are. I suspect it's quite a bit less than 42 million!

Funny how they see the BBC as being anti-pope. Every time I put the BBC on there's coverage of the visit in all it's stomach turning detail. The kiddies waving flags and the old git himself leering at them and drooling onto his white dress.

Go to: How can anyone fall for such transparent dishonesty?

"an elitist and an intellectual snob"? It's simple logic. Apply it elsewhere....

I have eggs for my breakfast. I do not need eggs to have breakfast. Contradiction? It's primary school stuff.

The problem is that the kind of person his words are aimed at do not question what he is saying. They don't really listen to the detail. It's all blah-blah-god-blah. That's all they hear and want to hear. Perhaps I'm an an elitist and an intellectual snob too. I doubt it though, I'm nowhere near clever enough :-S

so god made the planet and the life on it and then waited 4.6 billion years to tell moses via a burning bush to lead his tribe into the promised land?
If he'd waited all that time then why not hang around another couple of thousand years and send him a text message?
