Go to: Religious Freedom in Military Questioned

I've given your points serious thought. Perhaps I have allowed my sense of 'liberty first above all' cloud my judgement on this one. I was aware of Abu Hamza al-Masri, but have read up on him and similar toads alot more and yes, I agree these people should be open to prosecution anbd that 'freedom of speech' in these cases should not be without consequence.

Go to: Blair converts to Catholicism

USA_Limey's Avatar Jump to comment 7 by USA_Limey

I campaigned for the Labor Party under Blair in 1997. I knew absolutely nothing about his faith at that time. Would it have changed my decision to campaign for them? Probably not,but later, when we learned the extent to which his faith 'guided' him on decisions such as Iraq I did start to become uneasy about the man.

It most definitely should be a topic open for discussion in future elections.

Go to: The Pagan Christ

Can't wait to get home I think I am going to like this...

Christianity has always been a house of cards on a terrible foundation. This is my favourite approach to tackling the religious.

I'm with you allan.Why waste your energy on someone you will never convince.


Be we can't know that for sure. Some of our finest posters here have told us they were once believers.

Brian is one of our best - and he used to be a missionary!

So I think its always worth the time to try. Or in my case someone elses time - I just sit back and read the excellent work of Brian, Steve, Epeeist, Doc Benway and many others! Can we ever know what seeds they sow out there....


[EDIT - in a moment of self introspection I realised this was not always my view; so this site has mellowed me. I didn't want any of my 'Dawkins/McGrath/Danielos Geordinos/ posts being thrown back at me. (Though that would have been justified)]
