Bullfighting is nothing less than animal cruelty at its finest.
First step breedable strictly to be killed for amusement.
Now torture same bull with spikes to the back and irritate this poor creature that they think God created.
Entered the flashing Matador with his shiny sword woo hoo
Stab bull in the heart when exhausted and claim victory. Over the helpless animal? Real macho!
Totally disgusting and shameful for human beings to actually do this toward a harmless animal
I don't agree with it. It's a hangover from ancient times, when they used to sacrifice the bulls.

Cockfighting is also cruel, as are illegal dog fights.

Very good indeed. Went to great party on Saturday where the host hired a very good sleight of hand magician called Laura London. She's very good indeed, in fact she was the youngest female to make it into the Magic Circle (aged 17). It's the second time she'd performed for us. Highly recommended.

Last time I saw her, she was leaving ours to perform at an open coffin wake. The cool side of catholicism!

How about you?

What I.S did to James Foley is abhorrent, rest assured that his execution is seen as cowardly and repulsive by the vast majority of Brits. The sooner the perpetrator is identified and brought to justice (preferably the less tolerant US justice) the better.
However American patriotism?
Ahh you mean like those patriotic Americans who killed my grandfather
My grandfather was a British agent working with the French resistance to help pave the way for the D Day landings.
He was shot in the head by invading US troops for daring to protest and try to protect a French girl (another resistance member assisting the landings) from being gang raped by 6 of those US troops.
So in you view rape is patriotic?
Now that is a shocking story. Even when the opposition is as evil as they were in WWII, atrocities happen on both sides.

I spent most of the weekend in bed with what I think is bronchitis. First time I have had it (hopefully the last) and being a bank holiday I canít get a doctorís appointment until Thursday.

Between coughing fits and naps I did manage to catch Rosberg losing all credibility, no wonder both Hamilton and Wolff are a bit peed off with him

Iíve not been to an open coffin wake but have attended one or two Irish style wakes recently. The last, the guy who had died left 10K behind the bar with instructions to hire a couple of bands (one ceili one heavy rock Ė old men can still surprise) and make sure everyone has a great time to remember him by. Misnomer... I really donít think many people remember much at all.

Conversation with God:

Was my mother a sinner?
God: yes
What did she do?
God: she was born
So being born is automatically a sin?
God: yes
Why did you do that?
God: Dad and I agreed she owes us for giving her life
Why didn't you create her perfect without any defect?
God: and give up my master creation of hell ? are you kidding? Even gods have a Caveat every now and then. Anymore questions?
No thank you, you have confirmed you are inferior Gods, I will appeal to Zeus to pardon you for your many sins.
I am right

Interesting story. Several years,ago I corresponded with an old timer on a physics forum that was a youngster during the Nazi occupation of Holland or Belgium, can't remember which. But he related how after the Americans first came through a young woman who ran up cheering was dragged into the back of a truck and gang raped by American troops. There were evidently other incidents, yo, because that really affected him. He said the Germans never did such a thing. German officers would execute troops on the spot.

You say Hitler was a devout Christian?

Had another old timer friend that was in the Army amphibious corps in the Pacific and wound up occupying Japan. Young Japanese girls were bought from their familues and lived on the boats. They did more than clean. Until MacArthur issued an order that slavery was a caoital offense. Overnight there were thousands of young Japanese girls suddenly homeless.

A little bit about MacArthur's religious beliefs.

Of course you also have the well known "Kum, Frau of occupied Berlin.

America was secular, so was Russia.

Why do you need to excuse it to the NT? The god of christianity and his actions were written first in the Tanakh, carefully selected and edited for the babble OT and later in the Quran. Christian teaching is based on the OT or is it that you believe in Christ but you do not believe in the god for the christian faith?
Allah, Jehovah, El etc... all the same god so it is your understanding that El is kicking himself? You ignorant moron...
What it lookís like to a bigoted and deliberately ignorant hate merchant like you is pretty much irrelevant.
Even Jews acknowledge a distinction from Christ Followers.

Neither Jews or Christians accept Allah as the same as God.

Again, what passage in the NT guided that behavior?

Smile.

Yes being brutalised and gang raped by the people who claim to have come to save you can be a bit of a downer

Do not try putting words in my mouth, it seems you have been too long talking to buck and itís turning you into a liar. I never said he was devout.

As secular as god bless America can be.

Yes the Jews follow the book that say Christ was the bastard son of a roman soldier, one of the bits that was omitted from the OT for some reason.

Funny really because the Tanakh, the OT and the Quran do accept their gods as the same god, and as far as I know, all true believers in the abrahamic god admit that there god is the abrahmic god... that included jews, christians and muslims

Just because you are either a selfish moron who denies other people their belief because it upsets your sensibilities or you are just an ignorant bigot is not my problem. It seems that you are denying the OT in the name of your personal belief of what your religion is as opposed to what it actually is??? Go figure, what are you going to call this latest version of christianity when it is added to the other 48,000 different version?
