Laid Back Lounge / Re: Wish me luck as you wave me au revoir

Just arrived back home. At least I was able to keep up with HAF while I was in the UAE.

Thanks again for all the magic good wishes, thoughts, and prayers, fellow HAFers. I will need those again next month when I will be spreading the Good News to the delightful Omanis. I will be in the capital of Oman, Muscat, the last week in December.
Another good reason for not celebrating Christms then?

I don't need any reasons. The only part of my body that celebrates Christmas is my stomach.

OK, where do I find these body soothing cannibals then?

Yes, and I will need photos. Are they young and smooth?

Religion / Re: Solution to Northern Ireland?

The Irish government has it in it's hands to reunite Ireland if it wants to.

How could the Irish government reunite Ireland?

It's about invitation not coercion. The Irish government has to create a situation where the Irish born in the North want to express an Irish heritage more that a British one. The Irish government have got to stop seeing the Protestant/Catholic divide and emphasis birth (or inherited relations) as people being Irish. All people who are 'Irish' are automatically given citizenship irrespective of where they are born. All rights and privileges accorded to people in and from NI are accepted in Eire. Etc. etc. The Irish government apologises unreservedly for all damage done in the name of Irish independence. It allows MP's elected in NI to sit in an extended Irish parliament. It recreates Ireland as a political entity and essentially turns the British involvement in NI into a colonisation issue.

The Irish government has it in it's hands to reunite Ireland if it wants to.  They may not realise it. But if they put uniting Ireland through peaceful means an absolute priority it would happen. It would take a couple of generations but it could be done.

So the options are ghosts or cat-stapling giant rats?  Better hope it’s a ghost.
Just a regular size rat, not a giant one...or xSilverPhinx's paralyzed dog that has telekinetic powers that she doesn't know about.

Or there is a wormhole on her (clean) smooth granite counter.  :shifty:

But it's not a ghost.

Wish I could figure out a way to avoid these 5-way ties.  I'm not even going to put names in a hat -- I'm arbitrarily casting my tie-breaking vote for The Gospel According to Jesus Christ for our December read.  It just seems appropriate.  Go get your book.

Religion / Re: Religion as child abuse?

BookCatsEtc:
religion should be keep informal and personal.

But then how would you know just how wrong you are?

I think it doesn't necessarily make any difference if it's right or wrong, as long as it's useful to you and you keep it to yourself.

The key question is “does it inspire you to do good?”

I don't know that I would restrict it that much.  It would be great if X religion did inspire the believer to do good, but I think just giving them comfort is enough.
