So, we've had insults to Religion and the American constitution; best not go to the bible belt for a while dr.bob;)


Oh well, there go my holiday plans :)

Hmm, I'm sure there must be someone else I can insult while I'm at it.

Questioning the American Constitution is likely to generate a response like that of a fundamentalist of any stripe when one challenges their Holy Book. I once had the temerity to do so on a message board devoted to Bruce Springsteen, suggesting they change the Constitution with reference to guns. I pointed out that the document was written by particular people at a particular time in history, and that hence it reflected certain conditions.
A lot of Bruce fans are similar in outlook to us QI folk, and, indeed, many agreed that gun crime over there is out of control; but to many of them the idea of a mere Brit suggesting they change Holy Writ was verging on blasphemy, and I suffered a certain amount of fairly unpleasant abuse!

The question was raised earlier in this thread of people who live sin-free lives, but without knowledge of God; when I was a lad growing up in a Catholic milieu, they told me about Limbo: a place where a fair degree of bliss may be found, but without the blessing of the Almighty. Pretty good, but not quite Heaven. Last exit on the Celestial Highway before you get to Hell.

Limbo was abolished last year. Perhaps you weren't paying attention.

You'll still be allowed to do the dance though, as long as you take your halo off.

I tend not to pay great attention to matters Catholic.. something to do with being seriously lapsed!
As for the dance, my horns and forked tail might get tangled in the bar if I tried to get too low.

I'm afraid this is the problem I have with the US of A. One may not challenge them on guns, on the fact that their last but one Presidential election was rigged, or on their denial that global warming exists, without just receiving a barrage of abuse.

Actually I have quite a few other issues with the USA as well, but it doesn't change the fact that some of my best friends are American!

For sure no country is perfect, but the fact that I saw a US spokesman on CNN describe the British government as "socialist" says it all ...


Back to religion, chaps ...

Baptism backlog abolished at a stroke, fast track introduced for 'innocents' in cataclismic catechismic carve up. The full story inside.
