And i dont mind if you turn this into a political thread against mad cowboy Bush
Mad cow disease should be exterminated.
Martijn, sorry you have the false illusion that God himself will keep Notre Dame standing. It costs lots of money to maintain something that old and big.
There are other ways than to demand money to listen to sick prayers. What the pope says is controversial to say the least. And they demand a fee to enter anyway. And the city of Paris gives them money. Asking money for burning a candle, that I can understand. It's just the commercial part of it (the coins, prayers) that bothers me. And I don't have the false illusion that God will keep the Notre Dame or Sacré Coeur standing, as I don't have the illusion that God exists anyway.
And 15 calls a day from telemarketeers? I already get annoyed if I get one a day..
Those Jehowah Witnesses belief in their religion like I belief in mine.
They can believe whatever they like, but they don't have to go on a crusade to convince others of their mighty religion, which is the only correct one. And there is no need for being so pushy either, as it is counterproductive. If the just practise their religion quietly, I am sure that they would have more sincere followers than they have now.
I really wish religions would not clash like football teams and accept and respect and Iza was spot on about Bush, he is probably biggest stirrer and trouble maker when it comes to world religion.
Maybe one day God will sponsor Manchester United, Buddha coaches Arsenal, Allah manages Liverpool and so on..
