Jono,

Thanks for the rant. What brought it on particularly? Was it frustration with Geldorf's antics? Or Blair / Brown cynical media manipulation? This is not a party political rant - I find the Conservatives just as cynical

More harm has been done by man to humanity in the ‘name of God’ than almost any other cause. So don’t tell me that god is the answer. Des

As Dave Allen used to say "May YOUR God go with you"!!!!

Last week, whilst enjoying my good fortune and touring areas of Europe not so well visited by “tourists” I came upon a very modest memorial in the mountains for a concentration camp I had never heard of. I suddenly realised how pathetic my moaning was in face of the unbelievable suffering meted out on innocent people. I never appreciated quite how many of these camps existed, nor how many people suffered in them. Makes you think though, doesn’t it…….?
A thoughtful post Jono.

I suppose there are two choices when we come upon incidents of racism...(from the slight to the extreme)...

One is to ignore. And one is to object/do something about it.

(There is a price to pay either way.)

Just to add my 2 peneth. If you look into it you will find that what might be referring to relates to believers in other faiths, and not Christians. Don't make the mistake of dismissing Christianity because of what "other people" do. Hey, why not look into it. What have you got to lose? If it is a load of rubbish then at least you will come to an informed decision and who knows you may just disc over what the real "big picture" is.
