    Sorry you didn't understand me Amuse - I didn't realise I was being obscure. I simply meant President Bush's voice would send the kids plus everyone else to sleep. Haven't read any other threads concerning religion versus politics..but not that interested anyway, it was just a thought that occured to me. The posts on the subject must have been before I joined.

    With the current political climate being as volatile as it is, mentioning Bush in any context is an invitation to passionate debate, and I agree fully that recent politics have nothing to do with literature or personal insight, and should therefore be kept out of the forum.

    Religious texts, on the other hand, are a major part of the literary history of all cultures. Therefore, the discussion of religion can be very interesting and valuable --providing, of course, that the debate adheres to the subject of a specific religious text or passage, and doesn't veer off into moral crusades or feelings/intent of personal offense. And that it stays in the Religious Texts forum, so as not to provoke those who don't wish to take part.

    I think Admin and the members here together have done remarkably well at maintaining an atmosphere of tolerance and respect. Certainly far beyond the petty bickerings of all other boards I've encountered.

    If one was to cook Admin, do you think he'd crisp easily?

    I wasn't commenting on Bush's politics of which I know nothing..nor anything of the current political climate in America...merely on Mr Bush's boring voice and long speeches.

    I think that there is very little difference between the merits or otherwise of discussing politics or religion and both are valuable in the context of history...and in fact are inseparable expecially in Britain where the church and state have been linked since time immemorial. It would be impossible to discuss the religious differences between protestand and catholic fraternities and the contention it brings in Northern Ireland without reference to politics and it's political history. These are extremely complex and it would be impossible to discuss any history of Northern Ireland without reference to both. But anyway...this thread looked like fun and was fun but this is getting serious...

    Does this mean you have three cats Ajoe...your cat, it's sister and it's kitten? But anyway..we only think we own cats..they know better. Cats are clever, cunning, arrogant, cruel - soft eyed, affectionate, dependent and extremely lovable for some strange reason.

    i think one must be careful there too, miranda. discussions of cats tend to get almost as heated as ones of politics...although, it shouldnt be too bad with kik missing. i miss kik.

    Why do people compliment my hair when I've put the least effort into it?

    Cause you look so wild and free.
    Why do people always feel the need to tell me my hair is long? People, it's hair. It grows. It doesn't take any kind of special effort to not cut it.

    Really? Hypothetically, you mean.
    Well, you'll get your chance this weekend. I'll be gone from Friday till Monday.
