Oh Lord how they make me laugh, and I'm technically a Protestant (sort of Welsh Baptist mixed with Church of England). If I was a NI catholic, however, I would want these people to march down my road every year. I'd serve up toffee apples for the kids and we'd all sit on deck chairs in the front garden as the ejeets went by.

Guys, if you bend over backwards much further to be polite to each other you'll have an accident. It's all very commendable, but please... stand tall and pull faces. Much healthier. Thank you.

And to be serious for a moment: Lugh, I'd leave all those messages there if I were you, as it's a good example of how things can nearly blow up but with a bit of common sense and politeness they can be resolved and civilised behaviour can resume.

Slightly off topic, but sort of relevant: there's a lady in the newspaper today who's given birth to twin boys; one white, one black. Now there's a solution to a whole load of problems in the world today. Trouble is, it only happens about once in every million births.

They do mate. They do. That's the problem. They haven't got with the programme yet. They haven't accepted that everyone has a bloodied history that's loaded with shameful acts of barbaric inhumanity. Instead, they perpetuate it and sing about it and make it out to be a celebration. What the fuck is the matter with them?

Even the British, who they claim to be aligned to, can't work them out. They should not be funded as a cultural voice either historically or as a present day reflection of progreesive culture. They're dinosaurs. Nor should anyone from any equally militant Nationalist voice be given any credence or funding. Fostering hope and drawing on our similarities is the only way forward, always...

No you wouldn't. It normally pisses down with rain. Maybe that's why they wear those stupid looking hats :wink: ...

At least Nature has a great sense of humour lmfao :P 8) ...

True in every respect. So, here's a series of pulled faces :P :shock: 8) :lol: :evil: :roll: :oops: :P ...

Aye, understood Delph, but it's a bit more difficult to have children born of different faith/religion. That's a disorder they develop through exposure to idiots in their imprinting days...

Cool picture btw :D ...

Looks like most things have been said already. So i'll just chuck my pennyworth's in for the sheer hell of it!

Veils, no. For the same reason that i don't like talking to people with hoodies up, or wearing a balaclave, or a hockey mask, or sunglasses inside or when it's not sunny, etc. Religion is irrelevant to my feelings on it, it's more about being able to clearly see who you are trying to communicate with.

Religion in schools?
