wingnut396: dartben: orclover: Obama's Reptiloid Master: baka-san: out of a population of 5.1million, Scotland has only 700 practising Christians.Listen, you need a better sample than just the vicars near closing time at the local/what the hell is is practising anyway.What they mean to say is "700 people who practice Christianity as bumblefark hicks from Alabama practice it."700? Are they all in a club? Are they not counting Catholics as Christians?Lots of evangelical protestants don't believe Catholics are Christians. My wife's grandfather met a priest at a hospital and thereafter told his daughter/my mother-in-law, "Did you know that some Catholics are Christians too?" True story./Catholic//of the recovering variety.///slashiesWhen we moved into our current house, the welcoming committee from the local Baptist church stopped by one day. When asked where we would attend church, I told them we were Catholic (family is Catholic-ish) and would attend that church. On my part, this is admittedly to just get them to go away.Anyway, one of the blondie twins says "Oh, but we're a CHRISTIAN church"...
The Evil That Lies In The Hearts Of Men: CSB:A while ago the wife and I were living in Scotland, being new to the area we went down the local church even though neither of us was particularly religious. Growing up "Church" had always been pretty chilled out stuff about being nice and how Jesus loves us all and with community events around Christmas and Easter. Anyway... this place was seemed a little more evangelical and conservative than we expected but nothing too odd until a day trip to Holy Island. It's a part time Island in the north of England that is completely cut off from the mainland every time the tide comes in. So we get there, do a little tour and watch the tide come in, cutting off the only road off the island...and then the pastor turns and says "So... speaking in tongues..." and then things got weird.
amishkarl: Karac: You know what? I'm a book hoarder. I avoid libraries. I don't sell them. There's been months where I spend more at Barnes & Nobles than on the rent. I'm moving in a new place and have started a catalogue as I move my collection in. It's up to 1100 - so far.And you know what? If someone handed me a creationist 'science' book I'd be torn between using that farker as kindling or to wipe my ass.fellow book hoarder here, although my library is only about 400. (I'm poor). I've got a couple of religous books (they were free) propping up the busted leg on my favourite reading chair.

BitwiseShift: It's a diversion from their real purpose -- the importing of poisonous snakes into Scotland.

phalamir: I don't think there are 700 Protestants worldwide who count Catholics as Christians
Karac: I'm not rich; I've just started in the mid-80's.And I've got absolutely nothing against religious books. But religiously-based science textbooks - that's an offensive waste of paper, ink, glue, and brain cells.
trotsky: Like the Scots care. Pfffttt.They'll tell these self-righteous morons to go fark themselves and proceed to get smashed at the local while watching some obscure sport where large men pound each other into the ground.

Can't be rugby...[news.bbcimg.co.uk image 624x351]...because the world plays rugger (here's Leeds from England, who beat the Manly Sea Eagles in 2012 and lost to the Melbourne Storm this year). And here...[www.nrllivestream.com.au image 594x433]...is the New Zealand Warriors taking on Brisbane Broncos.So: not the world-known and totally not obscure rugby.
