Re: jury duty

They usually have the bible out but you can ask the court clerk for the secular affirmation rather than the religious oath. Do you think asking for this would increase or decrease the chances of making it onto the jury without the prosecution/defence challenging and having you removed? I would like...

jury duty

Hi all,

I got a letter a while back calling me up for jury duty, so will have to go and see if I'm picked for the jury.

Anyone any experience with this before? Did you swear an oath on the bible?!

Re: Shocking screen shot from Palin's website

Hopefully this will bring an end to Palin's bullshit gun totting rhetoric. Not a chance... America is very divided, and each side is blinkered. She won't lose a bit of support from those who already support her. Not surprisingly I suppose, the right wing have been mentioning that Jared Lee Loughner...

christmas cards

Out of 32 christmas cards we got so far this year, 2 have a religious picture on the front - the rest are snowmen or some other non-religious picture. Is this a meaningless ratio, or can it be read as people steering away from the religious side of the holiday and just seeing it as a time to relax a...

Re: Daughter doing holy communion this year.

Thanks lads for your replies, much appreciated. I asked my daughter if she wanted me to go - she said yes, but then asked me if I wanted to go. I told her I wasn't sure as I don't agree with a lot of stuff the church does, and I don't support them. So, she said "well Daddy, you'll just have to make ...

Daughter doing holy communion this year.

Hi all, Anyone got a kid in holy communion year in school? We have our eldest daughter preparing for it at the moment in the local catholic school. My wife wants her to do it, and naturally I'd prefer she didn't. I'd prefer if she was given a choice, and to me having a choice means that this is defe...

Peter Popoff

Just been killing a few brain cells flicking through the religious channels on Sky... Has anyone ever seen Peter Popoff's show before? How is this guy not in jail?! Basically he is promising to supernaturally wipe out your debt with his faith tool if you just call his number. Seriously! I wonder at ...

Re: apparitions

I thought it was a load of crap!

I was giving out within the first 5 seconds when I saw a banner on the bottom of the screen, saying that this was produced by "RTE Factual"...
