Likewise with the traditional Irish Catholic mother.... how many Irish mothers do you know that don't "believe" (if only they could THINK!) that a "good smack" or "feeding on time" or "good behaviour" etc etc isn't "good" for their children? You know how it goes: "It didn't do us any harm, so..." W...

Re: Census 2006

Actually, to understand the relatively small number of self-declared 'atheists' and 'agnostics' in the Census Results you need to look at the Census Form itself. The form, under the question 'What is your religion' only allowed for a small number of options to be chosen. Option 6 was 'Other', and i...

Hello CatHerder, Yes, I agree I can be a bit aggressive at times, and I apologise for my OTT outbursts. I'm normally quite diplomatic, but always assertive, so I can't do much about the way my assertiveness might sometimes make others feel intimidated :wink: Its just that I'm a woman in a very mach...

Hi Catherder, Thanks for the offer of moderating but I'm afraid I'll have to decline. I don't believe I'm equal to the task because I don't trust myself not to become embroiled in the arguements in a partial manner.

I'm afraid that I get really bored in a conversation where people spend most of the time agreeing with each other. It is a habit that I picked up as a teenager. If I'm in a group, whatever the viewpoint going round is, it is great fun to disagree with it. There is a mate of mine does the same thing...
