Re: Christening disaster

And if you were to give in, when would it stop? There's communion, confirmation, school and maybe a wedding in your little girl's future. Could you try a reasoned approach to your father - maybe even in a letter - telling him that you are doing for your daughter only what he did for you, that is, re...

Re: Humanists to get legal status for weddings

As far as I understand it, a confessional body is one where the members share a belief. It is usually used to mean a religion or sect.

Re: Humanists to get legal status for weddings

I'm wasn't calling for anything. I was just musing on why a non-religious organisation should get involved in the registration of marriages. Is there an element that because religions do it, we should do it too? Should AI get in on the act now as well as the HAI? By the way, the state ceremony is ve...

Re: Humanists to get legal status for weddings

Were you married on a Saturday?
I can't remember; I'd have to ask the other contracting party.
