After I left the SCC my wife stayed in for a while, the Mishies were never off the door step. insisting I stay in the room other wise they could not be there for my wife (devious buggers). So I stayed but told them flat, I don't want to be involved, BUT they kept asking me things, soliciting my opinion. So I let them have it with both barrels, paedophilia, polygamy, book of Abraham, teachings of Brigham Young, racist ban on black, blood atonement, Adam God doctrine, DNA, archaeology. After half an hour the Utah mishie, screams at me, "Your not going to convert me, your not going to damage my faith, an starts baring his testimony over and over like a broken record, while weeping profusely. The Irish Mishie companion, goes red with embarrassment and excuses them both, literally dragging his companion out of our house, one and only time I've known them leave without a prayer. This incident set my wife on the path to leaving to, after a few months of reading on the net on the net and mumbling "they did WHAT? The bastards"" she too went apostate.

Being asked to follow the same rules everyone else does, is not racism it is social responsibility and participation. I'm afraid that when **any** group of people go to a public facility and expect special treatment, for rules to be set aside for them, to be allowed to ignore a dress code, and basically to demand privileges based only on their devotion to an ancient myth. They **ARE** troublemakers

Gorgo and Me by Len Hazell Just when you think your day cannot get any worse, when you've got your first acting job in months and your car breaks down, when you break a heel on your last pair of heels and the cat decides to be sick in your flats; that... that is the day you nearly get run down in the street by a truck driven by an ass in a gorilla suit. I got up, dusted down my tuchas, and marched up to the window. “What in the Hell do you think you are doin'” I demanded. He rolled his eyes a bit in what I assume was an act of contrition, but since those were the only bit of the real him showing, it was a pretty wild guess. “ You Selena?” he asked in a muffled voice from under the mask. “How'd you know my name?” I demanded. The big ape then pulls off his own head and reveals himself. I'll be honest I seen worse, bit of a fuggly face, but smiling a big dumb good natured smile. “Who's askin'” I demanded. “ My name's George,” he said. “Phil asked me to come get you, said you got car trouble or somethink.” Typical of the way my luck was running, I swore off movies, especially B-movies back in the forties, I'm stage now, legit theatre, but this wunderkind asks the old man for a favour and I get strong armed. Heart o'gold that's me, heart o' gold and at the end of the day a hundred bucks is a hundred bucks. “Okay, I'm Selena, thanks for knocking me on my butt Cheater.” Monkey boy grins and leans over to open the door for me. I tried to make a dignified show of going around the hood of the pick up to get in to what looked Noah's own pick up truck and sat down. “Where we goin'?” I asked. “Bronson Canyon.” he tells me wrenching the gears. I sighed, no surprise there, every wannbe film hack who can point a camera films in Bronson Canyon, that pit can be anywhere from Arabia to the surface of the moon and has been. I pulled the script out of my bag and took another look at it, MONSTER FROM MARS by Wyott Ordung, I read. There's a name to inspire confidence. He looked over and grunted. “That's been changed,” he told me. “The whole script?” I asked. “Nah,” he laughed. “Just the title, the flick is now called ROBOT MONSTER FROM OUTTER SPACE catchy huh?” “Yeah, like lice.” As if to agree George began scratching his hairy body suit. “I'm the Robot Monster.” He declared proudly pounding his breast. “You're dressed as a gorilla.” I pointed out. He grinned that big lovable grin again but had the decency to blush a little. “Yeah I know.” he replied. “It's my own suit, that's why I got the part. See Phil wanted a real robot, but like that costs a lot, so he has this brilliant idea and calls me.” “So why isn't it called gorilla monster from outer space then?” ...

Who is the true Mormon?
LenHazell53 comments on Aug 2, 2018:
Not the first time, SWK also called the teaching of BY that Adam was God incarnate an abomination. It is interesting to not though that while Bring'em Young is still honoured as the second prophet of the church, not one single, not any original teaching of Brigham Young is considered doctrine by the LDS anymore and most of his teachings if practiced at all (or even advocated) are considered grounds for excommunication. The man was a foul, bigoted, murderous, syphilitic, horror of a human being, who was probably murdered in a conspiracy between three of his wives and his doctor to poison him by an overdose of arsenic.

Catholic Church: Women are to Blame for Pedophile Priests
LenHazell53 comments on Jul 29, 2018:
Yes this was Cardinal Burke, or should that be Berk ( as in cockney rhyming slang Berkley Hunt) back in 2015, the same silly twat who has said abortion should be a capital offence, that the Pope knows less about catholicism than he Burke the nerk does and that the Pope should have been honest and told that little boy his father was writhing in agonising hell fire forever, because that is what is happening to him and that all homosexuals are paedophiles. He I believe is also on record as saying that it would be better for gays to commit suicide as God is more likely to allow a suicide out of Hell, than a sodomite, becaus they at least had made an effort to try and stop sinning. He is a bucket full of charm that one.
Silly beliefs.
LenHazell53 comments on Jul 29, 2018:
As a former Mormon, there are so many insane beliefs I could not list them all. But for example Bigfoot is the eternally cursed Cain son of Adam wandering the earth till Judgement day Satan has power over water so swimming is a dangerous pass time for the devout God lives on a planet orbiting the Star Kolob at the centre of the galaxy There is a Mrs God The Adam God Doctrine is both true and an abominable lie, depending on which prophet you believe, even though both are guided *by* God That special underwear bought in the temple will not only protect your junk from Satan, but is bulletproof Inter racial marriage should be punished by putting both partners to death There is no such thing as homosexuality, just the choice to sin.

"Or else he will surely die" Tonto rides back to the lone ranger and looks at his friend writhing in agony on the ground. "What did the doctor say?" asks the masked man. Tonto gets down on his knees and takes his friends hand and quietly speaks "Him say you going to die kemosabe."

It is a common mistake, popularised by bad illustrations but the Titan Atlas was not condemned by Zeus to hold up the world, but to hold up the sky. He was made to stand on "the western edge of Gaia" and support the sky on his shoulders. The presumption in the myth is that the world is flat not round. The disk that atlas carries in pictures and sculpture in not the world but the night sky,

LenHazell53 comments on Jul 25, 2018:
the storage of cannon ball, was never on deck it was in the area of the hold known as the gun deck or gun wark, it was made of wood not brass and was called the 'shot garlands'. The phrase seems have actually been derived from the expression "Hot enough to melt the nose h'off a brass monkey" Herman Melville's Omoo, 1847 and simply reversed. The Brass Monkey itself is an English civil war term for a small portable field (not naval) cannon known as a Brasse Munkey or a Drake (presumably after Sir Francis) that was wheeled about on an early version of ball bearings. Munkey or more likely Moncky was probably the inventor.

My opinions are based on my best available knowledge and information. They are subject to change only if proven wrong or modified with further evidence.
Not a virtue.

Faith is blind Faith is only sadness, Faith is total madness, Wit has gone away. Faith is lies, How well we remember In the heat of sacred fervour Prudence dies How long will it take? Till we can’t remember Truth they said we should avert? We’ve been trying Since we did convert. Faith is blind Faith no variation Faith is "You are mine now, And you never will decry." Faith is blind Faith has no perspective And we’re slowly dying Here in days gone by At the sunrise Wake up to the sound of screaming No one else will scream for thee sadly it’s not over Truth won’t let us be. Faith is blind, Faith it is your prison, Faith makes your decision Freedom gone away. Faith is lies How well we remember In the heat of sacred fervour Prudence dies.
Re my note on Buddhism. Here's the quote.

Is there a tomorrow? Indeed, we are living in it now for every today is yesterday's tomorrow and tomorrow's yesterday.
I need to release some steam.

Ask a "love and Peace" Christian about the Midianites, if they know about them they will scream Old Testament and refuse to talk, if they do, they will ask you what about them and then scream Old Testament and refuse to talk further. Perhaps the worst war crime in the bible, a tribe sues for peace, God orders them to be circumcised, they comply and while "recovering" the Israelites God orders the wholesale slaughter of all the men, married women and boys and the enslavement of the virgin women and to take the young girls as sex slaves. THAT is the god of peace and love, the father of a son who was tortured to death so that daddy could forgive people for the fact that thousands of years before a nuddy woman ate the wrong apple because a talking phallic symbol told her to. How does any one still take this shit seriously as a moral guide line for life.
If Jesus was a real person, was he the first magician?

None of Jesus' conjuring tricks had not been done before in earlier Jewish texts or mythology, like wise his teachings, even if all of this is true it still makes him nothing more than a popular street entertainer who like other popular entertainers of today started thinking he had the right to interfere in politics and got his comeupance when he pissed off the wrong people.
