This is taken right in front of the Alcazaba in Almeria.

I'm 65 years old. I was born and raised a Roman Catholic, being Irish. As an adult, I was a Jehovah's Witness for about fifteen years. I'm separated for the last three years. I have two sons who are both grown up and living their own lives. I'm an avid reader, fascinated by mythology, religion and psychology. I love all kinds of music, play video games and watch TV. I exercise under duress. Although technically bisexual now, I have never had any homosexual interest during my married life (perhaps it was repressed) and don't want to start now. I would like to meet a woman to share my life with, to talk and share and laugh and have sex and make life worthwhile as the world goes mad around us.

Arresting that awful sinner is the Christian thing to do.

I was reading a book about zombies and came across a link to, of all things, an episode of The Twilight Zone called The Monsters Come To Maple Street. It's about the residents of a peaceful 1950s-type street turning on each other out of fear. I couldn't help relating it to the polarised ideologies tearing society apart these days. It's in 5 short parts. Here's the link to Part 1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xQMh3junewQ

brentan comments on Jul 27, 2019:
I couldn't resist posting all the words. This album came out when I was a teenager dealing with a nervous breakdown. JT was a great comfort to me when nothing else was helping: Long ago, a young man sits And plays his waitin' game But things are not the same It seems as in such tender dreams Slowly passing sailing ships And Sunday afternoons Like people on the moon I see Are things not meant to be Where do those golden rainbows end? Why is this song so sad? Dreaming the dreams I've dreamed my friend Loving the love I love to Love is just a word I've heard When things are being said Stories my poor head has told me Cannot stand the cold And in between what might have been And what has come to pass A misbegotten guess alas And bits of broken glass Where do your golden rainbows end? Why is this song I sing so sad? Dreaming the dreams I've dreamed my friend Loving the love I love To love to love to love Oh no no no

brentan comments on Jul 27, 2019:
This is what I believed as a Jehovah's Witness. Jesus was a lesser divinity even though he was 'begotten, not made' like all other creation. I suppose the Church felt Jesus had to be fully human so that he could compensate for the sin of Adam- otherwise, it wouldn't be a fair propitiation. I can't remember what the problem was with being a lesser divinity. Maybe it didn't sit right with the Trinity idea.
Is it just me or do Christian movies always have terrible acting?

brentan comments on Jul 25, 2019:
Saint Kevin knew what to do when he met a wanton woman: 'Another story about his choice of celibacy relates to his time of training at Kilnamanagh. A young woman saw him with his companions in the fields and fell passionately in love with him and pursued him in many ways but he resisted her advances. One day she came on him alone and embraced him and asked him tenderly to lie with her. Kevin rushed away and finding a bed of nettles, stripped off his clothes and rolled himself in them naked. When she further pursued him, he quickly dressed, took up a bunch of nettles and beat her off. She, realising the hopelessness of her quest, quickly repented and went off herself to become a nun. Probably the story shows that at the heart of Kevin’s quest for holiness there was a real struggle'. https://www.catholicireland.net/saintoftheday/st-kevin-of-glendalough-498-618/
