brentan comments on Jul 13, 2019:
This thing about giving more to those who have is being called the 'Matthew Principle' online. Those who haven't, of course, get less. It's our culture's morality, I guess.
But can he play?
brentan comments on Jul 13, 2019:
He can probably slash to beat the band.

brentan comments on Jul 13, 2019:
My mum was not capable of showing much emotion. In her case, it wasn't narcissism. She was raised by a mum who spent all the time my mum was growing up in a wheelchair. So she was wrapped in her own problems and had little to give my mum. My mum's sisters were all much older than her and also gave very little. So that lack was passed on to us. I'm only bringing this up in case it might be relevant and some help.
I experienced profound sadness last night. I went to the local cigar lounge, which was having an ...

brentan comments on Jul 12, 2019:
It's looks very interesting and goodness knows we need a replacement for religious spirituality. I'm not optimistic at the moment. I fear that, like secular humanism, secular spirituality is only being taken up by a minority of intellectuals. He's probably preaching to the converted.

WRS | News | Prisoners go in strike to demand 'sex room'
brentan comments on Jul 12, 2019:
I wonder if they really have an actual moral/human right to have sex when in prison. Is it something to do with the pursuit of happiness? Does that apply?

brentan comments on Jul 12, 2019:
I'm not one bit confident that karma does it's job well. And I've lost the idea that wicked people will get their comeuppance in the next world. So I'm glad there's at least an effort by the justice system to put things right.
I actually LIKE laundry and ironing. I should hire out for the ironing.

brentan comments on Jul 11, 2019:
I think it is a case of monopolising suffering. Like the black monopolisation of slavery, this is a monopolisation of the concentration camp. I don’t think using the camps works in this situation because nobody would dare claim Trump intends to murder all the inmates. Of course it is dreadful, as was the incarceration of British troops in the Far East under the Japanese and the Japanese concentrated in camps in America during WW2. As for who has a legitimate claim to say how the Holocaust narrative should be used, I would imagine that ‘where you have two Jews, you will always have three opinions’ will always hold true.

What do people think of the theory that the universe is a living thing?

brentan comments on Jul 6, 2019:
I think the basic idea is that he is setting the world up for judgment in the future, which I believe they thought was coming within a generation. So there was no talk of judgment, sinners were embraced while the focus was on the good news of the gospels. But that was all to change when he came back.
