Poor girl...
brentan comments on Jun 27, 2019:
Ah, I see her legs now.
I watched the BBC news and they discussed the way those children at the US border are being treated.
brentan comments on Jun 27, 2019:
I think it's happening because the threat to the immigration system is so big that if something is not done, they might as well just forget control and open the country to the world. Granted, what's being done at the moment is not the right response, to say the least. I'm told Obama had a different approach by not allowing the situation to develop. He just deported immigrants en masse. I think the government is desperately in need of ideas but the ideological divide hinders that happening.
Thought some would appreciate this

That was one of the good things about converting to Christianity. You started off with a clean slate. It was a good thing in Jung as well, if I understand him right about psychiatry telling people how to live from now on instead of Freud's focus on the past.

An exquisite piece of music. My only complaint is the constant repetition of 'fuck off' starting at 3.20. That takes away from it a bit.

Here's the lyrics with a translation. I was surprised to see mention of the Lotto in a trad song: Chorus (after each verse): A mhuirnin o an dtiocfaidh tu na bhaile A mhuirnin o an dtiocfaidh tu liom A mhuirnin o an dtiocfaidh tu na bhaile A mhuirnin o (Repeat) Bhi se thios i lar a' mhargaidh Dol se 's cheol se ar rith an lae Nuair a thainig an oiche gan pingin ina bhriste Is mairg nar ghlac me comhairle na mna Casadh orm e le heiri na greine An oganach gleoite go follain 's go beo Nuair a thog se a hata agus labhair se le gaire Thit me i ngra leis, chreid me go deo Bhi cnaipi airgid ar mo chota Is ribni sioda a bhfearr sa tir Slabhrai oir is clocha luachmhar Mheall me le saibhreas e go fior Ni rabhas ag a nduine ce'n phairt den tir e Labhair se go uasal soinneanta so Bhi 'n tiomba thart go raibh tiarna ina theaghlach Ni raibh se i bhfad bhi me geallta do Ta'n ceangal fada 's deacar a scaoileadh Bhfearr i bhfad a bheith cinnte do Nior ghlac se i bhfad gur bhris se mo chroi sa A leoga ni seo mo sceilin o A 'gur shiul se sios i lar a mhargaidh 'S cheannaigh se carda ar phunt no dho Bhi an tadh ina rith leis, bhain se an "lotto" Anois bheidh an chuideachta againn go deo Translation My darling love, will you come back home? My darling love, will you come with me? My darling love, will you come back home? My darling love He was down at the market He drank and sang all day long When night came and he hadn't a penny in his pocket Oh what a shame I didn't take the missus' advice I met him at sunrise A charming, healthy and lively young lad When he lifted his hat and spoke with a smile I fell in love with him, thought it would never end My coat had buttons of silver And the best silk ribbons in the country Golden chains and precious stones I truly enticed him with my glitter and gold No one knew from which part of the land he came He spoke nobly and with pleasant ease Rumor had it that there was a lord in his family It wasn't long 'til I was engaged to him The bond is long and difficult to untie It's much better to be sure of it* It didn't take long 'til he broke my heart Indeed this is not the story I'd prefer to be telling** But then he went back down to the market And bought a ticket for a pound or two Luck was on his side, he won the lottery Now we'll forever be living the good life *This might mean that the link to this nobleman was a very distant one, and that 'he' therefore was not rich - in fact quite poor; so she instantly regrets her engagement to him. **"A leoga" means "alas". "Ni seo mo sceilin" means "this is not my story" (or anecdote), and "o", when placed after the sentence like this, can just mean "oh", but it can also be a term of endearment, ...

Is Being Gay Wrong? - YouTube
brentan comments on Jun 25, 2019:
Faeces has a lot to do with it. Sex in the urinary tract is accepted because it also leads to the womb and I guess urine is thought of as less offensive than faeces. I don't think this is the basis for Biblical prohibition. The thrust of Biblical law had to do with how they perceived the purpose of a thing. And pleasure didn't come into it. You had sex to have children. How do we rationalise these things for our time? We've recognised the hygiene issues and advised on protection. We've decided that sex is about love and pleasure as well as procreation. I think the last frontier is the issue of faeces. 'I've emptied my bowels and laid out the towels' does nothing to reduce homophobia. So is it wrong? I see humans as human animals so I don't have highfalutin ideas about how we should behave. From an evolutionary perspective, we may well be doing excellently in our progress. From the traditional moral perspective, homosexuality is a fallen practice brought about by worship of idols (Romans Chapter 1).

brentan comments on Jun 25, 2019:
I like the old idea of respecting people. I think it comes from the Biblical idea that there is a spark of divinity in everyone. It's probably not really respect, more attributing a basic value to people before anything is really known about them.

Jehovah was never a sensitive god. I read that he meant not just offspring of ordinary unmarried people but the offspring of incestuous relations too. All God cared about was that the congregation was perfect, not just morally but also physically, because cripples were banned too. I'm fairly sure you wouldn't get in either if you were mad.

If that's right, I wonder how a person would know what type a legal decision is.

Possibly the greatest thought in opposition to the external God is William Blake's concept of God being internal, in man's imagination: I rest not from my great task! To open the Eternal Worlds, to open the immortal Eyes Of Man inwards into the Worlds of Thought: into Eternity Ever expanding in the Bosom of God, the Human Imagination. - Jerusalem, Plate 5, Lines 17b - 20. For a very critical assessment of Blake's religious ideas, I recommend John Vervaeke's YT video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Noc1OH0CUBc&t=45s
