When will the insanity end? [newsweek.com]
brentan comments on Feb 20, 2019:
That pope is a two-faced bastard.
Female digital assistants like Alexa and Siri remain popular in Silicon Valley.
brentan comments on Feb 20, 2019:
I'm using Alexa for a while and never thought of it like that. I have a choice of a few names so I use the name Echo for the second one, for no particular reason. But I believe the article's premise because I keep getting the feeling that every time law progresses social justice, the behaviour it's trying to improve gets channeled in a different way, sometimes underground.

[bbc.com] New at Dublin Churches
brentan comments on Feb 20, 2019:
Good luck with that. Hardly anyone goes into churches anyway.
I know this is well known and you have heard it before, but the setting is beautiful.
brentan comments on Feb 20, 2019:
I don't know much about this sort of music but the voices are beautiful and carry really well in that church. We probably should give the church more credit for the beauty it inspired.
Fun. Carry on [youtu.be]

brentan comments on Feb 20, 2019:
It's super when it happens. It's a pity that it's a hit and miss affair for most of us. We don't know how it happens so we can't regulate it. I guess that's what Buddhism is about.

Shockingly, being gay is a criminal act in 74 countries In a dozen countries, the punishment is ...
brentan comments on Feb 20, 2019:
My guess is that the underlying reason for the prohibition in Abrahamic religions was cleanliness. There wasn't much back then that wouldn't make a person ritually unclean. All body functions seemed to require ritual cleansing, sometimes sacrifice. But that wouldn't explain the decision to take the lives of homosexual people. I think there's another layer to this that is less obvious and that is the preoccupation back then that there was a relationship between objects that was spiritual in nature as well as physical. It showed itself in rules such as not mixing certain fabrics. Then there's the command not to allow a kid goat to be boiled in its mother's milk because milk was for nurturing, not killing. We don't relate to these ideas anymore as general concepts but nonetheless I still think the revulsion about male homosexual sex because it involves poop is always the elephant in the room when homosexuality is discussed. Curiously, nothing is said in the Hebrew scriptures about lesbian sex and that might be because the ritual uncleanness wasn't so obvious.
Believers need to take note.
brentan comments on Feb 20, 2019:
I can't believe how many years it took me to realise that history is proof that there is nobody heavenly interfering with human affairs. I really hope we wise up in time but but things look very bad at the moment.

The Band The night they drove old Dixie down, Live ,[youtube.com]
brentan comments on Feb 20, 2019:
Great song from a great band. Who would thought a song sympathetic to the South would resonate with so many people. I guess it's because it's written from the perspective of a man ending up on the losing side 'while the bells are ringing' for his defeat. There's something essentially tragic in that situation that we can all feel.
Watching a talk show last night I learned something interesting.
brentan comments on Feb 20, 2019:
I really wish singers would stick to music. In their cases, I use the word music lightly. But even skilled musicians like James Taylor get involved in politics and I really wish they wouldn't.

"Singing in the Rain," 1952. Gene Kelly singing the title song. I love this movie :) [youtu.be]

Imelda May. - Should’ve Been You. I really love this Irish gal! [youtu.be]
brentan comments on Feb 19, 2019:
She's a terrific singer but lots of us down here lost interest in her when she dumped her husband as soon as she got famous. She has struggled to get back ever since. I think she should go back to rockabilly.
Good god-dude-maybe we are saved, an hour ago it was announced that Bernie Sanders is running.

brentan comments on Feb 19, 2019:
The JW explanation is that Satan called into question God's right to rule over his creation. We need to hang in there and keep worshipping him until he proves to the whole creation that he is right and we can't do without him. Our suffering, like Job's, is just collateral damage.

brentan comments on Feb 19, 2019:
John Milton explains how angels bodily functions work. I'm sure it's the same for women. So down they sat, And to their viands fell, nor seemingly The Angel, nor in mist, the common gloss Of Theologians, but with keen dispatch Of real hunger, and concoctive heat To transubstantiate; what redounds, transpires Through Spirits with ease; nor wonder; if by fire Of sooty coal the Empiric Alchimist Can turn, or holds it possible to turn Metals of drossiest Ore to perfect gold As from the mine.

It's a strange thing that corporate industry is now becoming the equivalent of religious leaders. Did you ever see the likes of the hand-ringing Tim Cook preaching the morals of our new virtual society. I thought I was listening to the Archbishop of Canterbury.

brentan comments on Feb 19, 2019:
'gee' pronounced with a hard 'g' was a very common word for vagina when I was young. If I remember right, the French equivalent was trou, which basically meant hole and was how female captives were categorised. While it's accepted that these are fertility symbols, it's really curious how they ended up on Christian buildings and give them a Gothic look. One explanation is artistic license, deviously taking a shot at the large imposition of churches and cathedrals.

brentan comments on Feb 18, 2019:
I'm not so chirpy about these liberal churches. If you are a female member of the church, sure it matters and it is a good thing. But these churches muddy the waters on religion when they abandon the basic scriptural instructions not to murder. and to love others as themselves. I don't think it will help these churches to survive the liberal world. I think they'll implode under their own contradictions.
