    So first you quote Scripture out of context to make it sound like a commandment when in fact it was a character in a story Jesus was telling.
    Now you're shifting the goalposts and talking about what the parable is about. Incorrectly of course, that isn't the main message of the parable.

    I’m saying there’s numerous examples of Jesus behaving in a way that in any modern context would see him labelled a maniac. Your argument is based on the belief (the false one in my view) that The New Testament is not simply of its time and its words which may be inspiring then seem to be a signposting towards despotism

    And the Parable is about how he will occupy a heavenly throne, but that people need to accept him as their saviour now and those that do not are simply denying the truth to themselves and whether he’s talking about earthly punishment or eternal they will suffer for their failure to acknowledge him

    No it isn't.

    No it isn't.

    Expect a lot of these kind of laws to be passed by Labour, no money to actually enforce them and will have the unintended consequence of loads of vexatious claims from the removal of the grey area

    Don’t get me wrong, I don’t think it’s particularly clever to smack a child. I just don’t think it should be placed in the same category as beating the living fuck out of a child. And laws like this often are too zealous to make the distinction

    It's already been banned in Wales. It seems a bit strange. I mean, I don't think anyone thinks children should be beaten - well, if they do then there's already laws to deal with that.

    I had a very important work trip last week.
    It was definitely not a jolly.
    It was in Cairo and I cleverly arranged for an early evening flight on the day I was leaving which gave me the morning and early afternoon to go to the pyramids.
    It was brilliant. 5 stars. Would recommend

    I’d heard about that! It is a bit disappointing how close that is but actually it didn’t spoil the experience. Most of the complex is away from that so the pyramids do feel like they’re in the middle of nowhere. You can see the city but it’s not as intrusive as I’d imagined from aerial shots.

    In fairness to her, doctor shouldn’t have made that assumption…there are dating sites that cater for all tastes these days…so there must be one for crippled mutants to find each other
