  1. I was a pupil at De La Salle college, which was demolished around 1980, I can't believe I wasn't there cheering the demolition people on If my memory serves me correctly the staff and pupils of De La Salle were transferred down to the newly renamed All Saints in 76. Just for the record some of us don't share your opinions. One of the benefits of this was that All Saints inherited some first class staff and on the whole the pupils education benefited. Ingrained into me via this system was fairness, integrity, respect and belief in a universal inclusion, maybe I was one of the lucky ones.
  2. They land on our road tomorrow, Intake again. We've one road in and out, that's going to be fun!
  3. Tomorrows the big day 11.30 till 4 at Our Lady of Lourdes 30 Springwater Avenue Hackenthorpe Sheffield S12 4HJ Should be a good afternoon. All welcome.
  4. Be lovely to see you again Smithy, sorry for the delay in replying I've been down with a stomach bug recently!
  5. RIP Jo you were a shining example of a conviction politician,wife and mother.
  6. HI All It's the annual summer fayre at Our Lady of Lourdes, Hackenthorpe on the 16th of July and once again were looking to incorporate a small classic or cherished vehicle gathering.......just like last year. It's a very informal event that will usually run between 12-4pm so can make a nice afternoon out when combined with all the stuff that's going on:).
  7. I wouldn't suggest that there's any animosity suggested in your post and you certainly seem to know more about the bible than me but I'm going to have to chip in at this point and ask you to consider the difference between faith and belief. Ghostrider your assuming that all Christians just believe but this is only a part of it. Christianity is based in faith of and in Jesus Christ not simply belief in holy books. The inference that the following silence of those you've criticised proves you right surprises me by the simplicity of the point, and also the convenience it lends to your argument. There's probably a multitude of reasons why they don't leap back into discussion! some of which may be that they have a productive existence away from this forum. So try to understand the FAITH side of it before defaulting down the belief/ holy book route. For what it's worth you can discuss various parts of the bible until your blue in the face and still manage to fall out over it. That's something that's been happening for centuries and in my experience is still going on! And finally " the upper hand" is generally used in the context of a controlling or dominating environment and in all the time I've been on this forum I don't think that allegation is suitable or applicable to Teeny
  8. Well that's a pretty damning endictment, 99.999% chose to forget! Seems a bit harsh on non christians in general. There's also plenty of Christians out there that forget what the Bible includes! In truth most of us occasionally! However please don't think I'm directing this down the hate and ridicule path because I'm certainly not. As a Christian / Catholic I value the importance of the Bible but I believe it's just as important to lead through a life of good work and example. It doesn't matter how much time you spend pouring over words, if your not translating them into deeds you might as well reside in a closed monastery! Furthermore don't get hung up on Atheists, they've been around since Noah was a lad and in reality most of them have never clearly defined there status between agnostic and atheist.
  9. I think you misunderstood the post, the third element as I understand it ( highlighted) referred to your original post (
  10. Bulldog D, That is a very pertinent point. In England we are fed a version of Christianity that often differs dramatically from the other traditionally Christian countries in Europe. It is like we are not meant to think or find anything out for ourselves. Many other countries in Europe have a simpler outlook to Christianity than we British. For instance the Church and state are clearly defined and enjoy a healthy separation in most European countries be they Catholic or Protestant in basis. In ours, the head of the official Christian Church is also the head of the British state and the Commonwealth. Having pointed that out it's one of the charming wonders of being British:) Ironically the "protestant work ethic" of hardwork and frugality, an essential ingredient in the pursuit of capitalism is now redefining the sabbath!
  11. First of all our country wasn't invaded Second, we had one of the largest navies in the world, an air force and an Army in which we ultimately retaliated with. Thirdly we had the resources of empire!
  12. There's plenty of Christian countries throughout the world that operate 7 days a week. I fail to see how how a six day week defines Christianity in a society. Technically the 7th day rest scenario finds it's origin in the old testament rather than the new testament and it's the new testament that's the focus for Christians. Having said that I like my weekends as much as the next guy:)
