Quote of the Day:
I’m not doubting. I don’t doubt God. I have firm faith absolutely in God. It’s religion I’m doubting.


  1. Jesus Christ!
    Ain’t no one can twist the truth like the Catholics.Irish Catholics are the maddest of the mad.I know.I was raised by Irish Catholic nuns.
    Sorry to all you Irish Catholics out there but it’s the truth.
    Christianity held Ireland back from any civilising influences for centuries.
    When I think what the church did to all those young women from poor families who were forced to enter convents,I feel sick.
    Bono has guts to say that.I hope he keeps it up.
    When that other girl, don’t know her name, tore up the pic of the pope they were going hang draw and quarter her.Talk about freedom of thought.
    There ain’t none, and I know that for a fact.


      1. yes lostmort
        That’s her.I thought she was very brave taking on the Catholic Church but I think they nearly did her in and she recanted, or whatever.
        They talk about Islam and Salman Rushdie, but when Christians do dastardly things to people you are not supposed to notice.
