Love it! I've read it before, but is worth reading through again.

Intolerance and bigotry deserve to be recognised for the lunacy it is. This is a clever way of showing it to be just that.

 Thanks Glad ,

        I really enjoyed that -   I feel much better now, and not half so guilty ,  ha  haa !  but I don't think I'll push my luck.  And what of Nasty Noel, does this let him off the hook ?  I don't think so.  So how many have been     " put - out of fellowship " un-necessarily  because of his rules and whims ? 

           Pigs.  You mention pigs. Are we allowed to throw them through the GRC Pty . Ltd. windows or do they only do that in Moe ? wow ! that's a bit too sick, but after what I just read  ?

       Isn't    Law   and  Religion   a facinating subject  and that's the whole key here. The Law doesn't differentiate as to what one believes in. We are all equal in the eyes of the  Law , Where-as Nasty Noel   !!! Well , there's a whole different kettle of fish, bigotry, racism, prejuduce etc etc , all the way down to partiality.

              We are all equal , only some of us are more equal than others .     Animal Farm .

Brett and David  what do you believe in relation to this. You are all keen to give us your thoughts on other issues. What is your take on homosexuality?

Hiya Glad..

That was hilarious!

The responding author has 'tongue-in-cheek'  pointed out  that that was OLD testament laws! Loved it! Unlike dog.. I've not read that one before. Thanks for the giggle!
