    Yeah. God forbid you make mention of anything religious. Muslim excluded of course.
    Clearly thus apparant cross up being due muslimism not being a real religion like Scientology.

    It is virtually required by law.
    Halloween is Fall Festival.
    Easter isn't mentioned.
    And better not have a cross anywhere in sight.
    If we had catacombs Christians would be meeting in them.
    And people are ready to scrap tax free status for charities just to stick it to churches.

    Sucs really. Why do the politically correct brigade get the heeby jeebies over such mundane festivals as Easter or Christmas - is it such a breach of ethical or cultural etiquette??
    Ramadan it seems is perfectly aceptable no one dares say it should be remaned to Goat Slaying Festival or Dietary Impairment Month?

    Anyway back to reality.... what's everyone doing for the celebration of the Spring Fertility Festival?

    I thought I'd sleep.
    Have to play nice with muslims or they kill you. It's their dogma.

    :) yeah... trouble is its not a problem for the muslim community... at least not in the UK anyway, they cannot even understand why the PC brigade wants to airbrush out the names of these festivities! It seems to be just a hang-up with all those liberal assholes that have this warped ideal of what they think is wrong rather than what is actually offensive or groups being discriminated against.

    The average Mohamad I'm sure doesn't care. Unfortunately the jihadis look for any excuse. And the PC crowd are just silly.

    THe problem is that in Australia and Britain church attendance is very low from 10 to 15 % a month. It is much higher in the USA. But in all countries religion is airbrushed. The meaning of hot cross buns, and Easter eggs is distorted. That why I contributed some photos of our church service. While my denomination miht celebrated differently to you we know what Palm Sunday represents.

    Sotsman, the situation might be a little better if you take account of Catholic schools which are not called Sunday Schools. In Australia over 20 % of children go to Church run schools. This is partly because they are subsidise by the Federal Government and claim to offer a better education..

    yeah we have a lot of faith schools too - I guess that's what they're called? there's some RC or CofE schools but its really more of a traditional thing - they're all roled into the local authority education system now and any vestigial remnant of "faith" has been lost.... well sort of lost. I suppose its people like me that should shoulder the blame really! I'm not a religious person so its' kinda lost on me, but saying that I like roaming round the old churches as they're a great storehouse of local history, however, they are falling into disrepair because nobody goes to actually worship there - I love taking pictures of them and always leave a couple of quid in the collection boxes at the door but unfortunately have no reason to go to the services there as... I don't know its a bit hypocritical I guess.

    Here's a couple of shots of our local church..
