Quote: Will the Argentinian Pope be guided by the Hand of God?
Does the right hand know what the left hand's doing? ....the ref didn't and I doubt the pope will either.
Quote: Maybe we could give the Falklands back
well the new pope is dead against us being in the Falklands but in saying that who really cares about it the majority of British did not even know the Falklands existed until the conflict, and as for same sex marriage I doubt he will will move with the times I do believe also he only turned to the church after after his marriage proposal was turned downed
I seem to remember that, at the time of the invasion, the Falklands were owned by Coalite and guess who had a large stockholding in this company?
Charringtonss merged with Coalite and the group bought the falkland islands trading company. this controlled the fishing and oil rights on the island. it didnt own the island, just the company. the population app 1800 off people were basically of uk origin.
who else was involved, im not aware anyone was other than Anglo group who eventually took over coalite in its entirery before going under a few years back.
Coalite? Their adverts were from a calmer, less frenetic, happier world -
Not 'We' please. I have no time for religion.

We, as in the world.......... the planet's entire population has a new pope!

I'm not especially religious and I'm not a catholic but I like the way this bloke's going about his job -
"He has surprised many of the clerics who work at the Vatican, eating in a communal dining room with other priests and clearly finding much traditional Vatican ceremonial tedious, our correspondent says.
Rather than moving into grand papal apartments, Pope Francis has remained in a Vatican guesthouse, where he has been inviting ordinary people to morning Mass."
I am not religious but I am starting to warm to the man.
I heard on the radio the other day that he called his usual newspaper vendor to cancel his order because he had a new address.
The world needs something to get us back to a sense of morals, and a purpose in life; everyone. What are our children going to do. I'm not religious, nor am I RC, but we seem to have slipped off the rails along the way.
I believe every generation thinks that way. I don't think we are any worse than those who went before. Doesn't mean we shouldn't try of course
Quote: I don't think we are any worse than those who went before.
Well, we're all born equal apparently, then it's what happens to us after that.
The way I see it is that communities and society are not anywhere near what they once were. We've gone from the immediate post war 'we're all in this together' spirit to the overt championing of the consumer as an individual. Television is a mischievous, manipulative medium doing God knows what to the minds of those that watch it, especially children. Consume and be happy! Yet folk patently aren't happy. They're starved of genuine love both in a receiving and giving sense.

I'm irresistably reminded of that line from that old song by The Who........... Substitute: "I was born with a plastic spoon in my mouth"
