I'm pretty sure you lost track of the point here.

Your emotional religiosity is what I found out of place, that it belonged elsewhere.
I asked why this Triduum made you emotional; you did not answer that.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.

And some people can't help but to be a dick.

Color me surprised. Dodgy

Ah my apologies there for losing track of the point that you were making there. And yes, it probably did, though wasn't thinking of it really except as part of the initial reply about those women though and to an extent being able to relate to them. As for why it makes me emotional; good question, and one I don't fully understand myself.

Probably because it's the most crucial point in the Christian calendar, religion wise. Or I suppose, one could posit, because I'm emotionally manipulated into it by the high drama as it were, of the three days as they're celebrated with more pomp and circumstance in my church, as compared to the one I grew up in. Maundy Thursday, with the Last Supper and institution of Communion, being celebrated. Good Friday, the day held to be the date of the crucifixion. Saturday is the Easter Vigil which will be all smells, bells, and a combined 14+ readings from the Bible and sung Responsorial Psalms.

Need to think of a witty signature.

It was surprisingly tasty Yes

And QI is the best thing ever. Even after Stephen Fry left. You actually learn a lot (of useless stuff. My favourite kind Rolleyes ) and also get heaps of moments like this Big Grin














Will def. download some episodes as soon as possible as I'm getting pisseder by the hour (and I don't mean the funny kind of pissed as in drunk, either) Dodgy


And yeah, to borrow a phrase from the very very great Octavia Butler (gone way too soon Sadcryface ): "Humans persecute their different ones, yet they need them to give themselves definition and status."

We don't necessarily have to persecute them but apparently a lot of us still need "the other" to mock and denigrate in order to feel better about ourselves Undecided
