What I am about to say may offend my religious readers and I know a high percentage of you are due to the spirituality of my youth(no I never said misspent youth!!!!) but I really believe that the issue of the attitude of the church to homosexuality has to be addressed.

Tony Blair has questioned the Pope's attitude towards homosexuality, arguing that religious leaders must start "rethinking" the issue.

Some older Catholics had "entrenched attitudes", while most congregations were more "liberal-minded", he added.

Mr Blair, who converted to Catholicism after resigning as UK prime minister in 2007, told the gay magazine Attitude that views had to keep "evolving".

But he added that Pope Benedict XVI also stood for "many fantastic things".

I really do believe that a persons sexuality has nothing to do with anyone else and also believe that judging somebody because they are homosexual is especially wrong.

`Judge not, that ye be not judged`
Matthew 7:1
If Christians believe in the Bible then they should adhere to what is being said here and leave other people alone.It is not our business.
If there is a God and he wants to judge somebody then that is his/her business not ours.
Sadly I do not believe in God but I want to clarify here that I wish with all my heart he/she were true but this doesn`t mean that makes me a bad person and I live a bad life.
The life that I lead,trying to be a good, happy person, is not lived that way because I want to please God but because that is just the way I want to live my life.
Let`s put my slip into talking about religion down to Easter!

Considering that it is the Easter School Holidays the weather yesterday was not too bad with the rain holding off until night time.
I managed to catch the escapologist bunny and he is safely back in his cage which is good when you consider the rain last night.
If the rain holds off today then I shall finish cleaning the front garden which means cleaning out the bunny and the piggy cages.....nice!

I have managed to buy quite a few `Arty,Crafty`things which will please Beauty.Today Beauty and I must definitely make something from the `Doodle Drawer`.

I also have Fiona on a promise to paint my front will be interesting to see what transpires there!

Homossexuality has been around as long as prostitution - if not longer - and it seems to me that Jesus didn't hold their profession against the prostitutes he encountered. I doubt he'd be too bothered by homosexuality either. I suspect he'd just be glad there was a little more love in the world.

Hope the weather is good for you for the rest of the easter hols. Fingers crossed for your front porch!! :)


I agree Steve.


Hi Casdok.
The weather here is a bit hit and miss but I have managed to dry some washing outside and clean the garden and take Beauty out during the dry spells so it is not all bad.
A bit slap dash on the painting but it is done.




An Irish Blessing

(A Blessing from St. Patrick)
May the road rise to meet you,

May the wind be always at your back,

May the sun shine warm upon your face,

May the rains fall soft upon your fields,

And, until we meet again,

May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.
