If you do nothing else today - get yourself a coffee, settle down, go to this site, click the image and slowly go through the images and text, don't skip a word - you won’t regret it.
..... and then read the article about the Finn dressed in Ku Klux Klax garb outside a refugee centre in Lahti, Finland. Welcome to northern europe! http://www.aftonbladet.se/nyheter/article21491234.ab
It’s probably the latitude!
As ever the problem is compounded by the fact that we of the civilised world are failing by not educating the parents of these children and young people.
If the adults, by that I mean the refugee's we see running around the globe trying to escape, would only use contraceptives, there would be a lot less children suffering.
Surely the better option is to supply condoms giving them away for free!
Dual reaction. Less children and less sexual disease.
Thank you for those well-chosen words of wisdom! What a very civilised and Christian way of looking at the problem – ‘free condoms’.
Durex can protect against many things but I am not sure about bombs, bullets and chemical weapons!
I guess you won’t be donating to UNHCR then?
Well said, Pittaway. (NOT). I must remember to increase my shares in 'Durex'! Why not go for mass sterilisation? Oh no, that would affect my shares in Durex. Forget that.
Goodness me how haughty can you get? I thought imperial colonialism ended a long time ago!
FFS mr Pittaway!
Lima, you state 'christian' - is it a requirement that people who use this site are Christians or can people of other religions or even those of no religion use this site?
No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main. If a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friend's or of thine own were: any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind, and therefore never send to know for whom the bells tolls; it tolls for thee.
@PaulT I'm an atheist and I think you know exactly what Lima was saying as we are, after all, classified as 'Christian' countries in western and northern europe, so I think you're being rather facetious.
Clearly, in this multi-cultural society, there are many groups that use this site, and long may it be so. I myself was brought up as a Welsh Methodist and married a Catholic but now lean towards Glenmorangie and the Sisters of Mercy! And you Paul, who or what do you turn to for divine inspiration?
Unfortunately no-one thought to advise the parents of Blair, Bush(snr and jnr), Cameron, Hollande, Sarkozy, Obama, Clinton (Bill and Hillary), Kerry, McCain, Rothchild(s), Rockerfeller(s), et al, of the benefits to global peace which enlightened use of the products from the London Rubber Company could have created.
These people are giving so much - please read and help if you can.
