Gunfight at the OK Corral

Well not quite. More of a dust up at the Basilica of the Nativity in Bethlehem as up to 100 Armenian and Greek Orthodox joined pitched battle wielding brooms and other weapons.

Comical yet degrading.


Christmas cheer

To those of you who are whingeing about how invasive Christmas is, and how you’re expected to ‘enjoy’ the holiday with your non-existent or fractious families and how this false joy is foisted upon you, how it’s just a big commercial scam, I have a message for you.


Go take it out on your MP or nearest banker and leave us God-botherers to get on with celebrating something special to our hearts.


The Subversive Christmas Tree

 Just spotted that the Christmas Tree in the staff canteen where I work has an angel on top. The single, sole reminder of that momentous event two millenia ago.

I wonder how long it will be before this smack-in-the-face for the militant atheists is detected by one of their acolytes. I mean, how dare anyone display such overtly Christian religious symbols at this, or any time of year!

I’m glad I’m not a first aider anymore as blood pressure and respiratory problems in humourless bigots were never my cup of tea.
