Re: Leuchars becoming Army Barracks?

...the British public have a long and shameful history of considering those who serve them as badly mannered thugs. Following in the grand tradition of the Duke of Wellington, who said in a letter to the Secretary of State for War on 2 July 1813 that "we have in the service the scum of the ear...

That's what the rule is saying - if the shorter word won't do, use the longer word. If the shorter word will do, don't use the longer word.

Isn't the gist simply "don't be pretentious"?

Re: Gay Damascus?

I skim-read the article, but what I'm more interested in is why everything you post on here seems to be about homosexuality.

Re: Slutwalk

I've never understood the idea that unregistered users aren't worthy of a hearing. Surely what's important to the debate is the point being made, not who's making it?

What does "fwat" actually mean? Is it an abbreviation, or something onomatopœic?

Re: Slutwalk

For some people, they're also reclaiming the word slut (trying to remove the stigmatisation of the word) What I thought was quite an interesting article by our former Rectorial candidate on the origins of the word: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/health/women_shealth/8510743/These-slut-walk-women-are-si...

I'd hardly say original sin was chosen by the individual, either.

Re: Equality Laws

...orthodox views on the sinfulness of homosexual [N.B.] acts As jollytiddlywink points out, the view held by the Johnses seems to be that to be homosexual is sinful, not merely to engage in homosexual acts. I always understood from the Sermon on the Mount that as, a general rule, sinfulness is in ...

Re: Monarchy aye or nay?

EDIT: Here's one. If Charles had been born with some form of severe mental disability/retardation should he still automatically become the head of state for the UK? Where do you draw the line?? You don't draw the line and yes, if he had been born with some form of severe mental disability he should...

Re: For god's sake - offensive?

The Committee of Advertising Practice has decided that the phrase for god's sake is too offensive to appear on advertising bill boards. This is the same group of people that decided "'the fool hath said in his heart, there is no God" was just fine and dandy. Meh. That does seem rather inc...

Re: Rights of Suffrage to Prisoners?

I've said (in previous posts in this thread) that a vote has very little practical value. I don't see it as a means of punishing a potential criminal - that, in committing a crime, they face the loss of a vote. In the grand scheme, I don't much care if they can or can't vote. The difference (in any...

Re: The slow, whiny death of British Christianity

Or, moving to the extremes of religion, you have the less-than-marvelous imagery of children marching with their parents wearing T-shirts emblazened with "God Hates Fags" across them. Really? That child has contemplated the rights and wrongs and, independently, arrived at the same extreme...

Re: The slow, whiny death of British Christianity

It really depends on the extent to which the corruption goes, whether the upper eschelons 'presided' over institutionalised paedophilia. So you the onus is on you to demonstrate to me that the Pope at any point during his career acted in such manner. Given how badly Church PR is run and the poor or...
