Re:

Marriage has been a civil institution long before Christianity. I see no reason why the word should be reserved soley for the use of religious unions. Let it remain (as it has been since classical Greece) a civil concept and let the churches find their own word.

Re:

To my mind, what the Tories really need is a vision. Ideally, they want someone equal and opposite to Blair - someone from a poor background who made good and who can sell that as something other people can and would do under a Tory government. They need to have an idealistic spin to their policies ...

Quoting flarewearer from 10:42, 23rd Apr 2005 I can't help but wonder about the logic of applying 2000 year old doctrine to a disease that has been around for less than 50 years...

Re:

I've been at two other universities and St. Andrews' ITS is definitely superior to both of them. Especially, as someone else mentioned, the fact that they will fix your personal computer for free. That's very very unusual for universities and people should be more appreciative.

Re:

I quite like the idea of making smacking illegal. It would make any physical punishment of a child illegal so that parents were no longer able to hide behind "it was just a smack" but, on the other hand, it's blatantly not going to be a law that's enforced all of the time for everyone. It'll end up ...

On the consent issue, I have to say that I disagree with David that it isn't rape if consent was given and then withdrawn. I do think that it's sensible and good policy for women in general to take great care about putting themselves in vulnerable situations, but it's still rape if a woman changes h...
