Re: Happy Easter to all....

I have no words for this ... how tragic- not least for the peaceful Muslims of Glasgow and Scotland and the world.

Re: Happy Easter to all....

The Valencia authorities have banned a gay actor Ramón Fossati from participating in the Easter parade until 2019. His Jesus was way too flamboyant for them. He looks like a perfectly fine Jesus to me. Someone must have forgotten to tell the Valencia authorities the bit about Jesus loving everyone, flamboyant or not..

Re: Happy Easter to all....

Authorities say most of the dead and injured are women and children. On Easter Day - the bomb was believed to have been targeting Christian families.

How disgusting whatever religion these poor people were. Over 230 injured.
What a mad and sad world.

Re: Happy Easter to all....

Some people celebrate Easter only but some folks find it worthwhile to celebrate the Easter Rising. Let's not forget about important part of the history.

Easter Rising: Centenary parade takes place in Dublin

So lets see how many monuments around the world will be lit up with projections of the Pakistani flag... and how many people on facebook will overlay their profile photos to show their support. Oh, wait...

Turns out he was murdered by a fellow Muslim because he belonged to a different flavour of Islam!

Re: Happy Easter to all....

happy-easter-all-screen-shot-2017-04-16-07.30.36.png

and lets not forget the of chickens in the US that lay these eggs 95% of which are kept in the most disgusting battery conditions (a practice banned in all but most third world countries)

Re: Happy Easter to all....

We should take a moment to think of and pray for those people around the world who are unable to celebrate Easter in comfort or safety, in particular the Christians of Egypt who are still mourning the deaths of so many of their friends and relatives after the bomb attacks last Sunday.

Puts all our troubles very much in perspective.

Happy Easter to everyone!

Painted eggs from back home, each with a strong symbolism. May you all have a peaceful spring!
