It's obvious why dogs are not allowed in Church. Many, especially smaller, ones, bark and yap a lot in environments with new or exciting sounds and smells. That isn't really ideal in a church, and you can't exactly say: "dogs are fine as long as they are the quiet and well behaved type". You either allow or ban all dogs.
We do that with children... Go to a theater, and either kids are banned or you're asked to only bring well behaved children...

Same thing with dogs.

On a side note, also aware this isn't the EU, but in many countries you cannot legally deny entry to a guide or assistance dog...

No - that's next week. I've booked the whole place for a party with a few friends. We've gone for a dozen girls for each guy - do you think that is enough?

Are you still coming?

Technically I'm on the beach.

I'm trying to work out how to caption my pictures "Indian Ocean. Present day" from my phone as homage to Tom Cruise's greatest work.

He said Tom Cruises greatest work. I am pretty sure "Cocktail" was on Jamaika though...

You're thinking of his epic betrayal of Roy Miller in Knight and Day. I am still shocked he didn't win an Oscar for that role.

Bring them along - more the merrier. I don't think we'll need to get more supplies in for another 2 dozen.

No. Too close to the equator for my better half's fair skin.

Ps I'm scar(r)ed by all of your knowledge of Tom Cruise films that aren't Top Gun

According to Eyebeebe - I'll have to check IMDB - maybe he was the barman or something.

And there is that thing about "all God's creatures"?
All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful:
The Lord God made them all.


He gave us eyes to see them,
And lips that we might tell
How great is God Almighty,
Who has made all things well.

Re: Who should be allowed in church?

If there's some particular reason you need to have the dogs with you, you could probably talk with the church and see if you can work something out. Otherwise, it's up to the church, and there seem to be good reasons not to allow them in.
