Godless society

Not to enter into any bible-bashing but...

A colleague told me yesterday that he had read in a paper that a young girl recently went into a jewellers to purchase a crucifix. When the shop assistant showed her a cross on its own she said,"Nah. I want one with the little man on it."

Don't know if there is any substance to this but in our "multicultural society" where our traditional religion seems to be sidelined in favour of others it wouldn't be a surprise.

The poor lass is obviously a victim of of piss poor, 'right on' education.

Prehaps her purchase will lead her to a higher path.

Just how old was that newspaper?

That joke was part of Jasper Carrots routine in the 80s FFS.

Thankyou! I told it to my missus yesterday and she couldn't believe that someone could be so thick.

Oh, I don't know. When I read the indignation on this and other forums about certain behaviours in the world, it appears certain traditional Christian values remain stubbornly persistent, even if folks deny that this is the fount from which they flow.

I get a great deal from going to church.

Usually the lead off the roof.

I'll always remember those words by the vicar to the verger. "Is that Fanny Green over there?" "No vicar - it's just the light from the stained glass windows."

They don't know much about anything. I was amazed one evening at the supermarket checkout to have a young girl ask me what one does to cook potatoes?
