Sunday soapbox

Sunday’s soapbox is yours to use as you will – within the bounds of decency and absence of defamation. You’re welcome to look back or forward, discuss issues of the moment, to pontificate, ponder or point us to something of interest, to educate, elucidate or entertain, amuse, bemuse or simply muse, but not abuse.

    ie. Don’t write anything that needs to be written, especially don’t upset the blue rinse Nanny brigade asleep at the wheel.

    Paul I have been commenting here for nearly a decade

    In that time the number of genuine (as opposed to spam) posts that have been deleted could be counted on the fingers on one hand

    And one person has been banned after multiple warnings about posting material subject to court ordered suppression

    I believe that is an accurate summation

    Today on the Orthodox Calendar is called the Sunday of the Publican and the Pharisee – there is a lesson here

    Luke 18:10-14 King James Version (KJV)

    10 Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican.

    11 The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican.

    12 I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess.

    13 And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner.

    14 I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.

    O Love, you,
    you, O Love
    are sacred.

    From the beginning you are persecuted
    Your blood is poured out.

    O Love, you,
    you, O Love
    are sacred.
