Breaking Up Is So Hard To Do

The split was acrimonious. I wanted some space. I needed space. I got it.

However as time went by I realised that our differences were few, and we really couldn't part just like that. We'd been together for over 6 months, and although there was the occasional cross word, generally we agreed on things.

So the long and short of it is that after a bit of counselling, me and my blog are together again, and stronger than ever.

Letter to the Herald

In this perspectives piece, Jane Norton (whom has frequented my blog and caused a stir previously) tells of Noah being raped by his sons in the Old Testament.

Here is my letter:-

I would have thought that as an Auckland lawyer, Jane Norton would ensure that she gets her facts straight, however, not so. In her perspectives piece on censorship, she tells us of the Old Testament tale of Noah being raped by his sons. One wonders if this is the "Norton" translation of the Old Testament, because it sure isn't in any of the translations I have. It is great to have free speech and dialogue, but it is important that we also get the facts right.

Has been running like a goat, but has had a bit of a tune up and is purring. Look out for it in a town near you.

MRI Scan

Mum's MRI scan results were given to us today. They had thought the cancer had moved into the spine, but fortunately they were wrong. Praise God.

The End

And Scott felt no more need to blog anymore, and he lived happily in peace.

The End.

Dad Attacks the Humanists

‘Religious’ Schools

I am amazed that Paul Litterick, Secretary NZ Association of Rationalists and Humanists, fails to see that public state schools are also ‘religious’ in nature. So called secular schools espouse the humanist belief that man (individually or collectively), not God, determines values, and that these values are based upon prevailing circumstances. Humanists enthusiastically, dare I say even ‘religiously’, seek to remake the world in man’s image.

Nobody thinks without making assumptions. Those assumptions are a person’s religion. It makes no difference whether God or man says those assumptions are true, as long as people accept them without question. No religious leader ever spoke more dogmatically than humanists speak. Yet in the name of church – state separation humanists have largely censored from textbooks all religious doctrines but their own. Not all religions are institutionalized in churches. Not all sectarians believe in the supernatural. Not all catechisms are theistic.

The real problem is not one of ‘religion’ but choice. All taxpayers contribute to the funding of education and should therefore be entitled to send their children to a ‘religious’ school that supports their beliefs.

Shane Kennedy (in reply to a member of the rationalists and humanists association who said that only state schools are free of dogma and should be supported with government funding.)

Those who live by the sword... get shot by those who don't

I got this one from Hannah Leslie.

Dan and Michelle's for dinner

I did not as the heading suggests eat Dan and Michelle's house. However I did attend a dinner at Dan and Michelle's house. And a very good cook is Michelle. She made hamburgers, and potato wedges. Very yumy. Me and Dan got to a lot of interesting talking. The results of which will probably be published on one or both of our blogs in the near future. Watch out!

Dan Jono (I'm not linking him because he doesn't blog anymore) Dwaine, James, Mark, Matthew, Boss, George Cain and myself played touch at hillpark today. I felt faint after about two minutes on because the sun. But in the end it turned out to be a cracker game. Try of the day had to be Dan's run away (after sneakily running through the defence) try. The game for me and James was topped of by a sour chill (recommend these for a hot day) (thanks Tip Top I'll have a raise), and cold coke. Mmmm. And that my friends is what Waitangi day should be about.
