Semantic point on a common misunderstanding:   When Jesus said, as rendered in the AV translation of Luke 18, "Suffer little children to come unto me and forbid them not", the word was used in the old sense of "suffer", meaning "allow"*; nothing to do with "suffering" in the sense of undergoing pain or trouble or other disagreeable experience. All Jesus meant was that people shouldn't try to stop children from approaching him and listening to what he had to tell them; it does not mean that they should be made to undergo anything unpleasant.

A much misunderstood passage which I think it worth elucidating.

≈M≈

*A usage that survived in common use till early C19: cf the poor but dignified Miss Bates in Jane Austen's Emma, when she thinks the apothecary Mr Perry might offer to treat her niece without charge, "But this cannot be suffered, you know. Mr Perry has a family to maintain and is not to be giving away his time."

The West, or anybody who gave support to Assad, was to blame - anybody.
Britait did what they did - sold armoured cars, ammunition and riot control equipment to a murderous dictator who they knew to have a record of suppression, torture and murder - at a time when Assad's snipers were using mothers carrying children in arms as target practice, you sneered at the sales as "a few sniper rifles" - very Christian and compassionate, I'm sure!!
When he was discovered to have been sold chemicals capable of manufacturing the weapons he was found using on the Syrian population, your response was "he said he was only using it for peaceful purposes" - Christian trust and understanding, I take it?
Nobody supported the sale of weapons and equipment to murderous regime by anybody - you supported its sale by Britain.
The failure of the UN and later, of the Western Powers, to intervene in the war crimes and atrocities committed by Assad on his people, gave impetus for Isis to take advantage to step in and become the threat is now is - the West fully shares the blame for that rise to power.
Britain allows and encourages the sale weapons to mass murderers, terrorist states and feudal dictators, knowing full well their reputations - that is immoral.
I deplore all sales of weapons to anybody, by anybody - it is an abomination.
When it is done on my behalf it is my duty, as a British citizen, to make my disapproval known - not to defend it on the basis that others do it, as you do.
Wonder what happened to the "Thou Shalt Not Kill" part of the Christian creed - unprofitable an inconvenient to some Christians, it would appear, along with "suffer the little children"
A Christian - you must be joking!!!

Yes I did and it was.
Where were you?
Trying to find ways to blame the West when the slaughter was being done using Russian, Chinese and Iranian weapons.
We do not make ammunition for those things.

I reopened the thread several times but no-one was interested in massacres for which Israel could not be blamed.
One other person started one other thread with the same result.

Once again you try to demonise me by misrepresenting posts from years ago instead of addressing the issues.

Keith - you have no interest in "discussing" anything that you can't use as a platform for your own prejudices.
You started the disgusting "Hom's Horror" thread telling us how terrible it was all those people being shot down - until you were informed that the bullets used by the snipers may have come from Britain, as did some of the armoured cars and riot control equipment - then you flipped and the thread became a damage limitation exercise in order to defend Britain's good name
You even went as far as to suggest that it would be fine to sell Assad equipment if it was only for "riot control) - IE to suppress Syria's Arab Spring protesters, which was what they were then.
Yo took a similar stance when Assad started using chemicals on his people - bad, until it was found that Britain sold him chemicals which could have been used in their manufacture - another damage control exercise.
As far as you seem to be concerned, we should discuss these things on your 'crocodile tears' level and make sure the world knows it is the Muslims at it again.
Here, we have the same situation - lament the poor Christians being slaughtered but please don't mention the slaughtering by Christians and other religious bodies - up on your chair, skirts hoisted up and loud shrieks of "thread drift".
Unless we are able to discuss these subjects in context and point the finger, these discussions become nothing more than pointless handkerchief wringing exercises.
Feel free so say what you wish on these topics, but I do with you would stop trying to censor and manipulate what others have to say - you must have been arned about this at least a dozen times.
Something to get your teeth into - the greatest threat of religious persecution over the last century in Western Europe has come from Christian Churches persecuting Christians, including children in their care, "fallen" girls, pregnant women and homosexuals.
Don't suppose you'd care to comment on that - other than to deny it!

I'll bear that in mind, Co messiah emeritus with gnomish attributes....

Talking of low... Interesting set of articles recently in many periodicals pointing out that the high number of Christian slaughter needs analysing in the light of two aspects:

Many of those slaughtered are labelled as Christians. You cannot tally the Muslim factor of the oppressors on the same level as the victims being Christians. After all, if they attacked our village (3,400 people) the press would call us Christians yet 30 seem to be practicing and another seven or so turn up at Easter.

The other aspect is that it is being associated with the West that is the important bit. Terrorists on a jihad mission seem to think that normal people care about religion in the same way they do,whereas most people couldn't give a rats arse over here, so oppression and murdering easy targets in Syria, Nigeria etc, they think we would be upset as "brothers" are slaughtered in the same way a few Muslim kids here think along those lines.

Nobody told them it is sadly about the third news story in on a good day, and happening to foreigners. If they think they will provoke a backlash on the basis of us and them, they have been listening to too many irresponsible church leaders doing their dirty work for them by calling innocent bystanders in the wrong place at the wrong time, martyrs.

Religion is an issue, and the response of church leaders, identifying with one side on the supposition the West in general is into "us and them" is fucking disgraceful.

Yeah, let's talk about religious persecution Keith. You'd have normal people classed as on one side of an irrelevant problem, whereas the awful stance of Welby and other apologists for terror just fan the flames, and they know it.

Martyrs... No. Dead people. Live with it. They can't so do it for them from the comfort of your judgemental armchair.

What we eanted to do is to put in i context of all religions persecution and have consistently pointed out that it is not exclusive to Muslim extremists - this doesn't suit your hate-agenda and you have persistently attempted to confine it to Christians being the victims.
You have never been prepared to discuss it as religious persecution and you never will as you are incapable of accepting that your own claimed religion is historically the greatest persecutor the world has ever experienced
You one took a thread entitled 'Muslim Persecution' and virually single-handedly made it an attack on Muslims (link you to it if you wish).
All religions persecute, given the opportunity - it is their very nature
Accept it or you are a bigot - which we are all aware of anyway.

" course all persecution is bad."
Then admit that it is a relgious one and not one of any specific religion - as a Christian (supposedly) you should have the courage to take on the sins committed by your Church - that should be the responsibility of all who decalre themselves Christian.
Instead, you have defended and denied the atrocities committed by both your own Church and those committed in the name of Judiaism.
Yoursis not a religious stance, it is a political one
"Ancient Christian communities" have been responsible for some of the worst crimes in history - your own Church (if you are, as you claim, Church of England, came into being so a debauched pox-riddled English King could get his leg over - which led to thousands upon thousands of non-conformists suffering torture and horrific death - is that a heritage you feel is worth protecting?
People whi are massacred and persecuted are not Christians or Catholics or Pertestants or Jews or Muslims.... - THEY ARE PEOPLE, and defending and lamenting one group while excusing, and eve siding with the persecution and massacre of others is an evil act
How dare you demand sympathy for your particular religious sect after the efforts you have made in supporting the persecution of others by a terrorist state?
It is little wonder that religion is in the sharp decline that it is if you are representative of what it has to offer.
The BBC reports the news - you use that news as a platform for your bigotry and hatred - your comparison is pathertic.

".Jim has deserted and Team Musket have walked out with their hands up."
Nope - I have been unable to open this thread since Wednesday - extremely frustrating.
Nice to see you have added to the "I won" mob, though
'the "kill Christians" statement makes no difference whatever, if anything, it underlines the point that all religious killings are evil, whoever they are carried out by.
You have chosen either to ignore or deny any extremism on the part of Christians and have denied that it takes place   
You people are the only ones ever to have supported sectarian terrorism in any shape or form - Keith vehemently, when it comes to that carried out by te Israeli regime in the name of the Jewish people (massacres of refugees, bombardment of hospitals, use of chemical and fragment weapons, starving an entire population onto submission - all ok by him).
He and you refuse to acknowledge any similar behaviour by your particular flavour-of-the-month (Bosnia, Northern Ireland - no comment).
All slaughter, sectarian or otherwise, is unacceptably ever - by Isis, Boko Harem, By Israeli's in the name of Judaism, Bosnian Christians killing 100,000 Muslims, Nigerian Christians killing and driving out returning Muslim refugees....... all are acts of evil, whether they are carried out by religious fanatics in the name of their religion or for military or economic advantage using religion as an excuse.
All of the main religious groups are capable of such acts and in the case of some of them, it is still happening (and this includes Christians   
I is just as evil and hypocritical to take sides, either by defending those acts or by excusing and ignoring them.
You people have chosen your side - it's them, not us, and you continue to refuse to acknowledge that it is all religious groups who step outside their religious remit who are the problem, not any one religion in particular.
God save us all from bigots and religious fanatics such as yourselves.

You probably think the same about me and, from various comments, you obviously do not understand what I am trying to put across. I doubt we will ever be friends but I am happy to call a truce.

You believe in god. I say I don't know. You believe in statistics. I trained for a while as a statistician and, again, will always doubt them. Your faith in these things is far greater than mine and I am sure it makes you content while I am more cynical and rely instead on self made happiness. Wouldn't life be boring if we were all the same.

I won't say good luck in your efforts because I don't believe you deserve it but I will say I wish you good health and peace.

Cheers

DtG

Dunno, Greg. He appears to have memory loss and severe confusion. Isn't that more of an old age thang?

Well, Steve,

Kieth appears, from the abundant evidence he's posted here, to be operating at about Piaget's Preoperational, Toddlerhood (18-24 months) through early childhood (age 7) Stage.

No point in trying to engage him at a more advanced level.

You appear to be eternally confused between a partial quote and a misquote. A partial quote is when you leave a bit out. A misquote is when you claim that the quotee said something he didn't. Which is what you did. Hope this helps.

No one has yet commented on the BBC making a programme about the subject of this thread entitled "Kill The Christians."

You said it was wrong for me to start this thread, and that it proves me to be an Islamophobe.

That same criticism must then apply to the BBC, yet no outcry here or in the real world about their bigotry and racism.

It shows you were all wrong to object to this discussion being started and reopened.

Right Jim?

I did not misquote Wheatcroft.
I did not need to as he was supporting my view of WW1 and not the old discredited beliefs you people still cling to.

I quoted the relevant passage verbatim, and a link was provided so it could be seen in its origina intended context.

What you people picked up on was that I did not always quote in full subsequently.
No deception there.

It is not as if I faked up quotes and attributed them to historians whose real views were diametrically opposite.
Raggy and Musket both did that, and none of you people objected at all.
You post endlessly about a partial quote after a full one is given, but ignore real deliberate lies intended to deceive the forum.

I was quite careful with the context as it happens, good ol' Billy Boy. What I left out, and what you put back in, doesn't make the slightest difference to my point, demonstrated in the quote, that you present childish, schoolyard justifications for your own name-calling whilst condemning others for theirs. You really do think you're right all the time, don't you? Incidentally, if you want to get all persnickety about the accuracy of quotes, how come you were so quiet when your mate Keith was misquoting Mr Wheatcroft all over the show? Remember...?

I never called anyone a confused pathetic old fool. confused old fool, but not pathetic.

If he were pathetic I would have not bothered because nobody is influenced by pathetic people.

But Michael does have moments of lucidity in some matters so it was important to point out he was a) old (you can allow for the older they get the less acceptable their rants) b) confused (his silly question had fuck all to do with the debate and c) fool (self explanatory.)

Talking of pathetic people. Akenhateon! What is this thing that Terribulus, Pte Acheson etc have won and why is Musket running off somewhere?

Don't bother. It will be irrational anyway.

(This Musket did run off today, to buy a new bouzouki. Another Musket is in India on behalf of the Scottish government and the third is in Canada getting the spring ski in. We fly out next week hopefully, although won't meet up. The three of us will be in Inveraray next month though. McMusket & his better half stage good parties.)

Hardly jumping in with anything considering it followed a few 'I blame it on' remarks. Not even got any idea who they were from now but the comment is hardly in support of anyone is it.

Yeah Terribulus. Let's all get a stiffy because a confused old fool has asked an irrelevant question!

It would appear that a post of mine has gone missing, which is strange as it only called Steve Shaw's attention to the fact that if he is going to quote me then quote the whole thing in context, as what was stated in the original post still stands why remove the other?

So here is the full quote again (It was aimed at Raggytash):

"Call Musktwat, GregF, el al "fascists" and "bigots" of course I do because they are "fascists" and "bigots". It would appear that in your mind it is perfectly alright for them to dish it out while you grin on like a hyena from the sidelines, but a completely different kettle of fish when they demonstrate that they cannot take their own medicine - talking of kettles and fish - You may not be a "fascist", or a "bigots". You are just a "kipper" - two-faced and just plain gutless."

And yes there does seem to be a Tag Team thing going on and Akenaton, myself and Keith A of Hertford have noted it. When the Musktwats, GregF have succeeded in making complete and utter fools of themselves then in jump Dave the Gnome; Raggytash and Good Ol' Steve Shaw.
