.... say what?
I'm at work today - and in an idle moment - decided to go through my blog to decide if I suspend the comments for a while - due to the amount of annoying spam I get, and stumbled across this little missive from 'anonymous'. It came after I'd questioned the number of Catholic mass services, including Westminster Cathedral - for the nurse who died last week - when, as I remember it - suicide is a mortal sin and she is condemned to hell - by her fellow catholics. I say fellow catholics, because - despite being from 'India' - her name is Saldanha - which is a Portuguese name - as anyone who went to school should know - there have been quite a few famous Saldanahs over the centuries - and generally - being from a Catholic country... they are Catholic. There was, of course - a huge influence held by Portugal over India for many years, Southern India in particular - so - you know... 'do the fucking math' as the young folks say.
I doubt that you are a regular reader of this blog, or you would have picked up on some of my personal political leanings - or perhaps you are just trying to wind me up - I don't care, I really don't.
So - you can imagine that I was just a tad confused by your comment 'whatever Indian's are'. Well - it's a the 7th largest democratic country in the world, with 1.2 billion inhabitants, all different, with a rich and vibrant culture spanning at least 4,500 years and:
" - India is notable for its religious diversity, with Hinduism, Sikhism, Islam, Christianity, and Jainism among the nation's major religions. The predominant religion, Hinduism, has been shaped by various historical schools of thought, including those of the Upanishads, the Yoga Sutras, the Bhaktimovement, and by Buddhist philosophy."
I suspect that anonymous postings on strange blogs are the only place left for people like you to express your stupidity without getting punched or laughed at. I can't be bothered with your stupid comment about nurses - it does not warrant a response. Please - do me a favour, go away - and don't come back, your sort aren't wanted here. (hmm... where have I heard that before??? )
