Blasphemy I say.......blasphemy. Next thing you’ll be telling us is that Santa isn’t real.

 

Go and get a stiff drink and brace yourself my friend.

A couple of hundred years ago and I'd have been burned at the stake for saying the stuff I put in that post.

So they had the right idea about some things in the olden days?

(I don't recall those days, personally.)

There’s some on here that would have you burn at the stake just for disagreeing with posts they don’t like or agree with

I agree absolutely.
Until live gigs start back up again, how else are people going to get a good laugh.
I mean, talking burning bushes, "virgin" pregnancies (try that excuse nowadays), water into wine and walking on water conjuring tricks and entire seas parting for miles on end, you just can't beat organised religion for a solid belly laugh.
You forgot the talking donkey.

You've obviously seen my experience with the absolute nuggets on the Pie and Bovril forum. :D

If you haven't, here's a wee flavour.

I once posted that it was great that the government were making it easier for disabled people to work if they wanted to. Since then I have been accused of hating dsabled people and wanting them worked to death. :blink:

I then posted that I couldn't understand how anyone on benefits could find themselves in foodbanks and asked what they could be prioritising over food. Since then I have been accused of hating the poor, loving the rich and wanting the poor to die. :blink:

There are endless other examples but that'll do for now.

It's rare to be confronted with those levels of stupidity. I mean, you hear about it, but you rarely see it in action. Many of them are teachers by profession too. Sheesh. :D

I haven’t been on the P&B for a while now, but I get what you’re saying. A couple of years ago on here I was debating with a chap..... a police officer no less that called me every name under the sun because he thought I was a racist (made me chuckle considering my wife is Hindu and Father in Law is Muslim) The modern day teaching profession, law enforcement for example used to be respected individuals, but when it comes to actual life skills and experience, they’re a far cry from what they used to be....... IMO.

It was probably because you are Russian. Everyone knows that all Russians are racists. 🤔

I don't think the teaching profession has ever been respected. They've moved from routinely beating the shite out of defenceless children (oh that brings back memories) to teaching chldren how to pass tests. And along the way, they've made it almost impossible to sack a bad teacher.

As for policing, we all know about what's been going on there over the last 40 years with corruption, racism, law breaking and routinely forging evidence to send innocent people to prison for many years.

Neither profession can be trusted on any level. It's where far too many people who are no use for any other job end up. The worst part of it is the natural instinct of both professions to "look after their own" rather than the communities they are supposed to serve.

What a stupid, arrogant man you are.

Most teachers take treat their jobs as a vocation. They have the best interest of their charges at heart. I know many who go above and beyond, especially in these difficult times, to ensure their pupils get as close to a normal education as they can.

You are so up yourself you think, if anyone doesn't agree with your blinkered, selfish outlook on life, they are the stupid ones.

JEEZ.
