In my system of morality, making light of somebody who tells blatant lies about another so as to defame them makes you almost as bad as that person, irrespective of whether this contravenes commandment nine of the ten commandments Christians believe that God imposed on them or not.

Where did I do that? :?

From my understanding of English, the pronoun "we" subsumes "I" within its meaning, so somebody who says that "We are Christian" can be construed to also be saying "I am Christian." True or false?


False! Not all Cypriots are Christian.

Maybe it's time to stop listening so much to those creative 'voices'.


I would express an opinion that Garavnoss is the person formerly known as Schnauzer....and GIG I fully agree with you.

:lol: You're so slow, dog.

But you said... “devout Christian”! :lol:

Two different things...

We were baptized and included into the Orthodox Christian fold early on but we are far from following God's every word... :lol:

Only a small minority is not Christian.

Garavnoss appears to be too fixated on Miltiades. He is making everything too personal, and deliberately trolling Miltiades everywhere.

You are right Paphitis, this "thing", does indeed have a " perverted" fixation, sexual perhaps, with yours truly. I always had this effect on the opposite sex but it appears that some perverts are also likely effected. :lol:

Being one that would not consider a dissociation from events or issues that I have never been associated with I shall refrain from entering any discussion that would appear that I, was eagerly trying to distance my self from events that do not have or never formed a part of my life.

On this forum I mentioned numerous times that in 1958, on my 12th year birthday, a year or less before the end of the struggle I took the oath of ANE, the youth movement of EOKA and was the struggle to continue I would have joined the struggle in a more robust fashion as a full member of EOKA.

I left Cyprus in October 1961, a year and a bit since Indepence in August 1960. I was 15 then, I feel that for the benefit of .....GR I may recall my arrival at Victoria station :lol:

I reckon parents should wait for children to grow a bit in order to make their own decisions about partaking in this strange ritual.

I wonder how many Cypriots would be baptized then.

"They profess to know God, but they deny him by their works. They are detestable, disobedient, unfit for any good work."



American society is riddled with "Devout Congregations" embracing an infinite number of varying interpretations of "The Bible".

Some American "Ministers" even invent new religions and are well subscribed, ALL convinced that they serve "The Almighty.

The "Passage" you proffer is brilliantly adequate in summarizing the "Yanks" and the "Good Works" they are UNFIT for.

The "Holy Bible" is constantly under fire and subject to changes to suit those in power, periodic gatherings of the "Holy" leaders are forever a feature of the "Learned " as they try to determine/re-arrange meanings of the written word in order to suit themselves.

NOT SO with the "Noble Qur'an" which is quite clear in it's statement "As it is written, so let it be done" and regardless of ALL the controversial arguments that such statement attracts, not ONE word [or even letter thereof] can ever be changed.

I personally think that "The Almighty" would prefer such a situation, one knows where one stands don't you agree ?.

Look upon the "Yanks" in the "Light" of what is written and you may also see the "Light".......but I have my doubts. 8)

I wouldn't say that at all.

The numbers are in the thousands.
