    well at the original event (it didn't occur mind you) they would not known have known that JC was going to rise from the dead and that Easter would occur (actually wasn't easter something about rabbits being naughty?), it should be called something like Tomb Saturday.

    But compared to the miners in South America being entombed for about 2 months already Jesus' feat was nothing. We have had earthquake victims buried for longer than 3 days and survived.

    And BTW I make a point of having a big juicy steak to make up for all ruddy Fridays I kept meatless due to the RCC. But Friday did not stop their priests being naughty on that day.

    does JC get double time for being strung up on public holidays? And triple time for not getting a break in 24 hours?

    that is because they are right wing mean capitalists, instead being of a bit more socialistic like genuine Aussies are, and more humane by the way, a fair go so to speak and not too much had yakka, get a deceny break occasionally

    It’s astonishing that the BCA should only now — years too later, when Gillard cannot retreat — point out the bleeding obvious about this tax. First. that it’s suicidal for Australia to lead a reluctant world in slashing our emissions and giving up the competitive advantage of cheap coal-fired electricity. Second, that it’s is madness to do something so expensive that will do zero to cut the world’s temperature.
    well the same could be said Jesus' crufixion on the cross, was all in vain and people are still sinning and going to Hell.

    So hear this Jesus, Jono thinks that you are a wanker for getting crucified

    this Jesus was a confused fella, he was supposed to be God but did not know he was going to be strung up, and it was supposed his ole man, also the same God, who arranged it all - sounds more like a funny buggers getting together and not sorting out which one was Athur and which one was Martha

    not that....some of my best friends are .....

    Zionism is racism as defined by the UN, Israel by every dirty means available steals land and water, kill Palestinian freedom fighters and civilians, and operates an apartheid system to drive more Palestinians off their land

    a strip of bacon is usually more entertaining than meatloaf. it can also hold a tune much better.
