Thread Name: BS: The Coronation
Subject: RE: BS: The Coronation
Well, much as I hate to admit it here, we watched the main bit in the Abbey. As I said earlier, I love the pomp and ceremony. I was brought up in the Orthodox faith and my earliest memories of religious rites are of the ceremony and show of the Orthodox mass sung in archaic Slavonic. I had no idea what they were on about and it was so uncomfortable and boring for a kid to stand about for over an hour but now I can sit on my comfy sofa and watch these things objectively on my wide screen TV, it is great :-) Take the god nonsense out of religious rites and they are very entertaining. Remove the royal rubbish and the coronation is the same
