Tunesmith:
Have you read "THE BIBLE" And by "THE BIBLE" are you holding out one of its translations or are you hieing to a carefully examined example of the original parchments in their original language(s)?

My rabbi argues that neither abortion nor homosexuality are prohibited in the original versions. I'm not sure if I agree with him about the second issue, but I agree with the first. Nowhere does it prohibit abortion and in fact it holds for the mother's right to life ahead of that of her potential unborn.

Considering the phenomenon of spontaneous abortions, may it not be noted that God performs most abortions?

Having written the above, even the Catholic church has given the Pope the power to interpret and/ or amend ancient texts. Since that power is possessed by an INDIVIDUAL, why can't a Democracy or a Republic determine that times NOW are not as times THEN and amend or alter concepts after due consideration? Why should a dictator get to make decisions denied to deliberative bodies?

I am in no way saying this is a trivial matter. Quite the reverse, but I think it is one that society can and should address.

I take you mean Henry XIII, Duke of Bavaria in the 13th century. Quite a sensible bloke it appears. Pioneer of street lighting and weapon control:

"During Duke Henry's reign, the Bavarian Peace Ordinances were put into place in his domains, stating, "Anyone out of doors at night without a lantern is violating the peace and is suspect of crime." The ordinances go on further for the city of Landshut that anyone carrying a sword or dagger by day or night was liable to heavy penalties." (From Wiki)

Although I detest Jacob ("Call me Jake"?) Rich-Mong's supercilious, pompous, toffee-nosed persona, I do wonder to what degree his utterances are influenced by his desire to get himself noticed, and to position himself for a leadership-bid should the opportunity arise?

I find it difficult to believe that any decent, civilised human being, let alone one who wears his Christian beliefs like a badge, would genuinely hold some of the opinions attributed to him - 'wonderful' food-banks being one.

Rees-Mogg is an anachronism that does not belong in the 21st century. Pretty much like most religious zealots I suppose. I have no issue at all with people in authority, or anyone else for that matter, having religious beliefs as long as they don't try to foist those beliefs onto anyone else. The trouble is that people like Rees-Mogg would abuse that authority to ensure that their medieval attitudes are applied to the population in general. Having him in power would be very dangerous.

Because of the Clerical abuse revelations and their opposition to same-sex marriage, religion is gradually bening written out of decision making in Ireland
Later this year it will lose the right to demand baptismal rights in the 90 plus% of Irish schools it controls
Religion is a dying malignant force - not before time, and you want a bible-bashing fundamentalist caricature for a prime minister!!!
