My grandparents were heavily into the god thing and although this “ faith “ was not passed on to my father ( or my mother ) my two brothers and myself were religiously (🥴) dressed in our best Sunday clothes and sent off to the nearby church ( Moravian ).

As 3 adolescent boys we soon realised that we were not going to be held accountable for visiting the local playground, meeting up with our mates or just hanging around the village when we should have been attending gods wishes , least of all by our non church going parents !!
During the week a chance encounter with grandad we usually stuck to the script with the little ( white ) lie:

grandad: “ didn’t see you at church on Sunday ? “

us: “ we were late and stood at the back “

 

After a while grandad admitted defeat and told us we didn’t have to pretend to go to church every Sunday and that he had known for years of our deceit !!

An awkward moment for sure and after promising to keep god in our hearts we were excused church duty, not that we ever went 😀.

 

So the Sunday clothes were hung back in the wardrobe, the sensible shoes were placed carefully at the back of the understairs cupboard and never saw the light of day again , except for weddings or funerals maybe.

 

I don’t question anyone’s faith in their particular religion and will usually go along with it , within reason, to keep the peace, my ex wife ( Brazilian ) was a devout Catholic and my current gf heavily into the Buddha thing.

 

IMHO people can continue to pray to their “ gods “ if it makes them happy, it doesn’t affect my life and we all need something to believe in !!, it’s no more far fetched than believing that Spurs will win the league next year !!

An interesting way of coming out Rooster, last paragraph in a weekly column. But I am sure it took courage just the same. Good for you.

Yes, thanks for recognizing the courage. 

 

It's not every day I admit to the missus that I prefer a bit of spicy sausage to her som tam.

Champions' or Premier?

 

We came within 90 minutes of the former this year!

 

I came close to believing there must be a god, or at least the spirit of Bill Nick looking down on us.

A jury decided the lawsuit not a judge. Is a jury of your peers used in England or do a bunch of judges decide your fate

Both. And magistrates.

Better for you that it was a turkey that was roasted than a "rooster".
