Sorry Hayley, nothing personal.

Copy sent to rr:

This is post is nothing to do with Christianity & only put up to cause problems as are those following it.

This is part of the ongoing nastiness aimed at John by several member who have gone as far as Googling etc to try to find out about his private life & passing it round to any other member who asks!

You are not just spoiling this thread for John, but also Cynthia & several of us.

edit. This information being offered was NOT given by John


AnninGlos Report 9 Feb 2013 15:48

What a pity that some perfectly nice people on Genes have felt it necessary to spoil a thread that has had no nastiness on it. I know that Cynthia will cope but it really is not necessary just because a few people don't like one person. Surely you are all better than this. Very disappointing.


Merlin Report 9 Feb 2013 15:52

Its not neccessary,just ignore him.


Wend Report 9 Feb 2013 15:55

Whilst I do agree that John can be very irritating, I think this way of 'getting at him' is most unfair on Cynthia. :-(


Cynthia Report 9 Feb 2013 16:21

I understand perfectly well what is happening and do not wish to be drawn into it.

As Ann, who is a self-confessed church-goer will be aware, we gave up the 'eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth' theory 2,000 years ago.

We now turn the other cheek.

I also think it would have been the decent thing not to hijack this thread, Cynthia has posted on it in good faith ( literally) and kept it going for those who wish to read.

I don't suppose it's any good me asking as a 'friend' that all irrelevant posts are removed? by the sensible compassionate posters who are 'better than this'. Please? for Cynthia's sake and others who may have enjoyed the thread for its original topic.

this is a very specific thread I gardening and bird watching, they do veer off topic...but are not DELIBERATELY taken over as 'tit for tat'.


Cynthia Report 9 Feb 2013 19:55

Hard to believe that it's nearly Lent.........Ash Wednesday is looming already. :-S

I love the season of Easter more than Christmas. It always seems so hopeful and exciting.

Many churches will hold a service on Wednesday and some will include the Imposition of Ash - where the priest places the sign of the cross in ash on the communicants' foreheads.

Unfortunately, they don't do this at the church we are at now, but it used to happen at a previous church and I was never ashamed to be seen wearing the ash.

For Christians, the ashes are used as a sign of our mortality and the repentance of our sins.

It is a reminder to us that we all come from ashes, and to ashes we will return.


AnninGlos Report 9 Feb 2013 19:59

Cynthia is that any connection to 'sack cloth and ashes?'

Not being Anglican I don't know.


Cynthia Report 9 Feb 2013 20:14

Hi Ann yes, it's all part of the same symbolism.......repentance of our sins and looking forward to forgiveness. :-)
