I see the overwhelming flood of two votes as an excellent advert for the "democratic process".

I'd like to see a re-polling which included some of the other options that were discussed. At this point I feel like I'm safe in saying that the overall feeling was one of "No Confidence..." :roll:

Hardly an executive mandate from the masses.

I keep seeing the Crucifixion scene from Monty Python's "Life of Brian," on this thread -- while they whistle "Just Look on the Bright Side of Life..." :lol:

Given that they are both theives, which rational person is going to trust either of them?

Thief <i>noun</i>
one who steals especially stealthily and without violence

so as you can see, neither are going to want you thinking bad of them, they're out to steal something.

He's not the messiah, he's a very naughty boy.
Blessed are the cheese makers. (Talking totaly allagorically of course.)
You will find that "an executive mandate from the masses" is also a Monty Python quote. BUT from which film?
"Supreme executive power derives on a mandate from the masses, not on some farcical equatic ceremony, in which a moistened bint lobs a scimitar..." (CLUE)

probably makes sense, seeing they were all going to die (depending on ones idea of "paradise" of course.

By the way, the one of things that irritate me is this: Why can't the translation of what they are supposed to have said be in "real" English?

All this thee, and thou, and shalt in their bible is just a load of bullcrap to make the stuff sound somehow to have more authority. (If it's got not much substance, make it sound as if it has...)

You are confused, and need to research into christian bibles.

The bible has been translated into thousnads of languages around the world, but for thoughts who dont understand the 'thous' etc there are bibles written in modern english.

The Youth bible is a popular for teens and for new christians/people wanting to find out more, and theres also 'The Street bible' has been translated into its simplest forms.

which is just another misinterpetation, because the bibles they used weren't correct interpetations... go back to the oldest and translate from there... it's eye opening, to say the least.

So many to choose from, and so many shades of meaning --wondering am I which Bible the real one is?
