51 terror attacks reported via my unreliable source since the BBC last deigned to mention one, 451 dead.

Never mind.
Now now. Unreliable they may be, but I think "underreporting" would be a more precise criticism.

Mmmm, I guess different organs use different criteria.

I guess those 134 Fulani Herders slaughtered in Mali by Dozo supremacists didn't attend Mass.

No wonder they don't matter.

Whilst I've never had an issue with the right of folk to worship whomsoever they choose, I do have an issue regard folk inflicting their beliefs upon unsuspecting infants.

Fine words. It does nothing of the sort, and the Archbishop's choice of words is unfortunate there. It's a planned/arranged full-scale murder using a major religious feast day as an excuse. Where else would a lot of people be congregating on Easter Sunday if not in churches? It's religion getting the blame for a supremecy issue/power struggle between deranged murderers and violent terrorists without feelings or conscience, and totally innocent victims, man woman or child. Religion is about belief in God and right over wrong.The rest, you make your personal choice and live (and die) with it. Sort it out for yourself, There are no bombs in the Scriptures.

Power struggles using force, weapons and killing anyone who gets in the way, have no concept or connection with any form of worship of or belief in God. The human condition and the celestial have no relation whatsoever with each other except in the right and wrong of it all. How often must these attrocities happen before people stop drum-banging that religion is to blame? Religion is just a convenient excuse. It's been going on since who knows when. Protestants in Ireland during the great famine opened food supply charities for their own people, but tried to make Catholics change their religion or they got nothing to eat. Landowners made dirt farmers sell their property to pay rents they didn't have. Famine, what famine? Ireland was exporting huge quantities of food abroad whilst the poor staved in thousands. A tribe of Choctaw Indians in America sent money they could ill afford to Ireland to help feed the starving thousands.Where is charity and love thy neighbour in all that? Not just my view; read you history if you disbelieve it. You might ask why so many Irish left the country. History will soon tell you. Leave or die was the choice, not their religion.

I ask again, where except in the minds of fanatics, is religion to blame?

Crap. My money was on those Sikh's. Looks like it was peace loving, radical, Muslin lone wolves. Who would have thought it. I have no doubt they all had mental health problems and didn't get the treatment they were seeking.

Yup. Paddy Power refused to take my fifty million pound bet even though they'd have paid back just fifty million pounds and tuppence.

The hospitals overcounted the bits and pieces. It must be difficult as a mortuary attendant wondering if you should count in half people when you've got some guts, two legs but no arms or head. Meanwhile a hospital near you has just received a jawbone and three lower arms.

I have a book by a forensic pathologist who was overwhelmed by the matching up of the body parts after the twin towers: one description in particular where he thought he had bits of a white male, and a limb from a black child was quite telling. It turned out through DNA it was the same person, just that some parts had shrunk and darkened in a similar process to how tribes in New Guinea used to make trophy heads.

No, it's an American. I can't remember his name, or the title, and I can't find the book: I suspect my missus has chucked it.

I shall have to, morbidly, read Unnatural Causes now too.
