I have just listened to Alex Thomson of Channel 4 running rings round Hugh Keevens and co on a radio station challenging them to explain why it took them so long to report on various aspects of the Rangers tax case.  Keevens eventually offered the explanation that he (Keevens) did not feel qualified to report on certain aspects of the case. Thomson also read out an e mail from a Glasgow journalist in which Thomson is referred to as 'Timmy Thomson' and  the Glasgow journalist promises to give Thomson a good Protestant beating. It made me think of Feck on here pointing out the bias which exists within 'Scottish Football Officialdom' and some were simply not getting it. It is clearly evident within journalism in Glasgow as shown by the sheer stupidity of the e mail sent to Alex Thomson which is now in the hands of Strathclyde Police and the fact he was able to discover quite easily aspects of the Rangers case which were too difficult for our own Glasgow based journalists.....or perhaps they did not look hard enough.......surely not.

It wasn't in an email,it was on twitter.

The weegie media have been very quiet on a lot of things regarding the old firm.

However i agree with you that Alex Thomson is a real journalist and is running rings round them.

You've got to laugh at these clowns contrasting Redknapp's reaction to the mistake in his game with Neil Lennon's in his. James Traynor wrote this morning

Redknapp went into Wembley's media auditorium and delivered a mature appraisal of the referee's performance that was free of malice. He said: "The referee's made an honest mistake.

"The ref hasn't done it on purpose. Refs don't do that."



I'd love to see Betfair Harry's reaction if it became a regular occurrence and he was beaten up, regularly abused, sent bombs, assaulted on video by an "innocent" assailant and ridiculed by hun journalists for complaining about it.

Oh, and Our 'Arry didn't bet himself for the Portsmouth manager's job. Managers don't do that.

I don't think I did. I was accused of continually bringing up religion (which I wasn't) by people who were continually bringing up religion. My earlier post referred to Alias's assertion that the email Dallas was sacked for was not sectarian.

Feck the guy that attacked Lennon got an eight month sentence for it.

Dont let the facts get in the way of you stories though eh?
By:

When: 17 Apr 12 21:13
He was given that sentence for breach of the peace and had already served all of it on remand as an untried prisoner (i.e he wouldn't have to do prison work and would have been allowed money to be sent in for purchases).

He did on the assault case. Had he just ran on the pitch and attempted to inflame rival supporters without assaulting anyone what would he have got? I'd have thought serving 4 months as an untried prisoner would've been a result

No idea feck, and not really interested. I told you before that I was glad to see the back of Dallas anyway.

I wonder though, are you secretly annoyed that the SFA didn't somehow salvage Rangers from their present predicament? Just imagine what a conspiracy story that could have been!Devil

There is a media bias towards Rangers of that there can be absolute no doubt. Look at how when Walter Smith walked out on Scotland for Rangers there wasn't even the slightest hint of criticism just 'welcome back Sir Walter'. Anywhere else in the world he'd of been slaughtered.

And Murrays dealings were never questioned either even when a blind man could see what he was up to. Selling off future merchandise revenues so he could get his hands on one big lump sum and in the process sacking all the shops staff was reported as 'Rangers in multi million pound windfall'. I guess after Murray tried to destroy the career of Graham Spiers for having the cheek to say anything critical of him a lot of the journos shat themselves although when you hear Traynor still defending Murray to the hilt and Chic Young doing the Ibrox PR man out of a job its no wonder so many want to see them up shiit creek.

that the club will be renamed as The British Rangers...

They will play in the English leagues...or they will claim for discrimination citing a welsh club (Swansea) is allowed to play in the English Premier League so why not them

There seems to be institutionalised sectarianism wherever you go.
..........

Roman Catholics are excommunicated if they wish to join Freemasonry whilst Church Of Scotland members can mix freely between their faith and the Lodge?

Check this out:

**The faithful who enroll in Masonic associations are in a state of grave sin**

..........

Its little wonder that there are good catholic boys in the columns.
No grown man is going to allow himself to be dictated to like that if he wishes to join any fellowship.
Catholic woman are not allowed to join the Star either though many are members.
Seems to an outsider looking in that the Vatican wants absolute obedience from its flock and G_d help anyone that does`nt conform.


............



QUESTION:

Can Roman Catholic`s become Freemasons?

RESPONSE: No, Catholics may not be Freemasons because of this group’s “irreconcilable” opposition to Jesus Christ and His Catholic Church.[1] Nor may they belong to the Order of the Eastern Star (a Masonic association for women), the Order of DeMolay (for boys), or Job’s Daughters or the Rainbow Girls (for girls). Popes Clement XII (1738), Benedict XIV (1751), Pius VII (1821), Leo XII (1825), Pius VIII (1829), Gregory XVI (1832), Pius IX (1846, 1849, 1864, 1865, 1869, 1873), and Leo XIII (1882, 1884, 1890, 1894, 1902) have repeated the prohibition against joining Masonic associations. The old Code of Canon Law (1917) imposed excommunication upon Catholics who became masons. Recent Vatican directives under Pope John Paul II have reaffirmed the long-standing ban.


DISCUSSION: Because the new Code of Canon Law (1983) did not explicitly excommunicate Catholics who become Freemasons, some confusion arose concerning whether Catholics may join Masonic groups. To address the confusion, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, with the approval of Pope John Paul II, declared that:


the Church’s negative judgment in regard to Masonic associations remains unchanged since their principles have always been considered irreconcilable with the doctrine of the Church, and therefore membership with them remains forbidden. The faithful who enroll in Masonic associations are in a state of grave sin and may not receive Holy Communion.[2]

unfortunately it's religion and the way people take sides on the subject which holds Scotland back and shows it up as a 'tribal' nation - which  is not a good thing to be (Sudan, Uganda, etc - these are 'tribal' nations too, most of Africa).
Tribalism is synonymous with savagery and killing in the name of tribe (or team) - these people are backward beyond belief .

until organisations which require us to take sides against other people - who are defined as being 'in the wrong' just by virtue of not being 'us' - are gone from this world, then people, gullible and naive as they are, will continue to fall under the spell.  And once they've got their heads full of 'we are right, they are wrong', all behaviours are legitimised.
People who hold with one religion - against all others - are modern-day savages and have no chance of thinking their way out of the cul-de-sac of hate into which they were driven.

so much for the sheep.
the sheep are sheep because they fall for the lies of their leaders so it's been good to see the liars who run/ran Rangers being tormented by a sudden 'light of truth' being shone on their corrupt dealings.
Interestingly, criminals like Craig White (how vulnerable and easily conned need you be to appoint him as your leader : one for the Rangers board there) don't use religion, they have no need of it. They are in-and-out merchants. Smash, grab and they're gone.

Mactheknife. I think if you take the trouble you'll find that the Vatican has also barred membership of the Knights of St Columba, the ''Catholic'' version of the little boys club. But I'm sure you'll be aware of that anyway?

Knights of Saint Columba
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Knights of Saint Columba

The Knights of Saint Columba is a Catholic fraternal service organisation and the largest of its kind in the United Kingdom.[1] Founded in Glasgow in 1919,[2] it is named in honour of Saint Columba, a Christian missionary from Ireland who helped to introduce Christianity to some of the people in the north. The organisation describes itself as being dedicated to the principles of Charity, Unity and Fraternity.[3] There are more than 8,000 members of the KSC, in over 340 councils across Great Britain—it features in England, Scotland and Wales. Membership is limited to practising Catholic men aged 16 or older, and promotes the social doctrine of the Catholic Church.[1]

Seem a harmless bunch of lads.
Any particular reason why the RC church barred them?

Why is KSC limited to practising catholics? Institutionalised bigotry if ever I saw it. Probably illegal too.
By:

When: 18 Apr 12 14:19
No doubt illegal. A bit like the British monarchy succession rules.Personally I think they should allow practising Protestants to join the KSC too. That would swell their numbers by at least a handfull.

Feck who are the RC catholic church to be looking down on anything or anyone m8.
They let their priests marry until the bishop of Rome as he was called then did not want the priests family inheriting his wealth so by letting priests not get married this was solved.
What is wrong with them?
They also say that masturbation is a sin???
Nae wonder the Big Yin stated that his RC upbringing allowed him to graduate in `A Level Guilt`.
By:

When: 18 Apr 12 14:36
The Holy Roman Church does not condemn masturbation by certified W@nkers so there's no need for you to be concerned. As for the 'Big Yin'. PHUD !!! ps Big Benedict is STILL the Bishop of Rome. pps Shouldn't you be oot collecting for the 'Fighting Fund'
