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.

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.

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.

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.



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]

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.

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.

Freemasonry is not a religion, nor is it a substitute for religion.

It is not permitted for Freemasons to discuss religion at Masonic meetings.

Last night, SFA chief executive Stewart Regan told the Record that the governing body had no control or influence over the hearing’s process or verdict. He said: “This was an independent process and there was no indication from the panel until their decision was made last night.”

The most hilarious thing about all this righteous indignation is we're supposed to think Rangers have been hard done by. The fine (assuming they don't go into liquidation) is only 20% of what they ripped Hearts off for in the transfer market they'll be unable to enter for a year (assuming they don't go into liquidation).

I was up in court this morning for defrauding the social of 150 million. Fined 160 large and sentenced to wear a tag for a year.

Is it cos I is Catholic? I have launched an appeal.

Join me in protest this Saturday. We will march with the failed bankers who are protesting about people protesting about their continued extravagant wages and bonuses.

Mactheknife I am not a "hollier than thou" person I am no better /worse than anyone else tho would like to be better,I have no time for those who criticise Masons who should be free to pursue whatever they choose,I find the organisation not to my liking the same goes for The Knights in the end Ghall says it all nice we slogan that, for those of you who continually snipe at people who practice their religion/faith you are doing them and yourself a dis-service,you should on a quiet day pop into a church and spend a bit of quality time alone with your thoughts/reflections it can only be of benefit to you,in my case I go to mass as often as possible to offer prayers for those of mine who are no longer here and for the poor in spirit/body of this world,you will hear no words of hatred preached,only charity/love/peace there cannot be anything wrong in that surely,it,s not for everyone fair enough but it gives me personally spiritual strength.
