The Roman Empire was never Democratic in today's definition of the word
" democracy" .

But the teaching of Christianity has managed to change man-kinds thoughts on this type of governing . It is unfortunately not perfect but probably better than in Roman times . So until someone comes up with a better solution for human kind , we will have to stick with the type of Democracy that we know.

Perhaps ' TallyRand would you have a solution ?

The solution is certainly not Christianity. Never in the 2000 years or so of Christianity has there not been "Wars or rumours of wars" between those pertaining to be Christian; indeed how many of those wars were waged for the ascendency of one Christian sect over another. Religious wars were fought for centuries in Europe and the East.. The Crusades were biggest blood bath in the name of Christ where the first casualties were Eastern Christians (Because they look like Moslems) massacred by the blue eyed fair skinned Christians of the Roman persuasion.

I actually thought that I was talking about Democracy , or do you consider democracy to be a religion, if so , carry on . and yes ! I say to each his own . Never have I tried to convert anyone . you are talking a load of nonsense as far as I am concerned .

Canada , will now bring in the 25 thousand refugees
between now and February , it's best that the plan
be spread out over the 3months ,
they will be coming from camps in Lebanon ,Turkey
and Jordan , and will be housed in military barracks
on a temporary situation , also another 10 thousand
immigrants privately sponsored by mid 2016 . a
much better plan for all involved ,of course including
the refugees .
At the press conference yesterday , the minister was asked
how many Christian's would be accepted from the refugees,
His answer was , we are dealing with the most desperate
and vulnerable , religion is not a consideration . smile.gif
also the cost to the country , He said " #677million over 6 yrs
but it will balance out in time as it has done before with
similar situations in the past .

He also said ''But No Single Straight Men''.
Does he really think that no gay men would be dangerous?
Silly stereotypical rubbish.

Hi Betsy , I'm not sure if your post is meant to be
tongue in cheek or not , however he never did
make such a remark .

hi Betsy , I have just read your link , I did hear that
Canada would not take single men as refugees because
of security reasons , but never have I heard gay men
being mentioned in particular . and certainly not at the
press conference on Tuesday given by John McCallum
minister of Immigration and Refugees which my post
was about , I guess the Press will say anything
to sell papers . Cheers smile.gif

Happy Thanksgiving to our Canadian members [the originators of the day], and also those living in the States.
