My life is a to-do list

With each item dependent on another being done first. Which suggests that there must be a starting point - if I were to dig deep enough. But I haven't found it yet.

One of the chaplaincy team said that some members of the congregation looked a bit prim and tight-lipped during Joseph's monologue.
'The men?'
'No! The church-going guests.'
'Oh, phhtt to them.'

Said in love of course. (The standard Christian cop-out when you're being nasty to someone as in, "I'm saying in love to you that I think God doesn't like you having a tattoo/long hair/pierced ears etc.")

I don't know what could have upset them though. Joseph does say, 'An angel, my arse!' and talks about not having sex but that's quite Biblical. (Maybe not the arse bit.) Maybe it's 'No sex please; we're Christians.'

This why I'm a non Christian - said with love of course ;0)

I have tattoos, lots of ear piercing and very long hair!! not married and 4 kids.... no hope for me ;0)

I don't get the no sex thing either, or is that no sex outside marriage...

You'd fit in well at Zac's, Amanda! It's more 'we don't talk about that sort of thing' although it could be that they don't do it either ...

Sadly, yes, gleds.
