Poppycock

Home » News » Poppycock

We applaud the English and Scottish Football Associations in going ahead with their plans for players to wear poppies on their armbands in their match on Armistice Day, 11th November. The two FAs have a history of remembering and respecting those who lost their lives in wars. FIFA, the international football body, have threatened to impose sanctions if they wore the poppies as it does not allow any symbols that are political, religious or commercial. We support the stance of the two FAs in that the poppy has no political, religious or commercial significance. To us, FIFA's stance is poppycock. The FA's stance shows respect.

On Saturday 26 January twelve avid Good-Faith book readers met to discuss Marcus Borg's book "Meeting Jesus Again for the First Time." We all agreed, whether we were more or less familiar with Borg's ideas, we all had, indeed, seen Jesus afresh through the reading or rereading of this book! The style of Borg's writing is scholarly, logical and assessible, which made it easy...
