I think it's sad and quite pitiful that there is all this aggression over the possibility of getting an item of clothing for a discount which is incidentally of low quality and over priced but that is not the point.

It seems to me that they have forgotten about what is important and are more concerned about self and one's own image.

People are fighting and dying for their rights but these lot are fighting for a t-shirt or a pair of underpants.

Consumerism at it's best.

FREE is the operative word, there's talk that they're in real financial trouble and could possibly go under. So I'm guessing that that will hope this sort of coverage will be good for them. Being cynical maybe they hoped that will turn out like this!

And religion is never a good thing imo.

religion is often misused. It has helped a lot of people through some very dark times, think it through mate.

You are right and if it brings solace and strength to those who believe in a faith it is good thing and in history and at present it is often misused. I'm not a fan myself and perhaps my post is wrong or ill judged.

i did have a chuckle at that video.

We've clearly been doing it wrong. For years we've been trying to get people to do that - evidently we didn't need the threat of war, fascism, redundancy etc. Just cheap shitty clothes!

Give it a rest, personal spirituality/belief in higher powers and organised religion are not the same thing, however Irish you might be.

Duff - They're not the same thing but it's not like there's no value in organised religion, strength and help and all that can come from belief and within but also from communities, many of which are built around parishes and such.

And I'm not just talking about it for the sake of it. I've only mentioned it a few times, and don't often don't bother as I don't want to take away from X feeling special. So leave off man.

The sample sales thread isn't really the place to discuss this, but I really don't get organised religion at all. I find it amazing that educated, intelligent are willing to be dictated to.

Eh don't worry about it, I'm more stridently anti religious than Dawkins, it adds a mysterious touch of intolerance to my persona

anyone who is religious in any way is a deluded fool and should be sent to an asylum.

religion has been the most divisive cultural phenomena and to think it's only been around for 2000 years.

i'm firmly of a belief that most folk who dig religion are thick as shit.

if you believe in a 'god', you might as well worship plasic bags as both are man made fabrications.
