once again,proof "that whats good for the goose is NOT good for the gander"

Silly game, golf. Wasting their time hitting a ball into a hole with a stick when they could be doing something useful like kicking a ball between two posts with their boots.
Malkie from Glasgow
How long should we go on respecting that other people demand that "we" conform to their behavioural standards when "we" do not have the same belief that underlies those behaviours? Why does not my conviciton carry the same weight as "their" convictions? Down with ALL religions! Let humanity reign.
Barney from Swithiod posing a question
But who could we laugh at if the LDOS didn't exist?

Maybe the new Tescos will light a fire under this community for "Free Sundays for all". Free to travel by ferry, free to shop, free, like the rest of Scotland.
Professor M from Lewis
You couldn't make this up, AL. Barney, how right you are.
Jill from EK
Somehow free to shop at Tesco doesn't quite do it for me. Free to shop at local shops, now that would be something!

Well said Arnish! Bout time these islands started moving forwards and getting away from the perception that moving forward is such a bad thing! You won't find any more double standards and hypocrisy than in a church on a Sunday here. Those that are true believers wouldn't be imposing their beliefs, cos after all 'judge not' and all that...I have a church elder that gives me no amount of grief, why I wish I only knew - I 've done nothing to his or his but never mind - yet he'll quite happily go and sit in the church every Sunday. Its not the religion that makes the problems its the attitudes of those that go (not all admittedly but a fair few). Its the same with the petition AGAINST the Sunday sailings - not much got said about the petition FOR it, and I'm sure it attracted a lot more signatures. It really is about time the minority stopped ruling the majority. Sorry didn't mean to start going on there...it just gets me blood boiling!

I agree Barney. I believe in absolute freedom of belief from which position I believe in freedom of action moderated only by the need not to infringe on other's freedom. Therefore the sabbath ( for want of a better word) may be celebrated, or not, on Friday, Saturday or Sunday or, indeeed, any other day. What I cannot abide is the imposition of a sabbath on any of us.

silly question FC, there's the whole human race to laugh at...
Mia from purrondering at the pc
Am I right in assuming that , if they so desired , the Golf Club could open it's bar on a Sunday (no licence restriction). If so then wouldn't it be absurd that members could sit in the clubhouse drinking but unable to play the course !! Meanwhile visitors can stroll the fairways !!! Only in Lewis !!!! No wander people laugh !

"because once again we are in danger of becoming the (inter)national laughing stock. . " What do you mean, 'in danger of'?
