Additional Information

  • Biography
    I am an Anglican, and a member of the Scottish Episcopal Church. I am a Trinitarian, believe in the seven sacraments; I hold fast to the Nicene, Apostles and Athanasian Creeds, and the Chicago-Lambeth Quadrilateral. Despite being a moderate liberal, I'm rather old-fashioned in a lot of ways. Ask me about it.

    Nicene Nerd:
    The answer is probably really complicated. Ask Katy.

    Pointer: "I'm going to change the rules. 15: No bullying Katy. She is protected. Bullying Katy will result in immediate perma-bannage, with no ban appeal."

    Josh (J): "Rule 16: Katy is not allowed to slink off in shame."

    So Long

    Gang, it's time I bid you goodbye. CTF's been a big part of my internet life for nearly 5 years, but I'm cutting the cord. Life's getting in the way, and realistically, I'm not dedicating any time here. New pastures, etc. I think I'll be around until the end of this week (Sunday), so if you want to keep in touch, send me a PM and we can work something out. So, for old time's sake... Grumpy Cat out.

    Will/do you watch the Olympics?

    I'll watch a lot of them. My family are individually interested in various different sports, and we're all interested in things like athletics, so the coverage tends to be on in the background a lot even if we're not paying huge amounts of attention to it.

    Historical RP interest check

    This would probably grab me (I won't be able to do anything until a week tomorrow tho). I'd be happy with most periods, but I do have a soft spot for the 20th century
  5. I'm off roadtripping in Europe, so I'll be gone 24th-1st. See you on the other side, kids!

    Breastfeeding in public

    Breastfeed wherever is necessary, whenever is necessary. Boobs are for feeding babies, so it shouldn't perturb us to see them used as such. Women shouldn't have to cover up to do it, and anyone uncomfortable has the ability to just look away.

    Your Translation?

    NIV for all-round use as I like the to-the-point, no-frills way it reads. I have versions of KJV, Good News, ESV and Revised Standard that I'll also dip into for different reasons, depending on what I need.
  9. I wish we had more of a running community on CTF... time to do some research and see if I can find a good forum for it!

      I'm here! But I guess I don't really count as a community.

      I'm here too! ...But I don't count either. lol

    What book are you reading now?

    Blood on the Walls: Memoirs of an Anti-Royalist from Miner's Row to Royal Palace - Willie Hamilton Engaging, honest and very very witty - I'm really enjoying it, and different stuff to my usual list of travel writing, running books and history that I usually read over my summer holidays.

    Beating your children

    I come from a home where my parents consider raising your voice to be vulgar and so don't do it (I've heard my dad shout maybe.. 5 times, if that?) and punishments were never physical, so I know it's perfectly possible to raise children to be well-mannered, polite and respectful without resorting to physical violence. I really dislike the idea of raising children with the idea that "I'm sorry" means "please don't hit me". Whilst I firmly disagree with physical punishment (spanking, smacking etc.), however, I appreciate that other people see it differently and experienced physical punishment at home that was reasonable and considered. Used rarely, and as a last resort, I can understand why parents choose physical punishment. Punching a child in the stomach or the head is abuse, plain and simple. Heavy blows to the stomach (think adult power onto a child or teen's body) runs the risk of doing significant damage to spleen, liver or kidneys, which can lead to massive internal haemorrhaging - and it's easier to achieve than you think. We pull kids out of sports because of concussion - how much more damage would a direct blow to the head potentially do? In short, there's a massive difference between a swat on the rear or the backs of the legs, and full-on assault.
