    Right of Return?

    I read this in Der Spiegel a few weeks back - it reminded me of the Deutscher Bauernkalendar project (trying to make agricultural life look 'sexy' to the young generation in Germany.) Why not...

    Re: Question : Is Scotland Germanic?

    I don't hold that objective truth is determined by majority vote either - nor do Episcopalians or Roman Catholics. However, the nature of Protestant interpretation of Scripture is such that exegesis...

    Re: Question : Is Scotland Germanic?

    That simply shows a misunderstanding about how Catholicism worked at that point in history. One cannot read back the decrees of Vatican I in 1870 back upon the 16th-17th c. In fact, during the period...

    My family are from just an hour north of where you are at (I left there about 7 years ago.) And yes, the Hill Country is more 'Anglo' now (preserving more of old Anglo-American life or a similitude...

    Re: The Virtue of Idleness

    This concept is in fact the foundation of Southern civilization: New England had its puritanism and 'Protestant work ethic', and we Southerners had our leisure ethic. The 'work ethic' is oppression -...

    Re: Question : Is Scotland Germanic?

    Simply this: that Presbyterianism is no more a perfect system than Episcopalianism and Catholicism are. Presbyterianism is just as (and often more) guilty of idiosyncracy with its interpretation of...

    Re: Question : Is Scotland Germanic?

    I do understand it - those not Elders do have to submit to the Elders, which is why people were often called before the Elders to be tried in an ecclesiastical court. The Elders are a hierarchy -...

  16. Re: English, Dutch, German : more celtic than germanic

    Its true - the Classical world (Greek/Roman) had the most difficult time differentiating Celt, Gaul, and German (and sometimes even 'Scythian'). What we call Germanic and Celtic today are in fact...
