    Well, the Dutch couple’s relationship is set in stone.
    (rather touching, actually.)

    I couldn’t agree more on that.

    They were married in 1842, the lady was 22 and the colonel was 33, but he was a protestant and didn’t belong to the nobility.

    After being married for 38 years, the colonel died in 1880 and was buried in the protestant part of the cemetery against the wall. His wife died in 1888 and had decided not to be buried in the family tomb but on the other side of the wall, which was the closest she could get to her husband. Two clasped hands connect the graves across the wall.

    A protestant cannot be buried in a consecrated catholic cemetery…
    Religion! Uniting people since Jesus!

    Thankfully, the Sunnis and Shiites are showing how different groups within the same religion can get along.

    Using cheese brine makes sense. It is basically salt water, and can’t freeze in normal winter temperatures.

    If I looked like that, I’d spend most of time underground!

    That’s not really religion, that’s mans INTERPRETATION of “religion”.
    Just like the Inquisition, that’s not in any Bible, that’s what a MAN though, and did.

    That is true of all religion- its mans interpretation of spirituality.

    Jesus would never have approved of the kind of sectarian strife that so- many Christians went through for so long.

    Don’t you just love sectarian religion?

    You mean still go through, right? Otherwise, why are there so many churches?
