    Part 2 of the Lusk story on “Story” tonight.

    Lusk avails us with his political predictions. Sounds amusing.

    Some fake buck teeth would have made that picture so much better.

    Such as

    • Murray Simmonds 2.1

      More likely they’d have made your mug look a lot better. Cretin!

      • Murray Simmonds 2.1.1

        BM –
        Take your pathetic racial stereotyping some place else. Or better still, ram it down your own prejudiced throat.

    The massacre in Paris has prompted yet another debate over religion’s role in political violence.
    While we are well capable of being ghastly to each other without religion’s influence, it’s worth bearing in mind research out this month showing religion is associated with less altruism and forgiveness in children: http://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/nov/06/religious-children-less-altruistic-secular-kids-study

      “Almost 1,200 children, aged between five and 12, in the US, Canada, China, Jordan, Turkey and South Africa participated in the study. Almost 24% were Christian, 43% Muslim, and 27.6% non-religious. The numbers of Jewish, Buddhist, Hindu, agnostic and other children were too small to be statistically valid.”

      Sorry, not going to take that seriously. It’s research looking at Christianity and Islam and non-religious people. To extrapolate that to relgion as a whole is invalid, and renders whole cultures and subcultures on this planet invisible.

      • Ergo Robertina 3.1.1

        LOL yeah, it’s only statistically significant for the 3.7 billion or so Muslims and Christians, and however many identify as non-religious.
        But your apology is unnecessary.
        Save it for the religious faiths you so keenly defend.

    And who said NZ wasn’t over run by foreign investors, just look at these lap dogs.
