Perhaps the gigantic 'double chin' that obliterates your neck?

LOL If you had made some prior enquiries, then you might find that the reason "harbal" is not watching is for some OTHER reason than the one that you may be assuming here.
I wondered about that too :lol:
Hey, so long as he's not giving money to the murderers, either through his active participation or his passive absorbing of their advertising, from which they derive their profits, I'm fine. I'm not concerned why he opts out.

Interesting, though, that others, knowing full well what Qatar has done, are opting in. It's remarkable how human nature doesn't change, though...let there be any attrocity, no matter how great, and the vast majority will rationalize going along with it. We are not nearly so far from the days of death camps and holocausts as we think we are, and maybe we are not the upright moral advocates of human rights we so often tell ourselves we are.
AND, the way so-called "christians" JUDGE, condemn, criticize, and/or HATE "others" of other 'faiths' was STILL VERY CONSISTENT, in the days when this was being written.

This one here is a PERFECT EXAMPLE of just how common people would LOOK AT and FIND the 'wrong' in "others" but be completely IGNORANT of their OWN, OBVIOUS, FAILINGS.

I guess that makes me 'one of the others' then. (btw, I don't watch adverts if that helps).

We are just around the corner from death camps. I bet your house is full of products manufactured in China.
EXACTLY, and this is without even looking into what the people of that country have DONE TO the peoples in other countries.

I just wanted to point out the hypocrisy of IC's virtue signalling when you consider how much we rely on stuff being manufactured in China, pretty much with slave labour and yep, pretty certain China has a form of 'death camp'.

A huge number of these migrant workers will be watching the World Cup, the ones that are alive and the other ones that are in IC's heaven (although, there might not be TV in IC's heaven :wink: )

Yes, as I said, EXACTLY.

"immanuel can" is only LOOKING AT the "qatar" situation, and judging/ridiculing, because it is an "islamic" country and NOT a "christian" country.

That is NOT EXACTLY what I am implying at all.

IC is quite right to his opinion of a personal boycott of the idea of World Cup 2022 based on the terrible way migrant workers have been treated. However, he is suggesting that people like me, who will watch the games and still enjoy the actual football are in some way lacking in ethics, that he is morally superior because of his stance, to which I point out his hypocrisy in owning Chinese manufactured goods.
To be honest if he is serious about the ethics then he should never watch another football match again that is operated by FIFA - the corrupt condoners of such despicable acts.
I don't think it is a Christian v Muslim thing at all and certainly if Qatar were a Christian nation that was guity of the awful things being reported of migrant workers, It's likey he would have the same stance.

Yes I KNOW.

I should have said and wrote, "immanuel can" is ALSO only ....

What about the terrible way workers have been treated with the things that "immanuel can" itself has bought DIRECTLY?

OF COURSE "immanuel can" LOOKS AT, JUDGES, and TALKS ABOUT what "OTHERS" do, which NOT LOOKING AT, JUDGING, and TALKING ABOUT what itself does, even when it is doing EXACTLY what it says 'you' and "others" doing.

AGAIN, EXACTLY. Which means you are EXACTLY Right here.

If "immanuel can" was serious about 'ethics', then "immanuel can" would NOT do half of what it does.

We would just have to wait and see.

However, I have NOT seen NOR heard a single word EVER from "immanuel can" about taking a stance when the people from "christian" countries go into "muslim" countries and absolutely DESTROY their way of life as well as KILL those completely INNOCENT citizens.

Also, I have NOT heard NOR seen a single word from "immanuel can" regarding the people in "western" NOR "christian" countries, which MISTREAT, and do AWFUL 'things' to, the migrant workers in those countries. But "immanuel can" does a a very strong tendency to OVERLOOK SOME things.

England v USA 0-0

What a boring game that was. England need to drink some energy stuff prior to their next game...a woeful performance. :(
