As most of you are aware, we had a crash to forums and were down for over two days a while back. We did have to do an upgrade to the vbulletin software to fix the forums and that has created changes, VB no longer provide the hybrid or threaded forums. There are some issues/changes to the forums we are not able to fix or change. Also note the link address change, please let friends and posters know of the changed link to the forums. For now this is the only link available, https://forums.carm.org/vb5/ but if clicking on forum on carm.org homepage it will now send you to this link. (edited to add https: now working.

Again, we are working through some of the posting and viewing issues to learn how to post with the changes, you will have to check and test the different features, icons that have changed. You may also want to go to profile settings,since many of the notifications, information in profile, also to update/edit your avatar by clicking on avatar space, pull down arrow next to login for user settings.

Edit to add "How to read forums, to make it easier."
Pull down arrow next to login name upper right select profile, or user settings when page opens to profile,select link in tab that says Account. Then select/choose options, go down to Conversation Detail Options, Select Display mode Posts, NOT Activity, that selection of Posts will make the pages of discussions go to last post on last page rather than out of order that happens if you choose activity threads. Then be sure to go to bottom and select SAVE Changes in your profile options. You can then follow discussions by going through the pages, to the last page having latest responses. Then click on the other links Privacy, Notifications, to select viewing options,the forums get easier if you open all the tabs or links in your profile, user settings and select options. To join Super Member, pull down arrow next to login name, select User Settings and then click on tab/link at top that says Subscriptions.

Thank you for your patience and God Bless.

    Kim Darroch: Boris Johnson joins defence of press over cables publication

    Fellow Tory Michael Fallon had suggested journalists should be subject to Official Secrets Act


    Boris Johnson has come out in defence of the right of the press to publish leaked diplomatic dispatches sent by the former British ambassador to the US Sir Kim Darroch, saying it would amount to “an infringement on press freedom and have a chilling effect on public debate”.

    Johnson criticised the police over a warning to journalists that they could face prosecution if they publish any further leaked cables.Speaking at a Tory leadership hustings at Wyboston, in Bedfordshire, he said that while it was right the perpetrator of the leak was “hunted down and prosecuted” it was wrong for police to target the media.

    “It cannot conceivably be right that newspapers or any other media organisation publishing such material face prosecution,” he added.
    If things continue in this direction, Britain may end with constitutional protection of speech and press after all.

        Because currently we have high media presence lgbt activists breaking safeguarding child protection policies and getting apologized to. We have lgbt schools education on gender identity justified on the basis of the equality act, oblivious to the Gender reassignment being in the equality act, not gender identity.

          The hobbyhorse has been removed from the nursery cupboard. As it is at every opportunity.

          What possible relevance LGBTQ issues have to the leaking of diplomatic cables to a newspaper, which then published information from those cables, can only be known to BMS!
          On the evidence:

          If there were no Patriarchs, no Exodus, no conquest of Canaan, no united monarchy under David and Solomon. Can the early biblical Israel described in the books of Moses, Judges, Joshua, and Samuel, ever have existed at all?

              From what I hear, this book will explain it to you.

                Well maybe he should go back to where he came from instead of complaining about the country he is in.

                    The issues of lgbt and of abortion are key in the west everywhere, just as equally so among the progressive left who for example in the absence of the devolved NI assembly want to impose abortion and SSM in the province, two of the three key issues which is causing the assembly to fail to meet.
                    So dont try and pretend these arent key issues of progressives as well as religious people. Indeed by complaining every time the examples come up of 'hobbyhorse' and obsession you either show you have the same obsession or you are trying to silence free speech.

                      No BMS LGBTQ issues is one of your hobbyhorses and you bring it up irrespective of the content of the thread. This thread being an example

                      LGBTQ issues have no bearing on the suggestion that the British press should be subject to the Official Secret Act, or on the deliberate leaking of secret intel to the press from someone in the British government.

                      No matter how hard you try you really cannot connect LGBTQ issues with any of that!
                      On the evidence:

                      If there were no Patriarchs, no Exodus, no conquest of Canaan, no united monarchy under David and Solomon. Can the early biblical Israel described in the books of Moses, Judges, Joshua, and Samuel, ever have existed at all?

                        No H_A, the examples given support the claim. LGBT features on a daily basis on BBC news, and as soon as anyone posts on the topic here, you join in.

                          Clearly you watch such topics avidly in order to "know" that.

                          It suggests an unhealthy fixation.

                            Whilst I have said its a major issue for society, hence my posts on the issue, you are so obsessed that you cant miss a single post on the subject.
