Real men don't eat quiche...

Well it does to the people who post here... dispassionate and reasoned debate, with a good deal of humour thrown in for good measure.

At the risk of raising Nick's blood pressure ever higher... Macho Hymns.

Not all all – blood-pressure normal.
Just the usual sexist rubbish you get from the Daily Mail.

And you're post should have come with a warning – children and teenagers could have been exposed to that scandalous rag.

The published comments on that linked site seem reasonably sane to me.

I think Benvenio has raised a very interesting issue; one that I do not recall having been aired on here before.

We finished with Guide me, O thou great redeemer last Sunday, and the people - many of whom were visitors - raised the roof with it, male and female alike. We sang it from Laudate, where the pew edition prints the three English verses followed by a Welsh translation. Afterwards, someone asked me why we had only sung the first three verses. :roll:

Until you read the other things men are deemed to like and you begin to see a slightly more sinister approach to this survey. There is no evidence in the report about what pursuits the sampled men were given to choose from.

Which, therefore, tells you nothing about the men but the effect this item has on people.

Perhaps the survey should have asked which hymns "people" prefer to sing instead of perpetuating sexist myths. (Which, of course, suits the Daily Mail's rather frightening agenda.)

Try Tesco's Finest with goat's cheese and sundried tomatoes. Heavenly!

I may be wrong, but shouldn't that be three Welsh verses preceeded by an English translation?

Well done for using it. It's a snorting good sing.

Duw Duw butty. :wink:

Try Alsace (the home of quiche) onion tart, preferably with a chilled riesling.

Quite so; my point exactly - which was why I actually wrote, "We finished with Guide me, O thou great redeemer last Sunday, and the people raised the roof with it, male and female alike". [my italics]

You're not wrong, of course, but if the Welsh had been printed first, I might not have made such an elementary mistake. :oops:
