it's doubtful...

they would have beheaded him (that was for  Romans) probably crucified or flayed/scoured alive....the daily mail says Macedonian (like Alexander the Great)..and I heard a rumour he was a Palestinian bacon salesman.....all these are possible except the Dragon bit...that's just bollocks.:smile

except ....

Islam wasn't 'Invented ' until the seventh Century A.D....so if he wasn't a Christian he was some kind of pagan.

Lol

Do a search on st George and see how many country's he's the patron st for. Look at the various creeds and ethnicity's he represents. The St clearly changes colour and ethnicity depending which country he represents :smile

I have this image of the EDL celebrating St George's day yesterday, flying the  GEORGE flag for a brown Greek/Turk who has never stepped foot in the UK who was not even names George at birth.  LOL.
Thinking about it, regarding the 3 lions England crest. Which part of England actually has lions proudly roaming throughout the country side LOL!
Now I am humming  that traditional English song "Jerusalem", I think that's some we're in Peckham if I recall correctly:lol:
Can't we just have that guy from the tv advert for "PLUS NET" for our patron st, now he fits the bill:biggrin:

St Geoerge

Should be celebrated for bringing together all MAN kind - well at least the married man kind, as isn't he the patron saint of "son in laws"?

 

Think about it:lol:

St Georgres Day...

Started at "silly' O'clock. Drive to leeds to install equipment, show customer how to update software on Audi's. Job done, drive back home, collect dog (and large bill) from vets. Get home, go to play football, then pub for a few pints of recovery juice, home for a curry with Mrs Stunty, then collapse on sofa..... 

Im thinking it would have been easier if it were a bank holiday... much less hassle.............

Hope everyone enjoyed theirs', English, adopted English, or just "joining in"

:biggrin:
