Re: My Lonely Search for God

Re: Request for quotes/ideas

Thanks for reporting back. This made my day.

Seriously, I have been "in the trenches" here for almost 10 years. This stuff is what keeps me going - and knowing there are lots more examples about which we never hear.

Re: Harm vs. Purity

This is such a tricky issue, and it can he extremely unhealthy (emotionally and/or physically) at either extreme. I hate the way we emphasize and teach strict "purity", and I truly loathe certain elements, but I have no problem with the idea of a Law of Chastity that has a lot of our current element...

Re: A Testimony (?) of Modesty

Just to consider: Our cultural modesty norms were determined by heterosexual men. That is obvious, since there are no "temptation-based norms" for what men are expected to wear that are not so extreme as to be obvious to pretty much anyone. (e.g., Don't wear Speedos during a baseball game.) Perhaps ...

Re: Repentance, confessions, and letting go of the past

My response might not appear to answer the post's questions directly, but I think it does. I think it is important to get to the heart of the issues, as a whole.
