Re: HOA meeting and prayer that ends with "in Jesus' name"

Ellen, I must respectfully disagree. I had to google "draconian," so we both learned something. :read: Ok, this made me laugh. Thanks. ;)) Smitcompton , yes, it was simply out of habit that I said "our" instead of "my". My apologies. As for the verses I couldn't post, ...

Re: HOA meeting and prayer that ends with "in Jesus' name"

What was a simple discussion on whether an expression of a specific religion is appropriate in a HOA meeting has evolved into a discussion of personal beliefs, which is off-topic. My comment is not aimed at any one PSer, it's just an observation that proves discussions involving religion are a can ...

Re: HOA meeting and prayer that ends with "in Jesus' name"

Missy , I appreciate your polite post. The only thing is, I never (as far as I can consciously see) insinuated anyone who didn't believe the same as me is bad. Especially from the post you quoted (which I did not quote as it gets lengthy). I am truly scratching my head. While I knew posting in here...

Re: HOA meeting and prayer that ends with "in Jesus' name"

Honestly, I really don't think it matters. To me what matters is this moment, right NOW. I don't need to spin up beliefs about an assertion that in thousands of years, has had zero objective evidences presented to support it. I need to pay attention to this moment and how I'm experiencing that, not...

For Kenny and those who think people praying in Jesus name is arrogant and/or shoving religion down someones throat, it's far from that.

Re: Kefir

And I had quite a sweet tooth, so that is saying something. But even more interesting is the change in my h...

Re: Makers of that film on PP "selling fetus parts" indicted

Admittedly, I have not done a ton of research on this. But I did remember seeing at least one video clip in the past of a meeting between PP and the undercover people. So I did a cursory search just now to try and find that video and found a Catholic site that actually links 9 videos of meetings. I ...

Re: Skin Troubles at 40

JJ, I came across this gal not too long ago when searching about Kefir (which is supposed to help acne, it's a probiotic). Her before and after photos are jaw dropping. She definitely is in the camp of what you put in you will come out on your face, along with emotional health. Anyway, I feel for ya...

Re: Would you like to try allowing discussion of religion on

Under today's conditions, I don't think a Steam Room/Kitchen/Whatever could be as successful.

Re: Question re. AGBF's Thread About the Catholic Boys

Ellen and Kenny, safe rooms are rooms that we have now on college campuses and who knows where else, could be at work places for all I know.

I totally agree with Gypsy's statement also.
