I thought that the most dangerous of all animals was... a clever sheep?
I always thought it was a moose. A moose bit my sister once.
(You knew this was going to come up sooner or later...)
I guess you got me there.
Unitarians are so weird they are hardly a religion at all - atheists, Witches, agnostics, you name it - they are all "welcomed" in a Unitarian church.
How can a 5x8 reproduction of a painting of Jesus be a dead giveaway I'm LDS. Jesus' face head and shoulders. Nothing else is in the picture.That's like me seeing a picture of Jesus in someone else's cube or home and saying "Hey I bet they're Baptist." If I wanted to use a picture to say I was LDS I would get a picture that would emphasize that. Besides the picture is for me. It's not to tell everyone what I believe. It is to remind me of what is important to me. Confucious once said "When I seek true manhood (or true moral values) I find them right beside me." In other words a person will surround themselves with what they truly seek. No matter what that thing is. If one seeks drugs they will know users, and dealers. If one truly seeks Christian values they will go to church and spend time with the members of that church. If one seeks to be a practitioner of the martial arts, he will seek out an instructor of an art like, Seven Star Praying Mantis Kung Fu, take lessons, weave it's principles into his life, and spend time with classmates. A true seeker of these things will always have them close by. I truly seek a strong family, a strong nation, good moral values, a strong mind, body and soul. I seek for the goodness that lies within each of us. I seek to overcome human frailties by searching myself for the fault I see in others. I believe that Jesus would approve of all these things.
In the past, I had occasions to be in the ho,es of several Mormons on various occasions. Without fail, every single Mormon family had the same depiction of Jesus ia a reproduction of a painting.
You certainly are not going to tell me there are a few specific depictions of Jesus that are not almost always found in a Mprmon home, are you?
I've heard the SLC area in Utah called the "happy valley." It's a strange place
I would if I could but I can't so I won't.
Bill Handel of radio station KFI had a show one morning about people who let their 12 year-old kids go to nudist colonies. He defined the numbers and kept talking about how many children were going to these nudist colonies.
I wondered what he was up to.
Then he asked if we knew how many lawsuits had been filed concerning sexual mistreatment of the young girls and boys. The answer: ZERO
Then he said, "How many lawsuits have been filed for sexual mistreatment of young boys and girls against the Catholic Church?"
It's safer to send your 12 year old daughter or son to a nudist colony than it is to send them to church?
I laughed my butt off.....it's not valid reasoning, but I'm sure a few people burned their toast that morning.
Well, I realize this sounds incredibly sactimonious, but people are supposed to be able to tell you are a Christian by your acts, not by how you decorate your cubicle.
Actually, "Happy Valley" is south of Salt Lake City proper, in the Provo area.
That all depends upon what your definition of sexual mistreatment is.
That analogy would be like Planned Parenthood coming to a public school chalked full of 100% "pro-choicers" in order to tout the benefits of abortion. How many complaints would that trigger to the school board? ZERO
My point is that nudist-camp families are already tainted; their definition of what constitutes sexual mistreatment is already going to be on a different plane if not different planet. Their definition of age of consent is also likely to be quite younger, and ya better believe that the younger members of such a family are also likely heavily ingrained with that view of the world.
Finally, some counselors are starting to make the claim that intentional, prolonged immodesty introduced to children can and in and of itself be a form of sexual mistreatment. This was a new concept for me; but I partially agree with them.
