"It would have been something more akin to a bread tie, so it wouldn't have been as bad as a black paper clamp , for what that's worth."

Doug Espi replied to Ed's discussion 'Going Nude In and Around the House....'
"I do think there is a connection between religious conservatism and a desire to not be nude. My girlfriend used to be super-religious (I've lightened her up later in the time we've been together, but she's not an atheist yet.) and…"

"and I agree with that, because it's well and good, but the roots of marriage are bad ones. It just seems that marriage is an outdated tradition that responsible adults no longer need."

"I support your movement, but I'd be satisfied if the end result was the abolition of the absurd tradition of marriage for all, or it being allowed for all."

Bryn replied to Doug Espi's discussion '"I'm praying for you"'
"Just say thanks. If they genuinely are going to pray for you, even though it won't do a thing, the sentiment behind it is kind, which can easily be respected in its own right. And if they are saying it in a passive- aggressive way because they…"

Zero One replied to Doug Espi's discussion '"I'm praying for you"'
"I usually just take it as a complement, I still sometimes wonder though.. When people say that is it true? Do they really even take the time to pray for you/me?  I have come to the conclusion that if someone states that they will pray for you…"

"I agree. If it's innocuous, I'd say, "Thanks." But there's always that one time out of ten when they are trying to guilt me into a conversion. I just give them a crooked smile and say, "Hey, whatever helps you sleep at…"

"I consider it annoying and presumptive even though I know they mean well.   I disagree, when someone says, in a debate context, they will pray for you, they are being condescending, that sense of 'mean well' you get is their lie."

Adam Weber replied to Doug Espi's discussion '"I'm praying for you"'
