Spoilered for Religion:
As an active Episcopalian, I have to say that that sounds very atypical indeed for Episcopal behavior. Few Episcopalians are Calvinistic. Of course, I am sorry if a rogue individual or parish does harm to anyone, but I'd find it odd apologizing for belonging to a group that they were not exemplifying in their behavior.

Spoiler:
Sorry, forgot to spoiler religous topic. I didn't know you were Episcopal, dood!! I didn't mean to make it sound like I was apologizing for being a (former, I guess) Episcopal- far from it. It's just that I've had a few run-ins with Episocpal churches, or at least their leadership, over the years on certain topics. I'd love to hear more from you on your thoughts on the recent creation of the Anglican Church of America, email me on it sometime!

Why is it that people with nothing to say do so all the time?

To disperse over-accumulated saliva?

Mostly to avoid having to listen to the eery, echoing silence of my own mind. And to keep the jawmuscles in practice (obviously).

I think everyone should be required to pack up and move their stuff every 5 years. It's the best way to see how much useless s~@$ one has.

Edit: Nudity is optional.

Did that with cleaning out a storage container a few weeks ago. Of course, about half of it was deemed "useful." (Actually, I'm guilty of hoarding too. But when I said that a chair shouldn't be sent to the landfill/recycling centre just because it was missing a seat, I actually took the half-hour to fix it/make a new one. [Without duct tape!] Not what I've done when I've promised to fix plates and bowls and stuff.)

That church sounds awesome. Then again, one doesn't convert to a religion just because of the cool name.

Seriously? I thought that was fool-proof!

Maybe you needed to have a wardrobe malfunction.

I love to tell this story. Sorry if anyone has already heard it.

My grandmother was a kind and friendly woman, and she was handicapped and had difficulty moving around. She was also Unitarian.

And my grandfather, he used to sing the witchdoctor song in church.

When JWs would come to the door my grandfather would invite them in to sit in the living room, where my grandmother was inevitably reading. And then, without saying a word, he would walk out the back door. Now my grandmother was kind and friendly, but the tongue lashing she'd give my grandfather for doing this were tremendous, even better though was that she was a highly intelligent escapee from Episcopalianism (they said her handicap was a punishment from God--she was a polio victim) and she knew how to dress down some JWs. Yes. Good times. Good times.

As a former Episcopalian(I married a Baptist and now we're apparently Presbyterian), I must apologize for the disgusting bigotry your grandmother encountered. I have had to leave individual Episcopal churches before for their attitudes towards certain things, but I have never encountered anything in my time in the church to imply that polio was a punishment from God for anything and I would have strong words with anyone who stated otherwise. A trial or burden, maybe- and that's a longshot, and that would be from life, not necessarily God. But a punishment? Not just no, Hell No.

And yes, I would have probably giggled at your grandpa singing the witch doctor song in church. And I was an acolyte.

I had a group of JW's come to my door a long time ago. Sat down and explained why I did not agree with quotes from the Bible in context. Invited them to church. One actually went the next Sunday. Never saw them again though and the Catholic Mass seemed to totally confuse him. Am I bad that this made me chuckle?

There was a gentleman who goes to church every Sunday and most other days as well. Always dresses very nice. Is in a wheelchair. I remember talking to him outside after church once about it. How he shows up every Sunday and how we have so many PAT Catholics who only show on Christmas and Easter. That maybe there was a lesson to be learned here. He said yes well he had spent years trying to learn it while he was stuck in the chair. I smiled and told him here I thought he was the one teaching. He being the one who made it to church, and seemed more devout then the choir.

People need to own up to their prudishness. It's not necessarily a bad thing, and thinking someone is somehow lacking in intimate company, morals or ethics because they enjoy viewing fantasy bombshells with impossible breasts on their books isn't necessarily a good thing.

I don't recall the OP of that thread saying anything like that and yet you have all these "high-minded" people making snide remarks about him and his beliefs. Some people need to grow up.

I'd agree more if his kids showed up at home sneaking that stuff into the house. However, he's the one who is buying it and wants to bring his kids and family into something that he feels has too much cheesecake-y content. I also think the situation would be different if he didn't want his wife and kids to play this game and felt he had to hide the books around the house or something- there's an OLD Dragon Magazine letter to the editor to that effect. I think his situation is more than bit weird, but then again, I don't have kids.

Well, Curtis and Danielle continued to argue over which art school their son Alex would attend, never knowing that Alex had bypassed both of them and decided to study the fine art of being guide in the Himilayas under an ancient sherpa mentor. Meanwhile, Bill's plans for a hostile take-over of Mark's company were thwarted by a timely intervention from Bill's ex-wife, Peggy, with some rather embarassing information about his personl hygiene habits. And, across town, Jeremy was shocked to learn his boyhood pet Sparky had not really run away, but had in fact....No, wait! That's my soap opera.

Officially 101. It's 75-79.5 in my house with the A/C bravely blowing, depending on where in the house one is. I'm suppressing the urge to go au naturale.

Well I think that some of the art straddles the "line" yet I have not seen any that crosses that said line. If my children were younger I might have an issue with it. I do keep some of my dragon magazines and any Heavy Metal magazines away from my youngest. My oldest is not 15 and sees worse when out with his friends than anything ever printed by Paizo.
