    According to my wife ( a woman)
    thanks Stan for clarifying that your wife is female. We had no clue.

    Yes, I would agree with Marvin. I remember the photo of your lovely bride on RTF and if she is not a woman, she certainly has ME fooled!

    I need a little help though with the “poor morals” thing. I have been confused about that for most of my life.

    I was born and baptized a Methodist and accepted the things I learned in Sunday School ... “God is Love” rings a bell.

    Then I spent most of my childhood in an assortment of boys’ homes and foster homes. The first family were strong in the Church of the Nazarene; strict fundamentalists. Church twice on Sunday, Wednesday night and prayer meetings the rest of the nights. With them I learned that poor morals included smoking, dancing, girls wearing lipstick, and movies. Some other stuff too, I forgot.

    Next stop was a boys’ home run by the Quakers. Pretty strict religious teachings again, uppermost was that war is evil and a true man of God will be a “conscientious objector” and refuse to serve his country in war.

    Then was a family of Lutherans which seemed pretty mainstream. I went through the Confirmation classes and learned all the quotes and things to say in church. Not much shocking there.

    By the time I reached adulthood, I considered myself a spiritual person and thought I knew what it meant to be a “good person” but had pretty much tuned out of organized religion.

    Married a Catholic (woman) 34 tears ago and though I have never converted ... something about having been previously married ... I do go to church somewhat regularly with her. I find the Catholics to actually DO the most good toward our fellow man of the religions I have been exposed to. They say it is immoral to use any form of birth control and the abortion issue is a priority that overrides most everything else. Not sure where they stand on molesting little boys but IMO action speaks louder than words.

    And while we’re at it, I may as well offend the Mormons. Though most of them claim to have changed their position, there was a long time when it was fine to have a nice “binder” of wives!

    Now why am I confused??? All these folks are reading out of the same bible, right? So while I agree with you that “morals are morals”, how in hell am I to decide which ones are “poor morals”.

    This is a serious question.

    We are a republic of states! We are NOT a democracy!

    Many of these issues should be left to the individual states..

    We should not govern by personal beliefs,, but rather law..

    The laws of the individual STATES should be what comes first.. Federal government SHOULD have very limited power...

    Ya dont like like that your state is anti abortion,,, or they refuse to purchase my .59 cent condoms,,, then move to another...

    Read the first 3 sentences of the Pledge of Allegience,, or what the heck recite the whole thing.. Ya do before every home game... ya ever consider what you are Pledging to??
    or are just waiting for the last sentence so you can yell yer damn fool head off!!

    [QUOTENow why am I confused??? All these folks are reading out of the same bible, right? So while I agree with you that “morals are morals”, how in hell am I to decide which ones are “poor morals][/QUOTE]

    Actually no,,,Mormons have the book of mormon and the Catholics have the catholic bible which is way different than the standard one most denominations and non denominations use. As far as morals ,,,most God respecting folks share many of the same. Just goes with the territory.
    John 5 :30
    I can of my own self do nothing ,as I hear , I judge,,and my judgement is just, because I seek not my own will,,but the will of the father which hath sent me
    John 7:16 -- Jesus answered them and said my doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me.
    mark 16:9 -- So then after the lord had spoken unto them,he was received up in heaven, and sat on the right hand of God
    I Tim. 2:5 --For there is one God and one mediator between God and man ,, the man Christ Jesus

    Pete, The Catholic church was the first Christian church and "their" bible has all the original parts that made up the book. Later Christian groups decided to omit parts that they did not agree should be part of their book.
