I grew up in an incredibly strict Baptist home. At the time I did not find it overbearing...most of the time. 9 years ago I joined the military, after being around the world and out of the bubble I…Continue

Hello gents, my name is Samuel LaPorte. I have interest in becoming a freemason however I am unsure if I can due to my Wiccan affiliation. Can anyone shed some light on this situation for me?

I wrote a small Jewish sharing. I would be honored to hear from people of other faiths and read what you think. The url is:

Greeting from the UK folks!I discovered AoM a few months ago, and have only recently joined discussions. Going through a few pages though I was kind of alarmed at some of the heavily anti Islamic comments I read.
What strikes me most though is that many people seem to have very different and - I would say - twisted viewpoints on the religion I love and follow.

Paul II
Trashing other people's faiths is almost ALWAYS based on pure ignorance. Anything leading someone to live a kinder and better life is worthy.

One of my Budo (AKA Martial Arts) instructors taught us to recite every training session, "I will do no wrong, nor through my inaction will I permit wrong to be done." That is a philosophy that would be hard to dispute.

I was raised as a Baptist, with some strong input from my Methodist father. I am now a member of the LDS church. As a 23 year member of the U.S. Army, I was exposed to several non-Christian faiths in their natural home settings, As a martial artist I was specifically exposed to the Buddhist, Shinto, and Taoist world views. I learned from all these sources, and have harmonized then in my own mind.

I take serious objection to anyone trying to 'put down' another faith. For the last seven or eight years I have been an active member of a ministerial alliance of twenty-one (more or less) Christian denominations. We sometimes disagree over minor points, but it has never gotten in the way of friendships, nor community service.

Hi, Ken I like the notion. Somehow we all have got to come together.
Comment by Paul on August 28, 2010 at 12:26pm
Awesome idea. I am tired of reading these garbage topics about how other religions are wrong, bad, etc. As if everything is a competition...

Bravo, Ken.

college:problem with procrastination

Hello everyone, I have a very big problem, I miss 5 exams to graduate. I am two years out of the course, so I'm late. The problem is that I relaxed too much and ultimately, the procrastinating - it was my enemy. In the morning, I wake with good intentions, but with facebook, twitter, skype ... I lose hours doing nothing. Then a friend calls me: "Ok, I will study tomorrow." I can not find the right concentration. I have the following questions: 1 How can I better organize the study and then find…See More
