"Liam is correct and we have to be VERY careful not to adopt an intolerant attitude towards those who are religious, but just don't believe like we do.

"For the money, I would have to weigh in with a couple of guys who suggested nice, but comfortable loafers. Loafers work year round. Nice looking ones can be matched up with a pair of slacks and a tie for a dress up occassion."
