Mike B replied to Tomas GF's discussion Meditation and Christianity in the group Christian Men
"You are right in the sense that Christian meditation is focused on the Lord, not on the human "self." While we do have to "be still" and know that He is Lord (the Psalms esp. teach this), the world confuses the techniques of…"

Mike B replied to Will's discussion Obamacare as it stands in the group The Great Debate
"Why does any Christian support Obamacare? It mandates abortion coverage. Now, many Protestants base their faith and moral lives on Scripture alone. Scripture is silent on abortifacients; in fact, it might even be a stretch to equate abortion with…"

Mike B replied to Andrew's discussion Straight Man's Guide to losing your gay friend
"As I understand it, SSA is a simple description of one's predominant/only sexual attraction, often used in lieu of "gay"--which to most has come to mean "out and proud" and/or supportive of a certain agenda. As for gay (and…"

Native Son replied to Native Son's discussion Ukraine. in the group The Great Debate
"Apparently the routing was simply because it was a shorter distance, and therefore less expensive to fly.  I've seen reporting that the FAA prohibited that particular airway to US airlines back in April, on a "just in case" basis."

Daniel Rodriguez replied to Daniel's discussion Decorating my apartment medieval style?
"Nothing wrong there, but yes, antique shops. Chests instead of Metal Footlockers, wooden tables out of planks than metal and glass, the like. Browns and reds come into mind as the primary colours. "
