"I'm sorry to hear that. I've had a few friends with recent losses of their grandfathers (happens at about our age) that said the same thing. May yours also rest in peace."

Charles John Sheahan, 1926-2015

Charles John Sheahan, 1926-2015(Note: My grandfather passed away on May 5 and we buried him on May 12. The following is what I posted to Facebook for my brothers and cousins. My dad read a large portion of it for the eulogy. I thought some of you would enjoy my tribute to the man in my life who best exemplified the ideal of being good at being a man and also being a very good man.)The Puritan divine Edmund Barker wrote, “Every Christian hath two great works to do in the world, to live well, and…See More

"He also makes the statement in his forward that "Men of all ages and in all parts of the world are more violent than women." - Sadly that is so wrong. Of course, what is empirical data in the face of feminist-bs? Nothing but a cricket…"

"In some countries (UK I think) the burden would fall on the victim, in the US if someone is past the point of consent the burden of not engaging in sex falls on the other person/s. Someone can correct me if I'm wrong."

"Yes! And staying a few paces away is less worrying too. I'll frequently offer other women help than have them worrying about a/the men who might offer it, especially if they have kids."

Quote
“The love of liberty loses none of its intensity. In the true manly heart it burns deeper and clearer with age, but it burns to enlighten and to warm, not to consume.” – Orestes Brownson

"When I fancied that I stood alone I was really in the ridiculous position of being backed up by all Christendom." – GK Chesterton

"I did try to found a heresy of my own; and when I had put the last touches to it, I discovered that it was orthodoxy." – GK Chesterton

"To complain that I could only be married once was like complaining that I had only been born once. It was incommensurate with the terrible excitement of which one was talking. It showed, not an exaggerated sensibility to sex, but a curious insensibility to it." – GK Chesterton

"Do you see this lantern?" cried Syme in a terrible voice. "Do you see the cross carved on it and the flame inside? You did not make it. You did not light it. Better men than you, men who could believe and obey, twisted the entrails of iron and preserved the legend of fire. There is not a street you walk on, there is not a thread you wear, that was not made as this lantern was, by denying your philosophy of dirt and rats. You can make nothing. You can only destroy." - GK Chesterton

"Swords!" shouted Syme, turning his flaming face to the three behind him. "Let us charge these dogs, for our time has come to die." – GK Chesterton

"[W]hen he found that he had to wear a sword, it stirred a boyish dream. As he passed out of the room...he had all the swagger of a troubadour. For these disguises did not disguise, but reveal." – GK Chesterton

"Where there are no oxen, the manger is clean, but abundant crops come by the strength of the ox." – Proverbs 14:4

"Manliness seeks and welcomes drama and prefers times of war, conflict, and risk. Manliness brings change or restores order at moments when routine is not enough, when the plan fails, when the whole idea of rational control by modern science develops leaks. Manliness is the next-to-last resort, before resignation and prayer." – Harvey Mansfield

Has AOM jumped the shark or is it's just cyclical

There is nothing political or religious about this topic but let's face it, unless I'm discussing going shirtless or masterbating, there isn't too many active groups at the moment. I thought it would be a rude headline for the front page though. So here it is, on Herb's biblical paradigm/TGD. At least I think it is. You can't comment on the group's main page anymore and the feed doesn't show on the community main page either anymore (or does it again now?) so who knows, maybe no one can read…See More
