My wife and I are considering adoption. She's always wanted to adopt, and it had never been a thought of mine until I met her. Now that we've been married three years, I'm getting to the point of…Continue

Steve C replied to Nathan DeParis's discussion Man Mints
"Does it have to have manly flavors, like motor oil or steak? I don't know of any mints that have such awesomeness in them."

Steve C replied to Chris Hamm's discussion Who Wears a Watch Anymore?
"I'm wearing one now.  It allows my phone to stay in my pocket.  It's just nice to have the time on your wrist."

Steve C replied to Dustin Snider's discussion Best Way To Get Into Wood-Working?
"My first thought was, "Jump in!" But, to flesh it out, I would say that the best way to learn it to do it.  I would not suggest quitting a job right away, but start a few projects that will challenge you, and, if you do it well, could…"

Steve C replied to Nate Thallas's discussion Looking for input on a new set of wheels
"I can't say I like any of those.  The one time I drove a Liberty, the seats were atrocious.  Absolutely uncomfortable.   I know this isn't on your list, but our 2004 Subaru Forester has been great.  It's at ~130k…"

Steve C replied to Rick Shelton's discussion Does anyone work on their cars/truck/SUV anymore?
"If you want a forum where half the users seem to be able to swap a hemi into an original Mini, and, in general, are mechanical heroes, look no further than grassrootsmotorsports.com.  I mostly read around on it, but my mechanical knowledge (and…"

"Yes."

Samuel Chapman replied to Steve C's discussion Habemus Papam! in the group Catholic Men
"These attitudes are always prevalent and, to me, inexplicable. The Anglican church has taken the path of ordaining women and several other of these policies that liberals feel churches ought to take. The end result has neither been effective nor…"

Nick H replied to Steve C's discussion Habemus Papam! in the group Catholic Men
"Considering most if not all Cardinals have been hand picked by Benedict or JPII, I'd be surprised if there was one in there supporting Liberation Theology."

Nathan DeParis replied to Steve C's discussion Habemus Papam! in the group Catholic Men
"I actually was pleasantly surprised by his orthodoxy. It is nice to have a Jesuit because he has experience in taking the gospel to a worldly audience. I think we do need that now. Pope emeritus was more introverted, but Pope Francis is a lot more…"

Vytautas replied to Steve C's discussion Habemus Papam! in the group Catholic Men
"I don't think "enthralled" is accurate in terms of the media's supposed "obsession" with this. First, that a moral and religious leader would balk before a very evil regime is a legitimate concern and should be…"

Native Son replied to Steve C's discussion Habemus Papam! in the group Catholic Men
"I spoke more of the folks (identified in the mainstream press as Catholic) who immediately began to condemn Francis because he didn't immediately take actions friendly to their personl agendas.  Specifically, and this started showing…"

Mike M. replied to Steve C's discussion Habemus Papam! in the group Catholic Men
"FWIW, he didn't renew the appointments of the curia members, which is usually done right away.  I don't want to make any outlandish predictions about a drastic house cleaning, but it seems reasonable to think that he's reviewing…"

Mike M. replied to Steve C's discussion Habemus Papam! in the group Catholic Men
"While he's undoubtedly focused on justice for the disadvantaged (as we should all be,) so far, I'm seeing a Pope whose primary focus is on the Cross (as ours should be.)"
Mar 15, 2013
Mike M. replied to Steve C's discussion Habemus Papam! in the group Catholic Men
"As far as I can tell, they're basing the "Dirty Wars" story on rumors that originated with members of a murderous communist regime who had no love for Bergoglio.  If their stories came with any evidence, I'd certainly…"

Mike M. replied to Steve C's discussion Habemus Papam! in the group Catholic Men
"I suppose I didn't really explain myself before.  It's not so much about the EF for its own sake.  Pope Benedict never indicated that he wanted the EF to replace the ordinary form.  He did, however, talk of mutual…"

Mike M. replied to Steve C's discussion Habemus Papam! in the group Catholic Men
"You think that there are things that override the importance of leading people to Christ?  Most people do... those people are not Christians. As for Francis being a Jesuit, he wasn't exactly one of the cool kids in the order.  He was…"

Shane replied to Leto Atreides II's discussion Ferguson Grand Jury Decision in the group The Great Debate
"There's a continuum of force, and cops are authorized to use one level above a perpetrators level in an assault. So if an offender is using fists, you're allowed a baton. If an offender is using a blunt I object as a weapon (intending…"

Leto Atreides II replied to Leto Atreides II's discussion Ferguson Grand Jury Decision in the group The Great Debate
"The problem with your question is that (in this case) you're asking a police officer to judge the intent of someone who had already committed a felony to determine the severity of the threat. Brown had ample opportunity to not die. He chose to…"

Edward Warden replied to Travis Spuhler's discussion Greatest movie speech/monologue in the group Film

Curtis replied to Leto Atreides II's discussion Ferguson Grand Jury Decision in the group The Great Debate
"JB, I can appreciate all of that, but surely a line must be drawn somewhere...or is any level of threat or assault punishable in the same way?  The threat of a black eye or fisticuffs is not a good enough reason to legitimize the…"

Edward Warden replied to Patrick H.'s discussion Rowing
"I put rowing -- but on a machine -- back into my upper-body workouts a few months, ago, and am really enjoying it.  I count it as cardio rather than strength, and I've heard that it's a better cardio workout than an elliptical or a…"
