" Nice khakis Brown shoes Nice jeans (beware of fake wear...) A few polos A few solid color button up shirts A tie that will go with most of your button up shirts A nice belt (for Pete's sake not Walmart belts...) That would be my two cents"

cost prohibitive?

Good afternoon folks. Well, the title is a huge clue about this post. As it currently stands, I am a stay at home father of one, being unable to work due to immigration restrictions. I want to become a Freemason, but I do fear it may be cost prohibitive. Could someone advise me on this, as to whether i am wrong, or as to how one could get around this issue?See More

Moral relativism

I like to post my answers in a thread, to our topical discussions; so I'll put my thoughts here, and invite others to do the same.  The topic, I believe, is moral relativism.The part I want to comment on right now is Dallas's comment, "Why does a moral law giver have to be God?"  It's worth answering, at least partlyPeople can give moral laws without being God.  The question is, are they the right moral laws.  I say it's wrong to kill people for being Jewish, Herr Hitler said it was right --…See More
