Re: Swim lessons, gun safety instructions ..

Swimming is different. We train young ones to be able to swim for 2 reasons. 1) to protect themselves from drowning and 2) for enjoyment. If we treat gun lessons the same as swim lessons, I fear the same motivations will be conveyed. That guns are for pleasure or protection. Both reasons are what fe...

Today [something] made me think... I agree that this could be good to a point - same as caring for the environment. However, these things too often take over the religious efforts of the people involved. There are far too many people whose religion is health or the environment. True. As Josh mentio...

This is a place to share those interesting little thoughts and questions that pop into your mind throughout the day, but aren't necessarily worth creating a full thread/ discussion for.

Hopefully folks will participate here. :)
