FYI - today is a day of prayer and penance

Post by Rochin54 on Thu Jan 22, 2009 8:06 am

As January 22 is the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, today is to observed as a day of prayer and penance. This is perhaps especially important today given President Obama's support for the Freedom of Coice Act. If you are interested, this brief web page has a good synopsis of today as a day for prayer and penance, as well as an excerpt from Joh Paul II's Evangelium Vitae, explaining why prayer and penance are good practices.

Thanks, but I still prefer that this site be reserved for Pilot sports.

Point taken. I use the "posts since last visit" function, so I often don't even pay attention to the categories.

I just would really like to have one place were politics doesn't intrude. I have strong political opinions, and I would rather enjoy discussing Pilots sports without having to react to other people's equally strong opinions.

I think any sane discussion is okay for the "General Discussion" category... thats why we put it here... to keep the rest of the forum free from non-sports topics.

You mean like beer drinking, sham-wows and snuggies, and all the other things we veer into? Laughing

Pilot Nut does an alarm go off in your house when these things post?

The [ img] feature isn't broken. Some servers don't allow you to link pictures or other media directly so they can keep their traffic down. once they sense that multiple hits for a picture are coming from the same source, they shut down. You might get a picture the first few times, but then you'll just get your code. Some sites will even notify you to host the image yourself.

You have to host the picture yourself with the "host an Image" feature and link to it.

I've been burned by this a couple of times.

I'm gonna have to say that any sane discussion can take place on the General Discussion board. Sometimes, nay oftentimes, there are topics that I would like to discuss with friends (like how to deal with a crazy uncle or something Razz ) , and because I have none, I turn to my internet friends Very Happy

But seriously, I think the general discussion board is a really cool deal. And generally, I would say everyone on here is pretty sane about posting around "sensitive" issues.

Odd that we see the Batsignal under a prayer and penance thread. Well I guess its these loosely related connections that keep things interesting.
