7. Clean jokes only.  If it is not PG rated, don't post it.  If in doubt, ask yourself "Would Mor Ephrem post this?"  If the answer is yes, post it, if the answer is no, he would not descend to such impiety, then do not post it.
I have actually done this once. I'll say things much lower than Mor on a daily basis, but if I need to clean up without losing irreverence, he's a good reference.

One could begin to think, after one had read enough recent posts, and if one were uncharitable, that Mr. Fogey's religion is mainly himself.

Well, if I look like Milhouse Van Houten trapped in a Raymond Chandler novel I'd worship myself too.

Best thing would be to crop out the cardinal. Crop like it's 1054.

I don't want to live in a world where God let's babies get cancer, but it seems I don't have a choice in the matter.
If anything I have posted has been illuminating, please remember that I merely reflect the light of others...but also it's me.

My autistic kid is the one who didn't get vaccines until way late.

Wait, so you're saying vaccines cause autism retroactively, actually distorting time itself? That's even more nefarious than I could have imagined.
Is that what they teach you at the temple volnutt-stein?

Actually, it's Volnutt-berg.

Rome doesn't care. Rome is actually very cool guy.

Is he even going to have a discussion on the forum or did he just show up to make a few long posts?
But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.
Leviticus 19:34

"I decontaminated the notion of premarital sex. That gives me great satisfaction.” -Hugh Hefner

"In the 1950s and '60s, there were still states that outlawed birth control, so I started funding court cases to challenge that. At the same time, I helped sponsor the lower-court cases that eventually led to Roe v. Wade. We were the amicus curiae in Roe v. Wade.” - Hugh Hefner

“My parents didn’t show me much love or affection. My iconoclasm was a rebellion against my repressive and puritan upbringing.” - Hugh Hefner



Parents, love your children. Hug them, kiss them, praise them, give them an abundance of positive attention. This is what can happen if you don't.

It's difficult for me to think of anyone who has had a more detrimental impact on society. He seemed like an empty, sad, hollow shell of a human being.

May God have mercy on his soul.

Dude, I didn’t ask for driving tips.  I’ve been driving for a long time now, and my sister is a grown adult woman with experience behind the wheel.

I asked a very simple question.
