A man's compliment of a woman's gams is just creepy.

Why?  Is this a universal truth?  I'm confused.   ???

Try it and report back. Good luck, Mor.

Some of the sportier men can get away with it, because they can appreciate the 'work' part of working out. They're more likely to use terms like 'some sleek quads there', rather than 'shake that booty, babe'. ;)

LOL.  Far from it, but thanks.  :P 

True story.  When I was in college, I lived with a few guys, and one of their friends would swing by often.  He was the son of an Italian father and a Chinese mother (so he had a distinctive appearance), and he was a hardcore bodybuilding type (perhaps he used steroids, I don't know for sure like I did for the others), a great student, and the most lapsed SSPXer you ever met (he never even once entered a "modern" RC church until I broke the news to him that there was Mass in English...he did so only to prove to me that the Catholic Church "would never do something so stupid", and then came back horrified).  Quite a combination...a great guy.  Anyway, one day he interrupted my studying to ask me "Didn't St Paul say that our bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit?"  And I replied affirmatively.  So then he grabbed a bit of my belly fat and proclaimed "God doesn't want a chapel...", and then ripping off his shirt and flexing his very muscular muscles, he bellowed "HE WANTS A CATHEDRAL!!!"

I'm not likely to use either, I just appreciate beauty.  Usually I tell God about it to avoid uncomfortable situations.  ;)

Heard Christian Bale is Orthodox. Can anyone confirm? And for Max Cavalera.

http://hollowverse.com/christian-bale/

Bale’s upbringing was admittedly non-religious. He once said:

I always pictured Jesus as Neil Diamond when I was younger. My upbringing was not a religious one, but an inquisitive one. My father was best friends with the bishop and fascinated by religion. I would come back from church, and my dad would put on Neil Diamond. So, I would always picture Neil Diamond with a big white beard, standing in a tunic and preaching to masses of people… I do go to church on occasion, but I don’t adhere to any particular religion. His [Jesus'] basic message of encompassing all people was a great one.1

My guess is that if he had to say, he’d identify with Catholic–the largest denomination in Wales. Plus, his father was best friends with a bishop–a Catholic designation.

Thanks. :)

If you cannot remember everything, instead of everything, I beg you, remember this without fail, that not to share our own wealth with the poor is theft from the poor and deprivation of their means of life; we do not possess our own wealth but theirs.  If we have this attitude, we will certainly offer our money; and by nourishing Christ in poverty here and laying up great profit hereafter, we will be able to attain the good things which are to come. - St. John Chrysostom

Martyr YEVGENY RODIONOV
I think his martyrdom is wellknown not only in Orthodox church in Japan.

I've not heard that. Last I heard he was Baptist or something. When did this happen?
God bless!
