Actually, I reported the thread to the moderator. Not because I think anything terrible or unChristian is going on, but just because Matthew is obviously sensitive on this issue, and I think the jocularity going on in this thread should be taking place somewhere else. What would a visitor think if they happened upon this thread, and saw the concern of Matthew for his friends, and then almost all the responses were unrelated jokes? Perhaps Matthew should have put it in a Prayer thread to begin with, but the issue he brought up was not just one of requesting prayer, but also one of pastoral and theological importance. This website has come up before, and I think it's as funny as the next guy; I just don't think that this is the thread for it.
