About me

Gender MALE
Location Midwest, United States
Introduction I consider myself a Christian in the broadest sense of the term, but no longer attend Church. I've found myself disaffected by the modern use of religion to find moral certainty -- which in turn is used to persecute those with whom they disapprove. I have two sons who have both been diagnosed in the autism spectrum.
Interests music, theology, spirituality, compassion, poetry
Favorite Movies A Perfect World, V for Vendetta, The Mission, The Princess Bride, Serenity
Favorite Music Patty Griffin, U2, Sting, Peter Gabriel, Kasey Chambers, Alison Krauss and Union Station
Favorite Books The Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Watchmen, God in Search of Man, The Miracle of Mindfulness, The Places that Scare You

If you were a pirate, how would you avoid laughing when saying "poop deck"?

Simple. I wouldn't avoid it. I'd laugh until I turned blue in the face and fell, well, possibly onto the poop deck.
