Hey team, this is some clarification and some IMHO.
I spoke to our Admin about religous discussion and also as it pertains to prostate cancer with this thread. The reason I proposed to take it offline to Marc was merely to not stir the masses but there was really no need to do so. This discussion is on topic for those who have to deal with treatment, side effects, and moving ahead, but struggle with how to in THEIR religous interpretation or environments. BillyMac is insightful in his references in this thread to not only the stimulation part but there is also a question about sex and procreation, and a moral position that the Catholic and other churches are "specifically vague" about. I personally attribute it to too little attention given and spoken about prostate cancer not only by churches in general, but our brothers as well. My conscience tells me that as long as discussion of this nature is who we are, and there is no attempts at "conversion" or or forcing ideals to other members then we are on topic to discuss it. This can be a divisive issue if we allow it to be. So please respect our differences and as War-Eagle Walt says, provide the understanding that this site is so strong in giving. Marc and I have leant each other our thoughts and I believe I can easily coexist with the thoughts all expressed in this thread.
My advice to anyone feeling this same lament is that you go with your conscience.
A note about the ill-advised reference to the 15 year old viewers I made.
We were experiencing some discussion that was sexually illicit when I posted that reference. In fact, it had nothing to do with an offended individual but in other areas of threads that were off topic. I made a post that included three separate issues that should have been referenced separately. Please forgive me, I am perfectly capable of those mistakes but I learn from them.
To all, please don't make me regret this post?!
