Good to see the art of letter writing is not lost in New Bern

im not saying to conform or water down what you believe. just expect lots of treadmill talks.

Oh I fully understand and expect as much.

Regardless of the subject matter how exactly where these people wronged?

What if some one stopped you in the supermarket and told you something in your cart was very bad for you? Would you be wronged? Maybe its none of their business you say... but maybe you won't admit that you need help and you need to stop eating those twinkies. Maybe their word would stop and make you think yeah I should put this back.. Unfortunatly most people let their pride take over and puff out their chest and well you know the rest.

Would you feel the same way if you were outta gas and someone stopped to help you?

The person who is over weight and cramming twinkies needs help and people can see it.

The person who needs gas needs help and people can see it.

So if I tell someone they should stop eating twinkies thats bad

but

If I help somone who needs gas thats good WHAT?

All I am saying is that to a christian he was only trying to help.

He didn't jump up on the table in his restaurant and start denouncing these women. He did it as privately as he could given the situation.

I wouldn't tell the overwieght fellow loud enough for all to hear HEY FATTTY YOUR BUTT NEEDS TO TOP EATING THOSE TWINKIES!

lol you guys you get me riled up in the best kind of way. Its like my own personal revival!

i agree with cwg on this type thing. live and let live. but to do that, you have to be able to, here it is, tolerate, the other person, no matter how polar opposite of your views they may have.

thats my point.

so instead of either camp getting self righteous, take the high road and be able to navigate beyond the fray and befriend that person who is totally not like you. find some common ground. throwing up your hands or sending them some insane letter, after they paid mind you, is both equally foolish.

pstall have you ever studied psychology? have you ever known someone who is a psychologist? specializes in adult behavior? have they had clients or couples or w/e that are like the people you describe?

it's obvious you don't. otherwise you wouldn't keep perpetuating this myth of beer summits actually doing a goddamn thing in 99% of these cases. ffs just stop posting.

and yet having an inordinate amount of posting about something changes it? perhaps you should seek some counseling.

and why the defeatist attitude? wheres your guts, your optimism your idealism?

if you think nobody can be met halfway about anything, why bother posting? why have threads asking about if somebody has ever changed via a message board?

the greatest impact always happens offline.

why do you always beat this drum about getting off the computer and talk face to face when you have 13k posts on this messageboard?

i have friends who are psychologists who have published books. not guys who write a blog or post on boards. they actually have gone to New York and spoke face to face with someone who took their ideas and made into a book.

what's interesting is the fear of sitting down with someone. the reason is maybe some are clinging to their misconceptions or biases and its so comfy, like a snuggy, that to come out of your comfort zone is debilitating.
