I agree with you. I can understand someone wanting to go in conjunction with psychiatric or psychological counselling.
if the guy i just wrote about had done this, i would have less of an issue with it. in this case, i think, the faith-based counselling would help him find additional ways to deal with the bi-polar. since he's a bit nutty (might be teh bi-polar, may just be a religious wacko, don't really know), i'd think that he needs what i'd call a "medically objective" therapy to help keep an eye on his disease.

I have a good friend, now in his mid 60's, who was brought up in a conservative Protestant home. He went to religious schools thru high school.He remains observant.

When he was going through a bad patch a number of years ago, he chose to go into therapy but it was important to him that he not worry about debating the existence of God with his therapist. He chose a person with both pastoral and therapeutic training and did very well

And, PE, he should be able to incorporate his faith/belief system into potential solutions if that's appropriate and fitting, and a therapist that fits that niche hopefully would be able to help him do that.

I just moved back to WI after 26 years away. I used to take great pains NOT to have the typical Manitowoc accent. Now, I am happily falling into it. I am running around sounding like I just escaped from the set of "Fargo" or Sarah Palin's campaign bus....
Just for the record:
1. If you want to visit someone, you "go by them."
2. You stop your car at "stop and go lights."
3. A drinking fountain is a "bubbler."
4. Youse guys is the same as y'all
5. If you order a "hot tamale," you will receive a sloppy joe sandwich.
6. "dat'll be good then" is an expression of approval
7. Vowel sounds in words like these (no, know, lake, boat, street, don't, etc...) ALL have 2 syllables.
8. The word sure is never drawn out and pronounced with a hard ch - "chur."
9. "doan'tcha know" is a fantastic sounding and useful phrase.
9. "And so?" is the proper way to turn any statement into a question. "Cripes, it is chur hot today. And so?"
Personally, I love it and I am embracing my inner cheesehead.

Anyone who posts here is putting their business out there for anyone to comment on. Want to keep it private? Send that person a private message. Oh, but then you'd have to become a real person & register on Topix. Couldn't have that now, could we?

In reality, I think you'll find most people here will ignore you.

I know, right? I'm getting to the point where I just scroll past some posters' remarks. They're not worth my valuable (to me, anyway) time.

:) We moved.
When he apologized -- I mean, what do you say? The only thing I said to his apology was "get help and stay out of my house". My son was seriously creeped out, as I was. He was just weird. It floored me that he tried to gain access again. It was the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. I remember that b/c I had a whole bunch of groceries to make the food I was bringing to my sister's house when I unlocked my door and his license fell out.
He was a big dude, too. Not fat, just tall and football playerish. His mom was normal, sort of, but thought being Christian solved everything. Well if religion solved everything all should be hunky-dory in the Mideast, right?
His dad was a 50 year old hippy who tried to act 20. I understand a 50 year old hippy -- they are out there, but not one trying to act like a teenager.
But I live far enough away from them now.
Glad you moved!

I think it was George Carlin who said "religious wars are all about who has the best imaginary friend". He had a point.
