Here's the latest buzz...

How do you think stars like Britney Spears, Jessica Simpson and Nick Lahey (who seem to package sex as part of their image) can reconcile their faith with what they do for a living. I mean, isn't promoting lust a "sin"? Are they good Christian role models or hypocrites? Do you look up to them or wish that they would stop using their religion as "good press".

I've told a lot of people that what they were feeling for someone else was just a crush or an infatuation. Now I'm in a situation similar to theirs - I have very strong feelings for a person, and I think it might be love. Or is it? Should I tell myself what I told them?

Wasn't sure if I should put this question in this folder, but what the hell. I don't really know how to put this in a simple, understandable way but I fear guys. Not all guys, but I fear being taken advantage of. I live in Ohio, and my boyfriend who I've been with for a year lives in New York. Yes, long distance relationship. Anyway he came in town and I am in constant fear of seeing him.

I am a straight, white male. Already people hate me. Why? because I am not black so Jessie Jackson hates me. I am not gay so Gay rights activists hate me. I am a guy so womens rights activists hate me. Worst of all, I am a Christian so the other straight white males hate me. The majority now has no rights at all. I think it pathetic that you can have freedom of speech, if you are a minority, or you are gay or woman. I am not racist, even though I don't like Jesse Jackson. I may be a homophobe or whatever the hell people call them. I do not agree with any type of homosexuality. If I know a person is gay, not if I think, but if I KNOW a person is gay, I try not to have anything to do with them. So hate me all you want to. I am a Christian, Straight, white male.

IMy best friends boyfriend has a little bit of a temper. He has grabbed her forcefully be the arm and yelled at her. Just last sunday they got in a fight and he grabbed her and pinned her up against her car and yelled in her face....she did not tell me this directly she told someone and I guess she was afraid to tell me or soemthing? She had started to but then she didn't and said she didn't what to talk about it and she didn't want to tell me. She said that he told her "you better not fucking tell anyone about this" and I'm worried but I can't say anything to her about it beacuse she doesn't know that I know. Is there ANYTHING I could or should do to help or should I just hang back and if anything else happens then I should say something? Please help...any info welcome.

Everyday I tell myself that I am going to lose some weight. When I get home, I'm ready to do something about it, but I never do anything. My friends that I talk to tell me that I have no self confidence. I think it's true because I always put myself down. I really don't have a reason to, it just happens. I can't talk to girls because I'm worried about what they'll think of me, I most often avoid any social events (i.e. dances, parties). I'm about 5' 11" and I weigh about 225.

That seems to be the question that runs through everybody's mind.
To me a true friend is a person that doesn't judge you for your actions and is their for you through bad and good times. Alot of people take advantage of there "FRIENDS", it makes me sick!! I know I always hear from different people that their friends turn there back on them, why call someone like that a friend. I have this friend that tries too hard to fit in with whatever is cool at the time. He's the type of friend that you can only handle so much, then you go your different ways for awhile. It makes me wonder if he see's what he's doing to himself and others. I've made a big mistake with one of my best friends one time. I couldn't get over the fact that I could have done something like to my best friend that has been their for me in the worst times and stuck by my side. But I told him what I had done, don't get me wrong it was hard but I did what I thought was right. Now are friendship is stronger than ever. So make friends wisely......
