“Ten was their best album ever. I am not happy with their evolution into a "jam band" but they still put out good music. First time I saw the "Alive" video was on Headbangers Ball on MTV, which I think is funny:)”

“Agreed! I don't get the co-sleeping thing at all. I was petrified we would have rolled over my daughter an smothered her. Just wasn't worth the risk. She slept in a bassinet in our room for 5 1/2 months. We are plenty "bonded."

I asked my European mom about co-sleeping and she said she didn't know anyone who did it so I have to ask, what part of the world is this supposedly so prevalent?”

“It's not the responsibility of every infertile woman to adopt. Adoption is beautiful but it isn't without complications. Give her a break. Her desire to conceive is a natural one.”

Tiredofallthecrap on Sep 16, 2013 at 18:29:12

“I never said it was her "responsibility" to adopt. But if she has such desires and cannot conceive, this is an option. This comment was not just made to her either. Adoptions can be complicated as far as paperwork goes, but most celebrities have NO problems. Any other complications can happen even if it is your on conceived child. I just don't think this is something that should have come out. I would think one would have more pride in one's self to keep this a private family matter. IMO, this is a ratings grab, but thats my opinion.”

“This is a really silly argument. I am not crazy about princess-themed stuff but a lot of little girls are. Probably lots of little girls like both Star Wars and princess stuff too. I get sick of all this gender neutral stuff. If you want to be a girly girl, then what's wrong with that? If you don't, that's fine too. Clothes don't define a child.

As a child, I loved all things girly while also kicking the tails of the boys too. As long as my daughter knows that being a princess isn't a career, I am not worrying about it.”

“When you become a parent, you don't back out on your responsibilities to be there for your kids. Get a therapist if your "self hatred" is that bad.”

GeorgeBurnsWasRight on Jul 25, 2013 at 13:38:00

“"Get a therapist if your "self hatred" is that bad."

When you're as enmeshed in the Evangelical culture as he was, he probably would go to a Christian therapist who would even today likely tell him he could choose to be straight and further mess up his mind. In 1991 that outcome would have been almost certain, resulting in a significant chance that he would have eventually killed himself, almost as bad a thing for his family as his disappearing was.

I'm not at all defending his choice, but we've all made mistakes, both major and minor. The best we can do is learn from our own mistakes and those of others, and try to repair the injuries we've caused. (I'd need a lot more information to have an opinion as to whether contacting his family again after 16 years was yet another bad choice. IMO, it would depend upon the impact of the renewed contact on his family.)”

Elisha Dasenbrock on Jul 25, 2013 at 14:20:30

“With both of my parents dead, I can safely say, if either of them turned up I would never hesitate to forgive them. I would want to understand the pain behind such a decision, but I would be so grateful for their return. Maybe I'd be mad after the relief came back, but we'd work through it. I didn't know my dad, but my mom and I did not have a good relationship and I would still be happy she was alive and safe and back.”

“I'm sure the $850,000 helped a lot on taking care of those children.”

Andrew Clayton on Jul 25, 2013 at 20:22:28

“None of use truly know what pain this man was in at the time of his disappearance. I've been caught in a web of depression and self loathing due to me being gay and trapped in a marriage with children (who I love dearly) wanting to do right by them and honour my commitment and faith. In some respects, I know I am probably still on this earth because of my children. Putting myself in his shoes for a minute, no I hopefully wouldn't have made the same choice as he did, though recognise that I certainly considered ending it all. I ended up going down the divorce route and now co-share my children. All actions have consequences, and probably facing those consequences and the judgement of others may well have kept him away. Now that he has made the choice to return, there are new consequences which he will need to front up to, including rebuilding relationships and dealing to financial consequences of his family claiming the insurance. I agree there may well be more to this tale than we know. I say now instead of condemning him, encourage him to make his amends and put things to rights.”

suvariboy on Jul 25, 2013 at 16:53:17

“I agree that what he did was the height of selfishness but I've seen many evangelicals go off of the deep end one way or another. I'm not condoning his actions, I'm merely stating that many of them push themselves to try and live extraordinary lives and eventually it catches up with them. I saw his eldest daughter on the news. Her whole life she thought she'd done something wrong, that he left because she wasn't good enough. My story was the exact opposite - I always wished my father would go away and never come back. He didn't. Instead he constantly reminded me what an abject failure he thought I was and that he wished my next door neighbor's son was his son instead of me. Whether they stay or go, sometimes some people just aren't good parents.”

irish23 on Jul 25, 2013 at 15:30:33

“It may be, but the kind of shame that is brought to bear by Christians on gay people can be excrcuciatingly crippling - so much so that they do things they wouldn't otherwise do, such as abandon their family. His wife did call him the antichrist, which wouldn't make me eager to go back to her. What he did was wrong but the family/church/relatives had a part in this, too and need to look at what their shaming of gays does to people.”
