Pipe Smoking as Decent

Back before fundamentalism caused much of American Christianity to go off the moral deep end and get caught in up in a fevered attempt to demonize a whole series of behaviors that are morally neutral, pipe smoking was seen as a very decent and proper thing for a theologian (& anyone else) to do. In many Christian communities which successfully fought off the tendency to condemn everything, pipe smoking has always and continues to be appreciated for the benefits it brings to moments of relaxation, conversation, and mental clarity. –James Stambaugh

    I have not done this for myself but I’ve been told by friends that it can be really beneficial. A whole lot of things are a lot better about the world today. Do you ever use citations in your work? It would be great to read about what you read. Be sure your content is easy to read and understand.
