Personal Interests

The following sites reflect my hobbies, interests, work, etc. This page is entirely based on me, personally, and may or may not represent the interests of my parents, church, or anyone else for that matter! [William D. Peckenpaugh]


General interest

Clothing optional recreation (aka social naturism/nudism)

Nudism/naturism is a family way of life!

Christian Nudism

If God meant for us to go nude, we'd be born that way ...

A brief quote
"Sexual modesty cannot then in any simple way
be identified with the use of clothing, nor shamelessness
with the absence of clothing and total or partial nakedness.
There are circumstances in which nakedness is not immodest...
Nakedness as such is not to be equated with physical
shamelessness. Immodesty is present only when nakedness
plays a negative role with regard to the value of the person...
The human body is not in itself shameful, nor for the same reasons
are sensual reactions, and human sensuality in general.
Shamelessness (just like shame and modesty) is a function
of the interior of a person."
Pope John Paul II (nee Karol Cardinal Wojtyla)
[in "Love & Responsibility," 1981]

Family/Social Nudism

Routine, non-medical infant circumcision

A quote:
"His followers said to him, 'Is circumcision useful or not?'
He said to them, 'If it were useful, children's fathers would produce them already circumcised from their mothers. Rather, the true circumcision in spirit has become valuable in every respect.'"
--Jesus, in the [apocryphal] Gospel of Thomas, 53.
