One of the hardest things to do when you’re a religious person is step outside the orthodoxy, but here are a couple responses to that from people inside the faith.

On a somewhat similar note, Jon Acuff at Stuff Christians Like points out that Christians have an unhealthy attitude about getting post-marital counseling (“What went wrong? Was it porn? I bet it was porn. It was probably him.”) — and he gently lets them know, by sharing his own experience with it, that it can actually be a good idea:
Nice to see a couple religious people pointing out that you don’t have to follow the crowd all of the time.
