Thank you Sean for addressing this promply. I am encouraged by your appreciation of the different points of view...no pun intended. Thanks Les, for bringing to light the intentions of the post which I have known from the beginning since I visit the chatroom also. It was distasteful to me that it was only meant to provoke people.

To have different moral standards from others is not narrow-minded.
To stand up for your moral standards is not narrow-minded.
But to assume that everyone else would be better off if they had the same moral standards as you do, is narrow-minded.
And, that cuts both ways.
Telling someone with a "closed" mindset that he would be better off "open" is narrow-minded.
Ole's post leaves does leave that open, so I am being redundant.
Personally, I think everyone would be better off with a nice old camera, a lot of film and a lot of time to shoot. When I was young, the first two were harder to come by...now it is the last part that I need.
