walking nude on public trails

Postby thomas » Sun May 20, 2012 12:50 pm

hi,

our group (15 people, mostly families with children) walk in th nude on public trails in the moutains - we think that it's very confortable- our body us exposed to the sun und the nature-

sometimes we meet clothed people on the trails - the discussion is about the naturist way of live - we explain why we are naturist and excited the curiosity.
what do you think about this?

I think it's great, Thomas. It's nice to know the clothed people accept nudity and inquire about it. I noticed in a previous post you said there are 2 million nudists in France. I think it is great.

Sounds like a wonderful way to hike.

I know a guy who spent time in prison for walking nude on a public trail here in National Forest land.
I would like to praise France for their better attitude about the body.

Thomas,

Is it legal to be nude on public trails where you are in France?

As Christians, we are to submit to the laws of the government (as long as they do not overstep God's Laws), since God ordains governements. We are to be model citizens (See Romans 13).

What has been the general reactions of the textiles you have encountered on the trails?
SON-cerely,

"Submit to" and "obey" are not necessarily the same thing.

Not sure how they are different. Please explain.

When the apostles were told not to witness to the name of Jesus, they did not obey. When they were then arrested for their disobedience they submitted to the authorities. In modern times some women have been counseled to obey their unbelieving husbands in committing sin. Submission has more to do with accepting the right of the one being submitted to to inflict penalties for a lack of obedience. Civil disobedience generally involves submission to the authorities when they arrest, and then try a person, or persons. One acknowledges their right to impose their will in enforcing a law or command that one believes to be wrong, or unjust. If you disobeyed, then did not stick around to face the consequences, that would not be submission.

Thank you for the clarification.

what do you think about this?


If you hike nude in the Apenzell of Switzerland, you not only violate canton law, but offend the citizens.
This is not just about the nudity but about aggressive Germans imposing their will on a neighbor country, just as was done in the last century.
The Deutschland über alle attitude that typifies the Reich remains intact, long after the outward destruction of the regime.
I am not saying that Apenzellers cannot learn to incorporate body freedom into their very traditional culture, but the effort to introduce this must be done over a long period of time and with a great deal of sensitivity to their folk ways.

If these walks are done in Germany, then it is a very different matter and much good can be accomplished.
West Germans have in large part lost much of the Nacktkultur that was common in other years and they tried to impose their newfound prudishness on the North Sea beaches in the former East Germany.

Much social change begins with teens and young adults and we can expect that this is Germany's best hope of bringing back

What a great sense of freedom that must be to walk in the countryside, one with nature!

Ramblinman, I just wonder where your essay about Appenzell and Germany comes from? Did you have a private revelation? The original statement of Thomas contains nothing you talk about. I've been for a short time in a German FKK Forum and in fact, you find reports about such open nude hikes in Germany and Appenzell. But those in Switzerland are organized by a real, native Appenzeller. :D
I abandoned German Forums because there seems to be no place for Christian themes, it's about FFK only and that gets quickly boring. I don't agree with your Reich- statement from my experience. I'd rather say we had an inferiority complex for a long time. In the 3. Reich nudism was absolutely banned and nudists ended up in concentration camps. No good idea to bring together naturist hikes with German aggression in my opinion.
