      Turns out I'm not the only one who knows my Bible*--

      *And, yes, I know quite well that the vast majority of American Christians reject this guy--the point is that they are in fact rejecting biblical teaching/morality when they do, Sean Glazier -- because there is no objective morality--

      Deuteronomy 21:18–21 expands on the law:

      If any man has a stubborn and rebellious son who will not obey his father or his mother, and when they chastise him, he will not even listen to them, then his father and mother shall seize him, and bring him out to the elders of his city at the gateway of his home town. And they shall say to the elders of his city, “This son of ours is stubborn and rebellious, he will not obey us, he is a glutton and a drunkard.” Then all the men of his city shall stone him to death; so you shall remove the evil from your midst, and all Israel shall hear of it and fear.

          Related to the bit from my Nogodblog post of three years ago (pre-Trump, of course) that I just reposted is this revealing story published in New York and then here in The Guardian (no pay wall)--

              I have been (and will continue to be) engaged in a Yabberz debate with Sean Glazier regarding atheism vs. Christianity and related matters. Pretty much none of what he or I have claimed is new or original with either of us, but I will be continuing some posts on it and so, I think, will he.

              Related in some ways to the Glazier-Buckner discussion is one I had about three years ago (also on Yabberz) that may be of interest to him or others. Here's a link to a blog post I made on that earlier discussion--

                  It is the season that Christians celebrate, at least traditionally, the birth of their savior Jesus. Many non-Christians--and to be fair, many among more sophisticated Christians as well--know that most or all of the hoopla is not at all factual or historical. The details are pretty well known to many and have been laid out with care before (by fine authors like Dan Barker and David Fitzgerald, for example), but here is the latest clear exposition by another wise and effective writer, Valerie Tarico.

                  This is worth not only reading but also passing along to any of the less gracious Christians you may know--the ones who hotly declare that atheists and other non-Christians should be quiet and acknowledge that "Jesus is the reason for the season." (He is for many believing Christians, of course, but the festivities this time of year for many, many people have nothing to do with Jesus and preceded Christianity anyway.)

                      I am not a violent person. I abhor violence, it sickens and disgusts me and makes me feel all sorts of awful just thinking about it. I wish violence was massively reduced around the world.


                      However, I will defend myself and people I care about, and anyone else if the situation presents itself, with only the least force necessary to prevent further harm, always with an eye to de-escalation and containment and preventing the bad dangerous situations from happening in the first place.


                      I prefer less lethal weapons, OC spray, batons, electric shock, but if need be, I think I am more than capable of handling a lethal weapon, and employing it as a last resort.


                      I went with my brother to a shooting range today, cause I had never fired a pistol before, and I wanted to.


                      Turns out, I'm a really good shot.


                      I ain't buying a gun yet, but I'm considering a CCL.


                      First one I shot was a .45 ACP, and I also put some lead downrange with a Smith and Wesson silenced .22.


                      Stay frosty my friends, and watch your six, it's a crazy world out there.

                          I know that not all of my social network friends are members of American Atheists (why some are not I don't understand, but.... ), but to those who are (or are likely to be soon), a suggestion/warning: the American Atheists convention next April in Cincinnati is quite likely to sell out (as all recent ones have) and the hotel is quite likely to sell out of rooms for the convention, too. Besides that, we're going to have, thanks to the generosity of attorney Edward Tabash, a nice evening banquet that will be FREE to the first 500 registrants.

                          Please plan and register ahead to avoid disappointment.
