I agree. As a parent (thankfully my kids are grown now) it was my responsibility to ensure my children did not have access to the guns my husband owns. That is what actual gun safes are for and many come with multiple locking mechanisms on them to prevent such a thing from occurring. With the rise in numbers of school shootings parents should have enough common sense to know that yes, it can be your precious child next who takes a gun to school. I don't know of a single parent who wants to think it may be their child but it does not change a parents responsibility to ensure their child and others do not have access to their guns. To think that an adolescent is responsible enough because they make good grades, work part time, or can handle money does not mean they are responsible enough to have access to guns. I know many adults who should never be allowed near a gun, my oldest son is a perfect example. I tried to take a hand gun from my son because I knew he was in distress and was promptly told I could not legally take it because he was licensed and owned the gun. About a month later he was arrested after trying to commit suicide and threatening the officers who came for a safety check. If a grown man (was in the military at the time) can not think clearly when in distress than we can not expect youths to do any better. While my son is just an example and does not prove anything about other people who may own or have access to a gun it does show that people can not make assumptions about someone's intent.
Where? Who? I am not aware of a single Christian in the world advocating for enforced Christianity.
Every species we "preserve" in captivity is actually entering a new evolutionary track requiring symbiosis with the human species. Domestication is symbiosis. If human beings ever get off this planet, we'll definitely be taking some animals with us, most likely our pets and chickens at first. I think in a million years, dogs and cats will evolve to actually speak our languages.
Well, who would that worthy be?
Star Trek vs Star Wars vs Babylon 5 which is better TELEVISION Sci-Fi?
I have two very simple "proof of god thingies" style challenges.
I say difficult to grasp because it has been an OP before. Many people do have trouble with it
1 would involve calling out specific people, which I don't really want to do. It's a common argument used though. Rene Salm's name's come up frequently because he's the most popular author who's argued that Nazareth didn't exist.
Then, if not, where does original sin come from?
I've been getting A LOT of push back from the school even though I've already withdrawn my son. They pushed back on me from the time I gave them notice and they're still being jerks to me. It's so bizarre. It's not like their enrollment is sinking that they need to freak out about one child. They're taking it so personal right now.
Citizenship is not required for union membership. Our local SEIU actively courts illegal aliens.
If you open a public business, you're open to all of the public.
What feels good can be trained to support sustainable civilizations. Civilizations also evolve. Not necessarily for the better when people expect society to feed and pleasure them.
Both questions show a fundimental (no pun intended) lack of understanding of even the basics of the Christian faith.
When you say "if one doesnt know much about Islamic doctrine" I guess you are implying you know much better then others? You know better then hundreds of millions that marry children, kill "infidels", kill apostates, .... even if they insist it is their Islam only true Islam?
So... who got it right, besides you?
I never said men were inspired. Yehoveh spoke, Moses wrote. Yehoveh spoke, the prophets wrote.
This critical review is worth reading, a review of the false history pushed by Karen Armstrong, bitter ex-nun:

I'll bet you haven't, cons are low information voters!
I love it! Why didn't I think of that? :-)
It's kind of sad.
"I do not use to read only one book but many to cross-examine the sources. Why don't you do the same?"
I'm sorry, luv. :) The mythicist position is that Jesus was a myth, that he never existed.
Why should a woman rule over a man?
No need to hang out in ladies circles - all well known facts available via Google:
Stay Puft, if you have a grievance with a moderation decision, you've been informed of the process for raising it.
actually it is.. to bad yur unable to recognize that yet..
Yeah, pretty much... I don;t think anyone has come up with an operational and structurally functional definition... Do you have anything better?
"How do you know it didn't exist before time?" This is enough to show people who may read this your ignorant in simple science?! Is there anything physical could exist without Time and space?! I'll not wait for your unswer just learn yourself before making funny comments.
Adding the one, dividing by pie...yes! ??
