Hello, everyone! First off, I'm a born-again Christian, and I believe the Bible to be the word of God. Second, I'm husband to my childhood sweetheart, and I wouldn't trade our relationship for the…Continue
"Here's the best way to do it:
1. Be respectful
2. Be firm
3. Offer solutions, not "or else" statements (unless it gets REALLY bad)
4. Stick to your guns, figuratively and literally
5. If he won't respect your wishes, you might…"
"Why do I carry a gun?
Because a cop is too heavy.
Because I'd rather be tried by 12 than carried by 6.
Because the bad guys have them.
Because I would not be able to live with myself if something happened to someone I love while I was…"
A place for gentlemen of all stripes who are interested in the broad field of Christian apologetics. If you are a thoughtful man interested in pursuing a more reasonable faith, or if becoming a pipe-smoking clone of C.S. Lewis is one of your greatest aspirations, then this is the place for you.See More
"I think that a lot of people respect him for being a strong leader, as well as an avid outdoorsman. Policies aside, he is all man. There are many things in which I am opposed to Putin, but as I stated before, every strong leader has his/her…"
"You can't argue with the fact that he has won several high-level Judo matches. Some of his manly exploits may have been staged (such as tagging the tiger, etc), but he is still very much the outdoors type.
As much as I do disagree with…"
""sitting around pointing fingers at society and screeching out its sinfulness isn't advancing Christianity"
I beg to differ. Sometimes people need that "voice crying in the wilderness" to wake up and do something…"
"I guess you could call what my wife and I did courtship, though it was sort of modified. We started talking via email, then phone, after she sent my family a Christmas card. We'd known each other since 2nd grade so the card wasn't…"
"I trained at a dojo that taught Jui Jitsu, Karate, and weapons (several different arts mixed in there). One monthly price got you into as many or few classes as you wanted. I wasn't there to compete, but simply to learn how to take care of…"
"You can get a very reliable starter shotgun for pretty cheap (about $230, give or take). Mossberg 500s are great, and I plan to get myself one in the near future. Very customizable once you get comfortable with shooting it the way it…"
"Don't mistake my statement of "the law says X" as saying that it *should* be that way. Simply that it currently *is* that way - and that there are existing arguments for why that is. They can be challenged, but so far, I see no need…"
"Except they did adhere to their demands, they were allowed to use the bus of their choosing. The only thing which the link says is some anonymous folks threw a fit about it on their Twitter accounts, not that the bus company did anything about…"
"That's all well and good, but as far as I'm aware the bus company never banned them from using their service.
So are you going to start a petition to have them do so, or are you going to just keep posting hot air while the Muslims go on…"
"It goes both ways. If your opinion was "Colorado should not legalize weed and it should remain illegal forever", you'd have to make a position for your opposition as well.I've already stated potential arguments here which…"
"I agree, if you think a law should be changed, present an argument for why. We fought against the laws which provided for slavery. Colorado fought against the laws which made Marijuana illegal. In those cases, they present the argument against the…"
"Sorry I'm just amazed by how weak that argument was.
It's not that complicated, if someone wants to make a case for why... Colorado should or shouldn't legalize marijuana, then yes it's on them to provide a reason.If their…"
"So - you won't explain why you think the current framework for our contract law is invalid.
I take that to mean you don't understand it, and just want to posit an oppositional question to everything rather than actually discuss your…"
