Of course it is, real atheists are as convinced of their faith (and atheism IS a faith) as any Bible thumping snake handler or jihadi looking to blow himself up to get his allotment of virgins. As I understand it this book is aimed at the true agnostics and people new or unsure of their faith.
Yep, Mr. Goetz was convicted of one count of violating New York's (unconstitutional) gun laws and spent 8 months in prison. He was found liable in the civil trial and the thug he shot was awarded $43 million, which a judge ruled could not be dismissed by the bankruptcy, but he's never paid a dime of it. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bernhard_Goetz

As they tried to do with Reagan. As you might recall he LOST the 1976 nomination, and one of the reasons was the party elite attacked him as being too extreme. But he didn't give up, and during that process came to NC and Jesse Helms Congressional Club got behind him and he won NC. That helped give him the confidence to try again in 1980... the rest, as they say, is history.

There is a lot of truth to what you are saying, but remember PATCO thought they were too entrenched for Reagan to fight them and look what happened to THEM.

No, prayer works, but you can't depend on prayer alone, God will do his part, but we have to do the footwork.
Thank you Dr. Adams. Aren't there privacy laws anymore? A few years ago I tried to get a copy of the original title to my 50+ year old Studebaker pickup and was told they could only provide it if the name of the owner was blacked out. So I can't find out who bought a pickup truck in 1960 due to privacy laws but pretty much anyone in authority in a university can find out who's been sexually assaulted?!? How on Earth does that make ANY kind of sense?
I don't think there are any good intentions involved. It's all about pretending to do something about a problem (real or imagined) and using that pretense as an excuse to give the powers that be more power and authority over us.
