I asked a question. It's a valid question. Is this more than lip-service? Looking at Brown's past columns one doesn't have to dig too hard to find clues it *is* only lip-service. In "The Church is not a Closet" he implies it's okay to politicize his religion. In "Bad News About Childhood TV Watching and Adult Criminality" he charges that TV and video games are going to turn kids into criminals. Where does he want to go with this? I seriously doubt he's talking about letting a free market decide. .

Dismissal is still a denial tactic.

If you have good reasons to disagree with someone, you need to prove you're moral by presenting them, for "moral" means "having good reasons for what we do, or think."

Yes, I just said your faith was immoral. Would you like to know the good reasons for thinking that? Or were you just leaving to stick your thumb in your mouth and your head in the sand?

I'm a male. My wife of 37 years is Kim. You can find either of us on google fairly easily. So you lose your bet. And I'm a software engineer. My only management was in my own software business.

CC-U sure that "donny" is a "HE"? I'd put money on Donjindra being female (and most likely middle-level Management or Legal).

"because I'm smarter than you,"

Maybe you are. So why not show me?

"I love this country more than you,"

How do you propose to measure this?

"and I believe in absolute truths"

Me too.

"But, as I said earlier, you're not worth my time"

But you spend your time responding to me. Obviously I am worth your time..

"BTW, Dr. Brown is addressing Christians"

So when, say, Obama addresses Democrats you feel like you shouldn't respond? Hypocrisy and poor reasoning is rampant in "conservative" circles, that's for sure.

I would deal with you directly, Don, because I'm smarter than you, I love this country more than you, and I believe in absolute truths that could really help you. But, as I said earlier, you're not worth my time, you're only worth my derision. BTW, Dr. Brown is addressing Christians; that may not apply to me. It definitely doesn't apply to you.

Btw, ConcealedCarry, Brown's #4 reads, "If we become as mean-spirited and hateful as those who oppose us, we have already lost the battle." You could learn something with that advice. But I doubt you would learn from it. I doubt you or the others I constantly butt heads with could ever be civil about what you believe. Yes, I think Brown is correct when he says you've already lost.

BUZZZZZ! --I don't care what you think. I only care about how you act. And where did I attack Brown's character? You guys really do seem to have thin skin. Pretty much all you do is attack character in others. So stop your hypocritical whining.

Dismissal and denial are special pleading, an automatic lose for you.

Here was a valid criticism;
" In "The Church is not a Closet" he implies it's okay to politicize his religion."

If you don't address it, it stands. Simply rejecting it isn't good enough.

Likewise, presenting your juvenile game-show framework (Bzzt!) violates the christian imperative for honesty, humility and charity.

...and Christ will ask you, there with St. Peter; "Did I fuqqing stutter?"

BUZZZZZ! --- Fail!!!

Try again, little Donny! Your examples are not relevant, they are petulant. You don't agree with Dr. Brown's politics, so you attack his character.

Chries and others, don't waste your time on li'l Donny. He's really not worth it right now. Maybe when he demonstrates some honesty and a genuine desire for knowledge and understanding, he might then be worthy of some of your time. As it is now, he's only worthy of derision.

The Bible is not only the world’s most widely distributed book (by the billions), it is also the world’s most widely banned book. That’s because it is not just an eclectic assortment of ancient religious traditions. Rather, it is the ultimate threat to the status quo of prideful, human kingdom building and the definitive collection of divinely inspired revolutionary writings.

With that in mind, here are 7 biblical principles for world changers:

1) “You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything...
