"For generations, we have been printing billions of books containing verses that command us to kill idolaters, adulterers, homosexuals, and unbelievers. We teach our children that these books are holy and then cross our fingers in hopes that they won’t take those verses seriously.

I heard just that argument this morning on the radio:

"Here’s a sure-fire way to annoy me: write and explain to me how I got the details of some stupid gun wrong.

Har, har, it’s semi-automatic, not fully automatic. Don’t you know nothin’? It’s 7.62mm, not 7.63mm. The muzzle velocity is…
