Look I agree with your sentiment 100%. I'd prefer we NOT put armed guards and airport security anywhere.
Yes, so is McConnell. So are most of the assholes that go to congress a paupers and exit as millionaires, party affiliation is no matter.
We sure follow some ignorant philosophies and they have nothing to do with Christians.

Not the people attacking his car, then trying to attack him? I would say that much fault would lie at the feet of those who tried to close in on him in a moving car and hit his car with bats and clubs.

"I'm trained in science, have taught evolution at the college level (as Physical Anthropology), and yet I am not an atheist."
It sounds as though you have become obsessed with religion and may be becoming not a little controlling. You spent seven years indoctrinating yourself into accepting God as true. Now you cannot accept that your husband is not prepared to go through the same indoctrination. If he is anything like other atheistic men, he won't, and if you try to make him, he will eventually get fed up with it.
