    The Accountant seems like it's a movie mixture of The Bourne Identity and A Beautiful Mind. Nonetheless, I still want to see it.

    The bottom line of this discussion is determining whether or not it's good to have laws prohibiting sexual behaviors, in general, and prostitution, in particular. It seems to me that you believe local, state, nor the federal governments should have laws prohibiting sexual behavior. If I'm correct about that, then are you for repealing laws that prohibit sexual acts like rape, child molestation, and bestiality because they have been codified by civil magistrates? I'm just trying to understand where your thinking is on that.

    Where did Christian Liberty ever say, "Comply or cooperate with my judgment, or I will murder you," as it pertains to prostitution?

    If you're a Christian, then you should have a moral problem with bestiality. If you don't, then you need to study the Scriptures to see what God thinks of it. Now, my reason for asking you about bestiality was to simply show that you do pass judgments on sexual behavior, just as Christian Liberty does. There is no neutrality about it. That brings me to your statement: There is no religious neutrality in public policy. The rejection of a Biblical application to public policy is just the adoption of another religious authority, which in our current state of affairs is secular humanism. Some group of citizens will be judged and sanctioned by the law, based on the religious foundation of those who create laws. That's why homosexuals, for example, are using state and federal legislatures to impose their morality upon Christians (and other groups) through "hate crimes legislation." Once again, that's just a reflection of someone's religious worldview. It's simply inevitable.

    Okay, maybe I misunderstood you, so let me back up and ask if you have a problem with sexual acts like bestiality.

    It doesn't matter which of the two tod evans was referring to because both of them are judgments of a sexual act. That was simply my point. Now, concerning how that relates to this thread, as Christians, we know the Bible teaches that God is sovereign over His creation, which means that He has authority over every aspect of human life. So, when we are discussing public policy about certain behaviors which are public taboos in our society, then our first question to ask is, "What has God said about it?" From there, we use wisdom from the Scriptures to understand how that behavior ought to be dealt with in society by all levels of government (self, family, church, and civil) in order to please God.

    My point is that you have a moral declaration about a particular sexual behavior, and that declaration is, in fact, passing judgment upon those who engage in the act (which, in the case I quoted you from, was bestiality). In fact, everyone passes judgment on sexual behaviors. I'm sure that no one here accepts that rape is a moral sexual behavior. But, hey, if there is no God, and thus, there is no ultimate ethical standard for sexual behavior, so, therefore, humans are nothing more than evolved bags of meat with electricity running through themselves, then some people can't help their sexual preference to rape others. And we can apply that same reasoning to other sexual behaviors. So, then, where is the room to judge any sexual behavior, if God hasn't set up some rules for standard sexuality? Thus, the prerequisite in this whole discussion is marked by one simple question: "By whose standard?"

    If your rifle is for self defense and combat, forget it. Scopes are useless. Get an m1a scout for close quarters to mid range(preferred), or fully loaded model for distance, with classic picatinny peep hole sights with lateral and vertical adjustment for wind and distance accuracy. Forget scopes...., red dot is garbage. Your rifle is only as good as your instinct.

    Oh, so it's not okay for Christian Liberty to pass judgment on other people's sexuality, but it's okay for you to do so when it comes to bestiality? Remember this?

    While I recognize you asked for expert opinions, I won't let that stop me from offering one (hey you know what they say about opinions!) I have a Leopold Mark IV, a Nikon Monarch, Trijicon gear....but for a purely wonderful piece of glass (there must be a way to mount one to a picatinny rail), consider looking at Swarovski. My first experience with Swarovski glass was using a pair of Swarovski binoculars, which, and I know it can be hard to believe, are absurdly more clear and detailed than any binoculars I'd ever used before. And they bring in more light somehow, so at dusk, you can see for an extra 10-20 minutes when you'd set down any other set of binoculars. After that, I tried a Swarovski scope, and it's the same deal. They're just so clear it's hard to explain. Now in terms of night-optics, having played a bit with those, the problem I have (and people here with more experience are probably better to chime in) is unless you're ready to plunk down SERIOUS (think $5k+ coinage) for truly professional grade gear, the more budget stuff (and even now we're still talking $1k-$3k) is hit or miss depending on conditions. Electronic night-gear and shooting out to the distance you want, at night....i'm not even sure where one would start that would be highly effective. Man I'd love to plink with an LMT sometime. Congrats on the purchase!

    Shem was nice enough to let me stay with him in 2012 and 2015 in New Hampshire. He also drove me from Manchester to Boston once when I missed my flight and had to buy a new one. He was always willing to help out, and he will be missed very much.

    Yes, I could have looked it up, myself, but I was interested in your view on it, in relation to Islamic theology. Are there any other passages in the Qur'an where casus belli is taught? Is that principle derived originally from Islamic thought?
