Rick BeckmanIs there a god? Who was Jesus? Does the Bible allow men to have multiple wives? Does the Bible also require that rapists marry their victims?

I once argued strongly for the existence of God, guided by the Bible. Today, I argue for the secularity of the public realm and for a common sense, straightforward understanding of what the Bible says.

You are one of the most knowledgeable, most intelligent, smartest people I know. Your posts are very direct and to the point. No beating around the bush and no mincing words. But also not being a jerk about it. You are very well informed about the issues and you have taught me that I need to be informed about the issues important to me. I learned the importance of fact checking because of you. I love that you are trying to teach people to be better than they are.
