The Bible, the Quran, Homosexuality, and Orlando: A Response to JaclynGlenn

BY ADDISON WIER

YouTube atheist JaclynGlenn has just recently released a video of her commenting on the recent shooting of a gay club in Orlando by Omar Mateen, as well as the responses given by a couple of pastors who were actually praising such an event.1  Now, in this video it’s clear that she’s really down and upset about everything that’s happened, and it’s also clear that she’s not trying to spread any more hate.  Because of that, I’m going to give her a bit of a break.  However, there are two points that JaclynGlenn makes that I would like to comment on.2

Recommended Readings on Historical Apologetics

Hey guys!  I know I’ve already posted a similar article listing my recommended resources on Christian apologetics, but today I wanted to offer another list that focuses specifically on historical apologetics.  This way I can divide these up into different categories concerning that area without making things confusing (plus doing it this way is more enjoyable to me for some reason).  For this post, I will only be listing books:

The Existence of Jesus and the “Copycat” Thesis

  1.  Shattering the Christ Myth: Did Jesus Not Exist? (2008), Edited by James Patrick Holding
  2.  Did Jesus Exist?: The Historical Argument for Jesus of Nazereth (2012), by Bart D. Ehrman*
  3.  Unmasking the Pagan Christ: An Evangelical Response to the Cosmic Christ Idea (2006), by Stanley E. Porter and Stephen J. Bedard
  4. Lord or Legend?: Wrestling with the Jesus Dilemma (2007), by Gregory A. Boyd and Paul R. Eddy

The New Purpose of the Amateur Apologist

BY ADDISON WIER

Hey guys, it’s been a while since I last posted, so here I am. I also wanted to announce that this site will no longer be aimed at simply atheistic arguments on the internet. It will also serve as a place for me to not only publish my own arguments for the existence of God, but also to write about anything else I feel like writing about. Also, as you can see, I never quite finished the critique of the blog mentioned in my last post. I’ve decided that instead of finishing that, I’m going to move on to writing about other things, since my heart isn’t really into doing the former.

That is all.

Sincerely,

Addison Wier
