I have mixed feelings. On one hand, of course his position in the industry gives him leverage to do the things he does. So purchasing his music or tickets gives him more power. However, do people that like his music approve of the things he does? And where do we draw the line? Most people in the industry have, in some form or fashion, done something suspect. If R. Kelly's music is no longer played, or promoted, are we going to do that for all artists? If not, it doesn't seem fair his is only singled out when technically he has not been tried and charged with any crime [as far as I know].
It only extends until a child reaches the age of public education.
NO human can grasp the concept of infinite. We say God is infinite but we do not really understand what it means because we are all finite beings. We have a beginning and we will have an end. God had/has/will have neither.
Yep. Religion does do that. But the Truth brings Love and Family.
" does Christianophobia exist? Should it be taken seriously? "
John Lennox, or your interpretation of what he says, is wrong. Quantum Physics enables the computer you type on to post in this forum. It's contribution to physics is significant. Lennox is a "philosopher of science" which as the name implies is centered on philosophy and not science.

It?s 2 hours & 59 minutes Tex. We got to take the in-between Prep time in consideration!
I do not see how it could count as endorsement.
Wanna know what stops a bad guy with a STD? A good guy with a STD!
No. Not at all.
We sure saw a lot of that on November 8th two years ago, didn't we?
No it is not. You have the burden of proof. Tacitus wrote what he wrote. He did not claim it came from a third party. YOU do. The burden of proof lies squarely in your arena.
Be careful with chronology here. Bar Kochba was over by 132. The only canonical gospel that is plausibly (and probably) later than Bar Kochba is Luke. There were, of course, other messianic rebellions, and Roman worry over them was most likely a proximate cause of Jesus' death. Each of the canonical gospels had a slightly different target audience. For Matttew, it was mid-1st century Jewish Christians. For Mark, it was late-1st century Gentile Pauline Christians. For Luke and John, it was predominantly, and perhaps even exclusively, Roman Gentiles with an interest in distancing themselves from Judaism.
And here I am, completely unable to taste the difference. ROFL :)
