Welcome to AnnoyedMan.com, a website archiving the many rants, musings, screeds, and diatribes of The Annoyed Man - the most annoyed man on the Internet. I am, in this order of importance, a Christian, husband, father, grandfather, curmudgeon, and patriot. I am a Liberative Conservatarian, and a registered independent - having at various times in my life made the grave, but fortunately reversible, mistake of having registered as either a democrat or a republican. I consider myself an unbiased observer of people and politics. It is possible (nay, even likely) that something I publish here will offend you. Try and imagine how little I care. The Constitution of the United States of America protects your right to your opinions, including a right to BE offended; but exactly nowhere in that august document is there a section protecting you FROM offense. If you're angry enough about something I write, then you can cart your snowflake ass off somewhere else; or better yet, you can pull up your big-boy pants, try adulting for a while, and get your own website where you can write all you want about what a jerk I am.

If you're not offended, then we'll get along just fine; so pull up a chair, light a cigar, take a sip of that whiskey, and enjoy the visit.

There are 4 gospel accounts of this scene, and Matthew 26:52 is the only one which mentions anything close to a rebuke. Here are the 4 versions for your own view, using the ESV version:

Jesus and the Gun

I began this essay as a response to a "progressive" with whom I exchanged tweets, who throught that Holly Fisher's posing with a Bible in one hand and an AR15 in the other was hypocritical of her. More about Ms. Fisher at the end of this essay, but you can see a little bit of her story HERE.

Virtue and the Ragamuffin Man

Virtues

What motivated this essay was this: this very website contains the word “Virtue” in its name. To me, the classic virtues are incredibly important standards to live by. They make our world better, and to the extent that people are evil to one another, it is often because they lack these virtues. Here’s how Wikipedia lists them (CLICK HERE TO VIEW PAGE):
