"Zondervan Releases Hollow Bible For Political Photo Ops"

(Yes, it's satire.)
Satire?  Bummer.  That was the first actually useful looking bible I've ever seen -- I mean, you could store things in it and not just waste bookshelf space!

I googled but still could not answer my question.  I grew up with a Baptist grandmother, and was not familiar with the term Southern Baptist.  Here in Virginia, there are Baptist churches everywhere, but I don't think I've ever seen a church sign calling itself "Southern Baptist."  Should I just assume all are Southern Baptists.  Or are none of them?  My grandmother's church was Baptist, but it was simply called the Cicero Bible Church, so I'm not clear if this particular group of Baptists is special, or just the same old same old.  Whatever kind of Baptist my grandmother was, she was kind, loving (except she hated Catholics), uneducated, and what I would call delusional, at least that believed the Devil was real and lurking about all the time.  Is that delusional?  It is to me.
I think this addresses your question:  In short: Protestants are Christians that are not Catholics. Baptists are Protestants that baptize adults rather than infants. In the US, the term Baptist is also widely used as a synonym for evangelical Christian churches that belong to the Southern Baptist Convention.

I think the key element is the 'Convention'.  If a church is a member then they are Southern Baptist.  A quick search lead me to understand that there are at least 60 Baptist organizations, to maybe over 10,000.  I guess it all depends upon your definition.  But it is clear that they are not clear or do not agree on what it takes to be right with god.  Surprise, surprise.

Too bad.  I wan't one for my book shelves.  It's not like I need to hide a gun or drugs.  I just think it's cool.  I would put a little note inside so whoever opened it would see my note that says, "Fuck You."

JFC.

Over-reaction to his approaching them (he was bringing them a police helmet).  In our security training at my old job, we were told in an active shooter situation, to lock down, and never approach the MPs who are arriving, because they can't tell you from an active shooter.  If you do encounter the MPs, don't move at all.  Your movement is the trigger for their violence.

American revolutionaries unite!  You have only to lose your stupid life at the end of a police action.

I heard that 57 of the other cops resigned to protest the suspension of the 2.

Supposed to be true (Buffalo NY).  Because cops support cops, but not the mayor.  Dem mayors are communists, who want to destroy all places of business?
