re: Christian parents, I need your advice: how would you feel if your own child came out to you as atheist?

I think it would be somewhat analogous to one of my children having children of their own and deciding they were adamantly opposed to vaccination.

On a certain (if extremely limited) level, I would be glad that they took their children's health (or their relationship with God) seriously enough to not just take everyone at their word, but to really study and evaluate for themselves what they thought was right and true.

I would be eager to discuss their doubts, and try to share my personal experiences and understandings, and I'd really want to hear how their research or thinking had led them to their conclusions. I'd also want to discuss the cost/benefit analysis of their decision. Because, finally, I'd be really, really concerned. Because it seems abundantly clear to me that the consequences of their actions are extremely severe.

You make some interesting points, but I'm wondering if you could expand on this a bit more.

I'm sure there are people who do it with the best of motives, but for me, I think it smacks of gnosticism. When someone mentions "Yeshua" or whatever similar alternative, I can't help thinking that they believe they have a special knowledge; are part of an elite subgroup of Christians that I'm not. I think Christianity should seek whenever possible to be unified and accessible, and using unfamiliar names doesn't further that aim.

Thanks for pointing this out. I always think it's worth noting that the endurance of slavery usually had more to do with geographical latitude than morality. Slaves couldn't be utilized to much of a worthwhile economic end in colder climates. Growing anything in such places took so much careful nurturing and planning, that you had no real way of utilizing a ton of free labor, versus in warmer regions, where things grew so readily and plentifully, you needed a lot more hands on deck for harvesting.

The history of the US abolition in particular starts in the extreme north and slowly works its way south. Even at the outbreak of the War Between the States one can see how the states deepest in the South were most vocal about defending slavery, while mid-Southern States fought more reluctantly, and only when faced with a choice between giving Lincoln troops or joining the Confederacy, while the northernmost Southern states like Maryland and Delaware ultimately allowed themselves to remain in the Union.

As a Southerner, it always drives me crazy how people seem to suggest the Yankees were just inherently more moral. Like with most wars, it just came down to economics.

I agree–seems like it used to be that you might have a team of smaller guys that could run and pass circles around a side made up of bigger guys, but the bigger guys could plow through the smaller guys (which is, incidentally more or less what happened when the US faced France in the 1924 olympics). Different trade-offs to give each match-up its own unique dynamic. Now you can hardly even tell the props from the scrum-half. Everyone's just jacked.

I always felt deprived by the rather dreary utilitarian architecture of my Oklahoma schools. Still in awe of Averill’s. It says a lot about what education and children meant to the community who built this as the centerpiece of their sleepy little town. Also, I wish we still had the WPA.
