Tenn. Code Ann.§ 39-11-611(a) In specific declares there is no duty to retreat before using force:
(a) As used in this section, unless the context otherwise requires:
(1) &#147;Business&#148; means a commercial enterprise or establishment owned by a person as all or part of the person's livelihood or is under the owner's control or who is an employee or agent of the owner with responsibility for protecting persons and property and shall include the interior and exterior premises of the business;
(2) &#147;Curtilage&#148; means the area surrounding a dwelling that is necessary, convenient and habitually used for family purposes and for those activities associated with the sanctity of a person's home;
(3) &#147;Dwelling&#148; means a building or conveyance of any kind, including any attached porch, whether the building or conveyance is temporary or permanent, mobile or immobile, that has a roof over it, including a tent, and is designed for or capable of use by people;
(4) &#147;Residence&#148; means a dwelling in which a person resides, either temporarily or permanently, or is visiting as an invited guest, or any dwelling, building or other appurtenance within the curtilage of the residence; and
(5) &#147;Vehicle&#148; means any motorized vehicle that is self-propelled and designed for use on public highways to transport people or property.
Continuing...
§ 39-11-611(c) Any person using force intended or likely to cause but it sets a standard, or more specifically, it "presumes" that if a person uses deadly force, then that person must have felt fear or felt he was threatened. That being the case and from that point forward, it would be the duty of the District Attorney(court etc...) to prove that the person didn't feel fear or was not threatened.
You must not comprehend what you read, or, you didn't look at the links I provided in the earlier post made to you.
In either case, you didn't comprehend.
From the earlier post made to you:
"Our current law doesn't change anything with respect to the presumption of fear," Nashville attorney David Raybin said. "Home, car, business _whatever you want to call it _ you have a presumption of fear with somebody breaking in and you can shoot him."

You're hilarious.
LOL

Unbelievable!

Do you understand the difference between being able to stand your ground and STILL needing the necessarily elements to use deadly force?

For the FOURTH time. Nobody is saying you have to flee

But to use deadly force, two things are required:

1) The person had a reasonable fear for their life
2) They were in IMMINENT Danger

You don't get to combine the two and claim the person gets to believe he may have been in imminent danger even though he wasn't

Let me help you understand why both are needed. Someone can be in imminent danger but that danger may not be life-threatening. In which case they are allowed to use self-defense but self-defense is defined as only enough force necessary to stop an attack

That is why they also must prove they had a reasonable reason to fear for their life

Standing your ground is not synonymous with justification of using deadly force

You don't understand the law

Even when the words are right in front of you

Give it up. You are wrong

That may be true for you, but it isn't for me.

I've learned to trust my intuition, my "gut feeling". It's usually not wrong.
About what?
Deities being nonexistent.
What's a briar statement?
lol. An autocorrect typo.
No, that's subjective truth. You can't demonstrate that any of that is true. You're convinced, but so what? Conviction of belief by faith is not unique to Christianity.
You can replace "God" with The Flying Spaghetti Monster or just about anything imaginable, and it would be just as valid.
No I cannot replace God with FSM.

Maybe you can, but I can't.

The label "atheist" only tells you what a person does not believe. It says nothing about what they do believe.
Bullshit.

You believe Yahweh doesn't exist.

You also believe you can prove that.

You also believe you don't have any beliefs.

Why were you excited that there was diversity among the naked men you were taking spas and showers with?
I am honestly trying to understand how that even was a factor
Why would it matter to a straight guy what the ethnicity is of the nude guy in the spa next to him?

What morality ?
Less than 200 years ago in the USA the Christian majority believed in slavery, executions without trials, women and children as property, only white, male property owners had the right to vote, etc....
Anyone who says morality hasn't improved in the USA is either insane, very ignorant or a goddam liar!
So did the male majority

So did the white majority

So did the land owning majority

So did the southern majority

So did the United States citizen majority

Maybe even the majority of people with brown hair

Its funny how people bristle at the idea that this is a Christian nation but now when they want to blame things done as a nation in the past that it was somehow a Christian thing

It wasn't being done in the name of Christianity. Slavery was being done in the name greed by southern cotton field land owners

Women were not allowed to vote because people in power never want to lose the status quo and allow anything to jeopardize that power. Of course those in power wanted to prevent women from voting

But since these changes came through wars, votes, and legislation; and Christians are the majority, who do you think brought about the change for the better then?

You can't have it both ways

Besides it was an American problem, not a Christian problem

I agree that if one leaves the faith it should be either based on doctrine or belief and not other people

I have never understood people who would abandon their own principles or belief or something important to them because someone else doesn't do it justice

However I was curious about something and feel free to explain smuch or as little as you want

But you became a Christian as an adult. I would presume you had a grasp of at least the basics. I am running short of time today so if there was a better way of phrasing that just chalk it up to rushing. Anyway, what came after that as far as doctrine that would then cause you to leave that you didn't know when you joined?

I believe no matter how you word the joke, considering the facts, the punchline will always be Catcher is straight!

I saw once again that was lost on him on why we find this funny

I'd maybe give him an "atta boy" if he was gay

Hey to each their own. If a gay man like a variety of ethic men who am I to say he shouldn't? I like a variety of ethnic women

But I am lost on why a straight man would consider it a plus that the naked men in the spas and showers with him were diversified

I actually am hoping he explains that one!

Ok, wait. Is it irrelevant and you don't care or is it irrelevant and you care enough to inquire about it? I'm confused.
What is "true to you" has been established.

Do you think that your beliefs accurately represent the reality that we all share? Do you think that believers of other religions will see your deity when they die?

Believers of other religions could think you'll see their deity when you die.

What reason do you have to justify choosing one religion over another? What sets your beliefs apart?

Are you one of many who believe that all religions are flawed attempts at relating to a singular deity?

Ya, that's pretty much what I said. In your mind, deities aren't real. Or if you prefer, in your mind, deities don't exist. Six to one, half a dozen to the other...
No, I don't believe in any deities.

I can't say that deities don't exist without defining what a deity must be.

I have a good reason to believe that the deities people believe in and have believed in are fabrications, because they appear to be direct projections of the cultures where they first appear as concepts. That's not enough to rule out anything that someone might define as a deity.

Why do you always have to play games?

A crazy person might define a deity as a hamburger

You know exactly what he is referring to when he says deities

You know what definition he is using when he says you don't believe in deities

There is absolutely no reason to qualify you can't rule out you don't believe in dieties as based on the definition that every human being on Earth may say a diety is

You group spends so much time over nonsensical semantics either to be assholes, you think it is some sort of "W", or you just don't understand normal interaction

Can you imagine if anytime someone asked somebody something they used your method of responding and said well I can't answer that without knowing how every person on earth would define the words you would use in a sentence

I think you think these tactics make you look clever.

And it is your regular M.O.

I have never seen someone enjoy being intentionally obtuse before. Yet you choose to be as some type of weird game

Dude, it's a choice, plain and simple.

I don't necessailry believe that, but I do think it's a possibility.

Maybe that's your problem... You need to be able to define God before you can believe in Him. That's interesting.

And you will get no argument from me for that reason. Because I myself reject many religions based on their doctrine.

You know the doctrine of Christianity---you experienced Christianity---and you reject the Christianity and it's doctrine.

Christianity should not expect any more from you. Whether you're wrong or not is not up to Christianity to decide---but it's between you and God.

You shouldn't trust your intuition for anything you have religious faith in. Faith has the ability to overrule everything in the mind short of sudden mortal fear. Give it time, and faith can overrule that as well. That's how you get suicide bombers.

Of course you know, conviction in faith varies. Not everyone has the impressive faith of a suicide bomber. Trifecta might.

Intuition seems to support all who have religious faith, no matter what they have religious faith in.

Again, what sets your beliefs apart. What sets your justification apart? Why is your intuition, that you trust, better than those who believe things that are inconsistent with what you believe?

I do not propose that deities are nonexistent. Someone could define a deity in such a way that an alien life might fit the description.

Anyone could replace "God" with the FSM or any number of other imaginary entities.

How do you know that the Bible wasn't written/inspired by the FSM? How do you know that the Noodle King isn't just playing a large scale prank on a large portion of humanity? You don't know. You can't know.

If Christianity was just one more fabricated religion among thousands, would you be able to recognize that? How can you tell that this one religion is correct?

Hey
8 tries later mac finally provides the link to his source!
Good job!!
And i said i don't open links from dumbass trolls. You must consider yourself one then to figure i wouldn't open yours?
Although considering I asked you for 8x obviously you know that isn't the truth
If you thought i wouldn't open it mac, why did you send me three unrelated links?
You guys love your stories
All this, an entire and so many posts, just to get you to link your source!
But try to play whatever game you want to save face.
I have not followed this much, but let me interject: I tire of you calling or intimating that good posters such as Mac are trolls.

I don't think hardly anyone accepts that as anything other than desperation.

And your demand for a link from him reminds me of you quoting Raymond Brown and, when I provided the fuller quote, you demanding a link to the author and text you first quoted.

Now. As to Texas law, I found the Texas provisions easily from following an earlier link that Mac provided.

If your difficulty in doing so is real, you have a problem; if it's pretend, as I suspect, well....

I have not followed this discussion closely; I nevertheless bothered to read at least some of the relevant Texas provisions.

Section 9.41 permits the use of force to prevent trespass or more. Section 9.42 requires more for the use of deadly force -- such as theft at night.

Now I assume there is a definitions section to go with these provisions: What is "trespass", "theft", "force", "deadly force", and so on? This is not of sufficient interest for me do look. but anyone seriously trying to understand Texas law on the subject would look there first, as well as Texas case law interpreting these provisions.

Anyone actually interest in Texas law on this matter probably would do well by starting here:
