3. "I believe this, therefore you can't do that."

I need a Latin scholar to translate that and add it to the list of logical fallacies.

Only the timid limit themselves to Ten Commandments.
There are actually 613 Commandments.

7. As a Christian who considers the Bible authoritative in matters of faith and practice

I wholeheartedly agree with you. It was never intented for such and to do so would be going against its basic principles.

10. My preferred response to bibble thumpers

Who invariably ask their well indoctrinated inquisition: "Do yoo accept Jeeebus Christ Crunch Cereal as your personal imaginary masochist?"
(Did I get that right?)
I reply "Hold the phone there, Jack. I refuse to be measured by your religious yardstick."

In my childhood (late 60's), an elderly neighbor woman I used to visit with after school imparted this wisdom about the Christofascist charlatans: She told me of traveling circus tent "revival meetings" where she, attending as a young tyke... (digression: She was in her early 90's so this was late 1800's!)
They pulled through towns, bankrupting their easily duped rural marks with fire and brimstone, end of the world fables. They left with hard working families meager earnings, believing Jeebus would take them to heaven next week.
When the likes of these televangelists cameo that Cheshire cat grin knowing how much Ill earned dollars they fly home in their personal jets, it makes me want to
Now let us pray: "God save me from your followers. Amen."

19. Your bible is a badly edited apocryphal misinterpretation of dubiously sourced documents in three

quite different languages most of which were written some considerable time after the events and persons referred to existed. There are numerous significant contradictions no matter the preferred version and printing. Words in Aramaic are seldom used the same way as in Greek or Latin, let alone 15th century formal English. Then there is the material excised or hidden by the Roman Church or edited during the Council of Nicaea.

As a literal set of rules it leaves much to be desired. A a legal text is suffers from frequent contradiction of meaning, confounding sources and over-reaching precedents.

A book of metaphors written largely for and by a nomadic herding culture leaves much out when applied to a complex world of many nations, cultures and beliefs.

My response when presented with the question "Have you taken Christ into your heart as your savior?" is to ask whether that would be Classic Christ or New Christ? I say this as a son of the progressive wing of the Presbyterian Church.
