Back to study.
Now THAT was actually witty. I try not to cheer as from a peanut gallery - but that was a good one Aussie.

Seriously, read through this thread from beginning to end. Amazing.

Anyone have a theory as to why?
Oh please. Have you forgotten all the people who've equated homosexuality with disease, polygamy, sex with animals?

If I read through this thread your name would pop up on that list quite a bit. It would also come up on the list of people who've repeatedly ignored questions asked of you...

Show me which post you're most proud of. The one in which you connected a series of statements together to establish a proposition rather than just contradicting someone.
yeah, because that would be fun. What's the point of us going back through each other's posts?

To see who's engaging in honest debate and who's just tossing rocks from the weeds. As for dodging questions...look at Martha's posts. They almost all end in questions marks. Don't you guys have any answers?
And YOU seem to be avoiding a VERY simple question. The best rational for same-sex marriage posted by you in 30 pages of posts.

What, status quo?

I've answered every argument posted, so please point it out to me...

I don't think I ever mentioned anything about sex with animals. Actually, I'm quite certain I did nothing of the sort.

About disease - I said we are ALL diseased. It is called original sin.

About polygamy - I was using it as an example of another type of marriage outside of "one man and one woman." I have also explained my intention on using this comparison numerous times. And none of it was meant to be insulting.

BVS - you really do seem rather hostile. Seriously. Relax a bit.

Sorry, I missed that. Which was your most salient post in favor of same-sex marriage? Or if you're just humble, Martha's.

Hello everyone,

A friendly note from your moderators...please keep it civil. Everyone take a deep breath and try to remember that there are real flesh and blood people behind the screen and that they have real feelings and valid emotions. It's understandable that discussions like this draw strong opinion, but please try to treat people with the same respect and civility as you would if you were face to face. OK?

Thanks!

That post wasn't strictly about you.

Don't confuse me being passionate with hostility. Excuse me if I get upset with people using God to justify their own prejudices...

Try equality. I know it's not a popular stance in today's society, for we all want to feel superior to someone.

Or if that doesn't work, how about the real simple, WHO THE HELL IS IT HURTING?

Pick one...

Argument is an intellectual process. Contradiction is just the automatic gainsaying of any statement the other person makes.
(short pause)
A: No it isn't.
M: It is.
A: Not at all.
M: Now look.
A: (Rings bell)
I'm afraid my 5 minutes is up.

That's your return? Wow, well I guess if you have mob rule behind you, you don't really need to debate.

All right INDY, I think you've made your point, and with more than a hint of the same tone you're complaining about yourself. Not that I don't understand your frustration.

It's hard enough to keep threads on this topic civil even when the bulk of the responses are carefully thought through--it's pretty much impossible when people slide into rapid-fire exchanges of ridicule and smartass one-liners. If that's all there is left to "discuss," then there's really no point in this thread continuing.

And this tactic of browbeating people for ignoring questions is really getting old. When threads move this fast, it's easy to miss a question whose importance might not have seemed that central to you to begin with. If you really want a question anwered, please quote it and directly re-address it to the person you want an answer from, rather than jumping to conclusions about why they haven't and using that as a battering ram.

Well I apologize, but I've repeated my questions more than once, and I've pointed out the fact that I was waiting as well. There really wasn't more I could have done short of PMing the person, and honestly I don't feel like I should have to do that. The questions were pertinent and no where close to the off topic stearings this poster took on other areas of this discussion. So honestly I'm not sure what else I could have done. I realize no one is required to answer the questions I pose to them, although I think it's hard to keep debate honest if you continually ignore certain questions.

But once again I apologize.
