KB in Iowa BS: Californians Oppose 'Prop 8' Gay Marriage Ban (2422* d) RE: BS: Californians Oppose 'Prop 8' Gay Marriage Ban 12 May 09

GfS, that post of yours from 4:28 was going quite well until the last line. I was gaining some respect for your input here but with that you completely lost me again. I find your attack dog tactics very off-putting. Ake obviously holds a position very similar to yours but I read his posts and consider his ideas because they are generally posted in a thoughtful manner. I try to do the same with yours but find it difficult.

I very much like to read and hear opinions that differ from mine. It requires me to defend my position in my own mind and sometimes I decide that was wrong. I am with LH on the idea of thoughtful debate. A barrage of attacks is not likely to change anybodys mind, it is rather the reasoned phrase that makes one stop to consider.

I have until now not addressed you directly, GfS, because I do not intend to get in a squabble with you. I realize I may have put myself in the cross-hairs with this but what the hey.
