Anyway, I think I've my answer.
    side issue but nice try in attempting to find an angle of personal attack and pretending that it has anything to do with the topic we are actually debating

    I think a person's ideology is relevant in political debate. People are commonly asked if they are Christians or what religion they are. People are asked what country they are from, and what political party they ascribe to. Generally, people do not hide those things and it gives others an idea of where they are coming from. In a debate about gay rights, someone might even be asked if they are gay - and that's not a personal attack unless context dictates otherwise.

    It's not a personal question, and I've no idea how you misconstrue it into a personal attack.

    I understand your argument but think its flawed.

    You miss the entire point I was making, which is you will not be able to use my religious or political beliefs as a way to attack me or turn the argument in any direction (Side track it) because I will not allow you that opportunity by not providing those beliefs to you so lets just stay on the topic and you can guess all day long what my religious beliefs are while I voice my opinion on the debate topic.

    now do you see my argument ?
