    And I think that when you are presented with with a simple conflict, you resort to personal insults...because you have nothing to stand on, you have no point.

    Thanks.

    Seeing that the majority people of this nation, are primarily Christian.
    So? What?

    You want people to sympathize with your equality argument?
    I couldn't care less if they do.

    You try to get on their good side.
    Lol, nonsense at its best. You don't beg for rights. You take them and **** what the rest think.

    That way lobby efforts for legal equality, can actually be successful.

    Yes, because attacking people, who may or may not believe that stuff, is not constructive.
    Nor is it appropriate for high school students.

    I see this as building bridges and changing minds.....
    He didn't attack the beliefs of all Christians. He attacked the beliefs of some Christians and there's nothing wrong with that. You attack the beliefs that make bullies bully. I doubt you would have a problem with him attack white supremacist beliefs or beliefs that being small in stature is a sign weakness that should be exploited. This is the same thing except that some people think that irrational beliefs held by Christians should be immune.

    I am not gay. And if I was it would make no difference, you keep proving that when it comes to debating this topic, you can't deal with it.

    Again, if you are a "christian" and condemn homosexuality, you are a hypocrite.

    I don't think the answer to bullying, is more bullying. It's wrong period. No matter who does it and for how good a reason it might be. No one's mind will be changed when they are attacked and ridiculed.

    I haven't read past this point. Maybe someone else said this already or maybe it's a shaky argument. I cannot think of anything that would harden my resolve in my position more than someone insulting my values, though, to be clear, I am a supporter of gay rights.
    Great post, Gina. You and I have talked about this, before. No matter what you believe, attacking people and putting them on the defensive only makes them dig in more. Many of the attitudes that have changed in me have done so because people like you, and others, were willing to hear me out first.

    Yeah, it reminds me of when white supremacists get offended when people point out the irrationality of their beliefs. I don't think Savage should call anyone names, but his comments about people's illogical picking and choosing when it comes to the Bible were spot on.

    Pointedly, you want legal equality, you have to gain the acceptance of a lot of people.
    Pissing all over their beliefs, is not one way to get that.

    No, you said he "implied" something. Implication and inference are two different things. You inferred something meaning you have no idea if he implied what you inferred. Got it yet?

    Again, you keep missing it, the attack is upon the message first and foremost. Second, the attack on the person comes when they refuse to see the irrationality of holding to their view.

    Those kids are old enough to be challenged on their views since they are capable of acting out with those views.
