    Absolutely.

    I believe we should change the parental consent exception for most underage marriages too, but that is OT.

    Keep your religion out of other people's marriages.

    Well please, post a link or two instead of making empty accusations. I would love to see this hypocrisy. It sounds to me like you and Oscar just want to discredit me in order to protect one of your conservative buddies who has been caught telling a few lies.

    No I don't want to discredit you. I do however know we all do this at times. I ignore people at some point as well.

    So for you to try and take some kind of high road on this is just wrong.

    I think you need to look up the definition of hypocrisy.

    That aside, I disagreed because when mac said "ask for it" he was talking about the law. If you support same sex marriage, then you are asking for a change in the law.

    As far as the other case, you came into a thread and took the question of "how is abortion comparable to homosexuality?" and made it into "if you support homosexuality you have to support incest because that is equal rights", that is clear as day distortion.

    I'm not a liar. I'm not taking any kind of high road. He accused me of making an appeal to nature fallacy when he is the one who has made the appeal to nature fallacies. I simply defended myself and asked him to substantiate the claims he made. The fact that he is ignoring me now is just proof that he couldn't back up what he said and the fact that I could post an example of him making a consistent appeal to nature fallacy is proof of his deceit.

    He made the initial accusation and he couldn't back it up and so he is now trying to ignore me.

    seems like a few pages back, you were caught trying to tell BD and myself what we think and feel. when called on it...you ignored it. now you are attacking Mac for ignoring you. That, my friend, is where your hypocrisy lies.

    accusing Mac of doing what you, yourself, are guilty of.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.
