    Given the levels of pro and con debate that's gone on in this thread, the poll results seem somewhat skewed, don't you think? You might even say the majority of 'No' voters are unable or unwilling to defend their positions.

    Jeez.
    Our conversation was getting very lengthy, I agree, but that doesn't mean you should just quit and run away.

    How would I know whether I like it or not when I haven't seen it?

    It's possible I've missed it I suppose, but I don't think so. I'm certainly not going to trawl back through over 600 posts on a wild goose chase. But please, if you explained it you'll remember what you wrote and when, won't you? So it will be relatively easy for you to find. Get to it...

    Nope. He won't.
    Him and I went through this exact same conversation a few pages ago.

    Some of us have been through this crap on this board already, perhaps more than once. I participated in a thread where I explained why Christianity doesn't approve of homosexuality. We looked at a lot of scripture. We dug deep into the original Greek and Hebrew and the meanings of the original words. My chief opponent in the debate wiggled and squirmed 20 different ways in an effort to convince me that Scripture doesn't mean what it says, and he failed and had to resort to other arguments.

    Blackdog was also involved in that long, long thread. I'm not surprised he doesn't want to have to go over all that stuff again... I don't want to either. Look it up with the search function and read it if you're intrested, it will fill you in on more details than you probably want to hear.

    I've done it from the opposite end and it really does get boring. In the end with people I got along along with we agreed to disagree.

    I am interested, but I'm not prepared to spend an inordinate amount of time searching for something that someone else says exists and I only have their word for it. If you think there have been posts made in the past which explain religious intransigence on homosexuality, you should remember them well enough to make finding them a trivial matter for you. You find them and I'll read them. I await with bated breath.

    Why are you so mean?
    Conservatives telling the truth is routinely characterized as "being mean."

    Do you have a counterargument? Calling me "mean" isn't an argument.

    Meh I get Goshin's point. To sit there and research, search all the points/issues over and over again is very time consuming and tedious. BTW I totally disagree with him.
