    Hiding. Sounds like an accusation, Jerry. I'm hiding nothing. I archive posts in Word documents... something that YOU suggested I do. I don't know exatly where the post is. Feel free to comment on it in THIS thread.

    It probably sounds like an accusation because it's an accusation. Link or you're running away from being smacked down on that thread by the Barron.

    Baron's not here. You are. If you cannot debate the position yourself, then whatever happened when my post was originally posted concerns me not. Either discuss the issue or not. Your choice. You want to play some of your ridiculous games, you will not find a player in me.

    No links. It's my own material. I wrote it. Any sources are discussed in the post. So, you have a choice. Discuss it or not.

    Here's where I'm coming from: you gave that post as a quote. Not in the context of being something you're saying now, but in the context as part of a previous discussion, like a sound clip. That's just fine, but just as I would demand a source had you provided a sound clip, so that everyone can access the while conversation, so is a link necessary now.

    See, here's the thing:

    We're not saying homosexuality is the same thing as polygamy.

    We're saying that both are protected from discrimination under the law.

    Just like when you people pipe up with "oh yeah but the bible forbids shellfish and mixed fabrics". You're not saying shellfish and mixed fabrics are the same as homosexuality, you're saying that all 3 are forbidden in biblical law.

    Bringing up polygamy is a test to see if someone truly is for equality or if they're just presenting any argument which seems to work to get their way; just like when you people bring up random crap forbidden in scripture, you just want to see if we're cherry-picking. Same.....exact...thing. It's an integrity test.

    So go ahead and reiterate how homosexuality is not polygamy. We already agree with that and then go on to bring up polygamy.

    I placed the post in a quote because it was posted before, indicating that it was not something new that I just wrote. The quote is in it's entirety, with the exception of one line that was directed to YOU. Was it argued before? Yes. I don't remember the debate. I've reposted the comment about 4-5 times over the past 2 years, and it has been discussed each time, sometimes more extensively than others. From my recollection, I do not recall you discussing it, though one reason I researched and wrote the post was because it was something that you always asked about. So, here's your chance.

    As far as the post, I'll have to do a search. The files I keep on my own posts, have been, at least for the past 2 years or so, in Word docs. I'm going to be logging off shortly, so if the thread is THAT important to you, either you can find it, or it needs to wait until tomorrow.

    You know I do not argue from an equality position, but from a individual/family/society benefit position. To me, the equality argument is far weaker, and more self-serving, not how I view GM. You know this and have known this for more than 4 years. This is not our first rodeo. My post on polygamy takes an individual/family/society benefit position, not an equality position, so the discrimination argument has nothing to do with what I presented.
