*** As noted, a YES or NO is only required for the question "are you going to apologize for your regular indulgences in name calling" Conceding is automatic when the first question is evaded.<quoted text>Translation: The law can't defend individual elements of itself so why should I assume I have to.
We lock away murderers. We take away their civil rights. We know why we do it, but your argument style would just demand that they have all their civil rights.
We also limit the rights of the mentally ill and engage in practices that effectively deny rights to the poor. Some of those acts are with good reason while others are efforts to exploit the labor force.
Life is complicated. Homosexuality is not a sound bite issue. It crosses into the area of mental disorder whether you like it or not. It crosses into the area of repressing the poor whether you like it or not.
Whether or not you consider homosexuality an obsessive/compulsive disorder, a "normal" personality akin to being a "nerd" or something that is an actual evolutionary trait, you'll have to address the politics. And politics is a very cagy animal.
So considering politics, are you going to apologize for your regular indulgences in name calling or will you simply concede the point that you're a fear mongering, rabble rousing, weasel who does nothing in sound-bite increments?
A simple YES or NO is all that is required!
Thank you for driving that car off the cliff and once again, proving my point far better than I ever could alone.
Welcome to sound bite land, Mr. Parse Bunny!
