Poor Argumentation in the Homosexuality Debate

"There's nothing I like less than bad arguments for a view that I hold dear." – Daniel Dennett

"Nothing" is a bit strong for me, but I appreciate the sentiment. Those following the exchange between this blog and Ambivablog should read this post at Heart, Mind, Soul, and Strength.

"It's difficult for me to read much of the debate over homosexuality without becoming annoyed at both sides, despite the fact that one of the sides is 'my' side. And it's not just the extremists throwing used condoms at priests on the left or picketing funerals on the right. Here are my pet peeves that you see often enough even among reasonable people."

Amen. Tolle, lege.

    Thank you for the link.

    Fwiw, about some of the recent posts between you & Amba, and the part about the realities of living life alone — I’m a celibate heterosexual with no intentions of remarrying. Lots of us divorced Christians who won’t remarry for the love of Christ and for the sake of his teachings are in that camp. I do NOT want anyone to make any mistake: it is a hard road on a level that is difficult to grasp unless you’ve walked it yourself. It’s only going to get harder as I age, but I’ve been alone for 10 years now. As for whether the temptations ever cease … eh, why should homosexuals be so special that their temptations should cease when nobody else gets that? All of us have lifelong struggles. It’s part of being human.
