    Y'all exercise the right to jump into discussions when you want and don't heckle other people when they jump in alongside you. This sort of thing would be self-defeating if you extended criticism of the behavior to most of the folks here ... and if you're unwilling to do that consistently then it's just unbecoming.

    Charles seems to make it his mission, Sam. I rarely see him posting anything other than his little swipes at us bad conservatives, and complaining about ad homs.

    Yes; I, in fact, have argued here and elsewhere that the standard most folks (including some here) are trying to apply to SSM would demand that they decry an and forbid any remarriage and virtually all divorce. So either there's a principle at work in the Gospel regarding fidelity and family or a whole bunch of fundamentalists aren't just hypocritical but codifying such hypocrisy into their bylaws and congregations.

    I'm not seeing that but, even were it true, it's the wrong response. People get to jump in -- doesn't mean you have to respond to 'em but all this "nanny" stuff is inconsistent and irrelevant.

    Would you be interested in a more in-depth discussion on this, probably in the Biblical Ethics section?

    I apologize but it wouldn't be anytime soon; I'm really not supposed to be spending all this time on here, anyhow and I expect the "Infrastructure Week" renovations at home to be done soon so I'll have no excuse to spend excess time at the PC.

    It's a sincere request and an important topic, though, so if you want to start a thread let me know and I'll contribute a post -- doubt it will be persuasive to many but it'll lay out what I believe to be a rational case consistent with the evolution of Christian marriage over the centuries.

    well, why don't you test your theory. Stop posting ad homs and see if he has less to talk about.
