quote:
To call a UNIVERSAL practice "an appeal to popularity" in the sense of a fallacious argument has got to be the nuttiest thing I've ever heard. What are the arguments on YOUR side? You falsely equate a sexual aberration which is incapable of normal sex or normal reproduction with the normal heterosexual disposition and you call that an argument?
Poisoning the well.
Appeal to common practice.
Begging the question.

Like our new-found acceptance of homosexuals, this is a relatively new occurence, but I think an improvement.
Like every western country nowadays, tolerance or not depends on specific areas. For example, in the southern states you are most likely find more tolerance on college campuses than the surrounding local communities. While I have not been to that green island of yours on the other side of the big pond, I suspect very much that the tolerance level there are somewhat similar to what we see here in the states.

Agree to disagree!!
I don't mean to intrude and in no way am I trying to offer any middle ground, but after 2 threads and almost 600 posts, can't we just agree to disagree?

Re: Agree to disagree!!
Chances are that this bill will get shot out of the sky before it can even make a landing. And even if it somehow gets through, the country can expect to have court battles for years to come.
It is now clear that people like faith will not give into the immorality of gay union. It is also clear that there is no chance on Mount Olympus that you will agree that gay marriage will destroy the very fabric of society as we know it.
Arach, after over a dozen posts of asking faith to clarify, don't you think it's pretty clear she's not going to no matter what?

Yes, I tried that. I pointed out the specific logical fallacies she was using. As far as Faith is concern, her arguments are not weak at all.
