As the board owner, I'd like to apologize to you for the rhetoric and coarseness being displayed by both sides on this position. I can only ask that they moderate and control themselves, but it seems that the argument and the posturing is as important in some of these exchanges as the content. I wish all would conduct themselves differently, but until I see some "real" profanity, threats or extremely demeaning remarks, I'm going to let this continue. Perhaps your request and my response will help, but we'll just have to see.
Just FYI, I do not hold either of the two (2) positions being argued as my personal beliefs and nothing expressed here is an indication of my personal views.
Thanks for your gentile and mature thoughts on this thread.
