Sorry, but your actions are no different from theirs. Their behavior and yours should not be justified by the lowest common denominator.
I find these exchanges very tiresome and exhausting. There is so much more to celebrate in the actions of our common ancestors their bravery, their convictions and their desire to do right in their own minds and according to what they understood of God's will.
I like to find the heroic spirit and elevate these men rather than cursing the other sides grandfather.
As I stated to Alice, in my response, I hold neither your views or Baby Boy's. I try as much as I can to understand the viewpoints of these people in their times.
It is my sincere wish that all sides will moderate their rhetoric or at the very least disengage from this endless and in my opinion pointless discussion.
