Did you notice that Steyn's audience is international and not primarily Christian - he made a point not to lapse into scripture or villify people as evil. Hmmmm, wonder why?
I did. And I prefer Steyn's style, to say the least. And lest you or others think I defend or align myself with those who would refer to all their opponents on this issue as evil, let me be clear: I can't stomach that sort of argument and demonization. Period. But I accept that the extreme ugliness--from both sides--is part of life on public debate forums, especially when dealing with deeply emotional and divisive issues such as this.
My sarcasm was aimed at those here who've become such obsessive defenders of legalistic processes that they reflexively dismiss cogent arguments on behalf of Terri, like Steyn's, as being equivalent to ignorant extremism.
After a fresh night's sleep just reread my response, post #17 to you. Reads awfully huffy, irritated and defensive. Wasn't my intent. Sorry, didn't mean to get all haughty on you.
