Your debating skills could you some help. By constantly attacking your opponent, rather than addressing the topic, you give the impression that you cannot address the topic to your favor. Are you a liberal? You can usually tell a liberal because not being able to engage in debate, they simply resort to attacking their opponent.

So, in your view, calling people who don't share your views of Lincoln's deity "idiots" is acceptable within your parameters of civilized debate? Perhaps you're the liberal. You come out with insults, and when you reap results in return, you counter with "he broke the rules of civilized debate by insulting!"
You accuse others of using the "Liberal" technique of attacking their opponents, rather than addressing the issues, but you started right out of the box in this thread, doing precisely that. You found their arguments laughable did you?
Why don't you get an historic perspective. If coming from a slaveholding State discredits thought, then most of human thought, honored today on all sides, would be discredited. Ancient Greece & Rome were both slaveholding States. So were ancient Egypt, Babalon, Persia, Israel, etc.. So really was all of medeival Europe. Your anti-slavery rant, 137 years after it ceased to be an issue in America, pretty well types you as one with no sense of proportion on any historic issue.
It is not the defining issue of the ages. Open up your eyes.
