It's your opinion that it's not your opinion that it's your opinion.
So now we know loyalty to your cult has requires you to be dishonest and lazy. You've picked the laziest "out" in the world (everything's "just your opinion" to the person who doesn't want to hear it). I was going to say, "Let me show you how it works" -- but the truth is that I *did* just show you, and it sailed right over your head.
One day you will face facts, as you refuse to do now. That is a certainty. I pray God it won't be too late.

No, the laziest "out" in the world is declare that your opinion is a fact and anyone who has a different opinion is a liar. If you can't at least get the point where you realize other people can honestly hold opinions you do not agree with then you will never be able to have a meaningful conversation with anyone but yes men (which wouldn't really be a meaningful conservation). There is nothing dishonest or lazy about calling an opinion and opinion no matter how much you dislike my doing so.
"I *did* just show you, and it sailed right over your head."
Wrong again. All you did was prepare to drag out a handfull of old straw men. I see no reason to go into debunking any of the specific straw men when you can't even tell what an opinion is in the more general case.
