Raphael in response to my critique of his post on feminism and the family unit:
"I appreciate your critique, and I can accept that the totality of my statement of feminism being a causal decline of all the points I mentioned was asking for trouble. Had this post been something more carefully considered I think I should have weighed my own criticisms a little more carefully."
That's why I added him to the blog roll after this little fiasco. His willingness to listen and to engage in a thoughtful and respectful manner. I may not always agree with him, but I can always respect him and will listen to what he has to say, because he affords me the same.
Proof that respectful discourse can produce a desirable result.
