You're constructing straws again. I don't want a theological doctrine. I want solid *reasons* and *justifications* for having certain convictions. Is this making sense to you yet, Ken? Those who crave theologies don't *need* reasons and justifications.

I didn't even address your statement about the distinctions between Marxists and liberals on the abortion question. What I *did* do was call you on your hypocritical statements about Marxists universally upholding "rights" such as free speech, even though you attempted to squelch my free speech by saying that the issue of abortion is beyond discussion.
