Re: Thank you, Rev. Furuya!

"Lack of civiliity is a problem in this culture and it was quite evident in the exchanges with Rev Furuya. I was embarrassed by it. " I was too.

"A forum is not an arena just for promoting your viewpoint, but one which is used for debate." I agree, however, does the debate require people be rude and make personal attacks? I think it reminds me more of the direction the political discourse in this country. I simply don't believe spirited and intellectual discourse on topics requires the rude behaviors of others. My 2 cents.
