Which is not AT ALL the same as "demean and diminish" the person. We all have different viewpoints about something. Sharing those arguments is what allows us to see something besides our own point-of-view. Kinda like those that ONLY watch FOX NEWS (sic) or MSNBC. You'll never get a full perspective of anything if all you're willing to do is hang out with those of like-mind. Heck, I used to be anti-gun. But through the enlightenment from others, I'm now an NRA life-member and a firearms instructor. Change CAN happen, so long as we're not so certain of our beliefs. I change my opinion often, based upon new information.
