In other words, anyone who disagrees with you or tries to offer any 
evidence of any other position, whether "a christian or a martian", is 
partisan and ought to be denied the right to put forward that evidence. 
Tory, I more or less agree with you on this issue, but I am embarrassed 
to agree with someone taking the attitude you do. Instead, please let 
them offer their evidence, and then give your counter-arguments which, 
if they are as strong as you claim, should settle the matter.
