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.
