I don't know what your point of view is. I've asked you twice to elaborate on it in your own words, and you really haven't yet. You tossed out some statements that I questioned, and you've yet to defend any of them. No disrespect, but saying you believe in something or agree with someone is all well and good but least be prepared to explain why you feel the way you do, in your own words, when questioned. You have not done this to any of the four questions I asked you. You say you want to have an intelligent debate, but intelligent debate should not include lines like "I don't need to defend anything to you" when a questionable statement is actually questioned.

Here are the questions I asked you, to refresh your memory:
1. How did he "misrepresent America's culture and heritage with his remarks"? You appeared to contradict yourself in your reasoning, and I asked for clarification.
2. How was the US "founded on Christianity"? I asked for an example, you merely said about 78% of the population is Christian, and that some of the founding fathers were Puritans or Pilgrims or "nonconformist".
3. How is President Obama "trying to make this country secular"? I also asked how it wasn't in your view, despite fact that he used the traditional (though not Constitutionally required) phrasing "so help me God" in his Oath of Office (both of them).

I'm not breaking your balls here. I would really like to know how any of these statements make sense to you.
