So, here we are, back to you "feeling strongly both ways" again, eh, lojbab?

Once again, your argument is with yourself, not with White Christian Israelites.  

Cary says:  "they're by temperament far more comfortable with the Old Testament ambiance", and you, a "liberal", then "interpret" this to mean exactly the opposite:

  "Cary said quite clearly that it was YOU who seemed to be insisting on the Old
  Testament rules that YOU do not keep"


Do you ever get embarassed when you make these 180 degree contradictory statements?  Or do you just not know that you do this?  Are you this STUPID, or this much pre-programmed?

Cary is accusing White Christian Israelites of sticking too close to the Old Testament, and you "interpret" this to mean that he's accusing Israelites of NOT "insisting on the Old Testament rules".

Do you ever even notice that your "difference of opinion" is usually with yourself?
