Embarrassing when even our side can't help falling into a litany of genetic fallacies.  I expect it out of activists on the left, but my goodness...

I'm reminded of the professor in the Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe.  “Logic! Why don’t they teach logic at these schools?”   Basically several generations being taught what to think, rather than how to think.

Seriously?  Did he honestly expect to get anywhere?

Here is something that works -- treat LGBTQ people like normal unsaved people.  Talk with them about something more than sex.  Disprove their canned responses by acting like they are real people and caring about them as people  instead of demoniacs or something like that.  Love that sinner like Jesus does.

Your efforts to talk with them about Jesus might get somewhere if you do.

"Our task today is to tell people — who no longer know what sin is...no longer see themselves as sinners, and no longer have room for these categories — that Christ died for sins of which they do not think they’re guilty." - David Wells

"Forsake the foolish and live...He that reproveth a scorner getteth to himself shame: and he that rebuketh a wicked man getteth to himself a blot.  Reprove not a scorner lest he hate thee..." Prov. 9:6-8

Not unlike our current CiF, a Twitter war that probably shouldn't have happened.  Treat fools like fools--it's the biblical injunctive.

The best I think you could to on Twitter is to ask them, per Deming, to actually provide some evidence for their position.  In my (not humble enough) opinion, Brown fails miserably at this.  He simply throws back accusations instead of keeping his eye on the ball.  I'm no fan of Twitter--the first four letters are indicative all too often--but you can get somewhere if you simply mind your ps and qs.
