By TylerR Oct 31 2014 Matthew VinesHomosexualityMichael Brown asks: “. . . why are ‘gay Christian’ activists and theologians so unwilling to debate the issues publicly?" 809 reads There is 1 Comment Maybe.... Bert Perry - Fri, 10/31/2014 - 10:40am .....because Vines' arguments simply don't hold up when exposed to the light of Scripture and logic, and Matthew Vines knows it? Really, if Brown's characterization of Vines' response to the challenge of debate is fair and honest, what Vines is asking as a prerequisite to debate is a concession on some of the points to be debated. Sorry, but that isn't how debate works. It reminds me of a discussion I had with an evolutionist friend, where he asked me why I didn't concede some points. My answer was simply that I did not see any argument presented where I needed to. Aspiring to be a stick in the mud.
