No I don't. *You* think I mean it about one issue only, but that is because you don't like what I stand for on that issue.
Your comments about Colin are very clearly ad hominem
No they are not. The issue is what Colin believes or doesn't believe and that is what is being discussed. To argue that someone's beliefs put them outside the bounds of "catholicity" when they claim to be catholic is not ad hominem.
It is ad hominem to attack someone like you are doing, impuning my motives and character for raising the issue.
I'm quite clear what I mean by orthodoxy - there are enough clues on the site. I think you might be slightly confused though as to what I mean by orthodoxy, but that could be because you don't like what I stand for.
And anyway, the issue was Slee's catholicity, not his orthodoxy.
But then, Slee is one of those "catholics" who thinks he's a catholic but is absolutely nothing of the sort.
Or, it could be (which is the point you're making) that there's something independent about the kind of parents that produce homosexual children which also makes them have more children then average (more children, greater chance of later ones being homosexual child).
Correlation does not equal causation.
Aren't you just curious a teensy-weensy bit as to why there is such a strong difference between different family backgrounds and same-sex behaviour?
That's not the same dataset as the indepth analysis was done on Tim. It's a much bigger (number of people questioned) survey which didn't include all the indepth questions on family life, all sexual partners etc.
Apples and pears.
