I want to thank those who have commented on Facebook, on this blog, on a couple of (rather hostile) message boards, and on the Deseret News site itself regarding my little newspaper column of yesterday.
The comments have been helpful. Even (and perhaps especially) the ones that view me as a blithering idiot, a philosophical naïf, and an obviously mistaken if not altogether irrational fool.
None of them, thus far, has addressed my actual position.
But that’s useful to see. And it suggests ways in which I can clarify and justify that position when I lay it out more fully in the future (and am not limited to roughly 730 words).
Sincere thanks to all.
