Sorry Cynics. No cynichat tonight. But to make it up to you I’ve posted a preview of tonight’s debate.
Let us forget that we are Baptists, Methodists, Catholics,
Presbyterians, or Freethinkers, and remember only that we are men
and women. After all, man and woman are the highest possible
titles. All other names belittle us, and show that we have, to a
certain extent, given up our individuality, and have consented to
wear the collar of authority — that we are followers. Throwing
away these names, let us examine these questions not as partisans,
but as human beings with hopes and fears in common.
