David Quinn of the Iona Institute has retreated from an open civil online discussion, about the Iona Institute and Atheist Ireland and religious and atheist morality, and he has called me a virtual stalker for asking him questions about how Iona decides on its policies.
This is ironic because, when he recently sued RTE, he complained that calling Iona derogatory names was aimed at closing down open civil debate on the very issues that I am now trying to discuss with him. The two most recent questions which David has declined to answer are:
- You say Iona decides which Christian values to promote or not based on what makes most sense. What criteria do you use?
- You say Iona’s arguments re marriage are not even specifically Christian. Then what are they based on?
I have published below the relevant tweets between us over the past few weeks. I have answered all of the questions that David has asked me. If David wants to recommence discussing these issues I am happy to do so.
