    here and I think that where the debate is explicitly metaphysical, it's absolutely appropriate to respond in the way you outline.  You will never get me to accept the supernatural of any form, but then so long as it isn't interfering with policy I could care less if someone else believes in the supernatural.  I think it's odd that someone like Obama believes in something like the resurrection and might get in a discussion about it should it come up, but it's not a discussion I go out of my way to have.  Apart from the supernatural, I do share the ethics outlined by thinkers like Jesus and Buddha.  This diary is referring to those cases where oppressive policy is being discussed and the NTSF appears derailing the discussion.
