Would you please be so kind as to explain to me why ..."

You consider that a demand? That is the most incredible statement I
read in this entire thread. If I had demanded an answer, I would have
clearly indicated it. I am not bashful, as you may have noticed. I
simple asked him to explain why such behavior would be morally
acceptable. At that point he made the accusation that I had
attributed such statements, directly or indirectly to him. I neither
did, nor is there any evidence to support the claim that I had. Both of
you choose to conveniently sidestep that simple fact. Although to his
credit, he did explain his feelings on the matter.

Now, if I asked you to explain the moral justification for the
Thirteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution, would I be
accusing you of actually having written it? You don't think things
through do you?
