I really could care less about his attempt at exclusion of non-G-dly people,
what ever that means.  But when you get into this whole list
of specific outsiders ("orthodox Jew or pro-life Christian"), yeah, I have a
problem with that.  That's how ethnic cleansing starts, and IMHO, that's
something quite worthy of speaking out against.

Maybe there's an exception for him since he'll probably attract somewhere
south of 15 partners in this endeavor (I'd suspect closer to 0), but that
really doesn't make it anywhere near OK.

Anyway, no big deal, people have license to disagree, that's what makes the
world an interesting place.  I just find this particular position
particularly distasteful.
