For whatever it's worth--which is probably nothing-- I prefer inquiry over advocacy. For this reason, I have a high bar when it comes to accepting advocacy.
When I see that kind of behavior, I assume the blogger is either a fool or a liar. In either event, that blogger's thoughts are not worth taking seriously.
A major reason I respect bloggers like Russ and Toby is that they are independent thinkers who are capable of creating opportunities for inquiry through well thought-out advocacy. Whatever you think of their positions, the debates they advocate are well worth embracing.
Continuous learning is what makes us human.
