36. And I'm merely claiming that one may approve of action A...
And I'm merely claiming that one may approve of action A, yet disapprove of one particular reason (amongst many, many reasons) that leads to that action.

I approve of marriage. I do not approve of dowries. The second does not imply disapproval of the first, nor does it condemn my belief in the right of marriage. However, I do see how one may easily confuse the two though... :shrug:

(I do think your most generous allowance of my abhorring a factor is irrelevant... but if you believe it strengthens your argument somehow, have at it.)
