Yes, it is what is driving the argument, but shouldn't mature, rational discussion look beyond that? Nobody is saying to forget them. Rather, the issue is that emotionalizing the issue doesn't actually end up solving the problem - it simply raises the temperature but provides no illumination. I didn't realize it was so difficult to understand that a solution is only reached when we can dispassionately use our intelligence and reason to dissect the problem.
