This exchange is very interesting and reminds me a lot a conversation in
the Book of Mormon between a believer, Amulek, and another man named
Zeezrom.  The conversation was very similar.  It's always striking to me
to see conversations from the book of Mormon play out in real life.
People often don't even know their arguments were played out a long time
ago (1830 if you're not LDS, or more than 2000 years ago if you are).

I think you've done a good job defending your belief.  Despite the often
liberal tone on this list (and maybe anti-tea party bias!), there are
people here who also feel as you do in this area.
