A Pledge of Convictional Civility

Millard Erickson:

    I will not point out the presuppositions of another’s position without acknowledging that I have presuppositions myself.
    I will not contend that another’s view is historically conditioned without conceding that mine is also.
    I will be more concerned not to misunderstand or misrepresent others’ views than to claim that mine has been misunderstood or misrepresented.
    I will be more concerned that my language by fair and objective than I am that others’ language about me may not be.
    I will not caricature my opponent’s view to make my own appear more moderate.
    I will not employ ad hominem arguments.
    I will abstain from the use of pejorative language.
    I will not impute motives or emotions to others.
    I will think of intellectual arguments in terms of differences over ideas, not as personal disputes.

– from Convictional Civility: Engaging the Culture in the 21st Century
