Mentally Worked Out

Posted by Zarayna , in Life, Random babbling Jun 02 2012 · 112 views

So, yesterday was the graduation/promotion night for my homeschool group, although no one was graduating this year. It seems that I'm getting into a pattern: everytime I'm down at the church where we holds the graduation and a few other events, I find myself in intense religious discussion/debate with a friend. Comes from being the only Catholic in a Protestant group, I suppose. This time, however, my dad got into religious debate with three of the dads as well. In our defense, we didn't initiate said debates: the dads had been meaning to talk religion since last year, and my friend keeps bringing up religion, not me.

To make a long story short, I got bored and started listening to the debate my dad was in. And before you knew it, I had pretty much supplanted my dad in the debate. Needless to say, we were probably the last peopple to leave. In terms of explaining, I think I did well. I doubt I had to back down on a single point, whereas often my opponents were forced to hurriedly change the subject. So I'm happy.

By then I had gotten nicely worked out intellectually, which feels pretty good, almost like physically working out. The bad side? My mouth is still a little tired from talking so much. :|

Did the Protestant groups also spend a lot of time arguing among themselves?

'Cause that's also something us Protestants do.

No, I haven't seen many debates on religion going on between the various types of Protestants. I believe at some times in the debate they were divided among each other.

Sorry to revive an old entry, but you have no idea how funny this is to a person from Ireland.

Why so?

Let's say it's complicated and leave it at that, so that we don't get into topics BZP's rules don't allow. :P

It fits the whole Catholicism vs Protestantism stereotype very well.

E: And yeah, Vorex is right, this could go bad ways fast. Better leave it at that.

Turning

Did you see them going off to fight?
Children of the barricade that didn't last the night.
They were schoolboys, never held a gun,
Fighting for a new world that would rise up like the sun.
Where's that new world now the fighting's done?

If there was a slap for every reference you didn't get, Zar, you would be like a walking bruise.
