Great pull, Kat! LMAO-ROFL, etc.

Pop quiz: the linked video depicts-

a) A Religion 101 seminar at Loyola Marymount University in LA.

b) Confirmation class at your local parish.

c) A "small group breakout" at a Life Teen retreat.

d) A "guest speaker" session at SCRC in Anaheim, CA.

e) All of the above

Choose the best answer. Good luck.

N.B.- This pop quiz will not be graded, since that would be "too judgmental". Have a nice day!

P&B.

One thing I've learned in this life: nothing good can come of anything that requires you to put your chairs in a circle.

Isn't that facilitator head of the USCCB?

PaxetBonum said...

Look at related video, "Religion Matters- Meet Stanford Nutting"- it's just as batshit.

"I'm an adjunct"... "Church of Whatever"... "Thou shalt not 'thou shalt not' "... "Oprah likes him!"

These guys are very good.

Now let's facilitate together!

There is no right, and in this class, there is no teaching!

Reminds me of a Philosophy of Religion class I had years ago...except every Friday we had a different preacher from a different church come in and give a talk. The Scientologist guy and the Unitarian lady were by far the most interesting...

LOL. That was a flashback indeed. I took a personal ethics class some years ago and the first 1'10" of this video is what I heard almost verbatim. I changed classes, since I didn't want to pay for other people's opinions.

Kat, in the vein of NP's comment, I pray that you and your loved ones will be safe from the hurricane. Keep us updated.

This video is both hilarious and deeply sad (on both counts, because it's true). Too many American universities are closer to being pseudo-intellectual circuses than institutions of true learning.

College actually did seriously mess up my thinking for a good while. For years after college, I literally lost my love of fiction and poetry, due to deconstructionist/Marxist/radical feminist English professors (English was my major). According to them, there were no absolutes-- other than those of their pet theories, of course.

Two professors were beacons of sanity for me on that (overall) campus of lunacy-- Dr. Thomas Woods, professor of English and conservative (gasp!) practicing Catholic, and Dr. Michael Patton, atheist philosophy professor, who, his atheism notwithstanding, believed in the existence of objective truth and the importance of logic and logical argumentation. Dr. Patton unwittingly helped me to find God. Dr. Woods helped me to find the Church.

(A "spirit of Vatican II" priest taught the RCIA classes and helped to eventually drive me *from* the Church and into Protestantism. Sigh. It took years, but least I'm finally back Home in the Church again!)

You slam GKC... now you DIE. >_>;

So maybe I'm a little touchy about my Catholic author-crushes. >_>;
