Just recently got back from ours. For those of you not in the know, this is a campout where the men and boys of our church congregation join together for an overnight in the woods.
After getting my son to bed, I joined the group around the campfire for some lively conversation. For whatever strange reason, global warming came up (plenty of global warming deniers in this group), which led to a late night discussion from every topic from the fiscal stimulus, Barack Obama (is he a socialist?), health care, to unions. There were like five guys who took very conservative views on each of these topics, and I just kept saying, "No, that's not true", "No, that's not true" having trouble getting a word in. Until finally, with raised voice (sorry for all of you who were trying to sleep), interjected the dissenting, more liberal position.
Was this the right thing to do? Probably not, but sometimes I just can't help it.
