    It's too far away for a weeknight. Can we provide questions beforehand?

    Way to go Jason, especially opposing a Shepard in his pasture with his flock! Their whooping and hollering for Jesus reminded me of a sporting event.

    Kudos to Jason for diving into "the belly of beast" and attempting to shed some light into those lost souls!

      Ralph might be willing to take you. If I knew your email I could copy you on the thread. He says "If Kevin wants to go also, I can drive as well. I have a two seater so I can [take] one other".

    Nah, all "they" have is apologetics. If they ever come up with evidence, then there will be something to discuss. But until then that's literally a discussion without a topic.
