This is the interview we promised with Shirley Phelps Roper from godhatesfags.com. Josh and I decided going in that we weren’t going to yell at her or try to argue too much. There didn’t seem to be a point in that… and it seemed to make more sense just to let her talk. So we did… for a while!
Don’t get me wrong, because in spots it gets pretty heated, mostly with her insulting our intelligence (or lack thereof).
Like most intense conversations, after it was over, Josh and I thought of a ton of things we should have or could have said to refute some of her ideas and scripture interpretations. But we didn’t, so oh well. It wasn’t about winning, because we weren’t trying to win and there was no way she was going to let us win.
Immediately after finishing, I was exhausted. I fell down on the floor and laid there for a few minutes. Then Josh and I went and had a few drinks. You might find you do the same thing after listening to the podcast. One thing I have learned is this: Crazy-talking people will wear you out.
Let us know what you think.
