Can you argue from the opposite political point of view than the one you hold?


A friend challenged me tonight, listen closely when someone is defending a political view that you don't agree with, then ask them if you can reverse rolls. I spent a week with a dear friend and we debated Politics and Religion heatedly. I hope I listened to dear friend well enough to debate from her point of view. My challenging friend says you have more credibility if you can prove you have heard what the other side has said. .

    Wow, to be blindsided by the abortion issue is really harsh. Seems like you learned a good lesson though.

    Sometimes I do find out I am wrong. That is why I like to examine the original information to the fullest extent. Painful as it is I would rather find the truth than play all the cards and find I miscounted.
