Have any of you notcied a particular way most fanatics argue with you about Catholicism. I have and it has been with fanatic Protestants. I belonged to a Protestant forum at one time. I left not to long ago after agruing for over 4 or 5 months. Now let me warn you of how they try to spin things. The first thing you usually encounter is that they cherry pick things and then take them out of context. Then of course they build themselves a strawman so then they can pretend to beat you at an arguement, but they really do not. When they build up a strawman they usually take your own words out of context and try to bring the arguement into a whole different subject that has absolutely nothing to do with the real subject. All of these things are not an accident (at least with my encounters). They do it on purpose, so that they do not have to admit defeat. They can not win a logical arguement with you. So they take up these actions. It just shows how incompetent they really are. So do not let them do any of these things. Tell them to stop taking things out of context, build up strawmen, cherry picking, etc.
Now if you want to know the solution here it is. In fact their are two ways. They both involve confronting them about their cherry picking, building strawmen etc. One way is to rip the main core of their arguement to shreds without mercy, but please it is best to do it in an honorable way. Usually after you do that the rest of their arguement just capitulates. Two, is to meticulously disarm every point of their arguement. This proves to be a very effective defensive method.
Be warned though that fanatics will ignore what you say, even the facts, and even the logic. When they start to feel threatened they usually start to do these things more frequently. So after you invlove any of the two methods above it results in this. This just keeps going in a merry-go-round until they stop the cherry picking, etc. Only after they do that do they stop acting like fools. I hope this helps any one who reads it God speed.
