The Phone Call



Best and worst of Ferdinand .....
Best
Ferdinand: We don't really say 'theist' in Alabama. Here, you're either a Christian, or you're from Afghanistan and we fucking hate you.
Worst
Ferdinand: Everyone from British is so, like, fucking retarded.

RE: The Phone Call
That gave me chills

Wind's in the east, a mist coming in
Like something is brewing and about to begin
Can't put my finger on what lies in store
but I feel what's to happen has happened before...

RE: The Phone Call
Is this for real? Not a couple of actors? Maybe it's been awhile since I've argued with a family member, but this just sounded...fishy. Please forgive my skepticism.
If real I want some follow up on this kid (sounded young)!

I don't think it's real. I think it's just a representation of the sort of call a lot of people go through.

I don't actually know though so don't take my word as (get ready for it) ........ gospel (yeah bitches, I made the worst joke ever).

Yes that was my take...not a real phone conversation...but very similar to what my grandma and others in that branch of the family said to me.

I had just assumed it was scripted.

To be fair, they're passing on what was taught to them. Until someone breaks the chain, it's pretty much self-perpetuating. Believe me, I know. Undecided

Right.... and they did the best they could with the knowledge they had.

Well, if that's the moral standard... doing the best one can, then children should never be disciplined because they're doing the best they can with the knowledge they have. Trouble is, parents don't allow their innocent children the same leeway they afford themselves.

So my argument is that if the child has to take full responsibility and punishment for not following some arbitrary, baseless rules then the parents should take full responsibility and punishment for not breaking the chain.

As someone who was raised by religious parents, I agree that it's ridiculous. I am thankful that my parents are more happy for the fact that I have an informed opinion about the world than they are shocked that I'm an atheist.
