Neat trick for ex-pentecostals and charismatics
« on: May 31, 2013, 03:29:06 PM »
I won't beat a dead source horse with more links to glossalalia, aka speaking in tongues. I will say it's proven to be a learned trait, and a trait you can use to learn some fundies. Speaking in tongues is a gift from and evidence of the baptism of the holy spirit, Christ's brother-in-law who always crashes on your couch. The next time someone uses this "language" as proof against you, simply blaspheme the holy spirit (the unforgivable sin). Surprise! You can still speak in tongues, although you'll feel like an complete lunatic doing it. It's either a cheap parlor trick of the mind, or the holy spirit is as laid back as the Dude.....

I don't see why anyone thinks speaking a random tongue that doesn't even need to make sense is something special.

For example:
Avasharasharaparukatiuta hasharubatietatupia

Do I have any gift from God? lol
