Arguing With Loud Stupid People
Doesn't really get you anywhere, and if you are stupid enough to do it at all, do it for the lulz, not to change anybody.(Don't I give such good advice? >.>)
The more raving of a lunatic the guy is, the better. I once got into an argument with a Pentecostal style preacher. He went up to me, and told me that I needed to do something(Basically, my brother, who goes to this guys church was stupid and disclosed private financial matters to this guy). So, you know, in the most respectful way possible, I told him to fuck off and mind his own business. Apparently, this request was not reasonable.
So he flips out, starts speaking in tongues, frothing at the mouth, you know what these people usually do... The whole time I'm staring at him like he's crazy mind you. Then after all of this, he licks his finger, draws a little cross on my forehead, and says "In the name of Jesus."
After a slightly awkward pause, I crack up laughing, and this just enrages him even more. He starts screaming and yelling at me, so I call him an idiot, and decide to make my exit. I get into the passenger seat of a car(I was riding with a friend), and a few seconds later, the crazy preacher shows up screaming more. The guy I was with wasn't thinking, and rolled the window down to hear what the preacher was screaming about. I tell the guy who is driving to just leave, because I understand the futility of trying to reason with the unreasonable.
On hearing this, the preacher opens up the passenger door, drags me out of the car, and starts smashing me against the objects in the area. The whole time he's doing it, I'm cracking up laughing and saying things like, "Turn the other cheek!" and "What would Jesus do?". He bangs me into my friends car(denting it too), and after this, I break free. I just keep making fun of him, and he eventually gives up. I walked away completely unharmed. The preacher ended up breaking his finger, and chipping his tooth.
The idea of a "man of god" who preaches a message of hippie Jesus love wailing on someone was so hilarious to me that making fun of him, being unaggressive, and insulting the whole time was actually more satisfying than smashing his head in.
