St Paul – Argument Of The Month – Live Stream

I am at St Augustine’s in St Paul where my old friend Fr Echert reigns.  Years ago they started something called the Argument Of The Month – a moderate fight in front of a few hundred men in current topics.

It is being LIVE STREAMED to men’s groups in several cities.

Here are a few photos.

Here is Fr Echert – the Megyn Kelly of tonight’s debate.

This is a great model.  Christ. Meat. Beer. Lots of the guys bring their sons.

With one of the panelists, Michael Matt.

    I’ve heard about this group a couple of times over the past year. It sounds really cool. They always seem to get renowned and exceedingly qualified speakers to participate.

  2. Norah says:

    This sounds wonderful; just the thing to encourage men to participate in the Church. I wish there was a priest in Australia interested enough in the Faith to set up a similar group.

    Meat and potatoes… yep, looks like guy’s night out! And is Fr. Echert wearing a sweater with Donald Trump in a Santa Hat giving a thumbs up on it?

    Darn it, the one night I’m not able to go…

    Are the women in another room having the Cat Fight of the Century? Not against men having mens’ only events. Great. But in an age where I argue with so many women who FEEL over THINK their opinions, such a forum is badly needed.

    I am glad that Michael Matt is involved with this group. While I don’t always agree with his points of view, he is one of the more thought-provoking and charitable Traditionalists in print and on the net. His contributions to the AOTM are helpful to bringing conservatives and traditionalists together. I hope this program continues.

    I spent much of the evening looking at Fr. Z thinking “who is that priest? I swear I’ve seen him somewhere before.” How funny. I’m proud to be in one of those pictures!

    You leave out the most important details:

    1) What was the argument about?
    2) Who won?

    We insist on the blow-by-blow details.

    :) You forgot that they’re obeying rule #1: “Don’t talk about argument club.”

    I like it! Any idea where we can tune in to the live stream or is it a secret?

  11. James in Perth says:

    Thanks paladin for the reminder. I will have to let them do their own talking!

    One time someone posted a youtube video with MV and JA in discussion at AOTM – it was great. Will they be posting a YouTube video for this last AOTM? I would love to hear Father Michael Rodriquez again.
