Response — Christina D.
This has been a very enlightening post and an interesting read. One would never think to compare rhetoric to Christ, and in a sense, it is the perfect comparison. People are quick to shoot down what they do not know, just as many people do with Christianity as well how people outside the disciple of English do with rhetoric. I find this comparison interesting in the sense that in the same way that some people ignore Christianity and religion, some people also ignore rhetoric and even sometime even act as if the two do not exist. Your line “Once we start to mature, we realize that it doesn’t really matter that we can define it.” Is perfect, because even if we do define it, we will never have all the answers about it, we just have to sort of have this blind faith in it.
