    From the link [STRIKE]xenusdad[/STRIKE] Free to shine posted, I'd say it means "Trinity College Dublin".

    Looks like "I’ll be taking part in two debates about religion this week, in University College Dublin on Wednesday and in Trinity College Dublin on Thursday." from the link I quoted. :)

    Trinity College Dublin, the school of the heavy hitters in Irish legal, Political and Academic circles.

    On Thursday 27 October I will be in TCD, debating the motion ‘This House Believes that Scientology is as Legitimate as any other Religion’. This debate is organised by the University Philosophical Society.

    I and Mike Rinder, a former global spokesperson for the Church of Scientology, will be proposing the motion, and former Scientologist John Duignan and Matthew McKenna of Anonymous Ireland will be opposing the motion.

    So does that mean that Mike will be arguing that Scientology IS a legitimate religion?

    Just want to make sure I'm following this correctly....

    Dead on the button.

    I am curious to see if he has allowed ideas; the nuances of living and sharing the world with people of wide and various outlooks and experience. Has he allowed his attitudes and convictions to be informed by that vast array of influences that he has the luxury of allowing himself to be exposed to; those rich experiences of love and human intercourse that to Mike would have been new, frightening in some ways, challenging of the cultic black and white one way thinking experienced as one who spent the totality of his childhood, teenage and adult years in the intellectually and emotionally barren desert that describes the life of a scientologist. I hope he has, and will be deeply disappointed if he has simply carried on in that same paranoid and damaged vein.

    That's the $64 question, Lulu Belle. I'd like to know the answer too but I'm pretty sure he'll be arguing for rather than against.

    He is arguing for the motion. For the lulz, no other scientologist could be found to argue for their so-called religion so Michael Nugent, head of Atheist Ireland has been brought in as he believes that no religion is legitimate, therefore scientology may as well be included in that.
