The main topic of this thread is the decree of Pope Alexander IV in “Sextus Decretalium” from the 13th century that forbade laymen from publically debating with heretics (and, as shown, was still in effect at least as late as 1902).  Debating publically with heretics and being a good apologist or public speaker for the Faith are two different things.

EDIT: Voxpopulisuxx, I just now clearly saw (I haven't had my coffee yet... lol!) your first sentence which reads, "Also, I think the thread has a subtext that hasn't been elucidated, and that is what about us poor slubbs who have never seen the inside of a college?"  Yes, you are right that that is a subtext of this thread, since that was one of the reasons (but not the only reason) for the papal decree in the first place.  Sorry about misunderstanding the point of your post.  :)
