“It’s never a good idea to discuss religion or politics with people you don’t really know.” Agree or disagree?

I agree. I have waded and got my feet wet in these type of conversations. It  usually has a bad outcome. Adults we are speaking to; suddenly turn into children fighting over the special toy.

If you get lucky to be on the same side of the rope, it can be a nice conversation, but please, no tug of war for me.

Teenagers hands playing tug-of-war with used ropeThere are just certain questions I don’t ask anymore. I also don’t offer my opinions on Facebook either. I have sat and watched a conversation on a page running quick, with stinging words, hateful comments. It is sad to watch.

This all happens because this is one area where each of us believe we are right. I guess when it comes right down to it; it is personal and private. Now it is an entirely different answer you will receive from me if someone is seeking God. I will be the first one to help show him the way but what I have learned in my own life.
