What I mean by this is that generally we will only talk about God, Religion & Politics with those we know share the sames ideas and beliefs that we ourselves hold. For example, we have these conversations within the borders of “our” churches or “our” other religious places of worship, or within the confines of “our” homes only with “our” immediate family members and friends, or within the borders of the various social and civic groups we “ourselves” may be involved in with other people who share “our” similar beliefs.
So it appears that perhaps herein lies our challenge. We have learned to only be comfortable talking about God, Religion & Politics with other people who share our similar beliefs and not with those who may not.But that is not our only challenge. It seems that we have also learned to take the stance that those “other” people who don’t agree with us, and who may in fact, be adamantly opposed to our way of thinking, are automatically and absolutely wrong, and don’t even warrant us having civil conversations with them. We now, like the politicians, have resorted to a “Talking Point” kind of discourse with other people who don’t share our views. This dear reader is both a sad and dangerous disposition. And this is where we are in these United States of America.
My conclusion, it is definitely time for us to evolve!
