Religion And Politics. What An Uproar.

I never discuss politics. I have no interest in it what-so-ever. I have, however, seen others who do, and it can cause quite the long thread of heated debates and chastisement. I don't really discuss religion per se either, but I might discuss a subject that might seem to some to have a religious tone to it somewhere. Many of those end up with name calling and damning one to hell as well. I never mean to offend anyone with what I write (usually it is light jibberish). HOWEVER, having said that, anyone who does not wish to read what I have to say, guess what! You don't have to!! You can go on about your merry way and leave me to the people who care. Thanks so much for reading, and have a WONDERFUL day/night.

I try to write about happy fun stuff, but I do also talk about my love for God and, his love for us at times.

We should be able to write whatever we feel here, without ridicule. I usually write happy fun stuff too.

I write about politics sometimes and comment on others' posts a lot, but I feel the same way as you do.

I have just never had any interest in politics. I really should pay more attention though.

I like that we can express our opinions and feelings on myLot, but it's never right to call names or insult someone else. No one's forcing us to respond. I learn a lot from the differing perspectives of others on here, whether I agree or not. PS Cindi, are you guys okay from the hurricane? We got flood waters up to our garage, but praise God, that was the worst of it. Our daughter in Charleston thankfully didn't get flooded either, although they had to evacuate.

Yes, we all have a right to our opinions. Thank you for asking, we are fine. We were without power for a few days, but all is okay now. It really was a mess to clean up, and some around us had flooding and even fires to their homes, but we were spared any real damage. Matthew killed a little over 300 people, mostly in Haiti. This storm was a dangerous one. I am glad that more lives were not taken, and my heart goes out to the families who are suffering the loss of their loved ones.

@cindiowens It really was a devastating storm. Glad you guys are okay. Seems like the poor people in Haiti have so many tragedies.

I think it depends on the approach of the person who posts it. I have had a few civil discussions on the subject. But i really have to pick and choose who can handle a difference of opinion with grace and who can't.

A difference of opinion is fine. We all have them, and it makes a conversation interesting. Bashing the writer and resorting to name calling is what is bad. If we disagree, and the discussion makes us that angry, then we should just move on to happier things.

Even if you try to keep the tone light and unconfrontational some people get really worked up about religion and politics. Mostly I steer away completely from these subjects. Sometimes there seems no way to have a rational conversation about either.

This is true. I have many questions regarding religion, but I dare not ask them here. ( I might someday, but this is my feelings today.)

You said it right there, if you don't like something I wrote, don't read it. :-) My sentiments exactly.
