WordPress gives this prompt today – “It’s never a good idea to discuss religion or politics with people you don’t really know.” Agree or disagree?
Vehemently Disagree! We should always be looking to grow and develop. You can only do this if you push a little past your comfort zone.
My time is precious to me. I like to enjoy every moment I live. I love thinking about and discussing politics and religion. I love meeting new people. I love to easily tell if I want to continue to spend time with the new people I meet. A very quick way to figure this out is to discuss politics and/or religion, preferably with people who don’t agree with me. It is a great way to be challenged, hopefully learn something new, and get to know someone. Even when it raises to level of a yelling match, it just means passions have been ignited and as long as you are friendly at the end, why not enjoy a nice dose of spirited debate.
The whole idea of off limit topics is baffling to me. Push yourself. Push others. Stay civil and kind, but always look to grow. If you take permanent offense to my spirited debate, I most likely have no desire to get to know you any better.
