Politics and Religion

Here in the American Midwest we say we won’t discuss politics or religion.  In reality, we won’t discuss them with people who disagree.  We will talk about both all day long with those considered “like minded.”

This rule is supposed to prevent conflict.  What it does is cause conflict by preventing communication.  The gridlock and lack of cooperation in our Federal government is also in our cities, neighborhoods and even our homes.

Nothing will get better while we choose sides and blame each other.  We must start talking.  Next time you are tempted to shut down a conversation with “I don’t discuss…” perhaps you really should talk about it.   Listen with an open mind and both sides might just learn something
