    “But if you bite and devour one another, watch out that you are not consumed by one another.”

    This!

    Typical comments section EVEN on Christian websites, mainly in the realm of politics.

    I personally have not been “unfriended” by anyone for my views, and I have not done that to anyone either. I just don’t really see the value in ending a friendship due to voting record. Unless of course their tactics become bullying and coercive.

    I’ve been unfriended and blocked…and learned to avoid some people that I would never have thought of avoiding before…

    Like my old Texas uncle told me (and oft said by someone who posts here), “People are no damn good.” Walking with our Lord changes that, if it doesn’t? Might have to question just who they ARE walking with.
    Some folks think they see a hero when they follow this website
    stay the course, Michael, stay the course…. 😇

    Could be that I don’t get close enough to some people to get into deep/controversial subjects. My wife had a friend call her up and tell her to vote for Trump. I am proud that my wife said no and explained why.

    Dan,

    I’ve been through a church split and twice in the last decade lost about a third of our daily readers.
    We somehow always get new readers,but the losses sting when you consider folks “friends”.
    I used to visit with folks when they passed here going up or down the I-5 corridor…I don’t do that anymore…people are too radical…

    Wait! Does that include me? I still hope to meet you the next time we visit our family in Washington.

    (No idea when that will be.)

  7. Michael says:

    Xenia,

    I would be honored to meet you…

    Michael,

    I can admit that my wife’s and our friend’s relationship was strained a bit after that phone call where our friend almost demanded my wife vote like she was going to vote.

    I agree too that many people have become too radical today. I was talking at work with a few co-workers recently how there is no “middle” anymore…”if you voted for so-and-so, you are the worst person ever. “

    I too would be honored to meet you someday Michael!

  9. Michael says:

    Dan,
    Likewise, my friend.
    I’m sure you wouldn’t be packing and trying to convince me that “Q” was the herald of truth…

    The drive to Oregon is too long, or I’d make a day trip to see you and the cat(s), Michael.

  11. Michael says:

    BrianD,

    We’d all be glad to see you, my friend…

    Jesus was Un-friended by everybody and ticked off both the Ultra conservative and the progressive. Maybe you are doing something right

    Shortpolock, 👍 👍
