Why You Will Never See Me Argue Politics or Religion On Social Media

Rant, rave and carry on.  I am surprised I haven’t lost my “membership” to all social media platforms. I mean isn’t that what we are supposed to do? Fight about who is right and who is wrong?

You will never see  me choose to do that. When it comes to politics and religion, I am like any one else, I have my beliefs and feel just as strongly about them. I am just not going to  getting to a “debate” about  who is right and who is wrong. Nothing is that black and white. I do understand that using Facebook, Twitter or Instagram is about sharing and liking. I get that, really I do.

Unfortunately, not everyone does. They think that it is a place for them to get attention for the unnecessary behaviors they feel like displaying. I do enjoy a good conversation and I love to have a discussion with you on any subject, until it it becomes condescending or mean. Because then you ability to be objectionable about it is gone.

Lets face it, we all learned as kids, that we valued each others opinions. First at home, then at church and finally at school. And while I am aware that not everyone had  the benefit of all three, I know that somewhere along way you did hear the phrase, “If you can say something nice, don’t say anything at all.’

Sadly most folks are really good people deep down in, and they mean well. But regrettably as wonderful as social media can be, it doesn’t come with instructions. I will always  choose to build others up, regardless of who they are and how they think. I want to acknowledge them for their contributions to society as a whole. After all, we can all agree, we want to see a better, happier tomorrow. And to do that we must get past our differences, not dwell on them.

Make it a great day!
