Changing your religion

October 1, 2008 at 5:01 pm Leave a comment

I have to throw this out there, from reading profiles on facebook, tweets, etc – I have decided that there it is not worth my time to argue my position to anyone that is going to totally argue their candidate with me. You are not going to change my mind and I am not going to change yours. Now if we could hold an intelligent, civil conversation without resorting to name calling and ridiculous commentary, I would be happy to participate. Unfortunately, that is not usually how that plays out.

I find it to be similar to trying to change someone’s religious beliefs. If you have something that you hold dear to you such as your faith than you are not going to easily be swayed away from what you believe. In fact you might find it offensive when people attack you telling you that you are wrong.

So that said, I will not try to change your mind. If you will respect me and agree to disagree. I find it interesting to see the variances between each position, but I base what I believe on my values and faith.  So please know that going into any conversation.

If you do want to hold a civil discussion I welcome the conversation.

There is a reason the independent vote is the most important this election. They are the only ones who you are likely to have any influence over. So I will be interested in seeing how it turns out and how many people are swayed to one side or the other.
