Open to Debate



*Things that are always open to debate:

                Politics                                                                                               Religion         











Age to potty train a child                                                          Watching too much TV










            Abortion laws                                                                     Same sex marriages










*It’s always alright to have different views and to discuss them in debate.


**Things that are never open to debate:

My politics                                                                                            My Religion










When I can go to the bathroom                                                    How much TV I watch










Whether I can have an abortion                                                     Who I will marry














**It's never alright to force beliefs on me, or to get irate when I have my own.

    1. Yes they are. But we've all got our opinions, don't we. :)

    1. I was kinda leery about posting this type of thing, thinking, "People will say I'm not Christian, I'm gay, I'm just lost." But, I and God know who I am, and know that love trumps all disputed socio-political beliefs.

  4. I was always taught not to discuss religion and politics. You have taken it further, but I do so agree, my opinions or your opinions are our own and don't try and force them on to someone else.

    1. I think it's taught not to discuss religion or politics during a family or other type of social gathering, because people don't just debate, but take it too personal and get too heated, and do try to inflict their beliefs on others. But otherwise, that's what sharing ideas and learning is all about, which is one reason college was such a great time.

  5. I agree. I don't like it when people shove their beliefs at me. Also, I avoid certain topics. I've seen discussions get ugly.

    1. It can be. Sometimes it is best to just stay quiet.

  6. Nothing is off limits. It's only a matter of time and place, imo. Most of us do want others to understand where we're coming from, and on some level, it can be validating when others begin to see things our way. The flip side of that is that we need to be open to learning and rethinking our opinions. Dogged resistance to that stunts intellectual and spiritual growth for ourselves as well as people whose views we may influence.
