In polite company where I grew up, you didn't talk about politics and you didn't talk about religion. There's also health care and the cost thereof, and gender issues which seem to be "an issue" only for church folk. Expect to see lots of articles linked and dissected. And really, any issue of faith as it is lived out and just might step on someone's toes...that was out.
This is the place I will expound on issues of the day that have the effect of dividing people. They don't have to, but it takes a discipline many do not possess.
Comments will be allowed, and for now, not moderated. Be nice.
