Never talk religion or politics
Whenever you have a political opinion and post on Facebook be prepared for a backlash and barrage from the people on your friend list who may happen to disagree.
Last week I posted about the Syrian refugee situation. I need to clarify my opinion for those who thought I was heartless.
Read last weeks blog ;'Welcoming Syrian refugees to Hawaii...'
America is no longer in it's infancy. I realize most of our ancestors are all from somewhere else. However our grandparent's countries of origins were not threatening to send terrorist amongst the innocent and we were not overpopulated then.
If there are too many people in a bar and a fire erupts it could cause panic and people could kill each other. Too many people on a multiple floor dwelling could collapse the floor and the people below would also suffer.
Right now it's like the restaurant has reached it's capacity, Do we let more people in while jeopardizing the safety of those here?
There are Arab countries close to Syria that also have many of the same belief systems, why are they not welcome there?
Getting back to Facebook--Many times friends will unfriend friends because they don't agree with them. The current Syrian refugee situation is an example--if you don't think like me, your wrong . Thousands of memes have appeared on Facebook for both sides of the argument. A common thought process goes like this, I don't like you because your opinion
is wrong so now, we are no longer friends.
When I was a kid, I can still hear my dad telling me you should never talk with friends or strangers about religion or politics.
Looks like my dad, may
he rest in peace--was a very wise man!
How about we all talk about pizza, then we can all be friends!
Please watch this amazing video of Brigitte Gabrielle, "Not all Muslims are bad." a powerful answer all need to hear!
The reason I post this story is for the comments. Please read the comments on this story if nothing else. We have a real problem on our hands... The great majority of the comments are not in favor....
