I have come to realize that we need to get involved with our communities, respect the differences in our lifestyles, and use our humanitarian efforts to work together.
A forum for discussion and a place to connect with others.
I'm interested in other peoples ideas as well as sharing some of my own. I'm looking for interesting conversations.
Well, the reason I joined was because I wanted to listen, discuss, and meet others in an environment that allows for open discussion about topics that in most situations would be unwelcome and hostile. How often do you get a chance to really speak your mind about religion and politics without being shut out or caught up in a hot debate? I was impressed with the group engaging in this type of discussion and everyone was being very civil. I felt that my opinions were respected and yet people were willing to challenge me and each other. I get the feeling that this is not a group that's going to just agree with each other and I find that refreshing as well.
