Billy Martin Posted September 30, 2014 Report Share Posted September 30, 2014 Hey y'all. I thought I would add here a word of caution with this forum. I've been a member of sites that still offer a political forum and some that have eliminated it from their site. It seems to me that it can and often does lead to friendship breakdowns and at times chaos for the management of the sites that hosts forum such as this. Personally, I'm pro gay, in that I'm against gay bashing and any actions that treats gays any differently than any other member of society. I believe in equal rights for all, not special rights for some. In just those two sentences, the probability is high that I have already said something that some of you will disagree with. Political discussion is important in a Democratic Republic like ours, but is a community like ours (literature site) the best place for it. The USA is a divided nation, at present, and I'm sure there are some of us found on both ends of the spectrum of political opinion. Some opinions are very strongly held and locked-in. When challeged on their beliefs can result in some very heated debates, if debates is what they are called. I don't, because usually no one is listening to what anyone else is saying and people just end up talking at others and not with others. And that is just taking in the differing opinions of those in the USA. Add the world and watch out. I can live with or without this forum. Just remember, we are all brothers and sisters. When we many are one, we are strong. When we many are many, we are weaker for it. Peace Billy GayActivist, ken barber and Hunter 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
