...which is why I'm very careful about what forums I'll discuss politics on. I like to have a couple of forums free of the hard feelings that come from learning the political beliefs of your fellow posters.
Mature people can and do have heated discussions and then carry on quite happily, because in the end, unless there is some very VERY
deap seated belief that you cannot possibly tolerate, then everyone is allowed to have their own beliefs.
I myself have a best friend who has the complete opposite of my views and we discuss this regularly, she has been my friend for well over 25 years now and our relationship will not be spoilt because of each others political views.
However, given that there are one or two on this forum who are behaving extremely childishly because I did not agree with them, I can see what you mean Vice.
And yes, Furby, whatever nationality and whatever creed/religion or belief, where two or more people come together who have the opposite point of view, the sparks will eventually fly......
