“Why Can’t We All Just Get Along?”

The rancor we see in online Christian discussion groups these days is just a reflection of the ideological, cultural, geographic, political, and generational mega-split we see in America lately.

There are those who want to take the ideological “ball” and run away with it, meanwhile showing the very intolerance of contrary ideas of which they accuse Conservatives, unable to support their own views and wishes with facts or reason, and unable to handle debate, emotionally or procedurally.

Such individuals then blame those of contrary views for the rancor that they themselves have usually created, and like petulant schoolyard children, take their “ball,” and go home.
