Why is it that politics brings out the worst in people? Christians that normally treat each other with respect suddenly have no issues with name calling and personal attacks once politics are involved. Would the politics section of this board really be a good testimony of our Christianity? Debate is is a good thing. It can be done in a civilized and respectful manner. If an unbeliever stumbled in here would they think we were a civilized and respectful group, or just more of those "hateful Christians"? I'm not excluding myself from admonishment. I've typed things here that went a little too far. For that I apologize and I'll keep my typing respectful in the future .
