I never said that I don’t have friends with different perspectives; in fact I have all kinds of friends with all kinds of beliefs and perspectives. I even have a few acquaintences who still avidly support Trump, although I keep them pretty much at arms length. I did not cut them completely out of my life (as most of my friends did). I’m quite regularly bemused at the number of bible verses and conservative leaning articles that come across my FB newsfeed. I simply said that I am not close to anyone who is a hardcore conservative. Also that both sociologists and psychologists have some pretty convincing theories about why people tend to lean in one direction or the other.

Oh my goodness, there is nothing I love more than having my thoughts and feelings explained to me by some random guy. Thanks so much for making my day!
