  • I have many friends with differing views on politics and religion. I know their positions, they know mine. We usually choose to talk about other things, BUT if those topics do come up.... we will discuss respectfully and tactfully and in the end.... we usually stay friends. Agree to disagree.

    I will not ask them to do something that I know they don't agree with.... and vice versa!

  • I do. I just tell her I will call her back when she starts talking about it.

  • Sure..but the relationship will always be somewhat limited. We can't always find ppl who will agree with us on everything..

  • Sure, unless they were so vastly different that I found them offensive. A white supremacist or something.

  • I married someone with both different religious and political views than me.

    Answer by SabrinaMBowen at 6:13 PM on Jul. 24, 2010

  • None of my friends have political beliefs that mirror mine. Some are more liberal, some are more conservative. Some are extremely liberal, some are extremely conservation. They run a gamut of religions, lifestyles, and social beliefs as well.
