When looking at the answers to polls or questions here on Cafemom, specifically in the religion or politics sections, are you ever SERIOUSLY afraid for the children of some of the respondents?
Sometimes I see answers or comments that are full of ignorance, hate, bigotry, or plain old crazy. It scares me sometimes to know that these women are raising children. I know that some of the moms that I feel this way about would probably feel exactly the same way about me, but I wondered if anyone else has ever run across a question or answer that made them terrified for the kids being raised in that home...

No, it doesn't scare me. I like to hear other points of view, they provide me with insight I wouldn't have if I didn't hear from others that are so strong in their convictions. Not that I have to agree with it all, but it gives me a good idea of what some other people think. Now, in public, I am reasonably sure that most of the women on here would be very pleasant to talk to. After all, how often do you walk up to strangers and start a political discussion? I have some strong beliefs of my own, but try my hardest to give my children a more open view of issues. Age appropriate of course. I know there are some nasty responses to some questions, but just a reminder that disagreeing on a subject doesn't make you a hater, bigot or racist.
