So I am not sure what 'topic' to put here as I haven't got my thoughts together yet, but I needed to put it down somewhere.
So time and time again, I see people say they delete friends off facebook for offensive posts related to race/sexism/politics etc
Do any of you delete people for posts you find offensive about religion? (I guess this question is more for the Christians / other religious people?)
I'm Christian and I am not one to generally comment on posts I find offensive on facebook. I really hold myself back because I hate confrontation and often I feel like I'll just get completely hammered for MY spiritual and religious beliefs from atheists.
A girl I know posted this picture of the pope with something I find completely untrue and against my beliefs. I have no idea whether this is an actual statement from the pope or not, but I completely disagree. I would love to give my 2 cents but I'm holding back as it wouldn't change her mind and I don't force my beliefs on people either, but at the same time it's ****ed me off enough to want to delete her... She also has completely different political views from myself and often I find myself getting annoyed at those too.
I know I could delete or block her but she's a mutual friend of DH and although we don't see her often, there are times when we do, and if I deleted her then saw her, I know it would be awkward and she would wonder why I deleted her etc. I don't go out of my way to see her but if our group got together (which is likely to happen) then she would be there.
I guess this post is a bit of a vent and a discussion on what other Christians feel / do in these situations?
