But I think you will find their kind on almost every political forum and they by any stretch of the imagination DO NOT represent the majority. My advice is to develop a tough skin, keep an objective open mind and just keep planting the seeds of truth. Because this nation is starving for truth, and so if you don't, then who will?
    Because I have become convinced that the seeds of truth cannot grow in rock.

    How can you debate with people who believe things that are blatantly untrue? No matter how many facts you point out, there are folks who still believe that Obama is a Muslim and a socialist, that climate change is a myth, that evolution doesn't exist, and that all muslims are terrorists, all gays are child molesters and all blacks are racists.

    Anyone have a good suggestion for a good political site where reasonable people can discuss politics? Where there is a good ratio between liberal and conservatives and no one wears tinfoil hats?
    If you find out, let me know.

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Like Moot said, you gotta develop a thick skin. The way I see it, we're all here to share our social/political points of view. Not everyone is going to agree with you. Some folks you can share an honest, reasonable discourse with. Others, you can't. But you try anyway. I mean, what's the point of discussing issues with only those people who'll agree with you all the time? We learn even from those we disagree with. We may not always agree, but I'll take a learning experience any day of the week. However, I'll only tolerate rude, obnoxious and foolish for so long before I give a good as I get.

    Truth can grow anywhere....



    ObjectiveVoice said it very well and I would only add that the liars and deniers have always existed and probably always will. Politics is not for the faint and lighthearted to be sure, but you can still learn from the diversity and perverseness to fine tune your own argument, develop critical thought and learn a lot about yourself in the process. Personally, I like the informal lively banter and the rich diversity of people from all over the world on forums like this one. But if you really believe this forum is not for you, then I do know of another that is more formal debate and will PM you the address and then you will at least have something to compare.

    Re: The Rev. Franklin Graham Says President Obama was 'Born a Muslim'

    I want to take a moment,
    SOMEONE here at DP, whom won't be named sent me a PM accusing me of starting this thread for dishonest reasons:

    *Paraphrased but the gist remains:
    "You started this thread because of your racist, religious and personal bigotry. You didn't care about the facts of the Rev. comments you did it to troll"
    I want to make something clear, I started this thread because the story came on the heels of that poll showing 1/5th of American's think Obama is a Muslim. I felt the Rev. had a point of view that was interesting and I even lightly chided the Rev. for his "Dance" around the issue. I am offended by this notion that my motives were somehow "dishonest".

    Follow the chain of events people. If I didn't post it, someone else would have. That poll started a discussion, this thread is part of that. Don't like the thread, THAT'S fine, but don't you dare send me little piss ant insult PM's calling me a bigot. If there is something going on in the news and a news article discusses the issue with someone of newsworthy level... expect someone to post it.

    So you're not supposed to start a thread if you have the wrong intent? That's a new one!
