If you're like me, you struggle with how to INTERACT with others who seem so hard-hearted (edited) [View all]

(I edited the subject line, changing "engage" to "interact" because that's more appropriate. I don't seek out those with different worldviews with the intention of trying to discuss these matters. I simply meant that when I DO find myself interacting with extreme right-wing conservatives, I often have a difficult time...I find myself being passive-aggressive.)

Anyway, maybe others struggle regarding how to interact, especially about issues of compassion and having an open heart, as so many times their words and actions contradict their loudly proclaimed religious beliefs. Though this isn't something necessarily relegated to those who claim the label "conservative."

I know there are many (Limbaugh/Beck crowd) that will never see things the same way. I don't try to interact with them at all; in fact, I detach and avoid them as much as humanly possible.

But I can't help but feel there are many out there who are conflicted...who do have cognitive dissonance and struggle with the inner conflict.

This blog was written in an attempt to at least try to trigger a heart opening and a shift in perspective.

If you're inclined to share it with those you know or like the GD post, I'd appreciate it.
