Sorry, Jason. I never intended to give the impression that I looked down on you. I was only trying to respond to your suggestion that we have conversations. I have 305 friends at the moment and moderate an active group. I don't encourage people to have lengthy conversations via comments because comments on my page get lost. Often what is said is worthy of saving and sharing. For this reason I encourage sharing conversations with the larger group in which I'm most active. Discussions there don't get lost. Also, it seems a shame to waste an intelligent conversation on just me.
The exception, of course, is a private topic. Even strangers can have something to say that they don't want the whole world to hear. Sometimes someone is embarrassed or angry. I'm sorry if I sounded presumptuous. I don't expect people to share all of my values to be friends, just not to be jerks. If your standards are higher, that's fine.
Unless you have something you need to discuss privately, I suggest you post a discussion in Hang With Friends. I'll be sure to see what you say, and so will over 600 other bright interesting people (who might have a more interesting response than mine alone). 600 brains are better than one.

I agree yes these are stories of religious bigots waking up and realizing that the legendary and mythological stories and some immoral rules created by ancient sheep-herding nomads had missed the mark and they…"
"Joan, you mentioned awhile back about liking to eat a nice steak with some red wine. The Argentinians have a wonderfully simple accompaniment to their steaks: Chimichurri Sauce
It has lots of chopped parsley and garlic!!"
