We’re all the same

Just because I don’t put as high a priority on an issue as you do doesn’t mean I’m stupid or that I don’t care.

And it doesn’t mean that I’m immoral.  This judgment on morality usually came from  religious ideologues… Christian priests or Muslim clerics. But today, religious-level conviction has seeped into non-religious political issues.  Best leave that righteous indignation in the church and mosques.  After all, they have an all-powerful God backing them up.

So no, I’m not immoral. You’re not moral. Or vice versa. We simply don’t agree.

And that’s ok. Because that’s were a discussion starts. One that must be had. It leads to an even better perspective, broadening each of our beliefs, where we start seeing context and a fine tuning of beliefs before they are applied to complicated realities.

A better perspective that indicates that, really, we’re all the same.
