Okay.... just dropping my 2.3003 cents in here,
I agree with @Coop_Blimppenny - with an additional caveat.
I would highly recommend keeping Christ as the balance and base of your political discussions. At the same time, any debate and discussion should always be backed up with real foundational information. Here's a few loving and kind pointers.... (I grew up debating lol)
1. Check the source. Nowadays, both sides of the spectrum can search and find any source and resource. But, is that source balanced, one-sided or bias? So hard in today's landscape of ideas to know what is actual and real, because everybody believes everything is real.
2. This is real life and biblical. Remember Government, debate - both are actually biblical. (Is. 9:6) But, simply closing a blind eye, not weighing the facts and truth, and shouting emotionally over facts are actually discouraged in biblical context. Careful!
3. It's all good! (and bad!) Both sides have good and bad, pros and cons and rights and wrongs. Might I suggest going through point by points rather than flat out blaming, otherwise, it's no longer a discussion but a shouting match.
4. R-E-S-P-E-C-T! (Sing it w/Aretha Franklin voice) Remember to respect each other and not disc or demean the other simply because they don't agree. Also... hmm, how to say this... try to discern what is and what is not disrespect. In today's "flakes and safe space" society, folks totally pounce on and have complete meltdowns on anyone that simply disagrees. Not condoning or supporting their ideology somehow equals disrespecting or being a "hater" which is so not the truth. SMH at that really. We as a family very heavily understand and see how that today's evil is actually now considered normal and good. And, again, as the bible gives us, in this day they will call good evil, and evil good. Terminology, verbiage and definitions have been radicalized and literally changed and redefined by elite and immoral pushers. (Ex. God is love. So you can love anyone or anything and it's all good, because God "is" love.) (Clears throught, ahem...) Um.... waaay out of context of not only biblical precepts, but what is good, holy, right and moral. But you get the point.
5. Stand up. We do encourage you to stand up for what's right, and for truth. In love, peace and humility - but stand up. But also, stand with knowledge and information, not just "uh, like, dude, the bible is right." Show scripture, show sources, quotes, history, etc.
6. Stay in the right spirit. This being a Christian platform, if anytime you feel yourself get "out of character" to what becometh a Christian, slow down, take a breath, eat McDonalds, drink a Starbucks, then slowly try again. But if you simply can't keep a right spirit or attitude, it's suggested to be right with God, your parents, each other and just let go of an argument. Remember, friendships - real friendships - are hard to come by. Don't jeopardize that by trying to prove points.
