Polite company

#15: “It’s never a good idea to discuss religion or politics with people you don’t really know.” Agree or disagree?

Since I don’t really have a profound interest in either of them, I generally don’t discuss politics or religion with anyone. I simply agree and understand that people are free to believe in whatever they wish. However, to answer the original prompt, I think it is fine for people to discuss these topics with people they don’t know, so long as it remains a discussion and does not turn into an offensive debate provoking argument or a bid to convert the other individual. It is simply discussing an individuals interest and at the end of the day, that’s how you make connections in society – shared interests!
