John McCrarey writes an excellent post that makes the case for people who just want to sit down and have a reasonable discussion instead of being called racist, sexist, or otherwise bigoted/oppressive. The post's punchline:
The point is when people actually talk to each other as opposed to at each other, it often turns out that we are not as far apart as it may otherwise seem.
I used to have a strong interest in the dynamics of dialogue, especially interreligious dialogue. Whatever happened to that version of me?
