"I may change my mind about this, but I likely will not vote for President this year. If I don't support war or militarism in any form, then I question why I am voting for the man who will be the "commander-in-chief" of a system I…"

"I wonder if those who 'take offense' do so because they may feel judged by some folks who are pretty adamant about their view being the 'right' view. I know I can get a little prickly when someone starts in with 'you're…"

"I'm having difficulty with this thread.  This kind of question is why I often feel that there is a shadow side to Quaker Universalism.  It isn't really as open and accepting as it likes to present itself: it seems to make…"
