That is highly unlikely ! - Here in Uk we got really quite oppositional over “Brexit” - 2 of my daughters and their husbands were very “Remain” - 2 other daughters and their husbands agreed with me that Brexit was the only way to go ! - Ok we had some difficult conversations at first and had we all stamped our feet and sulked - we would not be talking now.
However - it is ESSENTIAL to remember that whatever your opinion - at the end of the day you as an individual can do nothing real to influence the rest of the world - so to fall out with someone you love over something you can really do nothing about seems pretty dumb to me ! - We can still go to the same BBQs and Parties etc - just talk about recipes, houses gardens, kids, fishing, Poker, winemaking, tropical fish, cars, and yes occasionally we may ‘Touch’ on ‘Brexit’ or BLM or Veganism or whatever one or more of us had gne “Wierd” on - but the vast majority of our lives remains non-contentious - why throw the baby out with the bathwater ?
If we heard today that @ria_rose had been burned at the stake for her refusal to ‘change Religion’ - we would of course all be very sad - but in a year or so when the membership here had changed - hardly anyone would even remember your name. - Those “family members” and / or “friends” you are thinking about “dumping” would still remember and mourn your passing with real feeling - They would probably be sad that they never got a chance to “talk you out of it” - but grieve they certainly would.
So what I’m saying is - hell girl - don’t stuff the “Religion” in their faces too much - ergo you won’t need to be ‘burned at the stake’ and just enjoy those bits of life which are less contentious between you.
I rarely advocate “Falling out” with people since if you’re ‘not speaking’ - you have no opportunity to place even a tiny bit of doubt in their mind - or they in yours !
Generally speaking I think that those who wish to stop discussing ‘stuff’ in their righteousness - are often really quite afraid that they are in danger of losing the discussion ?
If you consider @tommor who posted above and me - we’ve ‘crossed swords’ on one or two issues - but we’re both bright enough to know that each of us has valid things to say most of the time. Our personalities are very different - we are both fairly bright but he is High in Conscienciousness (I suspect) whereas I am really quite low in Consciensciousness - which probably makes him a far better employee than me ! However I am pretty high in “Openness to new experience” - which indicates an artistic or entreprenneurial tendency. To be a successful place - the world needs both of these types - to co-operate and progress towards a mutually beneficial future.
We tend to wppreciate each other and sometimes give each other “Likes” - because well a lot of the time each of us speaks sense the other appreciates. If we were sulking with each other - we both would be losers !
So whatever changes the world has in store for us - we are far better able to cope as “Families” that as isolated Individuals
Hope that helps
