Maybe We Really Can’t All Just Get Along

Didn't God put a tree in the Garden of Eden that was called The Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. Two opposing worlds. Isn't there a spiritual war going on in the universe? Those that follow God and those that do not. Either you have Faith or you have unbelief. And there ain't no neutral ground. Dylan. Jesus the Christ said, "I have come to cast fire upon the earth; and how I wish it were already kindled; Do you suppose that I came to grant peace on earth: I tell you, no, but rather division;"

During the Los Angeles riots of 1992, Rodney King famously asked, “Can’t we all just get along?” The answer should be an easy and unequivocal “yes,” but it seems less and less likely these days.

King was speaking in term of race, but the same could be said of political ideology. Liberals, conservatives and every other point on the political spectrum used to co-exist fairly easily (with the exception of left-wing anarchists who don’t get along with anyone). But these days détente has given way to anger and open hostility.

Some, not all, people have become less civil to those...
