And, dude, seriously, a bumper sticker is not exactly classifed as "shoving beliefs down one's throat".
Exactly. It is not shoving down the throat, it is more like stabbing you in the eyes with their beliefs.

So you can't stand to see others have different opinion than you? You vote for who you want, and let others do the same.

I've lived in the Gulf area of MS as well as NE MS. Residents in both areas frequently offered invitations to their church and some of the first questions at meeting were "where do you live" and "what church do you belong to"?

If you are moving to a new area, attending their church it is a nice way to meet people.

The issue is actually one of tolerance. Tolerance for other beliefs.
If you think a bumper sticker is a "stab in the eye" then maybe The Sip is not for you. In fact, with the US having such ethnic, political, and social diversity, how do you even tolerate being in this great country?
Embrace diversity of opinion, embrace freedom of expression. You will have a happier life.

If it was Democratic stickers, I'm sure that's just a lovely sight for your precious eyes, am I right?

We should just ignore him or her, clearly that person doesn't even live in this state. A quick look at person's posting history indicates it's yet another P&C sub-forum poster slithering out of that forum sewer to add a quick "hit and run" partisan post of no relevance or importance.

Sad they have to do this...but it's ironic given the topic of concern that residents to MS are tolerant to those moving in from another state. The answer from my 15 years of experience of living here as a non-religious person is yes. But here we have someone from another state preaching intolerance to residents in MS. Maybe there is a lesson somewhere for the OP out of that ugly message of hatred coming out of that aforementioned post: MS is live and let live, however intolerance will be met by intolerance. That probably actually applies to anywhere in the US.

3. My most recent trip to the supposed more open minded coast this summer, in ocean springs while having lunch I counted at least a dozen cars and trucks driving by with large Trump banners waving.

Ignore there who tell you that people keep their religion and politics to themselves. They very much do not.
Hey there from WA State, Seattle metro, the so-called "Left Coast." Most rational thinkers call it the "Far Left" coast these days, with our weak and Socialist-leaning mayor allowing armed insurrection within the city limits famously this past summer. That was disbanded mere days, supposedly, prior to federal troops arriving and taking it back by force. Probably for the best it came down when it did, all considered.

Hmm: a Conservative boat rally for a political candidate is "shoving it down others' throats." I question that. The BLM activists have a running protest on the weekends in my suburban town outside Seattle, and though I feel differently about the views expressed nothing is shoved down my...whatever.

Same for 2, and 3. These are political expression events, it's a free country. There are Trump rallies even in this Far Left part of the country (Seattle), as-well: no one feels ...threatened(?). One barreled through downtown this past weekend, in fact, and that's the one I saw. And marchers march, for and against.

Enough said, my comment is general btw.

I'll leave it to OP to decide if my examples can be considered as "shoving their beliefs down others throats." Posters on this board seem to think nothing short of a physical assault counts.

Lovemaine you say what?

Yesterday I had a person come up to me in Walmart and asked me "You're voting for our President right?" It was an older gentleman so I was polite and simply told him I don't discuss politics with people I don't know. If it had been a young person I would have told them where they could stick their question.

By the way I don't understand this focus on politics in the moving decisions, it pops up so frequently in these state forums. Focus on what you have in common, which is quite a bit, not on the differences.

I don't get it. Focus on crime rate, cost of living, schools, job opportunities, taxes, traffic, climate, etc. in your moving decisions...politics should be one of the least of your considerations.
I definitely disagree with your post. Imagine living in a place where people aggressively drive around you because you have a certain political candidate bumper stickers or having your political signs destroyed each election season. Or imagine trying to meet a partner and end up on dates where the other person shouts obscenities at you because you tell them you don’t vote for the current occupant in the WH. The general values of an area can either add or detract from one’s qualify of life.

Sounds tough.
Glad I don't live in a place like that.
