The context is political, but the article is about a way of thinking.

that article is a political article, and it is purely about politics.

The entire article is about politics. The article specifically mentions: midterms GOP Democrats Democrats Republicans Democrats Democrats Republicans Democrats Democrats Republicans Democrats Declaration of Independence Constitution Republicans Democrats Republicans Democrats Republicans Democrats Republicans Republicans Republicans Democrats Republicans Democrats Democrats Republicans Democrats Republicans Republicans progressive activists devoted conservatives both parties. Democrats Republicans Democrats Republicans curriculum conference Democrats Democrats patriotism"

all of that in just 10 paragraphs.

religion is not mentioned at all.
neither is spirituality.

Forget the politics. Forget that particular context. It is about a way of thinking.

Very true. The article is about how people are divided about politics and explains how so many people have misconceptions about other people who have different political beliefs and opinions. That's why I first shared that article in the P&OC forum (as I also explained when I later decided to share it here).

Why?

I suspect you missed my comment #183 where I explained why...

when you can discuss religion and spirituality without mentioning, referencing, talking about, or linking to articles about politics, then there can be a discussion.

Everyone else understands why it was posted. Why do you have a problem understanding, even after people have explained?

True again, although you need to better clarify this truth that seems only to apply to you and maybe just a few others. As follows...

When you, Tzap, can participate in a discussion about religion and spirituality without getting hung up about all your rules, parameters and inability to consider different angles, points of view and examples, then perhaps you can join with others who have no problem with such a discussion.

Or more likely, perhaps not. You have convinced me, perhaps not likely at all. Oh well...

God blessed the man and woman and said; Be fruitful and multiply. Giving them life that cannot be measured.

When God blessed Abraham, it was as many children as the sand on the shore, stars in the sky and dirt on the ground. Giving him life that cannot be measured.

God also shared that same blessing with Noah after the flood.

God sharing his living nature.

While the Satan/serpent claimed to measure up God with a measurement he couldn't make. Solitary unto himself, with no connection outside of that except corruption, a connection that deteriorates. And betting on that there is honor among thieves, who by nature prove themselves other-wise.

if people want to talk politics, then they can take it over to that forum. it's called following the terms of service.
most people are able to understand that.
