      No. Are you one of those of the empowered majority who pretend at a victim's status by creating absurd categories of slight, like the "war" on Christmas?

      Stay in school until you are able to deal with confrontation.
      Colleges should be the place where people learn how to identify and confront poor thinking, by developing critical reasoning skill sets and by inhabiting beliefs that are foreign to them and learning how to address them as serious constructs. Sadly, too many liberal arts colleges seem to be deficient at the undergraduate level these days. It's a cause for concern, but one that's also echoed in a conservative transformation of many institutions of higher learning into glorified trade schools, where the point is commerce and relation to it to the near if not complete exclusion of the beneficial other, among which is that skill set.

      Stay out of politics where ideas are proposed and resisted.
      And learn to call ideas different from your own unpatriotic or unAmerican.

      Limit yourself to small groups that agree with you.
      Like conservative or liberal forums, where divergence is discouraged. And be sure to only subscribe to non-fake news outlets like Fox or CNN, depending on your views.

      Don't talk politics at family gatherings.
      That's probably a good idea for anyone who is over thirty.

      Stay away from religious forums.
      No, get an ear full of them. You'll find a wide range of opinions, many of them scary. You need to see what religion does to otherwise decent people when they confuse faith with mechanics and their bedclothes with judges' robes.

      And you'll meet the occasional saint who'll uplift your hope in a gentler walk and a loving evolution in Christ.

      Better yet go to a country where free speech is not allowed.
      He's just being silly at this point, mostly because Chrys only really sees half the problem.

      You don't have to go anywhere else for that, just reelect this president and stick around. He's already working on one of those walls, but it's just to keep out an "invader"...honest. Cross his heart and hope to divide.

        When I'm napping, I guess

        Stay in school until you are able to deal with confrontation.
        nah, go out in the world, work to support yourself and get a real education

        If your plans necessitate a degree or certification, get it while you're working. Full time college without a paying experiential element is a sucker's game

        Don't be a sucker

        Stay out of politics where ideas are proposed and resisted.
        Always remember that those who are successful in politics are almost always corrupt and will only do what they promise if you hound them

        So get yourself some hounds

        Limit yourself to small groups that agree with you.
        Co-workers are good, all working toward a common goal

        Don't talk politics at family gatherings.
        Can I talk family at political meetings?

        Stay away from religious forums.

        Like canada?

        Or scotland?

        • you have
          A Right
          only because you belong to a group. Why does your group need a right? We have the "Bill of Rights" but they apply to every citizen of the United States. That is a big group that includes all genders, all religions, all races etc. Now your subgroup must have a particular right. Why? That right may interfere with the right of another group. Do two guys have a right to get married in a Catholic church? What is the opposite of a right? Responsibility according to Jordan Peterson. A right is something you have coming to you. A responsibility is something you owe. A duty. Who is talking about that besides Jordan Peterson? That is a problem for many. Why?

            We sometimes have to establish laws that deal with specific groups because the majority has had a way, historically, of forgetting that everyone should have the same rights, balanced between one another as equally in exercise as we can.

            Do two guys have a right to be married in a Catholic church?
            No, though they have a right to be married. A Catholic church isn't a business and isn't holding itself out as one.

            What is the opposite of a right? A right is something you have coming to you. A responsibility is something you owe. A duty. Who is talking about that besides Jordan Peterson? That is a problem for many. Why?
            He's just playing with language if he's serious about that. There's no opposite involved, only a distinction between what we are entitled to do and what we do because we accept that it is owed by us. Those aren't logical opposites. And all sorts of people talk about that every day. Peterson's gift is in making the simple sound complex and literary, if only after an I've completed an undergraduate reading list at a decent college fashion.

            • milo vs jordan
              A Public Therapy Session
              between Milo Yiannopoulos and Jordan Peterson, two very interesting people. Jordan presses Milo on the effects of a priest molesting him when he was 14 years old. Milo resists and will not confirm what Jordan suspects. Milo refuses to play the victim card which most likely led to his downfall. He also suggests Jordan is being compromised. Very interesting. Well worth your time.

              • jordan and the bishop
                A Dialogue
                between Bishop Barron and Jordan Peterson. Way too long and not so interesting but I suffered through it just to see if Jordan would talk about homosexuality. At the end Jordan gets the bishop to admit that he read the book and would be willing to talk about it at their next session. The book is " In the Closet of the Vatican". Looking forward to that one.

                • jonathan morris, dolan, cuomo
                  A Coincidence
                  or a sequence of events. Cuomo signs the abortion bill. Jonathan Morris is critical and soon placed on administrative leave by Timothy Dolan. Cuomo calls for an end to statute of limitations for rape which would include priest victims. Dolan was bothered by the abortion bill but knew it would take a lot of money to settle old claims. Go ahead and connect the dots.

                    A Trinity
                    made in Their Image. The child joins the man and woman together. Be fruitful, and multiply, Let the children come. To save the family and the child, we must protect marriage and life. You can't vote for Democrats. They are destroying the family. They are destroying life. Let the children come and you must protect them. Abortion kills babies. Democrats support abortion. You can do something about it. Do it.

                    • an abomination
                      A Divorce
                      hurts the child. Let not man put asunder. Till death do you part. This is what the Church teaches. The reason for this is to protect the child. There is a reason, a meaning, and a purpose for everything. You will find it if you look for it. You have an obligation, a duty to respect it. The child should not suffer the convenience of an adult.

                            A Commitment
                            necessary to protect the child. Adults can protect themselves but a child depends on parents and their commitment to each other. To protect the child it is necessary to protect marriage and the family. Every child needs a mother and a father. The state cannot replace the family. Nothing can replace the family. Only the Church can save the family.

                              The first is Jordan Peterson, right? And the second is you? As much as you like him, he's not a perfect fit for you, really.

                              Anyway, neither one of those works by itself, nor do they work together. Maybe because they're too unyielding to be realistically applied to daily life and human nature.

                              Tried and waited then got tired, that's about it

                                of the Church by homosexuals. The good news is the teachings of the Church will not be changed. The bad news is they will just be ignored. What can you do about it? That depends on your particular situation. Find out what is going on and expose it. You can't ignore it. You can't walk away from it. Stay and fight for His Church. It is our Church. What you do about it may determine your salvation.
