– Did RZ like lesbian porn?!😉
– Did Hemingway commit suicide?
– Dear X…
I am very hesitant to have ideological discussions with you, because you may be deeply offended, and that may set off another cycle of conflict between us.
I am comfortable with respecting your views (including your criticism of my beliefs). I accept that we are radically different, but also believe that we could be friends!
And it might be better to use a communication framework (like DRL) to have difficult/sensitive conversations, to minimize relational strain…?

E.g. Contemporary nominal Christians
– by dint of
Refusing the failure of the future

3. Mindfulness – stay in detached observation/neutral awareness of the “deadness” – contemplation
Use a judicious mix of all 3, depending on the particular situation/need!
