commented on Love Thy Neighbor: Even If They Are A Republican

Excellent article, and very true to life. Our family’s experience as being (almost) the only liberal family in an otherwise highly conservative ward has similarities to what is described here. I don’t think it has always been this way, but over many decades church members have shifted more towards the Republican party than having more of a balance politically … as a result, those of us who are liberal feel like we are required to keep our opinions quiet or face the negative consequences while at church or in a largely Mormon neighborhood. It’s sad that anybody who doesn’t fit into the “box” of Mormonism has to feel uncomfortable in the one place that should feel like home.
