    I don't think that politics is necessarily detrimental to spiritual growth. As with most other things, it depends on the political views one holds, and on how one pursues and/or implements one's politics. Most things can be used for good or for bad, politics among them.

    I was wondering, considering how ever since the recent election, everyone has been fighting on the forum.

    The pro-Trump vs. Never Trumpers gig has definitely brought down the forum.

    I am sure you remember it 2 yrs. ago vs. 1 1/1 years ago.

    I've always believed there are a few topics that should never be discussed in a forum: sexual orientation, religious beliefs, and politics.....unless you happen to join a forum focused on debating sexual orientation, religious beliefs, and politics! :p

    This thread appeared to be moving towards becoming a back door to opening another politically-based thread. It's now locked.

    To answer your question directly, Kurt, the short answer is an emphatic YES. So please don't ever again bring up politics here!
