“It’s never a good idea to discuss religion or politics with people you don’t really know.” Agree or disagree?
If you’re a person with an open mind, I think it’s fine to talk about religion or politics with people you don’t really know. If you can accept ones belief without having the need to fight against it simply because yours isn’t aligned with theirs, then you have nothing to worry about. Opinions are everyone’s privilege. We may not be always comfortable to voice it out but that doesn’t mean we don’t the rights to say it when we want to.
It’s a delicate topic to talk about for people who are not very close to each other. If you want your friendship to grow, I suggest you don’t bring up religion or politics until you’ve spend some more time together. Although if you want to start a conversation that will tell about the person deeply, then you can enjoy your time listening to them talk about their values.
Friends tell each other secrets, best friends know it before you say it.
