DIALOGUE, NOT DEBATE



Dialogue is about learning where debate is about asserting “I’m right and you’re wrong”.

Recycle Your Faith seeks to create an environment where differing opinions are welcomed. Unfortunately, differences in opinion are too often accompanied by a natural tendency to debate rather than participating in open dialogue, so we ask that you follow a few general guidelines when commenting:

Seek Understanding Rather Than Influence

When you feel the urge to try to change someone’s views, try asking a question instead.

Be Respectful

When sharing your thoughts, don’t attack another person’s point of view or be condescending.

No Name-Calling

Name calling just pushes buttons and provokes debate.

Relax

Dialogue is not easy. Try giving others the benefit of the doubt and not comparing your best with their worst.
