Don't be cruel!
Marcus Goodyear writes at The High Calling: "Elvis may have said it best, but Jesus had some good words on this, too. He said, “Anyone who is angry with his brother will be subject to judgment… anyone who says, 'You fool!' will be in danger of the fire of hell” (Matt 5:21-22). If another person slanders you through social media, talk to him or her privately first (Matt 18:15-16). Don’t air ugly conversations in your comment sections. Don’t attack people or ideas in public posts. This doesn’t mean you have to be silent. Respond to comments with an email or private message. Engage them as Jesus says. And remember that it isn’t a sin for two Christians to disagree about politics." Any Christian website that is willing to cite Elvis as a source of wisdom is worthy of being linked: http://www.thehighcalling.org/326/ten-commandments-of-talking-politics
