Can You be Friends With Someone Who Has Different Political Views?

Our weekly vlogger Connie talks about whether or not you can be friends with people who have different political beliefs. She says that as a passionate person, she used to think that people who didn’t agree with her were simply willfully ignorant. But over the years, she’s realized that people don’t believe what they believe for no reason, and instead have lived lives that confirm what they believe is right. Connie says that if she challenged everyone who has different beliefs, she’d had no friends, and those who are discriminatory or hateful are not always the ones with different political beliefs. The question then should be: Is it possible to be friends with people who’s life ideology is different fro yours? And the answer is, maybe.

What do you think? Can you be friends with people who have different political beliefs? Let us know in the comments below!
