    Maren Showkeir commented on Maren Showkeir's blog post THE SELF-RIGHTEOUS HUMAN CONDITION

    I love stories for illustrating a point, and this one illustrates what I have been thinking about beautifully. It seems like the experience of your father is far too common, and if we can start talking to people with curiosity rather than judgment, maybe the conversation would be more civil and s... ...Read more

    Maren Showkeir commented on Maren Showkeir's blog post FRYING EGGS ON THE OVERHEATED IMMIGRATION RHETORIC

    Ha! Thank you Jeevan. I posted something very similar on my facebook page yesterday! Had an interesting conversation with my hairdresser today, who agreed that she was tired of the divisive rhetoric and said she avoided the topic at all costs unless she already knew how people felt about the... ...Read more

    Maren Showkeir commented on Maren Showkeir's blog post FRYING EGGS ON THE OVERHEATED IMMIGRATION RHETORIC

    Well, your friend and I have something in common: I believe in a nation of laws, and I believe in following the law.

    Maren Showkeir commented on Jeevan Sivasubramaniam's blog post BK Books for All?

    I don't see why well-reasoned, civil conservative views shouldn't be represented by BK, which would of course exclude Ann Coulter, Glenn Beck and their ilk (an underutilized word.) One of the things I admired about Obama's "The Audacity of Hope" was his ability to argue other people's points... ...Read more

    Maren Showkeir commented on Jeevan Sivasubramaniam's blog post The uproar over "Draw the Prophet" Day

    Like you, Jeevan, I have mixed feelings about this. I know that people advocate tolerance, but when tolerance includes tolerating religious beliefs that justify violence via sacred texts, that is really problematic to me. And most religions, if you read their texts carefully, can be used to justi... ...Read more
