The "Dissing" Distracts here's an interesting twist. I've seen it in a few scenarios now (secular and non-secular alike). The exact opposite result than was intended. It's a move by one individual (or group) to "help" their point by basically bashing the other side. In rallying support they "dis" (disrespect) the opponent. Man, oh it ever backfiring!! The reaction of the rally-targets???...they feel the other is hateful, bitter, insecure or not having a point. Oops!...not what they were going for! Totally counter-productive.

I wish there was a way to tell the "sides" to come up with actual bolstering their position or point. And then to discuss with respect and grace. Sigh.

It's literally everywhere. Get someone talking about immigrants, Muslims, gay people, Christians, atheists, their bosses, their spouses... You don't even know the "why's" for their just now they hate 'em. Frustrating...
