:: Regards the question somewhat suspiciously:: To be honest, I accept people's views as theirs as long as they accept my views as mine. I tend to tune out or just walk away from people who try ranting at me in an effort to convince me otherwise, but then again, the best way to cause me to put my brain into autistic mode (Heh!) is to loudly rant at me about *anything* whether it's religion or fandom or politics or the weather or dog ownership. (Yes, I have been ranted at about the fact that I don't own a dog.) I feel that a real friend will accept you and your views on something, even if you're completely at polar opposites; unless of course that someone subscribe to views that deny basic human rights to certain classes of people. I'm looking at you people who regard women/non-Caucasians/children/GLBT people/the disabled/the elderly as non-humans. That's really the only line I'd draw in the sand. That and politics are something I rarely discuss anyway unless it's something I really care about (such as taking care of the earth or better crime prevention/recognizing new crimes such as cyberbullying).

Yeah. I totally agree with that. I personally love having intense discussions - and some of my friends do too, and sometimes we disagree for the sake of disagreeing (and articulating points), but ultimately, agree to disagree is a perfectly acceptable situation. Live and let live, aye? ^^

*blinks* You got ranted at for not having a dog? Why? I mean, I'm a dog lover and even I can't understand that one.

Personally, my view on things can be summed up as 'so long as you don't hurt anyone or get on my nerves, I don't care what your opinions are', although like with you scumbags are the exception to the rule. The fact that I don't give a monkey's about political issues unless they affect me or mine helps.
