Spiritual Consequences of the Presidential Election

by Rev. Jenny Caughman

People have long said that if you want to avoid problematic discussions, don’t talk about politics and religion. These are deeply personal convictions around which people typically have a very low tolerance for disagreement. Following one of the ugliest, lowest political rivalries in US history, this may in fact be changing. The 2016 presidential election has shown us that while people still hold fast to their convictions, their tolerance for disagreement has become higher, which results in a very negatively charged atmosphere.
