My Dad always said if you want to loose friends then discuss religion and politics with them.( He was born in 1907)
He had a rule that neither was to be discussed in his home. I never discuss either with friends or acquaintances, only with immediate family members.
I do not talk politics or religion with friends. However, all of my friends are religious and have faith. I do not discuss politics with my 2 friends that voted for the ex President. No point in arguing over the fact we are different.
I don't talk politics with friends that I know are opposite me in beliefs (or may be opposite). However, with Facebook you often see their posts and vice versa. I have noticed that relationships appear more strained in the last year, but with COVID, my interactions were few and far between. We'll see how it goes as we get out of the pandemic. I snooze people on Facebook if I don't want to see political posts.
