Well I mean it's hard I'm speaking really for the Christian community I mean -- conservative by nature.
I know where I'm gonna vote.
But at the same time I have to building gauge those -- oppose the view that I have and I think we've lost a bit of that art in our culture today.
You say as a Christian we should be elevating or raising the bar having a discussion you say we shouldn't be demonizing those who oppose our views.
