I agree with Cheyco. There are just a few topic that should NOT be discussed because they can make enemies out of the best of friends and divide a community into factions.
When it comes to things like politics and religion, no amount of debate will change someone's mind, so only harm can come from the discussions.
If you want to discuss politics and religion, there are forums out there for those things (as Cheyco says), or use your private messages.
