“People don’t listen to understand. They listen to reply” – Stephen Covey
This graphic came from the group Christians Tired of Being Misrepresented; an interesting group which I’ve questioned previously (see Are They Really Christian). It’s interesting to me that society has broken the discussion down to a few trite responses where the only response is “welcome to civilized society” or “you’re an idiot”. Is the discussion really that simple? Have all of the responses been covered? Does either side really care to listen to what the other is saying?
