We have new people in the office that will be co-workers that I have to interract with every day. It has long since been known throughout my large office that I am a devout Catholic, very conservative in my beliefs and the office leaves it at that. (I’m in the minority big time!) However these few new people have been there about 3-4 weeks now and constantly the subjects of homosexuality, conservatism, how liberal they are in their views etc…, etc…, etc…, all the PC hotbuttons come up.
I have always been very open and honest with people about how I feel but I’m hesitant about this group since I will be working so closely with them. They have no problem espousing (sp?) their views but their views are in the majority of the office. If I stay quiet I feel that they think that I am agreeing with their views.
Do I sit in silence or when asked tell them my views? Yesterday at lunch we were talking about homosexuality and I simply said that if one of my kids came home and told me they were homosexual I would not disown them but tell them the truth that the homosexual act is a grave sin and that I would pray, pray, pray for them to see the light. All I got was blank stares.
