A Rule of Etiquette?
Don't Talk About Politics or Religion
"After all, conversation between two people is very easy. You find a mutually interesting topic, although it may lead to one about which you don't agree. Then take care! Much better to withdraw unless you can argue without bitterness or bigotry." ~ Emily Post's Etiquette, 12th Revised Edition, 1969
The library holds a wide range of books about religion and religious thought, including sacred texts/religious documents and interpretations of them. Here's a very short list of recent titles that have received broad media, book buyer, and library patron attention. Pick and choose and of course, we welcome suggestions for purchase.
