  • Everybody gets along despite differences in political, social, and economic positions.
  • We all learn from one another.
  • There's a saying that you shouldn't talk about religion and politics, and it's great to have found a place to talk about both.
  • I knew I wanted a place like this—I didn't know just how badly I wanted it, especially in this day and age. It's a great pleasure to have found it.
  • I needed a place to express myself.
