Thanks for the thoughtful reply Evan. I think your framing of it being a binary vs non-binary choice is a crucial observation. In the West we tend to think in binary terms. Religion, politics, whatever it is, it’s difficult to break out of that way of thinking.

So I’m often finding that I have to tell myself to look for the good in what the other side is saying, and that the issue we’re discussing might just be a false dilemma.
