A Facebook friend posted something extremely offensive today regarding the California wildfires. This is somebody who has a tendency to post fairly controversial opinions, but also posts some insightful things. This is not the first time she has posted something offensive, but this post is possibly hitting closer to home for me because I have friends and relatives who are affected by the fires. In addition, when people have challenged her on other controversial opinions (in the spirit of friendly debate), her responses have been borderline hostile. In general, I do not see people attempting friendly debate with her on Facebook anymore.
Is there a polite way to let her know that I find her post extremely offensive? There are religious aspects to the post, and I am from a similar religious persuasion, but believe she is applying principles inaccurately in this case. Any way of responding will have to communicate that. I realize I could simply defriend her, but that would be noticed and be likely to offend a number of people.
