When someone takes away the "safety"

Recently I've had some conversations with a friend that have turned pretty ugly. In each instance, she's presented an opinion about something she has strong feelings about, and I've had the nerve to disagree with her. 

I've tried to state how I feel about the subject only to be met with the equivalent of "you're an idiot if you don't feel the same as I do" from my friend. 

What I want to work on is creating a sense of mutual purpose and mutual respect. Hopefully this can help us talk about the issue in a way that she can feel safe making her point without being demeaning to me.
