I’ve been watching the news. I’ve been paying attention. Still I’m confused. What’s going on??
Gay life vs people of faith (any faith). People of faith vs atheist’s. Atheist’s vs agnostic’s. You want to be heard, understandable. You want respect, absolutely understandable! It’s been widely known that you want to stand up for your beliefs, you want the right to say and live in a way that honors your core values. That’s awesome, notably worthy of respect simply because you’re human. You have that right. The right to choose how to live, what to believe or not believe, and speak your peace about it!
We all know about war. Why is there war? Bottom line……major conflict! Is war necessary? Sometimes, yes. Why sometimes yes? Well….. for freedom. Right? Do you agree? It would be “nice” to settle disputes, and or conflicting beliefs with a handshake while agreeing to disagree but as you all know, this has not been possible between nations. A handshake and a smile usually means there’s a hidden agenda, and keep your eyes open because somethings coming!
How free is speech? The truth is it’s not free! Freedom of speech will cost you something. It may cost you your job, your position at your job, your mate (yes, it’s happened), and most obvious, freedom of speech may cost you your life (war).
In a life without combat armed with weapons (yes you who are not fighting overseas at war for our freedom), why not allow those who don’t share your beliefs be? Why push so hard to the point of cruelty just to be “right”? Why is there a battle going on between who’s right and who’s not, and how we should live oppose to how we should not live? What’s really going on here? WAR. War among people of all nations and nationalities, who fight for there own values and beliefs.
To those who share in gay rights, agnosticism, atheism, people who are faith based (all faith’s)…ask yourselves, who are you to judge? It is a cruel act to be so judgmental and to mistreat anyone in anyway simply because a person or persons do not share your beliefs. Take notice of the anger that you portray when enraged with such conviction because you are in conflict with someone of opposite opinions/beliefs. Remember, only those with small minds are “ignorant” to understanding that all things are beautiful in there own way regardless of opposition. Your “right” does not make it right for someone else.
If you are at peace with your belief’s, why judge, argue, raise your blood pressure just to make a point, to “win”? Let your actions be your words. Live your life, set an example, show that you like being “you.” Speak your mind but know when to stop. Know that you’ve done all you could do for your cause, then be still.
For those of you who are at war, armed with weapons…. and to those who made it home, Thank you!
Thank you for sacrificing your life for mine.
Live, love, honor and laugh out loud! Prioritize you.
