The Rogue Speaks:
In the last two weeks, two very sweet friends have forwarded political posts to me. They don't know me like you do, so they don't realize that I am not of the same political persuasion. Just because you support one political party, please do not assume that all your friends support that party as well.
I receive way more emails from the opposition party supporters than I do from my own. I'm not sure what this means, exactly, but I would like to think that my own party is a lot more comfortable in what it stands for than is the opposition, and doesn't need to send out crude and insulting emails about the other party. We're a lot smarter than that. Eventually, the other party will screw up on its own, and it doesn't need any "help" from me.
This goes for religion as well. I am very comfortable with my own spiritual beliefs, and they are very personal to me, so I rarely discuss my spirituality with anyone. Just because you are a member of a certain religious group, don't assume that all your friends are members of that group as well. If and when you find out that you and I do not have the same beliefs, please don't try to convert me, or admonish me for my beliefs. And if you no longer want to be my friend just because my beliefs are different, believe me, that is your loss.
Just because you and I were both raised in the south, don't assume that I believe one race is superior to another. I figured out that falsehood on my own, when I was a child. Some people never do, though. Byron De La Beckwith, Jr., 64 years old, still believes that the white race is superior, and still freely uses the "N" word. In case you don't recognize that name, his father, Byron De La Beckwith, was, in 1994, convicted of murdering civil rights leader, Medgar Evers on June 12, 1963. 64 is a lot of years to be so outspoken and stay so ignorant, don't you think??
Now you know how I feel about the three most polarizing subjects in America today. And just because you have a lot more interesting offerings to read on Jenny's AlphabeThursday , I urge you to click on the link and start reading!!
