A woman wrote a book which she is entitled to do. She shared her opinions and thoughts and what works for her. She is promoting that book. Yes?
Okay… so is that any different than someone with a different set of beliefs or a different lifestyle than hers writing a book sharing their opinions and thoughts and what works for them? I know we all have very strong feelings about many topics.
Everyone single one of us.
But isn’t part of being a good ________(belief of choice) tolerance and kindness and compassion for everyone regardless of our differences?
Isn’t tolerance and kindness and compassion what makes all of us good and decent human beings?
It doesn’t matter what lifestyle or religion a person chooses…
I don’t care who has sex with men or women. I don’t care who loves white or black or brown. I am tolerant of all views, lifestyles, and belief systems.
The idea is to love UNCONDITIONALLY … love everyone, understanding that we may from time to time be exposed to rhetoric about views that are different from our own.
Personally, I’m sick of all of it. I’m sick of soap box rants and television stories, commercials and advertisements… sick of news articles and all other forms of shoving propaganda down my throat for the rights of every single person who lives a lifestyle that is a variant of the majority.
And I know that doesn’t sound fair. It just seems like the people who are promoting this or that issue are doing so out of a need to feel special. They haven’t yet figured out that they are already special. They are living breathing uniquely individual people and are special in every way. I don’t need to see a parade or fundraiser or different colored ribbons to know that about any person.
There are so many more important things we as a society need to focus on.
TOLERANCE should be right up there on top of to-do list.
But what I see are radicals on both sides of every fence bashing one another, slinging around horrible wishes of evil on the opposing side, and always believing with die-hard conviction that their viewpoint is the ONLY right one. In reality, the viewpoint that is right is the one that makes each individual person a better person.
