I Will Not Apologize

There are many people in this Nation who spout "Tolerance and Acceptance." Let me state for the record that there is a fine line between tolerance and acceptance. I tolerate many things in life that I still disagree with, and sometimes we must agree to disagree.
This, however, does not mean I will open myself up to the immature garbage that is spouted. We are part of this world, but not of the world. I am a Christian. I will stand behind what I believe until the last breath leaves my body. I love sharing with others what Christ has created me to be.

“And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns” (Phillipians 1:6).

>    If you are an atheist, I do not hate you for your belief.
>    If you are a Democrat, I do not hate you for your belief.
>    If you are pro same-sex marriage, I do not hate you for your belief.
>    If you are a feminist Nazi, I do not hate you for your belief.
My God said that I am not to judge, because that’s His job. Do I fail Yes, I do. Do you fail? Yes, you do. 
Why? Because we are human. Christ tells us,
“My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is made perfect in weakness” (2 Corinthians 12:9).
So while we are human, we will continue to fail. But because I disagree with your view still does not mean I hate you, wish ill on you, or want to burn crosses to get your attention.

>    Since I am a Christian, don’t hate me.
>    Since I am a Constitutionalist, don’t hate me.
>    Since I believe marriage is between a man and woman, don’t hate me.
>    Since I believe that abortion is murder, and
>    Men should still open the door for ladies, don’t hate me.

HOWEVER, I do not have to have the philosophy crammed down my throat that 
I HAVE TO be tolerant, accepting, peace and love…

If I choose to say God’s name in public, I will. If you don’t like it, don’t listen. If you choose to carry the Qu’ran, that is your freedom OF (not FROM) religion, and yes, atheists still practice a “religion,” whether they choose to think so or not. (The definition of “religion” is a belief or faith or conviction.) If I don’t like it, that’s my problem. All I can do is share my beliefs and build relationships, if you so choose to listen that is up to you.
It means I love you enough to share the MOST important LOVE of my life. With you!

“God sent His only Son into the world, not to condemn the world but to save the world, which was lost.” (John 3:17).

 Now, what is my gripe? I’m tired of seeing Obama turn my country’s (yes, it’s mine too) flag into propaganda for his campaign. It makes me ill to know that there are so many who have given their lives, and there are plenty of military men and women who still fight for that very flag today; yet, he desecrates it with his cause. I have other gripes with him, but that happens to be the latest, and no, if Mitt Romney were doing it, I would NOT be okay with it.My next theory is that it takes a lot of faith to be an atheist. I don’t know if I could muster that much faith and let my life slip by and end up in hell. I will not worship other God’s because I know Who the One true God is. I can discuss ‘religion’ all day long, but my worship is not about religion. 
It is about a relationship.
I can tell you what God started in the Garden of Eden between Adam and Eve, and know that He makes NO mistakes. No, I did not go to Chik-Fil-A in order to tear people down. I went to lift up the name of Christ, and I was blessed. Does this mean I think someone who chooses a homosexual lifestyle should be shot or dragged through the street? Of course not. That’s stupid. But why do we have to deal with craziness such as ‘gay pride day?’ I don’t parade down the street half (or almost) naked slobbering all over my husband because of a HETEROSEXUAL pride day. What kind of logic is that?

It is not logic. It is irrational thinking that makes no sense. It teaches our children nothing.
My next issue is that I believe abortion is murder. Why is that a problem if that’s my opinion? You are supposed to be the tolerant one, right? I am not one of the crazies who murder the doctors and blow up the clinics. That would make me just as bad as the doctor who kills the baby. 

That’s logical, fair reasoning.

Also, I think it’s pretty darn chivalrous of a man who takes the time to hold the door for a lady. I think we have lost the art of teaching our sons to be respectful; so, instead of respecting a gal he hits her, tells her he loves her in order to get what he wants, and last but not least, marriage gets thrown by the wayside. All because of a door? No, all because of a group of women who chose to say “men are not good enough” and “we don’t need you.”

That’s not logical. That’s ridiculous.

Now ladies, you may be sitting there saying, yeah fellows…. R.E.S.P.E.C.T., but don’t think you’re getting off free and clear. In order for him to respect you, stop lifting your skirt tails: Stop leading them on with your pouty eyes, low-cut shirts, daisy-duke shorts, and bra-less wonders. Modest is hottest, whether you believe it or not.

This entire blog post leads me to this: Stop tolerating me. Stop accepting me. It’s your right. Stop throwing your defenses up when someone disagrees with you. And please, stop saying I’m a hater when all I do is exercise my freedom of speech, religion, and the press. STOP spouting the ‘tolerance’ rhetoric out of both sides of your mouth, all the while expecting others to agree with you. 
This is who I am. If you know me personally, you probably can't remember a time that I wasn't blatant, outspoken, and adamant in my beliefs. And I WILL NOT apologize.
Now, that’s logical.
