THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT..... has changed.....



America the beautiful has just become more beautiful with the Rainbow flags flying high in celebration of the now legal marriages for all citizens regardless of sexual orientation.  Sounds "simple" right?   oh no......

There are so many people and churches and voices all competing to win you over... by demanding ...that you think, interpret and react the same way they are to this change in our national law.

I went to visit as friend this week and this friend told me "I went to church yesterday and they encouraged us to FIGHT for what we believe in"  "the preacher even said it ,  we have to fight" ...he then proceeded to tell me that there will be no more elections and everyone needs a gun...including me.... to protect my interests because war in the United States was about to begin.

There are those that say ..... oh we need equal rights for everyone EXCEPT those that are flying their rebel flags....thats right.... you can believe whatever you want EXCEPT  "that" ..because the rebel flag is obviously causing problems.... HA!   imagine that.....  reminds me of the days when those that wore black trench coats were automatically devil worshippers and those that wear hoodies must be up to "no good"  ...those that fly that flag .... the rebel flag...must be racist....

And those that fly that rainbow flag are "going to hell" .... according to some....  reference to the bible and hate crimes etc etc and even the threat that if a church refuses to marry the same sex couple they can lose their funding ....

WHAT A BUNCH OF MESS........

and then there are those FENCE SITTERS ....that is me....... TRULY I SIT on the Neutral Ground, the median strip because NONE of what other people do bothers me AT ALL ,  except VIOLENCE to other people, animals or things.... I don't sit on any fence and I think it takes more than PRAYER ...it takes people standing up for what they believe in.... and the law to step up and STOP THE VIOLENCE AND HATEFUL WORDS ....and ACTIONS  if you want to just PRAY about it .... you are not really neutral  you are part of the problem......

AS FAR AS GAY MARRIAGE......
I think the very BEST barometer of if you are neutral or not is ....ask yourself....what would you do if one of your children wanted to marry another of the same sex.......I say that because I know several people who made an ABOUT FACE when it came to that question is when it HIT HOME and I know people who have jumped off the top of the fence onto a "definite side" when it was "one of their own"  .... what would you say / do / how would you react and what advice would you have if it were your child?  I found that I am indeed a fence sitter and neutral in this situation ...  I totally agree that yelling or stomping or imposing your thoughts / beliefs on others does not work AT ALL in any situation..... I just don't agree that you can REALLY know where you stand on the subject if you haven't been "subjected"     this is something in which PRAYER NOT ACTION  or VIOLENCE OR FIGHTING IS NEEDED...IT IS THE PROBLEM  .. those that are encouraging others to fight are the problem..

making your profile a rainbow enhanced photo on FB is not helping, or promoting , it is just inciting those that are "anti" the cause... I CHOOSE TO LET IT BE

AS FAR AS THE CONFEDERATE FLAG:   I CHOOSE TO  LET IT BE..... why remove the right to wave your flag on your license plate?   or promote your heritage?   why can you fly one flag and not another?    is it REALLY HURTING ANYONE?  the noise people are making and radical removals of this symbol causes more pain than not.... NOW PRAY ABOUT THIS .... why act with violence?  why make news when there is NO NEWS..... a mentally ill person carried the flag committing heinous crime... is that the FLAG or the PERSON?   HAS AMERICA  LOST ALL COMMON SENSE?


I think some people just need a cause.... a soap box.... or something to fight about...

ARE WE NOT THE LAND OF THE FREE?   LET IT BE!!
