It is amazing thing to live in the day in which we do. A truly amazing time period in our nation’s history as we live out what looks to be the slippery slope headed toward our becoming a nation that has lost it’s ability to possess any level of common sense.
We now blame “crime” on guns – which is the equivalent of blaming arson on matches. Our nation is working hard to celebrate same sex marriage – yet if that were God’s plan for marriage then the human race would literally self-destruct out of simple inability to procreate. One issue that so deeply permeates our present culture is the idea of tolerance.
Tolerance, by definition, is that you and I can peacefully coexist though we are two different people with polar opposite value systems. Yet that is not how tolerance is being practiced today. Tolerance has now shifted in it’s practical definition in that it has come to mean that you must fully embrace and totally endorse any form of value system, and if you do not, then you are a hateful, anti-intellect who lives in the squalor of bigotry.
We are now raising future generations to believe that they have the right never to be offended. Here’s the funny thing about this idea of tolerance … those who preach it are the most intolerant group walking the planet! Those who preach tolerance demand that you be completely tolerant of their way of life, for if you are not, then you are boycotted and treated as if you are not worthy of the name “human being.”
Stand up in what you beleive in, and stick with it do not waver. Research what people say and have a logical, rational retorical when someone disagrees with you. Like my grandma said “Know your friends and your enemies”
