Why do you care what I think?
You know what the problem is with people today? Not that everyone has an opinion, but if you don’t agree with it, you are immediately disliked, hated and sometimes physically assaulted. How does what I think on a certain issue effect you? It doesn’t! At least focus your frustration (not violence) on someone who is actually in a place to help or hinder the issue at hand. Like a local politician, a wealthy businessman or the President of the United States. This is why we have elections!!! Unfortunately, most people are not informed enough to vote for the person that actually supports their beliefs and principles.
So I don’t believe in gay marriage. So what? How does that effect you? That doesn’t mean I’m anti-gay. I really don’t care actually. I just prefer it not be labeled as “marriage”, that’s it. In the big scheme of things it’s just a word. It’s just an opinion, my opinion and I’m entitled to it. I don’t believe in abortion. How does that effect you? It’s my belief. So why do you care what I think? I’m not the one giving the abortion or preventing it. I’m from the North. If this were the 1860s I’d be a Yankee. I do support the Confederate Flag however, ANYWHERE in the United States. Am I a racist? No! What I am is a huge fan of history though. I’m looking at it from a historical perspective, not racial. If it was so offensive, why wasn’t anyone complaining 150+ years ago right after slavery was ending? How about during the Civil Rights movement of the 60s? On a side note, The only reason anyone is offended by it today is somewhere out there some media mogul pumped up some people in to a frenzy and told them to be offended. At least more offended than they were. See that, that was an opinion.
I know and work with many people who disagree with me and many I disagree with. I don’t push my opinions on them and they don’t push theirs on me - and that’s the way it should be. To be sure they may look at me like I’m crazy and I definitely look at some of them like they are drinking cool-aid as well. But at the end of the day we are all in this together. The point is, my opinion is mine, and yours is yours. I don’t hate you or others for not agreeing with me. Just live and let live. Unless someone tries to push their opinion on you, leave them alone and don’t judge them. EVERYONE is entitled to their opinion and their first amendment right.
