should i be sorry for my beliefs? nah...

*if you don't feel like being offended today, don't read my post*

i'm going to be real today.  i'm tired of being scared that i'm going to offend others.  i've come to realize that somebody is always going to disagree with you.  that's just the world we live in.
i always like reading the "about me" blog posts, so consider this an "about me" kind of post.

i am a Christian

does that offend anybody?  if it does, i don't care!  here's the deal.  we are all free to believe whatever we want to believe.  but you wanna know what grinds my gears?  the fact that atheists are always pointing fingers at Christians saying that they are offended by our beliefs.  let me tell you something atheists, Christians have been around for years and years and years... why all the fuss now?  why do i keep seeing more and more stories in the news about atheists being offended by a cross, or a Jesus statue or other Christian symbols?  i saw a story a couple years back where a group of atheists in florida got their panties in a wad because a church in their area blessed a nearby road with holy water.  the atheists took it upon themselves to "unbless" that road with what they called "unholy" water.  um are you for real?  so you're going to make fun of Christians?  yeah that's a good way to get respected.  so to all you atheists out there, I BELIEVE IN GOD!!!  and if that offends you... GET OVER IT!

i am a conservative republican

i am not a democrat, i did not vote for obama, and i do not believe in obamacare.  i don't care if you are a democrat, but i choose not to be.  end of discussion. 

i am pro life

i understand that this is a touchy subject, but if pro choice advocates out there can have a voice about their beliefs, so can i.  i believe that life begins at conception.  i do not believe in abortion, and honestly i think it's selfish.  there are so many couples out there who can't have children.  if you don't want to raise that child, give it to somebody who will. 

i do not believe in gay marriage

first of all let me say this.  i am not a gay hater, biggot or a Christian snob.  if you wanna be gay, be gay.  i really don't care!  i love the gays.  i have gay friends.  but let me tell you my stance on gay marriage.  i don't care one bit if you make it a legal "partnership", but please don't involve the bible.  i believe that marriage is a union between a man and a woman under God.  call it something else besides marriage.

i believe what the Bible says

i get so tired of hearing "God changes with the times".  guys the bible is the bible.  what's written in it has been there for many years and it hasn't changed.  i believe 100% what is written in the bible.  quit altering what it says!!

i drink wine and i don't see anything wrong with it

i drink wine.  i love my wine.  do i sometimes drink a little too much?  yes i do.  i do not think that drinking makes you a non Christian or a bad person.  do i think that people sometimes take it too far? of course they do.  you can over indulge in anything.  even food.  so don't tell me that i am a hypocrite for being a Christian and enjoying my alcoholic beverages.

i am non denominational

i am not a baptist, methodist, catholic, church of God or any other denomination.  i am a Christian plain and simple.

if you don't agree with my beliefs, GET OVER IT!  i'm tired of not being able to express my views and opinions in fear of offending others.

so with that said.  i hope you all have a fabulous weekend :)

  4. I'm with you on all of it especially the wine part. I grew up Assembly of God where it was wrong yet it was okay to be obese. WTH?

  5. I agree. I had the pro life pro choice argument with my sisters boyfriend. Sorry I just don't agree with abortion either. Except rape and those other personal issues. I just love this post girly. Thank you :)

  6. I don't agree with A LOT of this. However, that's okay. People don't have to agree on everything. In fact if we all did life would be so dull. You have the right to your opinion and I have the right to mine. And as long as neither of us is trying to force the other to change beliefs then it's all good.
