I don’t protest and throw things if someone doesn’t believe like I do. If my coffee isn’t HOT when it comes to the table I will drink it, If you run a business or sell a product and I like the business or product I will buy it and use it. I will not ask you if you are Catholic or atheist. That is your business, your personal beliefs. I have always liked America for that. But it seems things lately are changing.
If a company announces they would prefer 2 and 3 yrs olds not be brought into their businesses Then I am not going to protest or post nasty things about them (I don’t think), it is their business, if I don’t like it, I just won’t patronize them.
If a man wants to live with a man and the same with a woman and a woman. That is their business, not mine. Whether I approve or not, doesn’t enter into the equation. I will not tell anyone how to live (EXCEPT MY FAMILY, BY GOODNESS!) (of course that ain’t worked too well either! LOL)
Today every ‘Group’ wants to protest someone else who doesn’t see eye to eye with them. I was disappointed in the Supreme Court ruling recently concerning the ‘Westboro Baptist Church’; they can protest and display offensive signs at the funeral of anyone they disagreed with, primarily our soldiers. Displaying signs such as, “Thank God for Dead soldiers.” But our supreme court said they have a right. I think if I lost a son and someone held a poster like that I would have to smack the crap out of someone! I always wonder where does YOUR rights end, and MINE begin?
Someone is protesting Chic-Filet because the company does not agree with the Groups stand. THEN DON’T BUY CHIC-FILET BY GOODNESS! The Chicago mayor said Chic Filet doesn’t reflect Chicago’s values, but evidently the porno shops and strip joints do???? Politics got no business with businesses, until they break the law.
You can protest forever and you won’t change one’s mind. You can protest all your life and you will never get most protestant and all Catholic churches to believe abortion is okay. You cannot force or legislate morality and opinions.
aaaah I am just upset. There are and have been reasons to protest to change laws. The Black population had a right to protest segregation. They were refused service in many restaurants etc. But Chic-Filet is not refusing to serve anyone. They do not care what you believe, they will smile and serve you. Let them run their business.
Thanks for coming by the log.

Letting go is easy….. Hanging on is hard.
Pride is easy………… Humility is hard.
Excusing oneself is easy… Excusing others is hard. ( see my entry above ( ))
