I can’t tell you the number of times I have sat down and started to write about my political views, because..well, quite frankly; I am fed up! I can’t tell you the number of people who have told me they have lost friends over this years political debate. All I can do is shake my head. Can’t we just agree to disagree? If I decided to stop being friends with people who didn’t share the exact same political views that I do, well I wouldn’t have any friends. Seriously people, when your heart is hurting & you need to reach out to someone are you going to be able to call Donald Trump or Hilary Clinton? No, they have far more important things to deal with than your broken heart…it’s a shame you let your friends go, isn’t it?
Every time I try to write about politics it leads me to the topic of abortion, and then my anger gets the better of me and I go off on this big tangent, and you know what? I don’t want that on my blog. My blog is about love, peace, encouragement…things that I have found don’t mix with the topics of politics or religion. To quote Linus VanPelt:
As many of you know I do believe in God, I have talked about Him often, and I will continue to do so. No, I don’t have actual facts to prove He is real, just like you don’t have actual facts to prove that He isn’t. I have experienced far too many things in my lifetime to not believe in a higher power, and that’s why it is called faith. However, religion is an entirely different subject, and I tend to be more open minded than some of my fellow Christians, so it’s best for me to just keep my mouth shut. I’m sorry but if you don’t know the difference between right or wrong, you lack empathy; not religion.
So here are my final thoughts on this subject. It does not matter to me if you support Trump or Clinton (I personally don’t like either.) It does not matter to me what your beliefs are as long as you respect mine and understand that I will pray for you because I want you to be with me in Heaven one day (I don’t get why people think this is a bad thing?) As long as you are a decent human being who doesn’t intentionally hurt others, as long as you are somewhat of a goofball and feel comfortable enough to be yourself around me, and as long as I can have intelligent conversations with you, we will get along just fine! You get bonus points if you bring me coffee! 🙂
