So that initial promise I made to not write about politics… I completely and utterly lied. I’m sorry. Sue me.
If I’ve learned one thing from my friend @BryanJones it is to avoid discussing politics on Twitter. Be positive and don’t be divisive. I swear on cheesecake I try but last night I opened my big fat mouth.
I told someone that they made me ashamed to be a conservative.
It’s true and I stand by it but I should have bitten my tongue. So in response I decided to blog about it. (Makes sense to me)
Without linking to the lunacy let’s summarize the opposing viewpoint as…
Islam is a militant religion set on destroying the U.S. and world domination. I am an America-hating Marxist blinded by establishment media to the fact that Islam seeks to enslave me as dhimmi. etc…
First and foremost I’m not diving into a debate on Islam. I’m not an expert and I’ve never personally read the Koran in its entirety. My personal belief is that crazy people can twist whatever they like to make someone else the enemy.
So why am I writing about this?
I realize this is a bit extreme but I’m pretty sure its legal to want to destroy me because of my belief system, stunning good looks, or my lack of a jump shot. What the law says is you can’t act on that belief. Is it wise to be aware of crazy people that want to me damage? Sure.
There’s this little book I subscribe to that says,
be as wise as snakes and as innocent as doves Matt 10:16
Think and believe whatever you like but take action on your belief to destroy me, my family, my church, or my country and you’ll find yourself at the business end of a Smith & Wesson or the United States Marine Corp (depending).
I’m not naive. I understand the world is a dangerous place but I’m not willing to start rounding up Muslims and deporting them solely based on their belief system. Rumor has it some of them are even decent America loving folks.
Reminds me of an old song… Freedom’s just another word… that people use when it benefits them.
