We can agree to disagree.
I have been thinking a lot about what happened on Wednesday with Chick Fil-a. I know Mike Huckabee said lets make Wednesday "appreciation day". I participated. We as a family waited in line for about 45 minutes to get some food. I appreciate that Dan Cathy stood up for his beliefs. I appreciate all those who waited in line to show their appreciation.
I think every person on this earth has their right to choose whether I think it is write or not. I know I do a lot of things people don't agree with. That's fine. It is their right to agree or disagree. What I don't understand is, if I disagree with someone because of their lifestyle I am called intolerant. I wanted to know what the actual definition of tolerance is. According to dictionary.com this is the definition:
"Tolerance: a fair, objective, and permissive attitude toward those whose opinions, practices, race, religion, nationality, etc., differ from one's own;"
Unless I am reading this wrong, don't we all have a right to our own opinion?
There was a quote posted on Facebook that I thought was so appropriate.
"Our culture has accepted two huge lies. The first is that if you disagree with someones lifestyle you have to fear them or hate them. The second is that to love someone means you agree with everything they believe or do. Both are nonsense. You don't have to compromise convictions to be compassionate." -Rick Warren
"Just because someone supports marriage between a man and a woman does not mean they are against gays." ~Kenyon Curtis
This battle has been waging on for centuries. Will it stop anytime soon? No, I don't think it will. We all need to be respectful towards one another.
I believe we all need to love each other. I believe we need to respect other peoples opinions. I believe if because I don't agree with you, you could respect my opinion as I respect your opinion.
WE CAN AGREE TO DISAGREE!
I would love to hears everyones thoughts. Please be kind and respectful.
