My views on the state of America today..God... who will I offend now?

Well I'm sad to say that over the last few months I have lost some friends on Facebook over my political and religious views.Who in my opinion are not true friends to begin with ,because true friends know my beliefs deep down and accept me for them. Also I am not going to change my way of thinking anymore than they will change theirs. I post stuff on my wall that I feel connects to me and not everyone agrees on it, nor do they have to. Can you imagine what a boring world this would be if we all agreed on the same thing? Just because I don't believe what you believe doesn't mean I hate you , you have to prove to me by your actions that you are a jerk for me to dislike you and just because you have a belief in something that is not enough for me to hold against you.If we were forced to believe in then same thing then we have another name for that...communism.

Fortunately this is America, and for now ..home of the free. Sadly the way things are heading it may not be that way for long. I want to be clear in my postings that I am not racist because I believe that the Confederate Flag shouldn't be taken down, I am not homophobic because I believe the lesbian couple shouldn't have sued the bakery that refused to make the cake and also I don't think they should have treated the couple the way they did either they were both idiots putting their kids in danger.. There are a lot of things I don't believe in and this country is starting to be one of them .We are so afraid to offend anyone these days, but we sure are quick to pull a gun on them, to call them a racist, a religious zealot because of their beliefs, when in fact we don't even know who they are. Just because someone likes something, or posts something doesn't make them a terrible person. If we were all judged by our actions or inactions or things that come out of our mouths, then my God we would all be labeled racists or fascists. What I do not believe in is forcing our personal beliefs down everyone's throat, that is offensive to me. I believe that this is America and whether I like devil worshippers, or racists, or religious fanatics, or gays and lesbians or any one else for that matter....THEY ARE THERE and they are not going away because you sue them or take down a flag or pass gay marriage. You cannot change these people only accept that they are who they are and move on. Instead we are petitioning the government to take away our beliefs and rights because we feel offended, but how long before someone is offended by your belief and the government takes that away too? Then what will you say? You have no say now because what's good for the goose is good for the gander.

I am afraid that we are not seeing the bigger picture here and it is this. While we sit and fight amongst each other we being played by our government and we are too busy hating each other to see it. Elections are coming up and this crap always is a whirlwind of controversy to make certain politicians look good when in reality they are all a bunch of assholes who are no longer for the people but for themselves! We can't see past our own agendas to see the bigger picture and with this taking away of flags and suing people over beliefs we are giving our government too much control and soon I fear that it will become a socialist society where we are all made to believe one thing and to obey. You want to talk about slavery? We are already slaves to our pride and we are in a losing battle. Welcome to the new America ...Land of the sensitive and home of the spineless. When will we join together as AMERICANS and be one? Last time it took 9 /11 for us to see past our hatred for each other to band together in love. I pray that will not be the case again.
