NONSENSE

 

o·pin·ion [uh-pin-yuhn] 

noun

1. a belief or judgment that rests on grounds insufficient to produce complete certainty.

Since the creation of humanity, people have had different opinions. Thanks to technology, we are now are able to see and hear everyone’s opinion more transparently than ever before. This has apparently resulted in more outspoken and public opposition to people who have different opinions from our own.

This has led to protests where some throw out Ben & Jerry’s ice cream in opposition to gay rights, while others throw out Chick-Fil-A sandwiches in support of gay rights. This has been going on for years with everything from Disney World to Pepsi. Both sides then call foul on the other for their boycott and I say it’s all NONSENSE!

For those on both sides of the issue, I implore you to stop acting like someone’s opinion is an infringement on your rights. It isn’t and it never will be. The only thing we do when we throw out Ben & Jerry’s and Chick-Fil-A is waste really great food and on a more serious note, we push those who are different from us even farther away.

Something tells me that arguing over the opinions of those running a chicken and ice cream joint isn’t what Jesus wanted us to do when He left us. LET’S STOP THE NONSENSE and learn to get along even when we don’t agree.

    Well said, The examples you pointed out do more to take us off course than it does to redirect us to scripture and what we are called to do. 🙂

  2. Thanks for the thoughts George!
