Why Does Tolerance Only Apply To Me?

I believe God created the heavens and the earth. I don’t believe the Darwinian Hypothesis of evolution.

I believe God designed marriage to be a man and a woman who could procreate.

I believe life begins at conception and when you take a baby from the womb at any age it is no different from taking its life a day after it is born.

I believe the Bible is God’s Word.

I believe faith in the Gospel, the death of Jesus for my sin, his burial and resurrection is the ONLY way anyone will get to heaven.

I believe in the Constitution of the USA and the Declaration of Independence, Which means I believe in the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. I have the right to free speech and to protect my family with a firearm.

I believe the clear intent of the founding fathers who came from a country with a state-run church, was to keep the government out of the church’s business. The separation of church and state was to keep the state from meddling with the church, they all wanted the church to influence the state, have you ever read the monuments in Washington D.C. If they didn’t want their faith to influence why all the Scripture quotes everywhere?

I believe you have the right to totally disagree with me on everything I believe and I have the right to disagree with you on everything you believe BUT we both still have the right to believe what we believe without being called names when I disagree with you.

I’m not a bigot or a homophobe or trying to hold women down because of my beliefs. The biggest intolerance in America today is by those who do not believe what I wrote here towards those who do. It is funny that virtually everyone who lived in America the first 150-200 years would look at what I wrote and never blink. Today let anyone whisper they would still believe these things and we are mocked, called names, abused all because they say we are intolerant! I have felt more hatred, anger and intolerance by people who disagree with what I wrote today than I have ever seen by Christians or even the vilified Tea Party.

If those holding views opposite of mine had their way, we would not be allowed to live in the USA, the land of the FREE. It is pretty sad. I’m tired of it and will no longer stand quietly by and watch our God-given rights slowly be eroded. Let’s have a free exchange of ideas without all the hate and name calling.

Blessings

About Scott Ranck

Enjoying life with my wife Gayle and our Yorkie, Zoe boy. I've come to believe life begins when through brokenness I can embrace it fully and openly. I've learned the human drama is an adventure and all of us are made of the same stuff. The Lord is the only being who knows me fully and he has an individual educational plan of life long learning for me and I'm enrolled. This blog is all about what I'm learning.
