IF IT WEREN’T FOR THIS PESKY THING CALLED LOVE,
I COULD BE A LOT MORE LIBERAL
I recently saw this post on Facebook. It was preceded by a comment to introduce it:
"Ah...common sense ?? Too much for many people to understand...”
Here is the post:
Don’t like gay marriages? Don’t get one
Don’t like cigarettes? Don’t smoke them.
Don’t like alcohol? Don’t drink it.
Don’t like drugs? Don’t do them.
Don’t like porn? Don’t watch it.
Don’t like sex? Don’t do it.
Don’t like abortions? Don’t get one.
Don’t like your rights taken away?
Don’t take someone else’s away.
When I read it, there were two additional comments, both agreeing with the post. One of them simply said, “truth.”
Usually, I do not quickly comment on a post that someone makes. Facebook people are often pretty touchy, and if you make a comment that in any way disagrees with what was said, you very soon find yourself in a discussion, and sometimes a rather testy one. I don’t like to be in one of these. Besides, these back-and-forths seldom lead to anything constructive. I am actually just a peaceful man. I’m not looking for a fight.
Because of this, I at first did not comment, but the problem was that this post really began to bother me. In some ways, it is a commentary on the direction that our culture is heading. Actually we have already traveled a good ways down this road.
After about a day I went back to it and made a comment. I tried to make it non-confrontational....
