This is not a political comment, but only a ‘let’s give each other some respect’ comment.
So many times do I listen on the radio, the TV, and in conversation on people’s ‘right of speech’ and ‘right of belief.’ However, on a daily basis these very same people (and many others) who are posting on social media and commenting in the news about this are the very ones ‘judging’ one’s right of whom to vote for, and how to think. Isn’t the hot debate right now about freedom of speech/belief because of the amazing freedom our country has because of the many who fought and died for that right? Well then, why is there harassment on social media and on TV about whom we each are individually free to vote for, and free to feel politically and spiritually however we want based upon our Constitution of the United States of America?
We are so quick to ‘judge’ those who violated someone else’s rights (whether it is politically, spiritually, or ethnically), however, on any social media platform I constantly read that ‘you are not my friend if you vote for, or believe in….” Isn’t that just as prejudice or unethical?
“You, therefore, have no excuse, you who pass judgement on someone else, for at whatever point you judge another, you are condemning yourself, because you who pass judgement do the same things…. Do not judge. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged…. Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your bother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye….” (from book of Matthew and Romans)
Let’s all take a minute before we post or speak, and acknowledge that not everyone is going to agree with you or your beliefs. Let’s just all get along for the better good of our country. #nojudgement
