The only intolerance I see anymore is the one of bashing Christians. Are we or are we not a nation with freedom of speech? I see groups I personally do not agree with speaking things I don’t even want to think about and others displaying their “expression of themselves” and no one is shocked. But let one Christian say what they believe and they are crucified as being intolerant. Are we not all tolerating each other? I’m not only supposed to keep my mouth shut while things that gross me out happen all around me, I’m supposed to “agree.” Not happening.
Our freedoms are disappearing daily. We need to make sure we all have freedom, not just a few.
Being a Christian, and also a conservative, I believe the Bible is true. If you know me, you know I walk in a very strong love for everyone. I do not force my beliefs on you, but I also do not have to agree with someone else’s choices. So for those of you who disagree, stop bullying, just because some people don’t what to conform to your thinking. Trying to shut down our freedom is bullying and we have just as much right to speak as every other person on this planet.
So say what you want, and put what you want on your house and in your home. I believe you have every right to do that.
Mine will be the house with the cross and the manger scene outside, with bright cheery lights on a tree in a peaceful, drama free, happy home.

It's tough. Christians want to say what they believe. Homosexuals want to say what they believe. Both sides are pushing their beliefs into the mainstream. Homosexuals are winning. Christians are crucified in the process for being in the minority. It appears that the hate for Christians and their known beliefs is still quite high. I don't understand why anyone is surprised that a Christian holds this view?
People want to talk about freedoms of speech versus freedom from consequence. Phil is dealing with consequences... so is A&E. I don't think being a Christian is the only thing that has consequences. Being a Christian is no more of a decision than being homosexual.
