I’ve been told I am stubborn, a racist, homophobic,
an Islamophobe, that I have bend to others way of
thinking and have to give up my guns.
No I’m not, no I won’t, and no I can’t.
Being a seasoned resident of our once United
States I cannot remember a time when so many
groups get so upset over imagined slights. My
family has never owned slaves and we are lifetime
residents of the first state to abolish slavery.
We don’t care who you want to marry, we are already
married, and we live in a state that passed same sex
marriage a while ago.
We don’t stay up nights thinking of insults about
your chosen religion, it isn’t a priority. Just so
long as you don’t step on our religious rights we
will get along fine.
As for gun rights the answer is simple. You aren’t
getting mine. I believe if you have enough money to
buy them legally you should be allowed to have as
many as you want and Constitutional carry should be
the law of the land.
I have to add the recent decision of our Supreme
Court on same sex marriage. We have listened to
proponents tell us it is a victory for “love”.
Yet in the next sentence we’re told they’re not
done fighting and want to force Christian churches
to marry them.
Here’s the deal. Your right to marry, given to you
by the court, does not trump our right to practice
our religion as we have been taught. Freedom of
religion and the ban on governmental intervention
of said feedom is given to us in the 1st Amendment.
That Amendment was ratified on December 15, 1791.
In case you forgot it reads:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment
of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;
or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or
the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to
petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
This is my opinion. It is based on 64 years of
living in Iowa and you may not agree. That would be
your option. If you disagree and wish to respond
please remember I do not tolerate fabricated truths,
liberal logic, or profanity.
Comments are always welcome.
