This is Getting Old

(Well, this is different. What is this? I have no idea, but here it is anyway.)

I am tired…

…of the selective tolerance.

…of the hate.

…of the contempt.

…of the judgement.

I am frustrated…

…with the assumptions of ignorant people.

…with the preconceptions and the misconceptions.

…with the critics who know nothing about my lifestyle.

…with the offensive stereotypes.

I am angry…

…because I am mocked for my beliefs while others are coddled.

…because I am deemed an unsophisticated idiot.

…because I see my rights and freedoms slowly slipping away and that seems perfectly acceptable to most people.

I am angry at my own silence. 

I am…

…a Christian.

…a believer in the Bible as it is written.

…a recovering non-believer.

…a former evolutionist.

…a person who makes mistakes but who wants to do better.

…a person who believes Jesus will save anyone who accepts him – all you have to do is ask.

I am not…

…perfect.

…a bigot.

…a homophobe.

…”anti-women.”

…an imbecile.

I am not your enemy.
