    With Exception...

    I also believe in putting effort into seeing if your beliefs are wrong... and admitting when they are. Your opinion has little value if you never challenge it.

    that I was shy and quiet only speak when spoken to. But there is one thing that I can't stand, when people start to distort my words or accused me of something without proof, I will hold my ground never back out, fight for my right and what I believe is true for I was not raised...

    Dear Bigoted Pastor

    Here is a letter I wrote to the Pastor of a so called Christian Community church. Dear Pastor, I find your church to be fostering bigotry and hatred, because there is an unspoken rule to "don't ask and don't tell." This is in reference to how you do not welcome nor accept...

    Dont Be Afraid

    I too believe in standing up for what you believe in. We as human beings live in a world filled with love, hate, crime, sorrow, happiness and injustice. Many of these as well as others touch each and everyone of us throughout our lives. And with these emotions I would hope that...

    This Has Been A Hard Achievement For Me..

    Suffice it to say I was extremely conditioned, through many, many events throughout my early years, to never open my mouth, never express thoughts or feelings --- let alone my own beliefs... I'm determined about speaking out and standing up for what I believe in now though...

    Stand Up For What You Believe

    I very much believe in standing up for what I believe in. I don't understand how someone could say that I am "wrong" because of my beliefs. Can't we live in a world where we respect people's different opinions? Why should I be made to feel guilty because of my opinion? I refuse...

    Sometimes there's just no alternative.

    You have to. Otherwise there will always be someone who will walk all over you. Even if you lose the battle. At least you can say you did all you could.

    Stand Up For What You Belive In

    It doesn't matter what you believe in as long as you believe in it.  Just stand up for whatever you feel is right.  Except the racial kind of beliefs. Those you should learn to deal with some other way, teach yourself to get over it.

    How You Feel And Think Matters.

    Revolutions are about fighting for what you believe in regardless of how right or wrong other people think it is. What you feel and what you think matters.
