    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...

    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.

    When You Are Passionate About Your Core Values And Beliefs

    I am a firm believer in standing up for my beliefs! That said, I know that there is a time and place for everything. I wouldn't just jump up and shout at a funeral or a wedding or a crowded theatre. When someone says something that is unsettling to you or says something that...

    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.

    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.

    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...

    This Has Been A Hard Achievement For Me..

    You Just Have To

    Why wouldn't you? Sometimes, you really have no choice. I guess it's a matter of pride, but I can't fathom someone NOT standing up for what they believed in. From something as simple as how you dress to something as controversial as abortion laws, standing up for what you...
