Everyone has opinions, and everyone has a right to them. Everyone also has a right to share their opinion. I've even dared to share mine on occasion.
But when did it become okay to completely slam someone over a difference of opinion? Why is it okay to belittle or insult someone just because they don't think the same way? What good is it doing? How is it improving anything? And do you really think you're going to change someone's mind or even get them to consider a different perspective if you're being sarcastic or downright mean?
And Christians, goodness. We should really, REALLY, do a better job of respecting one another. REALLY. It's embarrassing to see brothers and sisters in Christ being so awful to one another.
The bottom line is that there are no easy answers to anything going on in our world today. And, honestly, our opinions aren't going to solve anything, but our actions sure could.
"So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets." ~ Matthew 7:12
“If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As a man changes his own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards him. ... We need not wait to see what others do.” ~ Gandhi
