What’s Right Isn’t Always Popular and What’s Popular Isn’t Always Right

I nearly cried this morning when I read what someone posted as a reply to my entry on Choose Life the other day. No, it wasn’t posted here; it was posted to my Facebook page where I told everyone if they felt like more controversy to read my latest entry. Basically, the individual told me I was spot on when I talked about my views on abortion, but disagreed with me when it came to the death penalty.

Now wait a minute! I never even said what those views are…yet. What’s more the individual also is criticizing whom I am planning to vote for in November for president. For the record, I welcome open debates and disagreements, but please don’t ever make it sound like I cannot think for myself.

I have learned what’s right isn’t always what’s popular and definitely what’s popular isn’t always right. That also goes almost without saying that I have often stood by what isn’t popular and what is right. I have been insulted, ridiculed, and mocked for much of what I stand for and who I believe in.

I have yet to find many people who share my beliefs in their entirety, but I do find some people who share SOME of my beliefs and am grateful to have found those few.

If you are not afraid to stand up for your beliefs, you can gain so much more maybe even a few friends (or admirers if you’re extremely lucky).

God bless!

About Christy

I enjoy: my family, my faith life, photography, drawing; writing, working on cars, basketball, football, and baseball. These are just a few of the many things I like...you'll just have to read my blog to know me better to know more of them. Other things you may not catch on that I enjoy are: cats, angels, ballroom dancing, Christian music, camping (being one with nature and all of God's creations), traveling, cherry and apple blossoms, and the colors blue (in all shades), white, black, dark purple, and SOME shades of pink. (Rainbows are cool, too. And I'm NOT a lesbian! Although, I'm friends with some gays and lesbians as well as a few transgenders.) I am Roman Catholic. I graduated from Johnson County Community College, where I majored in Animation in hopes of fulfilling my dreams of being a computer generated animation movie maker. I also have a degree in Corporate Communication from Avila University. I'm currently employed at Nestle Toll House/Haagen-Dazs (at Oak Park Mall in Overland Park), I own my own business -- C & S Productions, L.L.C. (check it out at http://www.csproductionsllc.com), and am single. My favorite time of year is Winter and the Christmas season! It's just so...well, I can't put it into words. ^_^ Lastly, I am 35 years young!
