Our ideologies come with responsibility. In my neighborhood, to be against abortion means we have to figure out what to do when a fourteen-year-old girl gets pregnant. If we are really pro-life, we had better have some foster kids and teen moms living with us to prove it. I don’t want to just be an anti-abortion or anti-death person. I want to be pro-life. For far too long, we Christians have been known more by what we are against than by what we are for.
The above is from this blog, “What it means to be pro-life” by Shaine Claiborne.
My issue with belief is often that its adherents are so hellbent on pointing out how everyone is destroying their rights and freedoms that they lose sight of their goals and impose them on everyone.
Belief’s foundation is on “freewill”, yet the first group to remove freewill from others, is the group explaining that we have something called freewill.
We make up the words and the rules.
The freedoms that believers enjoy aren’t being removed. Believers must learn to share freedoms. Otherwise, freedom is just dumb.
And for that, I criticize.
