Confessions of a tree among winds

Leaf

1,014 views

(okay, crediting this to Princess Grrr)

 

After a year of dodging every blog war by hiding...

 

I'm confessing something. In terms of most things, I'm... Well, acceptable to nearly everyone.

 

Before I start this off, I need to make something clear.

 

I'm a conservative Christian.

 

Don't think of industrial magnates or high and mighty evangelists. I'm a fifteen year old guy with his own internal demons, who struggles to cling to love and deal with depression.

 

My references to the Kaithesean Demon? That's who I'm terrified of becoming.

 

That said, I've managed to survive for years without annoying anyone politically. Because I believe that my beliefs are mine, yours are yours, and slamming mine in your face isn't going to do anyone any good.

 

I love you. I love each and every one of you. It doesn't matter. You may annoy me from time to time, but I don't want anything to happen to you. Anything. You may not believe me, but I do. Cruelty is not a part of me.

 

Princess, how to say this...

 

It doesn't matter what I believe, if I think you're in the right.

 

You're doing something incredibly, incredibly good. You're standing up for who you are, and what you believe.

 

You're far stronger than I am.

 

I salute you.

Thank you so much. This is exactly what I have wanted to say, but could never find the right words to say it. These are my feelings exactly.

 

I salute you too, for being even more strong than me.

I think that it's important to remember that no matter what people think of a group, rarely can they be so broadly generalized.

 

You have my applause.

Yeah this exactly. Really well-said, man.

 

(except unfortunately I did have poor judgement in the past and I did get involved in some of the debates--wish I would've been as smart as you, or said things as well as you've said them here)

I salute you, man. Such a great blog entry, so incredibly brave. Like Velox, I've made the mistake of being involved in such debates before, but I'm glad you've kept away from them.

This. Thisthisthisthisthisthisthis. I too am a conservative Christian, and far too few people of my religion realize this. If you disagree with someone's views, saying "Oh you don't believe this? Oh well too bad, I'm right and you're not and go away" will accomplish ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.

 

Good entry.

I think this Entry deserves to be acknowledged as pretty much the most intelligent, loving, and respectful way to go about this. There are many people who can look to you for a great example.

 

Thank you for being brave enough.

All I can say is that I wish there were more people like you in the world, and if this entry had been posted before BrickFair I would have given you a fist bump for this. Bravo.
