I read the saddest thing yesterday - a team member was leaving the team because someone had posted a scripture or religious-oriented blog, huddle, etc. How sad when someone's intolerance leads him/her to cut off his/her own nose to spite his/her face. It seems that despite a couple of wars that have cost us billions of dollars, some people just can't get the message that religious intolerance is the root of the world's woes, not money, not sex, not scandals although a little religion could help all those things, too!
I don't post scriptures because I don't think God requires it of me but if I feel a desire to do so, why should that be any different than someone else's posting swear words? The swear words only show an empty brain, the intolerance an empty heart.
That said, my dears, if your facebook posts routinely contain swear words, I'm going to hide them because I don't want my friends to think I talk that way or think that way. There's freedom of speech and there's freedom from speech, if you get my drift.
Enjoy your Sunday!
