The Warrior Class: "Stop Pushing Me"

Six, over at The Warrior Class, has written a masterpiece in defense of his personal faith and Christian values, and the clash with modern societal mores and demands.

Excerpt:
... I'm beholden to my God not to be silent. That is my Faith. Stop pushing.

What I strongly object to is the idea that I must celebrate any lifestyle at odds with my religious beliefs. Why isn't it enough that we can live together in peace and harmony without my having to deny my profound and deeply personal relationship with my Creator and literally abandon Him? I won't do that no matter the cost. Leave me alone and I'll return the gesture. Defend my freedoms and I'll do the same for yours. But stop pushing me.
... I keep getting told that my faith makes me a hater and a phobic and a criminal moron. So be it. If that's what you believe then you are free to do so. You are free to insult me and hate me and preach against me and my faith. But understand that I, and a lot of others just like me, have more than a bit of the Old Testament in us and we absolutely will not lay down and die just because we're inconvenient to your view of the World as you wish it to be.

If you consider yourself a Christian, or even just a tolerant person, please take the time to read his words. It's important.

Thank you my friend. May the Lord bless you, indeed all of us. I fear we have yet to see depths....

The Bible makes it clear that things will get much worse, before the return of our Lord.

Thank you again for having the courage to stand up & speak out.
