I believe in free speech. But I don't believe in hurtful words or hateful hearts.
I believe in the right to bear arms. But I don't like that people carry guns on their hips in the same supermarket I take my children shopping in.
I believe we love who we love and nobody else and their opinions should matter.
I believe Yes Ma'am and No Sir will always be "in style".
I believe that men and women are born gay. I believe they are genetically made that way. I believe I have a gay son, and I believe it does not matter now and it never has.
I believe you should be able to marry whoever you want to marry, in any state of the United States of America.
I believe that you should be able to have as many children as you want to have, if you can pay for them. I believe in helping people, but not when they do not help themselves.
I believe recipients of welfare should be drug tested every three months. I believe if they fail, the welfare should stop. If there are children involved, they should be placed within the family. If there is none, foster care. Foster care or a drug addict, which is better?
I believe in capital punishment and the death penalty. If you kill someone I love, I do not want you to ever breathe again. Much less feed and clothe you.
I believe abortion is a very personal choice. I could not do it. But I will not tell another woman, who has been brutally raped, that she must carry and give birth to, the child that came from a monster.
I believe that if you are in my house and you do not belong there, that you are there to do no good. And I know I could kill you to protect my family. I know that I would.
I believe children or adults arrested for bullying should serve jail time.
I believe if you can beat or hurt an animal, you have the ability to do the same to a human being. I believe you are missing part of your humanity chip.
I believe if this country handled things with the "eye for an eye" formula, there would be less thefts and less deaths. Don't you think, if you knew stealing would cause a hand to be removed, you would think a little bit harder? And if a man rapes or abuses/molests children, he is castrated? Don't you think that would be a bigger deterrent than drugs to "stop the want"? Remove it..I promise you, the want is instantly over.
I believe if you live as right as you know how, you will go to heaven. Whether or not the back of your behind ever sits in a church pew or not.
I believe there are plenty of people who sit in church every time the doors are open, but will be standing behind me, at the gates of heaven.
I believe, that if I love you, and I care about you, I will do anything in this world to help you. Even if I think you are wrong.
I don't believe that you can cheat on your spouse every week, go to mass, and say ten Hail Mary's and be forgiven.
I believe the good Lord and I have a lot to talk about. And I believe that he loves me still.
I believe you reap what you sow, and I believe what goes around comes around.
I believe if you push me, I will push back. If you crowd me, I will run. If you mistreat me, you will no longer know me.
I believe in signs, good and bad. And if He is ignored, He will show you.
I believe with all my heart, my husband made me a better person.
I believe with all my heart, my sons made my husband a better man.
I believe you should apologize with the same energy you caused the hurt.
I believe sometimes you have to make the choice to be the bigger person.
I believe sometimes, you can do no more, and you must make the decision to walk away.
And I believe that I will still feel the same way about anyone who does or does not choose to read this. I am fine with being different. I am fine with standing alone. As long as I know in my own mind and heart, that I truly believe in what I am saying, I am fine if I am left standing alone. For no one, true to their own heart, is ever really alone.
