will all find tolerance?


i am a believer

i am an American

i am white-skinned

i am a college graduate

i am married, to one man

i work at home on the farm

i feed beef cattle to feed people

i am a home owner and land owner

i am conservative in my political views


are these statements provocative?
unacceptable, politically incorrect?
should i apologize to the world?
do we really believe in tolerance?
does diversity respect equally?



i want to listen and learn

i may disagree but that

does not mean i hate

yes, i am privileged

to love & be loved

to also bleed red

i thank God for

his blessings

every day;



The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance. (Psalm 16:6)

ten word tolerant

“Tolerance isn’t about not having beliefs. It’s about how your beliefs lead you to treat people who disagree with you. ”  ~ Timothy Keller 

sincerely yours

Senryu: a haiku on human foibles

extreme tolerance

has hijacked freedom of speech

living in Babel

Babel is biblical site where languages were confused…similar to “babble”.  Tolerance for every idea equally (whether true/false, right/wrong, good/evil)  will lead to confusion and chaos…are we living there?  I believe we must show tolerance to our fellow human beings but debate ideas/opinions exercising our freedom of speech.  What do YOU think?
