Cause your way or your beliefs aren't the only ones

Sorry need to make a little rant. Whether its parenting, political, religious, or whatever why can’t some people get your way ain’t the only way. Maybe you go to church on Sunday but not everyone days. My Sabbath is Saturday so why is it unfair to hold a class at the Y on a Sunday but not a Saturday in a town by the way that historically been Jewish. 20-30 years a LOT of business here were closed Saturdays and open Sundays. Sorry someone pissed me off at the Y last night then I just offended a caller because I didn’t tell her to have a blessed day. My people don’t do that. No I didn’t have a nice Easter either. And don’t get me started on the political crap on my FB feed. Wake me up on November 9th.

So I take it your Jewish? I'm not sure what's wrong with people because if you are the Christian you say you are, you don't hate or dog anyone. Christian faith is about Love. I think a lot of them forget that and try to force everyone into their "right" way of life.

I am christian but actually enjoy discussion with others and their faith. I have Muslim friends and I just met Someone that was telling me about Hinduism. I find it fascinating even though our beliefs are different.

Truthfully I think the world has just gone nuts and hate has become the common language. It's really sad.

This particular woman was like you can't hold classes on Sunday that's the day people go to church. The instructor was very diplomatic. You go on Sunday but some of us go to our places on Saturday. She gave her the how dare you not be like me look.

I don't get it. I guess growing different than most I'm more sympathetic to other religions. Where we live is very diverse. I will say at work the religious time calls come from south or west not northeast. My kids are having a more diverse up bringing than me and I think it's great. There is more than one of doing things and great that they are experiencing that. I will say the most accepting to other beliefs in my experience are those on the minority. I have more two way conversations ably religion with my Muslim friends than Catholic ones. My Muslim friends don't asking in an expository tone how can I not believe in Jesus. Christian seems to one to convert the non believers and I just chuckle when either or Christian or Catholic say I will go to hell for not believing. See Jews don't believe in hell.

Oh and let me say it's not all and yes there are judgmental ones on all sides, I converted because my mom is Catholic and my dad is Jewish but I would never be welcome in most old school orthodox or conservative temples. Just two things this week rubbing wrong in this topic plus some other non religious stuff or even political stuff that is brining religion in.

This reminds me of when I used to work at PetSmart. We had one guy who wouldn't work Wednesday nights or any time on Sundays because he had to go to church. We both worked as small animal specialists and I ended up being the only one working that section on Wednesday nights. And I had to always work the entire weekend. I'm not a Christian---I'm Pagan---but having a part of the weekend off would've been nice once in awhile. And being the only one in my section on Wednesday nights meant that I had to be there even when I was sick.

I hate this trend of only listening to things that support my belief system.  Yahoo, FB, news sites, all cater to this idea you should only listen to things that support your bias.  If you don't hear other ideas then how can you grow and learn?

Unfortunately, November 9 won't be all that magical.  Depending on who wins, the crazy people could be in charge.  Again, that depends on your POV. 

And then, there are just the snowflakes that are offended at everything.

Actually she wouldn't have been like me. I believe that God gave us a day of rest but he didn't specify which day it had to be. My 7th day maybe different that the next persons. The important thing is to make sure you take one day a week for rest and spiritual growth. Not everyone sees it that way however.

OH I believe we are screwed either way. Really just depends who we get screwed. As one person once said to me on the phone it's like we blanked her in the a$$ without Vaseline. Maybe the person uses ky, or prefers toys either way we are screwed Imo. You can have yours but don't shove it down my throat. At least on 11/9 one side will be silenced

I had a sheik friend tell me there are many paths to the same God.

Sorry, sounds frustrating.

The political mess has made me pretty sad this year. I try not to read or think about it too much.

You will never please everyone.... and it rarely if ever has anything to do with religion.... people bitch, because they can...
