Sorry.. this thread caught my eye....

you could try learning to apperciate those that are different.. and having different value systems.. different view points.. If we all thought the same.. this would would be very boring.. if we all decided to say.. "that's cool.. as long as your NOT hurting me.. or others..." We could have much more fun....

Those that are offensive.. as in using language in front of your kids.. well.. after a..."Hey.. chill with that in front of my kids please..".. if they keep going... then or later.. then you have a decision to make...

I have and will call out someone in public.. friend or stanger for using such language.. but most people I hang out with, tend to have similar thoughts on the subject...

I don't really think that this is a worlld full of Stupidity.. but rather a world full of intolerance..

I often find myself telling people "I'm hanging up before I say something ugly." or asking for the phone number of someone's manager. I can't remember the number of times I've told someone to stop acting stupid in front of my kids even though we are in public places. I wish I didn't get so bothered by the people who my exposed to last a few minutes but it is like I just cannot sit back and take crap from people. There are a number of instances where Jesus was matter of fact with people. How do you know when you are going from standing up for yourself and the atmosphere you want to be exposed to, to being a B?

(Please note I know calling ugly names even in a joking manner is not Christ-like.)
