Day 09 – Your beliefs

I have a post similar to what this one will be. But, I'm going to go with it- and hopefully kick it up a notch.

It is my belief that we all have our own opinions and beliefs, with that being said- we shouldn't attack each other for our thoughts.

I believe marriage is more than just a piece of paper. I think my ring is more than just a piece of frivolous jewelry. Both are sentiments to me. Both are proof of my promise to my husband, to my marriage. Yeah, sure- anyone can get married, but not just anyone can keep their promise. Sure, a girlfriend can love her boyfriend just as much as a wife can love her husband. But, in my opinion, a girlfriend is the trials to what can turn into a great marriage. A fiance is the next step- saying "I want to spend my life with you", "I'm ready to make that lifelong commitment". Marriage is forever- Well, it should be, it's supposed to be.

I believe in God, but I'm not the best Christian. Yes- I do question a lot of things. I'm a questioner. I was raised with Christian Values, and although I stumble a lot with my faith, my beliefs that were instilled in me growing up stand strong.

I believe that homosexuality is wrong. Men and women are like puzzle pieces- they fit together the way they should. Homosexuality, to me, is forcing two pieces together that aren't supposed to be a match.
With this subject, I also believe that the Military "Don't ask, Don't tell" policy should stay. I believe this for several reasons, but am not going to explain them here. Search a few blogs back to find my post on DADT. I Do not believe people are born gay, I do think it's a choice. You don't have to agree with me- that's your belief, this one is mine.

I believe in ghosts/ spirits. Too many crazy things have happened to me and my family for there not to be.

It is my belief that the death penalty is not used nearly enough... or even better- instead of the death penalty, we should torture those who without a doubt have committed murder, rape.. etc. Death is an easy way out, but I don't think that locking them up with cable TV, recreation time, better food than the military gets.. etc. is punishment. It's a vacation for some. Not to mention they get free health-care, dental and education while there.

I believe the health-care reform is a load of crap. Refer to post from many months ago.

I believe this whole "Pull out of Iraq" is an empty lie. Yea sure, it's being said that it's no longer a "combat zone".. so that means we're "pulling out". Ha. Yeah right. Lets just label it a "Training Zone" and make everyone think Obama fulfilled his promise. People are still deploying to Iraq, and doing the same darn thing they do in a "Combat Zone".... guess this is 'live' training.

I believe that people who drink and drive should have harsher punishment. Especially celebrities- sheesh, some role models. Know too many people who have lost their lives, or have taken someone else's because of this selfish act.

I believe that I should have been born in the 1940's.. Pretty sure I belong there.

I believe you make your own Happiness- Too many people blame someone else, and even more-so.. I see people blaming the Military. Pure stupidity in my opinion.

I believe in the Right to Bar Arms- Don't try to take away mine and my families guns.

I do not believe hunting is immoral. I once saw an picture of an advertisement. The ad said "Hunters should be ashamed of themselves, shooting an animal is so inhumane. Why not go to the store and buy meat the humane way?!" hmm.. ok, I think I prefer the taste of a happy, free, non hormone induced animal that was killed in a slaughter house. I have been hunting myself. I have shot, gutted, cooked and ate a deer, and squirrel. I grew up eating meat that was brought in by my family- and not from a store. I have ate deer, cow, goat, pig, chicken, turkey, pigeon, quail, dove, squirrel, rabbit, frog legs, crawdads..  Lord knows what else. My parents rarely bought meat from a store. Just one deer would feed my family of 6 for months growing up.

I believe in Freedom. So many take that for granted.

I believe that Google has the answer to everything.

I believe abortion is wrong, except in cases of Rape and situations where it could/ would kill the mother & child. I think being in the perspective of someone who has had multiple miscarriages, that child could have been given to someone more deserving.

I believe that Sunday's Titans game against the Steelers was complete crap. Titans straight up gave it away.

I believe I'm done with this post.


  1. Well done. I think I agree with just about every thing up there.

  2. :) Thanks for sharing!

    We have a few different believes but that doesn't make me any less curious about the rest of your 30 days of me posts!

    ALSO, I do believe you owe me some ghostie stories!! :) I am STILL waiting! Hehehe.

  3. Great post. We can have different beliefs and still be respectful of one another. People who lose sight of that become clouded by their own judgments.
