I am not simply afraid to speak my mind. On the contrary I want to speak my mind and that is exactly the reason I do not want to come out and say which side of the argument I'm on. If I do this my voice will be ignored because people don't listen after yes or no. When someone hears a simple answer they assume your opinion is just that, simple; black or white, liberal or conservative. My opinion is not simple; it's difficult because it's a difficult subject that can't just be fought against with a few controversial Bible verses. I try not to ask others for simple answers because I want to avoid making labels myself. I try not to expect yes or no because people’s thoughts don’t usually fit in yes or no, for or against, pro or anti, etc.
I don’t blog to give simple answers and neither should you. If you blog let this be a place where you hear yourself out. Don’t allow yourself to remain unchallenged. Why blog at all if everything you say can fit into one word? Speak your whole mind and let others do the same. This is a space where you don’t have to fit into the labels. Take advantage of that space.
