Maintaining a Stand for Tolerance

Posted on March 7, 2014 at 2:14 PM
So what's it all about - Alfie???  Lots of positive social justice in the news-yet intolerance is still alive, well and running a muck!!!  

Thanks readers for all the thoughtful comments you have posted about this continuing blog.  You are very kind and I do appreciate you checking me out.

The latest rant if you will is about Arizona law makers who took it upon themselves to decide businesses could actually say in 2014 - customers will not be served by us because our values/religion disagree with "who you love", "who the almighty made you to be" and even though you bring with you a healthy economic base - we in essence do not want your business or your presence in our public space to serve!!! Dayum!  How bold and elitist is that???  I bet some of those same places will allow customers to enter with their pets - but I as a paying respectable customer because of what I do in my private life you will refuse to serve me???  Is there a survey on the menu that I would need to answer first before being served?  Or do I wear a Scarlet F on my chest so that you can see me coming!!!

What is really up with people these days?  A practice of tolerance and cultural sensitivity has taken a back seat by some (certainly not all) that then demands attention to the fact they would even make the consideration?  

Sports though has taken a new attitude for tolerance - to this I say good for public recognition.  As one may realize though, it is just as much about economics and public opinion as it is about being tolerant and understanding within the industry.  Yet, such an uproar about the Olympics and how appalled we were about a foreign leader not wanting a "gay" presence to politically upset the games.  The same sort of questions might be asked on how accepting we shall be within our country regarding the "Gay Games" being held in the Cleveland, OH this summer.    How will we show our support there?  They too may be experiencing some fundamental push back from the "good ole" fundamentalists!!!   To provide positive support, one certainly does not have to venture across the water or several continents to demonstrate one's support - lesson learned in Arizona -  Like they say if you do it there, you can do it anywhere.   

Moving us forward

There are many intersected things in life where we are supposed to have the tolerance like you are teaching. Still it is all about the mind of the person that has been going through the situation.

I'm not a law student or firm associates, but still know what are civil litigations and other similar concerns about the lawsuits. Today, there a lot of people that are willing to abuse others just to achieve his personal desires or goals. That is why it is important for an individual to know its legal and human rights. Our courts handle a wide variety of cases involving legal issues. They are the ones who are responsible for helping an individual that is seeking for legal remedy in his situation or case.

Although I was not really able to fully understand everything that you have said, I must say that some of your points are indeed true. I believe that showing respect should really become a must in order for us to live in a world that is so much better than before. I know that this will be really hard for other people but let us always remember how we wanted to be treated. Anyway, I do really love how brave you are for voicing out your thoughts and opinions regarding the matter. I will surely support you from this day forward.

Grapefruit juice is healthful, however, grapefruit consists of greater fiber, less sugar and fewer energy per serving than grapefruit.
