Freedom of Expression

I have a hard time talking, whilst someone else is giving a presentation/ teaching.
I would rather not be a distraction. (I picked that up in primary school.)
In my world, that is discipline.

Care to share an example, in your opinion, of the abuse of freedom of expression?

Freedom Of Expression definition
Right to express one's ideas and opinions freely through speech, writing, and other forms of communication but without deliberately causing harm to others' character and/or reputation by false or misleading statements. Freedom of press is part of freedom of expression.

Bumper Stickers

I find myself rubber-necking to read bumper stickers very often. Yet, as much as I love reading them, I don't have a bumper sticker on my car. I have one that I bought over a decade ago and its still sitting there unused.
It's one of the "Big Dogs" items. It has a bunch of dogs running in line and it says;
"Unless you are the lead dog, the scenery never changes"

Another bumper sticker I love is "My Karma ran over your Dogma"

Do you have any favorite bumper stickers? Any that often get a reaction out of you?

Emotions & Reactions

Once again, news outlets in GH are having a field-day with homosexuals. Super annoying because I rarely hear any constructive discussions.

No one deserves to be denied their human rights.
How do you deny someone their human rights? One way is by chastising them and angrily backing them into a corner. That should NOT be done to anyone. Not because of their color, language, country of origin, and certainly not because of their lifestyle which involves consenting adults.
That is who they are.
Adults. Just like you.
Consenting adults in relationships with each other. Just like you.

You may abhor what they do, but don't hate the human being.
Discriminating against them causes them emotional harm and puts them at risk physically also.

Note to Christians.
Christ said to love each other as he has loved you.

Karva Chauth

A new friend (co-worker), told me about Karva Chauth.

A few years ago when she decided to fast for her husband,

he was totally against it. He said it was not necessary.

She insisted and went ahead with it.

He appreciated the gesture.

She still fasts for him once a year.

Can't wait for some woman to fast for me! I hope that's the day we have fried yam & grilled salmon for breakfast, lunch & dinner. More for me!

On a serious note, Karva Chauth seems to help strenghten the bond between married people. Key word here is "seems".

I have a hard time allowing people to do things for me, I'll say she is crazy if a woman wants to fast for me.

What do you think of Karva Chauth? Would you fast for your husband to show you love/adore him and you want him to live a long & healthy life for you and the family? Would you be OK with your wife fasting for you?
