I’m judging you…and I hope you’re judging me.

Don’t judge me! We hear it all the time. A lot of the time it is said in jest. Maybe you overfilled your plate or ate something unhealthy and you notice everyone staring in your direction.

Obviously not what this post is about. A lot of people have a view that says “Don’t Judge Me”. Don’t hold me accountable for my words or actions. Let me do what I want and say what I want without any consequences or negative opinions. Just let me be who I am. What right to you have to be my judge?

I regret to inform you that everyone has the right if not an obligation to judge. If you don’t think so, then you are either a fool or a liar.

Do you have friends? How did you choose them? Have you ever stopped being someone’s friend because the relationship became toxic? What about a spouse or significant other? Did you simply take up with the first person available? I hope not.

What does the Bible say about not judging. It basically says if you judge another person, you must be willing to be judged by an equal standard. I’m very okay with this. That is the safeguard, the check and balance.

Now if you are getting the impression that we should all go around verbally passing judgement on each other then you haven’t a clue about what I’m talking about. Judgement should, for the most part, be absolutely silent and discreet. It should be that part of you that says “this is a bad idea”.

Ever interview for a job? What do you think is happening? Are you not being judged and are you not at the same time sizing up the person sitting across from you?

Being judgemental has been given a bad rap over the years. Just like with profiling, we are afraid to admit that we see others for who they really are. We pretend that we have no opinions about how others act. Much of this is a result of political correctness. By judging others we fear being labeled homophobic, racist, sexist, intolerant, discriminatory. Well I’m here to say enough of that.

If you want to walk around with blinders on pretending that you don’t have any idea when others are acting without any common sense you certainly have that right. If you are afraid to be honest or to point out hypocrisy that’s fine. But you are only fooling yourself.

America has become a very strange place. People are afraid to speak the truth because of whom it may offend or to be perceived as judgemental. Like I said, you don’t need to go around pointing out everyone’s faults. But be honest with yourself and others too.

Pretending everything is okay and acceptable does a disservice to everyone.

We live in a fake society 

Anyone watching the news should have no argument with the title of this post. Our society has indeed been overrun with the fake. Although our President has been quick to point out the trend of fake news I submit that this fakeness permeates our entire culture. And by the way, in case there is any question of where I stand, Trump is correct, most news is not at all news but a distribution of leftist philosophy. 

What besides the news is fake? For one, gender identification. No longer satisfied with how they were born, there are some who have decided that not only are they a member of the opposite of their physical sex and gender, but they have come up with and ever growing list of other possibilities. These other genders are fake. They do not exist except as an artificial construct.

The new rule is, if the obvious is not adequate, add complications. Looking down past your waist should be a sufficient method of determining whether you are a boy or girl. But, no, this is too simple. Common sense is just too simple a tool for the deviant mind. And when I say deviant I am not referring only to sexuality.

A fake view of life also spills over into the realm of the unborn. Once upon a time if you made something alive become dead, you killed it. But this is way too simple, like the new fake descriptions of gender, we cannot call a baby, a baby. We cannot call someone who is alive, alive or someone who is dead, dead. The fake term here is abortion. Deviant thinkers have decided that the rules needed to be changed to remove the guilt associated with murder. How very convenient for them. At one time when a couple found out they were pregnant, they announced the expectation of a baby. Now, it isn’t really a baby, unless he or she is wanted. I predict that abortion, the fake name for murder, will eventually, sooner than later, start to be applied any time an unwanted or inconvenient life is taken away. Old people, the handicapped and babies, even those who make it out of the womb, will be murdered but it will be called abortion.

Fake rights are being created all the time. A gay couple can demand to be married. This is a fake right since two people of the same sex are not even a couple. Best friends, roommates, but not a couple. Same sex couples and same sex marriage are fake names for deviant behavior. 

From the same people who insist on the right to be a couple comes another fake right. The right to insist that every one else caters to their wants and desires. The “couple” who insisted that Christian bakers deny their own identity and rights in order to satisfy and help perpetuate the gay agenda would not have complied if the roles were reversed. 

Another fake right is the right not to be offended or have to allow others to speak their own mind. There is no such thing as a public safe space. Unless you wish to enter your own home and lock the door, there is no where else where you have the right to silence anyone who with whom you disagree or forbid their presence. 

This has brought rise to innumerable fake societal concepts. Social justice is another fake term that dares to violate my right to think or speak of ideas that are not politically correct. Of course political correctness is just another fake term for deviants to rule over traditionalists. 

I hope this post upsets you and triggers you in every way possible. Maybe then people will start using common sense again.
