Hypocrisy

I love people's "flaws" their differences that help the world spin round. In fact I don't look at flaws as a weakness or bad thing, instead something that everyone has and truly everyone needs. And flaws can only be measured in your head because after all what is a flaw to me may not be to you.

The definition of hypocrisy is the act of being less critical of oneself than of others. Now this trait I have a huge issue with. But of course isn't judgment so easy? After all it's safe, it's like poking at a wild animal behind bars, they can't make it out so you feel safe but if things were different and you were just standing in a field the amount of respect you would show that animal would incomprehensible.

I say at least once a day "who am I to throw stones" because I truly know I live in a glass house. The choices I have made (good and bad) have made me the person I am today, and I love me. I wouldn't want to live in a concrete or wood house, after all I'm claustrophobic.

My latest rant comes from Miss California whether or not I believe in same sex marriage or not has nothing to do with the fact that she stood behind her comment that it should be banned because she is a good Christian and it is wrong in the eyes of God. This just days before she was exposed in nearly nude photos on the internet. The definition of prostitution is to sell one's body for money. I think in this story God gets to be the proverbial fence, it's safe to poke at others while standing behind something to guard you.

Don't get me wrong I love people who make bold comments, I define a leader as someone who will stand up and make a decision. And a great leader is someone who accepts the consequences of that decision. I just want to see one time someone stand up and make a comment solely based on something like their religious values and not read the headline the next morning that shows how hypocritical they are.

My goal for today...stand in open fields.
