Things I Hate About Facebook


Posts like the one above rank easily in The Top 5 Things I Can’t Stand About Facebook. 

Someone else’s extensive rant or need for affirmation and love, with a manipulative little clause tacked on at the end warning that if you don’t add it to your own page, you’re a coward. 

Come up with and compose your own thoughts and, if I agree, I will share them and credit you accordingly. Until then, don’t join the lemmings pushing you to publicize another’s exclamation point-laden, derivative guilt trip of a diatribe. 

That’s much braver. 

So, to practice what I preach? 

God belongs in our homes, our places of worship and in our right to freely practice and express religion. That right includes the choice to homeschool or send our kids to parochial schools. God has no place in a taxpayer-funded, government-subsidized public school system. As it happens, both the Supreme Court and the Constitution agree:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. (U.S. Const. amend. I)

This is my own opinion, and you’re more than welcome—encouraged, even—to come up with your own. If you have the guts!!!
