Question Do You Feel Trapped In A Teen Thought Police State?

Is it just me, or does anyone else feel like they're living in a thought police state???

Article 1

Teen Friends shall make no fuss concerning my reiligious beliefs, or telling me what should or should not be said or believed; or infringing on my freedom, or on my right to freely exspress myself on my own web logs; or the right of the teens to peacefuly form friendships, and the right to give the Teen Friends a peace of their minds.

(For those of you who don't get whole picture, a few friends of mine debate with me a lot and shove their socialist ideas down my throat and throw my thoughts out the window and tell me what's wrong with my thinking. I live in a thought police state. You?)

And also, the debates are about how it's sooooooooooo awful to think stereotyping exists. It does, I swear!



Article 1 (The Real One) lol!

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishing of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom, or of the press; or the right of the people to peacefuly assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Of course stereotyping exists. I have a tendency to stereotype people. It's human nature. Your friends, I'm supposing, are judging you for being a traditional Christian, which I have nothing wrong with. I have something wrong with people who claim to be one thing, and then act a different way, but that doesn't mean because some Christians do that, that you're automatically one of them. As far as your friends, I'm willing to bet you're kind of like their whipping boy, because they have bigger issues with the church, and find you to be their best forum of communicae with the church. Obviously, they're not going to go up to adults, and criticize the church. They would either be too afraid to, or realize they couldn't win an argument with a person so set in their ways, so they criticize you instead. I'm not saying they're bad people. I'm just saying I think it's human nature, especially for young people, to become outlandish and even offensive, when discussing something they have a problem with. If I were you, I would tell your friends to stop throwing you into a group, and saying you must be wrong, because these guys are wrong. You might share the same beliefs as other Christians, but you are an individual, and are your own person.

i really have to do something about these people doing that to me. but in order to concur them, i have to concur myself and once thats done, theyve been concured. i think buhhda said that
and you are exactly right about the whipping boy thing. someone i know talks to me about this and they say i am a scape goat. i know exactly why they said this. its true. but anyways, you put that perfectly. thats exactly what needs to be said to them.

What if I were schizophrenic? Huh? What would you do then? Shun me?


And of course it's human nature. If Ensemble is too dense to realize that stereotypes are human nature, there are other issues at hand.

Also (i'm going to get killed for saying this) but Christianity pretty much hinders your intelligence, because your too distracted worrying about your Christian morals to look at the big picture. In addition to spending endless hours memorizing/analyzing an irrelevant text to do something useful and productive. The Bible is a nice fictional story. That's it.

dude, UTG entire spiel was about how stereotyping was human nature, and you were all like "it's so beautiful." I honestly didn't bother to read that giant thing you wrote, because there was a 90% chance it would be teenage angsty crap (which is ok in small doses). Plus my I saw "lol!" and "sooooooooooo" which further confirmed my beliefs of female, teenage stupidity.
