I find it semi-hilarious when I'm attacked because of my stance in a debate, in a kind of strange, bittersweet way that isn't really all that funny when you really think about it.
Count as of now:
Three times in the past week my faith has been called into question.
Two times in the past week, my love for America has been called into question.
Two of the first three was because of the Cordoba House (Park51). The other was because of a gay marriage debate concerning Elena Kagan's confirmation and Prop. 8. The past two were because of said Cordoba House.
Once it was from someone I've looked up to as near-family.
It's rather sad, actually, how people you know and love can call into question some of the things that shouldn't be questioned just because you disagree with them.
So, for future reference, to all those who may want to attack me on these two things:
Don't call into question my faith in my God. Please. Let me and God take care of that one. We have a pretty good handle on it.
Please don't attack my "love for America." America is a great nation. She has problems. Calling her out on those problems isn't "attacking America." That's constructive criticism that should be put into effect to make America better.
