There is something going through our world right now. It makes it so I can hardly recognize what earth has become. There’s something that’s crushing the morales of those who follow Christ. You might have heard of it. You might have not. Let’s just say that identities aren’t identities. Not anymore. Now…I don’t even know what they are.
There’s a show on Netflix right now that contributes to this whole thing. It’s called Anne with an E. There’s been a lot of controversies about this show…some love it, some hate it. To be honest, I’m not the one of the former. Because…there are just some things that I can’t appreciate.
First of all, let’s talk about the “mouse” episode. I stopped watching the show after that episode, though I read a few articles on the rest of it as well..including the third season. The “mouse” episode. I’m sorry, but why would a PG-Rated show have that kind of content? It might go over younger kids’ heads, but adults? Or people in between the two ages? I just don’t get it.
Then, of course, there’s the third season. I don’t know if those things occur in the second season too but…if so, then that is just not a show that I can respect. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, there’s an article about it here. This brings me to another point in my post.
Now, listen, I don’t believe that those part of that community are necessarily bad. I believe that what they believe is bad. Why do I say that? Well, I’m a Christian and I have certain beliefs that tell me that that is a sin. God created us, Man and Woman. Not anything else.
I know that you’re probably going to say, “Well, you should be more open-minded!” Maybe, so should you. Because, as a Christian, I am entitled to my beliefs. I can totally believe that the things represented in Season 3 are wrong, and I expect those opinions to be supported since, after all, “we’re supposed to be a loving and diverse community, right?”
You might also say that we Christians do not accept the ideas that are in Season 3. Well, that’s right. We don’t. Because we have beliefs that keep us from these things. Respect our beliefs, we can respect yours. Though…maybe that’s not true either.
Because, as hard as I try, I cannot respect those beliefs. I will respect you as people, but I will not be able to support your ideas because I have a God who tells me that that is wrong and I believe in His word, not yours.
I’m not the bravest person in the world. Matter of fact, I’m pretty shy. But there is something taking over the world that Our Creator has designed today, and we need to fight back against it. Even as a shy person, I can’t just let this take over without saying something. I’m just one girl, one voice. But, at least that’s better than none.
There is an army that is willing to fight back against all the other armies that are taking over the world. I want to be part of it. I didn’t before, but now I do and I won’t be scared anymore. Will you?
I was scared to fight before because I was scared of what people would think. I still am kind of scared, but now, I don’t really care anymore. Because I won’t stay silent. And neither should you.
