I just want to say that some of those things you said up there show just how much you’re contantly growing and changing, even in the year that I’ve known you. I remember when the first thing you would tell me about someone was what they did for a living and I would ask you why you did that and you would say, “just because”. And now look at you!

I believe that a person is not his/her profession; being asked by someone “what do you do?” is simply an excuse to slap on a label.

I love that you said that. Amongst other things.

Also, I may believe in a right to choose but I do not at all condone late term abortions. Still, that man did not deserve to die for doing them. Not at all.

I believe about 99% of what you believe.
Shiny is a smart man, which doesn’t surprise me at all.

What an eloquent, heartfelt post. I read it twice.

Just like Sybil Law, I believe 99% of what you believe, and I think that’s pretty awesome.

Great list. And I agree that our beliefs do change and should change over the years. Static has a way of staying put and not moving forward. Dynamic is more in line with the human psyche.

Like the others, I agree with nearly everything you’ve said. I have always agreed with much of what you say and felt that you are a more eloquent (and smarter and hotter and maler) 😉 version of myself. I’d read your comments on a blog and usually found myself just saying “ditto”.

I have always thought that you are one of the most intelligent, reasoned people I’ve ever come across. You actually ponder the why of your feelings, and look at them clearly and objectively. (Example: you were raised Jewish because of circumstances at the time of your birth. Many people cannot look at their belief system so objectively that to see if one factor, like location, had been changed they may be a totally different person. Not only do you see and understand that, it doesn’t change your views because you are so deeply connected with the community and that is what organized faith is about.)

I’ve also been incredibly bothered over the last couple days by the “abortion doctor” thing because he was a man that was so much more than his profession… we all are. A person cannot be wrapped up in a neat tidy little label of one or two words. While I don’t go out of my way to read obituaries, when I see long ones I do enjoy reading them because you can see how much a person did besides “mother and homemaker” or “auto mechanic” or whatever job they did.

I could ramble on and on about each point, but there’s no point, so I’ll just say “me too”!

I love this list. I think I’ll do one of my own.

And, heh, you guys don’t eat shellfish? That’s just weird.

(I’m sorry, I had to say that b/c it was ironic-funny, I know you don’t eat shellfish, and I don’t think it’s weird that you don’t. Don’t kill me. Please.).

Beliefs shouldn’t be unchangeable. But they should be unshakeable. Seems you got it.

Thank you. That was one of the better things I’ve read in a long while.
