Here’s the thing.



You don’t get a say.



That’s it. The heart and soul of the matter, the truth, the real deal.



YOU DO NOT GET A SAY.



It doesn’t matter if we are rich. If we are poor. If we are flawed. If we are hypocritical. If we change. If we don’t change. If our hair is long, or it is short, or we are fat, or we are divorced, or if we have tattoos, or if we love Jesus.



YOU DO NOT GET A SAY.



Yes, we put our lives online. Yes, we share stuff other folks don’t say out loud. It doesn’t matter.



YOU DO NOT GET A SAY.



We will delete your comments. We will ban your IP address. We will not tolerate your abuse.



You will say we don’t tolerate disagreement.



YOU ARE NOT DISAGREEING. (Although you are being disagreeable.)



This is disagreement: “I do not agree with your idea, and here’s why.”



This is what you say: “YOU SUCK, and here’s why.”



That is not disagreement. That is an insult.



We will not tolerate insults.



Our blogs are our homes. Our churches. Our hearts.



Yes, we host an open house. We invite everyone in. We do. We know this. We do this for a million reasons, some of them good, some of them bad, and many of them rooted in good old fashioned human narcissism.



We will not apologize.



But we still are not required to accept when someone walks in and craps on our carpet. If we allow you to do that with your inflammatory and judgmental comments, with your derision, with your need to poke holes in our hearts, we do not then have a house full of smart civil discussion and disagreement.



We have a house FULL OF CRAP.



It is not okay. We will not tolerate it.



YOU DO NOT GET A SAY.



Not about our children, our bodies, our families, our work, how we live, or the decisions we make.



YOU DO NOT GET A SAY.



Our homes. Our churches. Our blogs. Our lives.
