Stand up for what you believe in, even if it goes against the current status quo.

Just a Kiss

I don’t know if y’all are familiar with the little country band called Lady Antebellum, but they are producers of great music. This duet never ceases to amaze me.

And I especially like the last song that has been released called “Just a Kiss.”

Especially in this age of promiscuity (and where virginity is frowned upon), this song is a breath of fresh air. It’s lyrics promote waiting (“I don’t wanna mess this thing up/I don’t wanna push too far”) and moving through a relationship slowly. It’s a song about finding the one you truly love and knowing it will last.

Lady Antebellum puts out great songs, but this is by far my favorite from them. I hope you agree with me.

    NewStatusQuo,

    I appreciate the view you take. But what I don’t undestand is why people think they should go against nature. We are animals, after all. Each one of us may in fact be the unique creation of a God who loves and cares for us, but we are still animals. We have instincts, and some of the very strongest are sexual. Why is that a bad thing?

    • Sex is not a bad thing. It is a gift from God for one woman and one man after they have been wed in His name. What is bad is the fact that sex has been abused, used for nothing more than personal pleasure for a short period of time. It is more than that. It is about forming a relationship with the one person you have promised to spend your entire life with, through good and bad times. Waiting for have sex until marriage isn’t going against nature. It is about self-discipline and saying to yourself, “I want sex to mean more than just physical pleasure.”

        What if the only purpose of sex is reproduction? If that is indeed the only purpose, then you are going against nature by waiting, going against your animal instincts.

        I have no problem with people like you who believe the things you do. It’s nice, actually. But I see a lot of people who hold the same views as you passing judgement on others. I’m not saying you do that, but you must admit that many do.

        You have instincts. If you choose not to follow them, that is entirely up to you. But let others make their own chocies and don’t pretend to know something they don’t. We’re all in this together, after all.

        • Of course people pass judgement on other people. As sad and stupid as it is, it’s human nature. My blog is not about judging people. It’s about writing about my observations and inputting my opinions so that other college students can see that there is someone else out there who holds the same conservative views.
          And I’m not saying people can’t make their own decisions. And I’m definitely not pretending to know everything. I’m simply praising this song because it upholds nice, traditional conservative principles. I applaud Lady Antebellum for that.

            Yet you say homosexuality is, in your opinion, immoral. Couldn’t that be construed as a form of judgement passing?

          • Other people say that homosexuality is moral and perfectly acceptable. Could that be construed as a form of judgement passing on me?
            In this day and age, almost anything is acceptable. There are few rights and wrongs any more. If people are allowed to go around doing presentations on how I am being discriminatory because I don’t believe in same sex relations, it would only make sense that I should be allowed to share my opinions about why I think it is wrong, and be able to do so with the same amount of respect? However, while they are praised for standing up for homosexuality, I am degraded because I believe in something different. It’s a double standard. So couldn’t that be them passing judgement on me because I am standing strong to conservative principles? To what I believe is right and true?

    No. Not at all. Not unless they’re also saying that you’re sexual predilections are immoral.

    However, while they are praised for standing up for homosexuality, I am degraded because I believe in something different.

    You should apply what you’re saying to the Civil Rights battles of the 50s and 60s and see how much sense it makes. See if you think people like Jesse Helms and Strom Thurmond were merely standing true to their principles…….

    I’ll only say in closing that discrimination is something that, across the board, has been condemned by most people in every society everywhere. Homosexuals are merely out fighting the discrimination that is already on the books. They’re not attacking heterosexuals or conservatives, but those who discriminate against them.

    • I respect the fact that you think that, but I can tell you personally, as a conservative college student, on a liberal college campus, that that is not true.

        ‘Eh, that’s how young liberals are. Give them time and they’ll grow up.

        I went from a socialist to a liberal to a Blue Dog Democrat to an Independent to a Conservative and now back to liberal. And no matter the side I’m on, I’m always pro-life and rabid. 🙂

    I don’t know why it didn’t block quote your words…Arg…Sorry about that.
