Because.......

Because I chose to be true to myself and not follow the dictates of men....

Because I chose to not be a hypocrite....

Because I chose to be happy instead of following rules laid out by men designed to keep me unhappy and feeling worthless....

Because I chose to think for myself instead of letting others tell me what to think....

Because I chose to not blindly accept something only because it's what I've been taught since birth....

Because I chose to live a life full of love instead of judgemental self-righteousness....

Because I chose to not associate myself with an organization that protects even one sexual predator....

Because I chose to live my life to the fullest NOW instead of waiting for that magical day when God is going to solve all the worlds problems....

Because of MY choices (not their rules, oh no! They don't have rules.)....

I have been un-invited to my brother's wedding.

(sounds like bullshit to me, how about you?)

un-invited? so were you actually invited at all?

yep, got an email and everything. It wasn't until other people (not related) started a pissing match over who could be more righteous that my brother decided I couldn't be there.

They put more stock in the "appearance" of righteousness than actual righteousness itself.

Thank god, a woman in control of her own destiny!!!

So you miss a wedding, but you gain your valued opinion about what is important "IN YOUR LIFE"!

Thank god for a woman who stands up for her own way of thinking & living!

AMEN SISTER!!!
Love ya, Joyce
