The Creator in his obvious genius, has given us two ears and one tongue. Men boast of free speech as if they had a weapon of two tongues, while making the ears of others bleed.
The cry for free speech from certain circles, is simply a plea for tolerance of the mindless. You want to express your free speech? Go ahead, and I’ll decide if I want those seeds of words in my garden, lest they grow to weeds or poison ivy that spreads.
Freedom of speech is knowing because one can say something, does not necessarily mean he should. As if a man would dare to use a funeral to promote his agenda than cry ‘free speech’ when he is escorted away from the grieving, then to accuse the bereaved of intolerance.
Free speech does not call attention to the endless and vain repetition of the absurd.
People demand freedom of speech to make up for the freedom of thought which they avoid -Soren Aabye Kierkegaard (1813-1855)
Freedom of speech is a beautiful thing, even in disagreement, but even a poor house guest can be a pest, to which a man said of a visiting friend: ‘glad to see him; glad to see him go.’
Freedom of speech carries manners, or at least it should, but how many times do we see the abuse, ahem Brian Williams of late, Bill Maher, Howard Stern, Al Sharpton, George Steppinoverous, not even to mention the countless bloggers who use words to steal, kill, and destroy the goodness of others.
Did you ever notice that some speech has the character of a carcase, put forth as bait for vultures?
Freedom of speech is sometimes best displayed as silence.
Who would dine at a table of words that are toxic or hazardous to your health? Driving the Creator out from the heart is pretty much not too healthy.
Is it any surprise that Christ is known as the Word of God? The Logos, the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last; from whom, to whom, and through whom, consists all things.
No words, no speech without the Alphabet, and from that well, from that source, springs all that is, and gives freedom of speech its true worth.
God used His freedom of speech and called this place ‘earth.’ What do you call it?
God used His freedom of speech and called the dots above ‘stars.’ What do you call them?
God used His freedom of speech and called us ‘man and woman.’ What do you call us?
God called the wet stuff ‘water’ and the rest of it ‘seas.’ What do you call them?
Every time we open our mouths, we verify the Creator in all his ways. We enjoy freedom of speech; we may as well drop the pride and say ‘thanks’ for this thing called a mouth, and for the heart that is the engine that propels the words.
Freedom of speech? Thank God.
