My son is a 14 year old freshman at Long Co High School.  He was given an assignment to write something he was very compassionate about.  Last night I asked him what he wrote on and he told me.  I asked could I read it.  Dad was so proud I had to call two preacher friends of mine last night and read it to them over the phone.  Here it is, written exactly as he wrote it...except for spell check corrections.

Still Offended, by Holden Reagan Riddle

Every single day I hear about how people are offended by what Christians say or do.  Well I'm getting sick and tired of hearing all that complaining!  There is a lot of crap us Christians have to deal with in the world, but I'm finally done putting up with it!

There has been an argument about taking the Ten Commandments out of the courtroom because people are offended by it.  I would be offended if I walked into court and I didn't see the Ten Commandments hanging up because our country was built off of God, and if God isn't in the justice system, then our country's in the wrong party!  Last 4th of July I went to New Orleans for vacation and I took great offense when I saw rainbow flags hung up on the streets.  I also saw psychics and fortune tellers in front of a church, and that is just disrespectful.

If it is within my rights and not against the law, then I will report everything that goes against what I believe, and do so according to the Bible.  Because I would be offended.

Great Job Mike! We need more parents like you raising children.

Thank's Jimmy and Sheran. He's a much better Christian than his Day is that's for sure. He may fail tomorrow and fall into some of the many traps that our youth face today, with all of the temptations of this world. But all that matters to me is that I know he has the desire to to what is right...he wants to be a good Christian. I am very proud, thanks again.

Thank you for the kind words Sebekm. I wish I could say all four of my kids attempted to take their religious walk as seriously as Holden has so far in his life. And I wish Dad walked a lot straighter also.

Great story, MLK. Thank Giod my mother brought me up in the church, I wish I walked a lot straighter too; however the acceptance of religious beliefs and actions were the foundation of my upbringing. God bless you and your family! You are a Great Father!

Thanks Funk very nice words. I wasn't raised in church, to speak of, nor was my wife. Fortunately for me she has always been pretty solid with her faith since I've known her..me I've struggled like a yo-yo. But you keep plodding on trying. It's always good to hear words of support from other Christians.
