People Shouldn’t Use 9/11 as a Scapegoat for their own Convictions

Have you ever bore witness to someone attempting to perpetuate their own agenda by interjecting misplaced commentary? Did you ever try to get your own point across about a current affair, or issue relevant to some immediate circumstance, only to be derailed by an audience member (or another party present in the conversation) who, wishing to gain footing with his own viewpoint on a separate issue, interrupts the flow of the discourse by relating the discussion to another issue, seemingly irrelevant to the issue at hand? Well, I have, and it’s one of my “pet peeves”!

I just heard a celebrity talking about the ongoing battles in the courts over the issue of Gay-Marriage. He went on to say, something to the effect of ‘You mean to tell me that you’re going to worry about gay marriage after we’ve got things like 9/11 to worry about!?’. Well, all I have to say about that is, if people start changing their moral values, and their beliefs and convictions because we’ve got “more important things to worry about”, then by-god, haven’t then the terrorists accomplished precisely what they set out to do?

Now, i’m not saying that i am against a person’s right to live their lives which ever they want, and i’m certainly not against the peoples’ rights to take their issues to court, but i am against someone who tries to let one issue, in some twisted way, ride on the coat-tails of another– a completely separate and irrelevant issue– just because there are too many things to worry about.

anyway, i just wanted to post something so i could get these new categories to show up. ;)
