Be Consistent

One of my pet peeves is people who are inconsistent in the positions they hold. (I know I’m guilty in some capacity so this is a reminder for me too) Typically this shows up in the statements people make about political and social issues. Don’t get me wrong, there are a lot of good causes out there worth fighting for and raising our voices about. But at least be consistent in your positions.

Don’t rail against sex trafficking and continue looking at porn. Don’t complain about the gap between rich and poor and then bemoan higher taxes. Don’t denounce the discriminatory treatment of one group of people while denying another group the right to practice their faith according to their conscience. You are free to take any position you like in this country. But please, be consistent.
