This blog exists within the confines of a tolerant autocracy. Your constructive, opposing views and comments are welcome; provided, they do not attack me personally. While my views on an issue may offend your sensibilities, this blog is not a venue for hate. I do not hate individuals embracing beliefs in opposition to mine but I am perplexed by some of those beliefs. I hope that my writing will present a controversial topic in a new way so that we may better understand one another.
On occasion, comments are made that respond directly to an issue that may be the commenter’s personal concern or may contain information that is not intended for public viewing. I reserve the right to edit or delete those comments once I have responded to them.
