"Freedom of Speech", #AmendmentNotReally

So, one of the most popular amendments that Americans commonly throw around supposedly to justify their any and every comment, thought, written expression or otherwise... However I have noticed a popular similarity that is disturbing.... It appears that this amendment seems to cover a sheer disproportionate amount of   dereliction and ideology that supports the mass media's agenda over even logical ideas. If someone dare speak out against the status quo, based on obvious truth's, their religion or their experience, they are met with serious backlashes. I want to address this because it is not right and it has been noted by myself and other's that continuously are perceived as negative, judgmental and old fashioned. If you as an individual so feel compelled to promote whatever you choose too, whatever god you choose to worship and or whatever lifestyle you choose to engage in... I too have the right to share mine. Even if mine is not in conjunction with yours. I am not afraid to say the things that are unpopular.... I am not afraid to speak on the things that my religion promotes or does not promote. I think it is truly saddening that so many that do speak on their platforms are met with so much dissension. I do blame the technology and social media though for taking a comment and spreading it like wildfire. I am disgusted by how so many speak their honest thoughts only to momentarily apologize and recant their words. I believe that just as the Bible informs "from the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks" that whether you catch alot of kickback for stating the facts.. you actually meant it, and should apologize accordingly. For instance, If you offend, do apologize because you offended, don't however pretend as if you misspoke as you did not. However I do encourage those with boldness to keep standing strong. There is certainly a need for your boldness in this current culture, and this is why you came to be in such a time as this. It reminds me of the story of Esther... who started from very humble beginnings but ended up becoming the queen that was in position to advocate for her people when they were in danger of being executed. Sometimes we may look at why we are met with so much slack.. and why it seems that so many are comfortable selling out, supporting and living in a way that not even they were raised to do. We look at them and wonder why they suppress the inner truth in their soul in pursuit of lust, money and power. How they are so comfortable selling their soul for earthly pleasures.. as we are assured the cost is indicatively specified for our actions. However, many more will be typical than radical..... Many more will silence their morals to appease the crowd, than represent the truth, and in many cases I do not even believe truth is the minority... yet it is simply portrayed that way....
