Seeking to Understand Anti-Vaccers’ Justification, Freedom, to Refuse I Pondered the Following …

I get it. No one likes to be forced to do something they don’t want to do, however, stating freedom of choice as a primary justification for not getting vaccinated raised these questions and thoughts for me. Ironically, anti-vaccers’ decision imprisons the rest of the population forcing us to stay in pandemic mode longer thereby increasing health care costs, decreasing regular health care access, increasing government taxes and spending by extending the pandemic, financial hardship to people most in need, including essential workers, plus families, businesses, communities, schools, and nations, escalating real estate and rental costs and availability, product availability and subsequent increased prices, job losses, education setbacks, preventable deaths, increased weaknesses for the vulnerable, and more, plus division versus unity when we need to stand together to overcome the evil of the pandemic.

Beyond all these and other considerations, getting vaccinated is an act of love because love considers others as well as one’s self and it is only love that overcomes evil.

RESPECT … It’s a “Live and Let Live” Thing Unless …

Where Does the Boldness and Confidence Come From To Do Something Unfamiliar, Uncommon … Extra Ordinary?

Now I understand why most people think I’m crazy, as I certainly have too, because they, like me, did not or do not know about or believe in the Biblical “Gifts of the Spirit” including but not limited to wisdom, knowledge, healing and the “Gift of Faith.”

To some degree we all have faith. We sit on a chair and trust it to hold us. We go to sleep and trust we will wake in the morning. We get into a car and trust we will get where we want to go. Women get pregnant and trust they will bear a child … etc. etc. etc. This is everyday, familiar, and normal faith we are all blessed with.

Then there are times or people who are blessed by the Holy Spirit with a “Gift of Faith” … an extra shot of faith to believe and do something out of the ordinary, such as establish worldwide ministries, serve as missionaries, serve as scientists who study for years to discover breakthroughs, parents raising disabled children, world explorers, and the list goes on and on. For me, I never felt experienced the desire or faith to have and raise children, but I do feel strongly about every life being treated as valuable, simply for being a life.

This all came to a head 25 years ago when I argued with God about the state of the world, how could He allow the trauma, the horrors, etc. I demanded that if He wanted me to stay in this world He had to give me a purpose, something that had been lacking in my spirit, or to take me home. What He gave me was the notion of making respect a global principle to reduce this world’s horrors. Since then, the road has been extremely challenging, made more so because I now know most people I know or have met, are not aware about the extra ordinary gifts of faith the Holy Spirit gives people to accomplish goals beyond the familiar and normal.

So, hopefully, now with this shared knowledge people will be able appreciate versus dis the people God designed to do unusual things to help make the world a better place.

Do You Choose To Be A Pro Lifer? Be Prepared To Be Responsible For The Consequences

by Connecting The Dots With The Respect Principle


Freedom is the ability to choose what is right for one’s own life, barring our choices do not harm others.

That being said, that qualifier to freedom stands also as the basis of the argument for the many people who have designated themselves as pro-lifers.

Yet, the whole truth of being a pro-life advocate means much more than being anti-abortion. Instead, the whole truth of being a pro-life advocate requires taking everything into consideration and making the required social and legal changes long before one can conscientiously call his or her self a pro-lifer.

But before we dig into the complexities to be considered, let us first address the argument put forward by many Christians … that abortion is murder and therefore breaks a commandment. For those who are unfamiliar with the Bible, consider this truth … When Jesus came he was asked by his disciples what were the greatest commandments and he replied, “Love God with all you heart and soul and love you neighbor as you love yourself … and even as I have loved you” aware as he was that all people sin and God forgives all sin when Jesus is embraced, so focusing on one sin and disregarding others is also a sin because Christians are not supposed to judge others because as people we do not see the true heart of people and the truth behind their choices.

Now beyond the spiritual, let us also consider the practical, logical, and compassionate consequences of our decision to legally enforce abortion prevention.


Unwanted Children

One of the biggest determinants of children derailing in their childhood, teen and in adult years results from, even more than abuse and violence, being unwanted and/or abandoned.

Not just maladjusted, feeling unwanted and abandoned transforms children’s healthy social development into a variety of unhealthy compensating thinking and behavior, often with unconscious awareness, that seeks to fill the voids created by being unwanted and abandoned, not just physically, but most importantly emotionally.

Children’s protection and welfare agencies are overwhelmed with the consequences of women and men having children to fill the voids in their lives, naively thinking having children will fill that void that only awareness and healing will resolve.

Fostering and adopting someone else’s children, especially those with the expected behavioral problems can exacerbate a child or teen’s feelings of feeling unwanted and abandoned as does the shuffling from home to home if the child’s reactions to his or her circumstances challenges the caregivers too much and they also abandon the children and youths.

Living environments, especially group homes, that do not take into a child or teen’s “Love Language” (see Gary Chapman’s “The Five Languages of Love) and Personality Type” (see the Myers-Briggs Personality Type, known as the MBTI books and related materials) into careful consideration, add more fuel to increasing sadness or anger levels, resulting in severe depression and even suicide. Children and teens who run away often become victimized further by pedophiles, pimps, human traffickers and murderers. And, of course, for other children and teens, a turn to crime to vent their anger and pain on others rather than solely on themselves, fosters the development not just of liars and thieves, but also of rapists and murderers, including serial killers and terrorists.

And then there is the scenario of a woman who becomes impregnated by a relative due to incest or a rapist and then, because of the law, is forced to bear the child. Should a mother or child be forced to endure a further violation of a woman’s right to choose, plus have to deal with the consequences of having to raise the child or the angst born of giving the child away or selling the child or even killing the born child or having to share custody and care with a molester or rapist?

The question begged is would you want to be a mother or child forced into those circumstances and the debilitating outcomes?

Social and Economic Constructs

Democracy, the right to choose, serves as one of the foundation of the western world. Laws would not have to made if people were respectful of everyone’s right to make their own choices and were also respectful by not violating another person’s person or belongings.

But as the burdened justice system reveals people from all walks of life disrespect democracy and people, often because they too were disrespected in various degrees.

With capitalism another staple defining our western culture, there is outrage by some people, including and especially those who label themselves as pro-lifers who are fearful of our nations becoming socialistic, that all goods and services would be divided equally, versus democratic and capitalistic, yet those pro-lifers are in fact fostering the need for more social services by forcing women to have children they do not want or cannot afford to care for themselves and are unlikely to receive support from the genetic father either.

Sadly, capitalism remains more of a vision than a reality for the majority of western culture because of the illusion of meritocracy, that if you work hard you will have the same opportunities for unusual success, which is not true. If you have even been poor, impoverished, living below the poverty level, you know how hard living can truly be. You are at the whim of landlords, many of which are disrespectful and often abusive. You are vulnerable to those who prey on the vulnerable. Privacy is often a wish rather than a reality in your living space and also if you have to deal with social agencies who scrutinize every area of your life as well as in communities. Most people assume the poor steal, though I have witnessed theft at all income levels. You are prohibited from much of what those above the poverty level take for granted … secure Internet access, good credit ratings now required for jobs as well as for securing a place to live and getting back and forth from where we need to go. Then there’s healthcare, dental care, vision care, and even counseling for the depression poverty can also burden us with. And then of course there is the time required to shop, find the best food prices, carry food home in the kind of open bags susceptible to the weather’s exposure (I don’t know why retailers have not realized that putting lockers near the entrances and exits would allow walkers to put their knapsacks and other over-the-shoulder zippered bags and would ease the pressure on staff to watch the stereotypical potential shoplifters rather than the non-stereotypical ones), which are much kinder to a person’s body when loaded with purchases rather than pulling shoulder sockets from the weight, especially over time, and the list goes on. 

Adding to capitalism’s dark side also is the greed to have as much as possible that compels employers to provide the very minimum they pay employees. And with the change from full time work with benefits to part time work with benefits and now contract work with no benefits, businesses and organizations have also pushed, because of greedy capitalism, the need for more social services and non-profit support. Consider the parent(s) who send their children to school hungry and who also cannot afford school supplies once provided by schools … and so the list goes on.

What is pro-life about having so much while people are living in parks on the streets, while people also suffer from malnutrition because cheap food is processed, packaged that starves the body and creates illnesses from inflammation from not being real food the body recognizes and needs for health.


Reflecting one of the most in-our-face consequences of not being a truly pro-lifer stares back at us everyday … The earth is humanity’s home.

For years, we have done what we wanted to the earth and its inhabitants without seriously considering the consequences. We have polluted the air we breathe to the point that earth itself has become unbalanced and sick, raging with its own diseases of severer weather, high velocity storms, volcanoes, tsunamis, droughts, floods, and wildfires. We have annihilated species, even for pleasure, though often born of ignorance of the consequences or a lack of caring and respect. We have taken animals into our homes and discarded, abandoned them when they no longer suited our interests. We have taken creatures into our homes that naturally harm us because they are not meant to live with us.

We eat meat and instead of using the hides for clothing and repairable footwear, we decorate furniture and accessories with the prized products rather than using them for the care for the many. Do you know what shows up inmost recycled/used clothing shops … footwear that looks new but has seldom been worn much because of the discomfort and even pain the unforgiving manmade materials create.

Locally grown food seldom feeds its communities, is transported and transformed into a lot of processed food that is cheapish, has few nutrients, fills bodies with stuff a body does not recognize or cannot use and therefore dumps the substances in our bodies where it should not be, creating inflammation and preventable illnesses.

Health care of our abused bodies has become big business rather than the stewardship of the bodies that carry our souls and spirits.

A once-healthy planet managed by people who do not value all life shows us clearly what we truly need to advocate for … and what to keep our noses out of.


Perhaps next time we want to describe ourselves as a pro lifer … anti abortion advocates … we will consider at least these, if not all of the consequences of taking such a stance and forcing it on others, that we will instead put our efforts towards making the changes that will eliminate, as much as possible, the need for an aborted pregnancy, becoming the change agents our whole world needs.

This World is Tough on Everyone …

COURAGE … that quality of mind or spirit enabling one to meet danger or opposition with fearlessness, calmness, and firmness

ENCOURAGE … To inspire with courage, hope, or resolution, hearten, help, foster, be favourable toward, boost confidence

DISCOURAGE … To weaken courage or lessen confidence, deter, dissuade, obstruct, hinder, attempt to repress by disapproval

And APATHY … silence, inaction, indifference, unconcern, lack of care, emotion and interest is discouragement’s silent weapon

THIS WORLD is tough on everyone. THIS WORLD would be much better if we encouraged, rather than discouraged each other.

When I first conceptualized “Respect as a Principle” to address …

Talking about my idea to an acquaintance, she asked me, “What if someone stole your idea?”

I smiled and replied, “That would prove they did not get the concept.”

With the concept initially recorded several years ago as the idea behind the non-profit corporation I founded as “It is All About Respect, Inc.” I closed the non-profit and renamed the initiative, “Connecting The Dots With The Respect Principle,” and registered the company as my sole proprietorship that will one day become a Limited Liability Partnership.

From the beginning I attracted encouragement from several people, but I also attracted naysayers. What surprised me the most though were the people who wanted to take my work and run with it … without paying for my years of study, research, and experience, nor my creative efforts in discovering, naming, and writing based on the concept. And the people who wanted to take my work were professionals who saw the potential and wanted to take the credit as well as infringe on my copyright for their gains. A few memorable examples include a friend, who obviously was not a friend, a social worker, a community organization employee, and a consultant.

I used to worry about the theft of over 25 years work, but thankfully, as someone who has finally put my faith in God and His protection, because this was His idea anyway when I yelled at Him during my dark night of the soul and demanded, “If you exist, give me a purpose or take me home!” now I do not.

So, here I still am, 25 years later, healed and prepared to go all the way transforming respect from a discretionary value to a global principle by helping people to understand why the concept … the idea … the philosophy is sound … logical, practical, and compassionate.

Stay tuned!

Life, at times, is hard for everyone, but for some of us …

Life, at times, is hard for everyone … but for some of us, those of us who don’t “fit” in with the normal around us, it is harder and more traumatic. Most “normals/the majority” want us to be like them, to reflect their beliefs and their choices. But when we do not believe as they do, choose as they do, and act as they do … because we do not know how or finally refuse to do so because not being allowed to be ourselves breaks our spirit … to the point that many people finish the job people started by the normals/majority judging, ridiculing, ostracizing, abandoning, or worse … by taking their own lives directly or putting themselves in dangerous circumstances or by addictions or simply by giving up … because they have not yet realized they are valuable too … simply for being a life.

Because of God I did not. He never left me though I did not know that for most of my life. So my job, the purpose He gave me, is to shine for who I am and the purpose He gave me so I would stay in this world to help the minority, the outcasts, and the rejects, the majority want to disappear, plus educate the majority about what they are doing and the consequences for them personally and for all of humanity … socially and economically.
