My Biases

My Worldview/My Faith:

I believe that someone's worldview says volumes about what they like and dislike, and that it's the #1 factor in their personal biases. So here's a little about what I believe:

I'm a non-denominational Christ-follower. That means that I believe in one God, the God of the Bible, and that it's His words to us written down by human hands but set by God into their minds (deep and mystical, I know). It also means that although I call myself a "Christian," I'm not a Baptist, a Catholic, a Presbyterian, or any other "faction" like that. I just read the Bible and try to do what it says (which is not easy, let me tell you. I kind of suck at it a lot).

I'm also a Conservative Republican (yes, you can boo--go ahead--or cheer). That means I'm Pro-Life, Pro-Second Amendment (I like being able to protect myself from rapists and thieves, thank you), and Pro-traditional marriage. I'm also gender binary, straight, she/her.

HOWEVER, by virtue of being a Christ-follower, I also believe that it's wrong for me to bash someone on the head with a Bible and say they should die--because I'm a sinner who deserves to burn in hell, so I'm no better than anyone else. I also believe that it's wrong for me to force my beliefs on anyone. I'm just here to tell you what I believe and what I've experienced--which is that God loves you. Yep, you. Doesn't matter what you've done or what you're doing. He loves YOU. Personally, powerfully, deeply.

I believe that everybody was created by God to do something meaningful, even if the world doesn't think it was meaningful. And I believe that any good things or talents someone was given were from God. I believe that it's my #1 duty to teach people about who God really is--not who we think he is.

I also believe that a person's likes and dislikes affect their opinions on stories, so here's a list of mine:
