However, I am constrained. One, even though my blog is never listed a the official voice of anything, other than my own voice, I do realize that as a minister, I represent my congregation, and my denomination. Things that I say shouldn't reflect badly on these institutions. I also have rules that I have set for myself, rules that I pay strict observance and I don't break. I don't post curse words on line. I respect the humanity of others. I try to be respectful because I want others to respect me. I try to be kind, because I like it when others are kind to me. Sometimes, I might try to educate and sway opinion a bit, but I do not set out to deliberately provoke and outrage people. I don't like being upset and take no delight in upsetting others. I blog because I enjoy it, not because I am seeking to have a larger and larger readership. So I am constrained by external and outside forces and that is just fine with me.
