If you are a fan of Android and you do not like Apple, we can be friends.

If you think smart phones are sucking the life and social capabilities right out of our younger generation
and you wish phones were just phones, we can still. be. friends.
I just don’t get it. The hate. As soon as Apple announced the new iphone, the Adroidians came out of the woodwork, crying in outrage that a big to-do was being made out of something they have had for a few years now. The iphonians did not tolerate such claims and immediately took to the defense of their beloved Apple and proclaimed it to be the perfection of the second-rate product that has already been on the market. The back and forth is worse than the great Pepsi-Coke debate.
It. Doesn’t. Matter.
I cannot stress enough how much it doesn’t matter. I have friends who have iphones (3-6) and I have friends who have flip phones and Android phones galore! I have never and will never judge a person by the phone they use. It does not define them or their heart. Sorry, this seams so simple, but my news feed has been FLOODED by the battle of the bend and the size matters argument and the price versus the product and I just cannot understand why a company who obviously has created a culture of cult following and high profits is under such attack! They are a business doing what businesses (that succeed) do!
Do I have a preference? Sure. Do I care enough to share it and defend it? Nope. It just doesn’t matter. If I start using it as criteria for any aspect of our friendship, then I will have to also judge you based on the car you drive, the clothes you wear, the party you vote for, and the church you attend. So, lets just eliminate all that and let me tell you. I care about how well you respect others. I care about how kind you are and I care about who you want to be. Beyond that, well, it’s just not my place to care. I am called to love not judge. So in the name of love, not judgement, stop it! Stop hating on the phone you don’t have. Love the one your with applies to this little scenario.
I refuse to let my phone define me or you!
