Reject hate

Caught this bunch of tossers on the news this morning — the usual hate and vitriol that does no one any good. You might notice this particularly ugly little branch of ‘Christian’ zealots have venom to spare for gays as well as Muslims. You can almost see them in your mind’s eye, these pathetically scared little people, grasping at their vile belief in some attempt at making themselves feel better. Dictators know very well the power to be gained by getting your flock to hate someone else — we all like to feel that we’re a wee better than someone else, don’t we? That little superiority complex to prop up our inferiority complex. Feeling left out? Economy not so good? Life’s a bit shite? Here, follow me, son, and I’ll make you feel better about yourself by hurting someone else. Jackboots or a crucifix, it’s all the same. I can imagine how they’re relishing the attention, too; lovin’ the self-inflicted martyrdom that comes with uttering such vile inanities. I don’t trust zealots, no matter their creed. I wonder if there’s a way to get them to break out of their little boxes of myopic belief and see the true wonder of everything the world has to offer.

  1. This is sickening – urggh…When are people going to learn and I so echo what you just said ‘see the true wonder of everything the world has to offer.’ I’m so over the HATE in the world.

    Peace Out ♥

  2. The problem with following any ‘one true’ creed is that it necessarily rules out the acceptance of the ‘the other’. And what you can’t accept is a natural thing to blame. One of the most frustrating things about humans, methinks.
    Hopefully one day we’ll ‘evolve’ away from dogma?
