With all the violence, bullying, name calling and hate crimes going on lately it almost makes you believe in the Mayan calendar. Religions promoting and bullying each other. Adults and children doing the same. Talk radio spewing vile and hateful rhetoric. We’re going to blow up our world if we don’t get a handle on this and it is terrifying.
Hate is an emotion no one should ever learn. I know it’s been around forever, but that doesn’t make it right. It doesn’t mean it should continue. We’re not born hating. Should we be taught it doesn’t mean we should continue such teaching. Words or actions spoken in front of little eyes and ears make too big an impression.
Do I agree with all the beliefs and lifestyles of others. No, but I respect their right to them. Do I believe I have the right to tell others how to live their lives, take care of their families, take care of themselves. No, and I don’t believe anyone of us has that right.
I believe God put us all here on this earth. Each of us is his creation and we have no right to mar it, taunt it, deprive it or harm it. I believe the differences are there to teach us that we must learn and live together for the betterment of all mankind. I think he judges us on how we treat our fellow human being, no matter what the differences are. That we are different in order to learn tolerance, humility, and co-existence. That Jesus suffered and died on the cross to show us how wrong this is and we learned nothing. I believe we are still being tested and failing miserably.
Not one of us is better than any other and we must remove this notion from our minds.
Stop the Hate! If you feel it, Keep It to Yourself, DON’T SPREAD IT!
