0822 - Hate will not win

Via sideband:

I am the mother who told her lesbian daughter to invite her girlfriend over for dinner.

I am the father who punished his son for calling you a fag.

I am the preacher who told my congregation that love, not hate, is the definition of a true follower of God.

I am the girl who did not learn the meaning of "homosexual" until high school but never thought to question why two men might be kissing.

I am the woman who argues (quite loudly and vehemently) with the bigots who insist that you do not have the right to marry or raise children.

We are the high school class who agrees, unanimously, along with our teacher, that love should be all that matters.

If you agree, repost this. Do it. You don't have to be afraid. You can handle it. You're stronger than you think.

I am making a difference. Hate will not win.


Yes, I'm a conservative. (Just listen to the song I've got attached to this entry!) That doesn't mean that I subscribe to the hatred of the religious right.

current mood: [mood icon] peaceful
current music: Ted Nugent - Kiss My Ass

Most conservatives don't, it's just the whack-os that stand out.

That's why I wish Green Day would just shut up sometimes.

Green Day? What, are they out on one end or the other of the spectrum? I know they're a musical group, but that's it...

Lol, Green Day's pulling this big rebellious thing where they blame Bush for everything. *rolls eyes* [/music nerd rant]

Perhaps one day you will learn why statements like these also mean you should stop referring to "the Left" as a single monolithic entity and stop painting everyone who sits left-of-center with the same broad brush.
