A Message to Every Idiot on Facebook, Especially the Ones I Love.
I have fondness and respect for you all or you wouldn't be on my friends list, but your refusal to see that belittling anyone for having different beliefs than yours doesn't make you enlightened, special, or particularly educated. What saddens me most is that those of you most guilty of this are the ones who see yourself as open-minded, liberal, and accepting.
No one in the world agrees with or supports your every opinion and self-chosen cause. If they do, they’re selling something or trying to get you into bed. The more you lambast people for failing to see social issues through the same eyes you do, the more you proclaim your own ignorance, bigotry, and hate.
Before you applaud these statements, please understand, I’m talking to you, whether you are redneck, Christian, racist, gay, straight, purple, or obssesively passionate about puppies.
Preaching about your support of whatever cause you claim to champion and then calling someone else a hatemonger for having a different opinion is without a doubt the most close-minded, assinine ignorance imaginable.
Most importantly, whatever your stance, on whatever issue, stop Googling verses from the Bible to support your babbling fascism. You missed the point of the Bible or you wouldn’t be defiling it by using it to support your rotting soapbox.
You want respect and acceptance? Try showing some.
