  •  They condone bullying-- (12+ / 0-)

    not merely lbgt-related--because they subscribe to an authoritarian, scarcity-model, topsy-turvy worldview that corrupts everything it touches, infusing it with hate.

    I am intimately familiar with this mentality.

    Very much, I was reared on "in-groups, out-groups" thinking. There were "outsiders" and "insiders." You wanted to be on the "inside," of course. It meant you were worthy of respect and love. Church. School. Home. It's taken many years of my adult life to begin to shake this toxic thinking, to stop myself from comparing myself mentally with every other person who walks in the room: you know, are they "more" or "less" worthy than I am?

    It's here they got the range/ and the machinery for change/ and it's here they got the spiritual thirst. --Leonard Cohen
