    Here's my take on it - the revolution will not be blogged, it has to be slogged. - Deoliver47

      left to say.  Although, I have to admit sometimes I feel a little like that guy in the Austin Powers movie that says "If there's one think I cannot stand, it's people who are intolerant."

      I'll believe corporations are people when one comes home from Afghanistan in a body bag.

        "I know that there are people in this world who do not love their fellow human being, and I hate people like that!"

        very accepting of others.

        But I don't tolerate hate.

        So when this pastor and his crew decide to atone for their hateful ways, I'll certainly be willing to be tolerant of them.

        The idea that we have to tolerate hate, bigotry and prejudice comes straight from the RWNJ victimization handbook. If we don't tolerate all of their ugliness, it's somehow OUR fault.

        That's a false framing. It defies logic; it defies the very definition of what words mean, and in this case, it defies the teachings of that Jesus Dude.

        So you should feel righteous in being bigoted against hate and those who espouse it. In fact, I rather admire you for it.

        So if you get hit by a bus tonight, would you be satisfied with how you spent today, your last day on earth? Live like tomorrow is never guaranteed, because it's not. -- Me.
