When you make fun of another group or enjoy seeing the group get triggered by what is being said online or in the news, something is wrong. No, I'm not making this up. It was on Twitter. Why should I not be surprised!
People don't even realize what their words mean or how they come across. If they do, they don't care. If they don't understand, it makes you wonder if they realize what being human is all about.
I see people talk about how much they love God and how their beliefs are the right thing. In the next breath, they shower their hatred among those that they don't agree with and if you call them out on it, you're the one that doesn't understand. They are so blind with the log in their eyes that they can't see just how their words don't match up to the concept of love.
Politics of course is ripe with hatred for one another. They don't even care that they put down another group of people as long as it gets them votes. Out of ignorance, they proclaim hatred all the time without skipping a beat. It must give them a reason for their life's existence.
Online Social Media is one of the worst places to go if you want to see anything but hate. It is so quickly displayed in Facebook and Twitter and not one of these people can see that it hurts others deeply. In fact, I think online social media thrives on it and it is pretty sad because it really damages other people.
Why on earth would one want to intentionally inflict pain upon another person unless they are so miserable in their own life, that this is the only way they know to exist in their lives. Maybe they prop themselves up by putting others down. Maybe it is the way they give life and liberty and freedom to themselves, by despising those that they don't agree with and accept.
Hatred is so blinding to people and it causes ignorance to inflate as big as it can get. It doesn't matter if the people who hate are the ones that act as if they deplore hatred, because as long as they are doing it, it makes them feel superior. Anyone else that shows the same is acting in a stupid manner.
I'm really tired of seeing hate so displayed every day. Surely we have the capacity to be more than that. Surely we don't need to kill and ridicule and preach hatred from our church pulpits. Maybe we could actually try loving one another and giving each other the respect that should be rightfully a part of being human.
Hopefully one of these days we will evolve as humans, not become those that hate more than the people we despise. I hold out hope, but more and more it becomes harder to hold on to hope. If we continue to hate, how long will it take before there is no one left in the world.
