War And Piece

Values War and Piece

The emails Andrew Sullivan gets fuel my despair about where America is headed. The hatred, the intolerance. Why do Republicans hate gay people so??? And why do they let Rove fan the flames of this hatred which can only incite violence?

"I wonder if you noticed that yesterday all eleven states that considered the question of gay marriage voted to ban it. ALL ELEVEN. I think this sends a very clear message -- true Americans do not like your kind of homosexual deviants in our country, and we will not tolerate your radical pro-gay agenda trying to force our children to adopt your homosexual lifestyle. You should be EXTREMELY GRATEFUL that we even let you write a very public and influential blog, instead of suppressing your treasonous views (as I would prefer). But I'm sure someone like yourself would consider me just an "extremist" that you don't need to worry about. Well you are wrong -- I'm not just an extremist, I am a real American, and you should be worried because eleven states yesterday proved that there are millions more just like me who will not let you impose your radical agenda on our country."

Read it and weep. And these are the people who are going to bring democracy to the Middle East? These are the people who are proud of Abu Ghraib. These are the kind of people who become Timothy McVeigh.

What happened to decency in America? What happened to the religious values of tolerance and respect for human life? Treating others as one wishes to be treated?
