Cultivating Hate 3: Make Up Stuff



The pause this Oklahoma State Legislator makes before she foretells the end of civilization in "two decades" is telling. When cultivating hatred, it works well to just fly by the seat of your pants and make up stuff.

If people really know gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender individuals as their friends, neighbors, family -- people whom they love -- it's much more difficult to hate them. Instead, blame the end of the world on them. Make them the "other." That seems to work.

It is stunning that Kern has taken oaths to uphold principles of fairness...but she doesn't see her damning comments about gays and any religion that she deems as "threatening" as "hate speech".

Colette...you are my new hero. You remind me of MY mom! Like me (and my mom)...Ari is fortunate to have an amazing mom in his life.
