I want to live in a country of great kindness, not a hate-filled one! Too many Americans are running with the bullies–trampling each other with arrogance. It doesn’t appear that America has increased in greatness lately.
We’re spiraling down. Today’s politics has turned friendly discussions into arrogant arguments into angry insults.
Name calling never creates greatness — it only stirs up hatred. Personal insults are not free speech. They are bullying. There’s no “right” to bully! Anybody can be belligerent, but it takes character to respectfully listen to dissent.
Make the choice
Every hateful voice.
I see adults spewing insults,
And making life unnecessarily difficult.
But I’ve found,
It’s sad to be around
Such an angry sound.
This is appalling,
Hatred is demonic.
It’s totally toxic!
To hate is to throw Christianity under the bus. Nominal Christianity seems to be morphing into abominable Christianity. Love matters.
Angry, belligerent “Christians,” don’t inspire people to love Jesus. “Christian” belligerence is based on bad theology and a cold heart.
Crowds can be wrong. In the Bible, false prophets frequently had the most followers. Being belligerent belittles the beauty of the image of God in all human beings.
