Discrimination is discrimination. It doesn’t matter who you discriminate against or for what reason. It is what it is.
We’re all killers. All humans are killers. We discriminate against all other species – including our own. That’s how bad we are. We enslave, torture and slaughter all other species, including our own. That is bad – Not bad-ass.
Yet, we pass judgment on everybody and everything else. Because we think we’re better, we’re superior to all other creatures including all other humans.
God made us that way is our excuse. Everybody else does it is our excuse when the first one doesn’t satisfy. Hey, they let us do it. They didn’t fight back – another lame excuse.
Somehow it sounds less offensive to say we’re all sinners, we’re all in the same insanity boat – made by God by the way – than to call ourselves what we are – killers.
Massaging our guilt does not allow for change of the offensive behavior. It actually perpetuates it.
Oh-h-h massage my guilt. That feels so-o-o-o good.
Now massage mine, okay?? Okay???
Are YOU sleeping?
I’ll massage your guilt tomorrow….
