At Wal-Mart the other day, I saw a woman wearing a Tshirt with the phrase "Haters = Motivators" on the back. I could not see what the front said, but googled the phrase when I got home.
The phrase is a new one (to me) in the battle of 'gay rights', a nomer I personally detest. 'Haters equals motivators' is another. Inspiration and motivation should come from deeper and more meaningful emotions. Hate is a terrible thing which only damages the hater.
I guess, as has been true for many years, I just march to a different drummer. Even those on these pages who may hold ill feelings toward me and my blogs/comments I only see them as being distraught about a social change they do not agree with. I don't think of them as 'haters', and with few exceptions, they have never identified themselves as such. By the way, hate the sin, not the sinner is another phrase I dislike. I like to live without hate for anything.
Hate impedes the hater's happiness, not the hated.
Equality to all in the American way!
