Celebrating Death Is the Epitome of Hate

If you cheer the death of your political adversaries, you are part of what’s wrong with society today

We now cheer the death of those with whom we disagree.

If you hate a hater, you become a hater

I was neither a fan nor a regular listener of Rush Limbaugh.

When you hate a hater, it makes a hater out of you

If you want to resist something, resist hate

We don’t just disagree anymore. We hate each other.

Love and listening are the only way forward
