Bad Monday made worse

Some trifling ass individual took it upon himself to open fire on a church in Knoxville, Tenn.

The church was gay-friendly and the shooter supposedly hated "liberals," "blacks," "gays," and folks who were different from him.

Things have become so damned ugly when it comes to polarization in America.

When Bush was elected, I never thought it was the end of the world. I certainly didn't vote for him but when he was sworn it, I never felt the need to stand on South Carolina highways wailing like a banshee and tearing my clothing.

It's sad that we have gotten to the point where people are marked as the "enemy" in society.

Now at this point, I could go on a tangent about One News Now. All one has to do is read the comments on that "news site" to get the gist of what I am talking about.

However, I won't because it would make me sound a bit hypocritical, especially when one takes into account how I have talked about the lies of the "anti-gay industry."

I will say that I have never advocated violence. I have always advocated fighting lies against the lgbt community by spreading truth and letting people know the distortions told about us.

And I have said on many occasions that there is nothing wrong with someone believing that homosexuality is a sin.

My problem is when organizations are knowingly spreading false and discredited data while at the same time embracing principles like God and country.

In the long run, I don't believe that anyone who disagrees with homosexuality is inherently evil or intolerant. And I certainly don't believe that they deserve to be executed

When it's all said and done, this situation will be remembered as one of a coward who, instead of taking care of business, blamed other people for his problems and took it upon himself to hurt innocents; some who probably didn't know him from Adam and others who would have probably helped him if he talked to them rather than shoot them.

But we can all learn from this incident. We do need to watch our words and pull back from our pronouncements of doom.

You never know who we may be giving perfect excuses to.
