I have noticed a good bit of talk about Obama over the last two days. Especially since Obama spoke out about stance on gay marriage. Actually it started yesterday whenever he first made the “announcement”, the outpour of support was awesome. Just awesome. I don’t think I even saw one negative comment about it yesterday. I went to bed last night thinking that this just might be it. The change we need.
Until I started checking Facebook this morning. One of the first status’ from a friend I read was pretty nasty, and to be honest it was very shocking. From a “friend” that I remembered as being super sweet and caring. To hear such hate coming from her was a great shock. I felt like she had personally attacked me with her words. Why on earth would she spew such hate? Did she not care who she hurt with her words? Then I thought, is she teaching her children this hate? The more I thought the more angry I became. This is not okay. She wasn’t the only one, either. So many people who I thought I knew were saying similar things.
Im not proud to admit that I went on a short rant on Facebook about how I would like to punch anyone in the face that was posting all the hate. I am however proud of how many friends that did support my stance. Im happy to know that the great majority of my friends were good people. However, as I see the people posting hate I will be unfriending them. While I could just ignore their hate, Ive chosen to remove the nastiness from my life.If you’re new here I appologize for the political/religious talk. I try very hard not to talk about it, but I needed to vent.
