I come not to praise him but to bury him...

A preacher in the US died yesterday. He was a preacher of hatred and intolerance and, before we breathe even the smallest sigh of relief, we should keep in mind that there are dozens of hate-mongers waiting to take his place.

Hatred trumps tolerance at this point in time in the US. None of us should be so blind that we don't see it. And the only way we're going to diminish its power is to stop preaching it. Stop preaching it to each other. Stop preaching it to our children.

This preacher was fairly well known and powerful. It is up to us to undo all the evil that he spread upon the earth. You might want to start now.

I'm not 100% convinced its just the preacher ... what about all the dumbasses who believe them?
