Bruce Tenenbaum | Posted 03.04.2014 | TV
Bruce Tenenbaum

Feel free to disagree, as I'm sure many who "stand with Phil" will, but if you think believing and saying hateful things about entire groups of people is okay because of some alleged word of God, then my wish is that someday you truly see the light.

You, the faceless one, who hides behind empty words. You, the unhappy one, spreading your misery through harassment and humiliation. You, the angry one, trying to feel powerful by intimidating others with your hate. I refuse to let you hurt me.

Republicans, the gig is up. We are on to you. The truth: if Republicans say it, then the opposite is true. So stop repeating the lies, or just stop talking. Let us examine some well-known sound-bites that those on the right love to spout and repeat.

The Vulgarity of Our Times

Mark Rubinstein | Posted 11.26.2013 | Books
Mark Rubinstein

To me, the vulgarity in the novel was not its language. What truly makes me cringe -- the most vulgar and obscene things in life -- are humanity's ubiquitous displays of unrelenting greed, hatred, intolerance, and the unquenchable need of people to make war.

Jeri was traveling light because she understood that carrying grudges from the past was non-productive, even self-destructive. It is, as the saying goes, like swallowing poison and expecting it to kill someone else.

Not everyone is going to like or approve of what you hope to accomplish in life. And the really good news is that you don't need them to.

Terrorists Are Morons

David Katz, M.D.

To the extent terrorism is about advancing some agenda other than adding to the world's supply of misery and hatred, it is a total failure. It absolutely never works.

What Killed President Kennedy and Trayvon Martin?

Marian Wright Edelman | Posted 04.25.2013 | Politics
Marian Wright Edelman

While there are troubling undertones of racial suspicion and fear in Trayvon Martin's killing which must be addressed as justice is sought, the fact is that most Black young people murdered by guns are killed by Black shooters -- just as most White children and teens murdered by guns are killed by White shooters. Sadly the tragedies of Tucson, Aurora, Newtown and elsewhere made clear that none of us are safe anywhere or immune to the pervasive threat of gun violence. We are all in the same boat and must act together to stop the plague of violence. Gun safety laws that only apply in one city or state can't fully stop our national epidemic of gun proliferation and violence any better than we can stop a flu epidemic by vaccinating one family.

Bruce Reyes-Chow

Hate is a powerful driving force and when repeatedly called upon, it strips us all of our humanity. As a parent, I do not forbid saying the word, but its use never goes unchallenged by a conversation with my children about what they are feeling. 

I Hate Nazis. And I'm Okay With That

Michael Gene Sullivan

No, I don't think I should love my enemies and no, I am not diminished in any way by my hate. Oh, and I can hate both the game and the player. Because anyone who freely chooses to play a hateful game deserves to be hated

Taking the time to really get to know someone else seems to be an increasingly lost art. Too often we settle for knowing something about the person, rather than actually getting to know the person he really is inside.

The Psychology of a Hater

Malik Yusef | Posted 07.06.2012 | Entertainment
Malik Yusef

How do you define a hater? List qualities of a friend. Look at that list. Haters won't possess the qualities you seek out in people. Sometimes we have friends that are constantly tearing us apart -- no constructive criticism, just negativity.

Angst Over Extinction

Arthur Goldwag

Totalizing, programmatic hatreds are what Freud would have called thanatopsic obssessions -- they are driven by a fear of one's own extinction.

The History Of Anti-Semitism

To understand why hatreds endure, we have to confront history. Histories that are not confronted can never be reconciled and yet most people -- including many Jews-- know very little about the history of antisemitism.

Is The Person You Hate Just A Reflection Of Yourself?

Dennis Merritt Jones | Posted 09.04.2011 | Healthy Living

When I am willing to catch myself red-handed in the judgment of others, realizing that ultimately the person whom I am really judging is myself, the awareness I need most comes flooding in.
