This was written in response to a post my friend put on his blog.
He talked about the followers of the "God hates fags" movement.
He was quite vexed, with reason.
It seems to me that lately, the cool thing to do is to hate people who hate gays.
But don't we just cause more hate by doing this?
It is my opinion, that hate is a result of fear.
But to act upon any emotion, even hatred or fear, requires some degree of courage.
Take fear for example.
Without any courage, one would just freeze and allow whatever happens to happen.
With a little bit of courage, one might have the presence of mind to run away.
With more courage, one might stand and fight.
I think that hate itself is a result of courage, as well as fear.
And, lets face it, the world is a scary place.
It could use some extra courage.
