I’m running through my usual blogs and news sites and it just occurred to me, no matter what you do, no matter what I do, everyone is part of a hate group.
I legitimately don’t hate Christians. But I really don’t like Christianity — or any religion — at all.
I’m sure my Christian friends don’t necessarily hate me. But they hate the shit I write about or say about the things they hold dear.
But this realization that everyone seems to be associated with hate, it’s really dampening the definition of hate.
Pretty soon, we’ll all realize that hate needs an upgrade. Hate will have a definition like “bad” did in the 80s. It assumed the opposite of its traditional meaning.
Hate will soon need a plus sign after it. Or a decimal point with numbers following it. You might hate.001 a dog pooping on your lawn but you hate.566 ignorance and hate.999 abortionists, or something like that.
The next time you tell me what you hate, please be specific.
That way I know the exact level of your hate.
