The Sinful Disease of Hatred

"Anyone who hates his brother is a murderer,..."
-- 1 John 3:15

I watched the sentencing of Dharun Ravi today, in the Rutger's spycam case. Ravi was sentenced by Judge Glenn Berman for his role in spying on his college roommate, Tyler Clementi. Shortly after a couple of incidents of spying in September of 2010, Clementi would jump to his death off the George Wasington bridge.

The horror of this, and so many similar cases, should give reason for our society to re-examine it's hatred for those who differ from what is definied as "normal" in terms of sexuality. Sad to say, those infected with such hatred will respond much like Ravi, who refuses to see any connection between his criminal acts and Clemtenti's suicide. The self-righteous often attempt to pretend they inhabit some moral high ground, and repeat the tired "hate the 'sin,' not the 'sinner' " bullshit -- with all of the insight of a parrot.

Homosexuality is found in nature: hence, it is not "un-natural." The percentages in nature do not matter -- it is a natural, thus legitimate human experience. Hatred, on the other hand, is not found in nature: it is a man-made disease, that is un-naturally transmitted from one person to another. It is illegitimate. Yet, once unleased on a population, it demands a greater existence, much like a virus. And those who benefit from hatred -- who do so in a perverse way, I should add -- and those ignorant fools who become consumed by hatred, always look for some statistical minority to focus that hatred upon.

Lately, we've heard many of the hate-infected population say, "The bible clearly defines marriage as being between one man and one woman." Hence, we know those people are either purposely lying, or have never read the bible. Nor, if they have read it, do the grasp the meaning of the above quote, which falls among what are known as the harsh teachings of the book. These are aimed directly and exclusively at the self-righteous -- in this case, those fools who label nature as "sin," and who hatefully drive good and decent human beings to suicide.

A society that accepts the hateful making their brothers' and sisters' lives painful in this manner also owns the sin.

1. Excellent.

However, I must disagree with one of your points.

Hatred is not an invention of our species, for it exists in Nature, and apart from humans.

I have been around dogs and cats all of my life, and I can tell you, animals do experience hate. We have a one year old Chihuahua we rescued. There are certain objects in the house he hates, for he reacts to them with sudden anger and violence when confronted with them. There are certain people I know my dogs have hated, given their behavior when those individuals are around.

I've seen this type of behavior in all of my pets, dogs and cats alike - and even a parrot. They react in much the same way we humans do to things we hate - we want it away from us, and if it won't go, we are prone to attack it to try and make it go away.

And...humanity is the spawn of this world; we are, like the birds and the bees, the flowers and the trees, natural creatures, and thus also a part of Nature.

3. Hatred is a form of storytelling, which is why it isn't found among other animals.

It is up to us to tell different stories.

4. Sorry, but hatred is perfectly natural human behaviorism.
